It’s Anniversary Time!

This time last year, I started Return to Sunday Supper.  It’s been an a great year for so many reasons, but the best is having wonderful readers,  like you!   Last year I wrote 70 posts, went to 4 blog-oriented conferences and met some very interesting folks along the way.

Hopefully, I’ve learned a few things and made improvements that you enjoy.  The biggest leap for me was going from Blogger to WordPress thanks to my wonderful designer, Lindsay Landis of Purr Design.  So many of you have said how much you like the new look and the printable recipe feature.

Last year, I had the opportunity to do this guest post for Jaden Hair, that appeared on her crazy good blog, Steamy Kitchen.  What an experience for a newbie!  Thank you Jaden!

I’m glad that I had a chance to tell you about Common Threads and am excited about sharing more stories of how this organization is making a difference in the lives of disadvantaged families around the country.

The highlight of the year came when CBS Chicago nominated Return to Sunday Supper for “best blog” in the lifestyle category.  Wow, so much excitement surrounded those few weeks.  For all of you who took the time to vote, thank you! I know that everyone is busy and that it took an effort on your part and I want you all to know how much I appreciated it.  It made me feel so good to know that so many of you cared enough to vote.

I’ve given myself new challenges for the coming year.  I’ll be posting a bit more and it won’t always be a recipe.  I’ve added a new category called “observations” where I will explore things that I find interesting, hope you will as well.  Also, I will be delving deeper into the importance of eating with your family.  Of course, Sunday Supper recipes will remain simple and tasty with a few Irish ones as I explore my heritage.

Thank you for joining me on this journey!

      Thanks so much Carol! It was my good luck sitting next to you at the conference! I have to tell you, I won Sourdough Jack’s cookbook on eBay! Looking forward to making the Sourdough Cornbread! My sourdough didn’t make it through the New Year…but, I’m getting more starter from a very good source soon. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks again! Susie
