What a year! Last year was a big one for the Sunday Supper family. Like you, we set some BIG goals at the beginning of every year! We’re kicking off the new year by looking back at some of our top recipes of the year, and by celebrating our goals! Our number one goal last year was to grow our website and continue to inspire families to spend time around the family table.
We welcomed many new contributors into the Sunday Supper family. They brought with them new, delicious recipes, made with our mission in mind: bringing family back around the dinner table. Thanks to them, our awesome editor and you, our readers, not only did we reach our goal, our website grew in leaps and bounds! We increased our views by 104% over last year.
We want you to take the Sunday Supper Challenge!
We have some BIG goals for the new year, and the most important one is to grow our Sunday Supper Mission.
Join us this January during National #SundaySupper Month by taking the Sunday Supper Pledge!
Commit to sharing a home-cooked meal at least once a week and soon it becomes a way of life.
Take the pledge, and share your home-cooked meals with us on social media!
Family Foodie’s Favorite Bites of the Year
Our founder Isabel Laessig, best known as Family Foodie, loves spending time around the family table with her husband, four children and her son-in-law.
Isabel’s three top recipes of the year were:
- Pepperoni Pizza Dip: Back again for the 20th year in a row! This dip doesn’t miss a get-together at Isabel’s house. It has made every football game and tailgating party, and is now a favorite of many of her friends!
- Standing Rib Roast: What a show-stopper at the holiday table! Isabel’s family said this year’s holiday rib roast was the best they have ever tasted! No steak knives needed for this melt-in-your-mouth roast. Plus, it’s so easy to make using the free Roast Perfect app!
- Blueberry Sangria: Make every get-together a memorable one by serving this blueberry sangria! So easy and delicious that every guest who has tried it has asked for the recipe. This was Isabel’s favorite sip of the year!
