raspberry jam cakesLong time no see!  I have been so uninspired lately.  I have been busy and just not interested in doing all the work to make something yummy and then take the pictures and create a post.  It was just too much.  Therefore, I knew the only way that I would get back into the kitchen with some gusto would be to do some baking.  When I saw that the Sunday Supper crew were doing retro recipes I decided to dig for some delicious baked good from yesteryear.  And found these lovely cakes to make for any good tea party!

#SundaySupper: Leftover Mashed Potatoes and Beef Croquettes

SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back supper around the family table in every home.  This week Nicole at The Daily Dish Recipes is hosting and the theme is What to do with Thanksgiving Leftovers?

I love Thanksgiving dinner.  We always have family favorites and it is so good.  We normally have leftovers, but my family usually eats the leftovers just like they are.  We don’t make new dishes out of them.  So for this Sunday Supper I had to do a little investigating to see what we could make.

#SundaySupper: Spanish Garlic Soup

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back super around the family table in every home.  This week Susan at The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen is hosting and the theme is dishes that keep you warm.

I have a wonderful book called The Soup Bible.  When sunday supper decided on this theme I went straight for that book.  There is a section called winter warming soup!  Perfect!  I want to try all of them, but this one really stuck out to me.  It has a rather interesting process.  It is very simple.  However, it gets unique at the end.  You ladle the soup into single serving bowls and then crack an egg into it and put bread on top of that and bake it for a few minutes to poach the egg.  It’s brilliant and makes for a full meal.

#SundaySupper: Halloween Popcorn Cake

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back supper around the family table in every home.  This week the theme is Halloween!

I am not a huge halloween fan.  But I know a lot of people who are. :)  Therefore, in order to satisfy all those halloween fanatics I know I decided to make a popcorn cake.  It is so easy and fast.  You can put whatever you want in it.  Even use up some of that candy you have falling out of every nook and cranny in you house.  Plus, because it was molded in a bundt pan it looks pretty cool.  Like you put thought in to it.  Everyone needs a dessert they can throw together in 10 minutes.

#SundaySupper: Chicken Chowder

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back supper around the family table in every home.  This week the theme is comfort food.

Whenever I think of comfort food I always think of soup.  Soup always makes things better.  If I have a cold or if I am homesick I want soup.  Soup always makes me feel better; always warms my soul.  I use to have to go out for soup.  But I am working on it.  I have been collecting soup recipes and slowly but surely attempting to make them.  Some times they are horrible, but lately I have been making some really delicious soup!!!
