SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back supper around the family table in every home. This week Isabel at Family Foodie is hosting and the theme is Retro Recipes Then and Now.
Long 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!

I have been MIA for a little while. Sorry. I was so busy with school and work and I just let the blog go. BUT now it is a new year and I hope to come back to blogging on a more consistent basis. I hope you had a great 2012 and will have an even better 2013!
I love biscotti! And I recently found this wonderful recipe with peppermint and candy canes. What could be more perfect for the holidays! I love candy canes and always use them to stir my hot chocolate so this is just too much. Now I can stir my hot chocolate with biscotti! So much chocolate :)
It’s Foodie Pen Pal reveal day! I had a delicious foodie pen pal package from my new friend Diana. It was great! I love getting mail :)
I got peanuts, chocolate, cornbread and blackberry jam. All these items are from Virginia. I have never been to Virginia so this was a nice taste of a new place. I have already finished off the peanuts and chocolate. Next I am going to make some cornbread and I think I am going to make pop tarts out of the blackberry jam :)
If you want to see what I mailed you can go check out Elizabeth over at Being Elizabeth. I sent her a yummy Minnesota package.
Next month we are changing it up and encouraging everyone to donate money to charities for hurricane sandy. You can check more out on that here.
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.
I was given this recipe by a really good friend of mine. I love getting handwritten recipes from people. It feels so authentic and personal to me. These are recipes that people share with their loved ones. And then they took the time to sit down and write it. I adore handwriting. Mine is not the best, but if I write very slowly I can produce something I am proud to share. Also, since people so rarely give handwritten recipes anymore, it feel extra special to me!
I love apple cider. It is one of my favorite things about fall and winter. Drinking the warming, cozy treat is cemented in my memory- associated with home, family and love. This recipe takes those flavors in a whole new direction!
