Creamy Bacon Salad Dressing

Share this Recipe!

Looking back, it really seems like no time has passed at all.  And yet it’s been two years. Sunday Supper is celebrating it’s 2nd Birthday this month. While I’ve been around since the start, I did not participate in the first couple, my first Sunday Supper was actually February 11, 2012 with these delicious Pink Champagne Cupcakes with Strawberry Champagne Frosting.

It was a Romance Dinner theme and those cupcakes have been popular on my blog ever since!

Over the past two years I have participated in so many themes, met so many amazing friends and bonded with Isabel from Family Foodie, founder of Sunday Supper  and she has become one of my closest, best, personal friends. Today’s theme is about memories. Our favorite memory from Sunday Supper’s past. This was so much harder to do than you think. When you work with one of your best friends, you forget which things are a result of the friendship, and which are a result of actual Sunday Supper.

I remember when we started sharing the links we share them now, I remember creating the facebook page, I remember moving to the forums, I remember the most hilarious Sunday Supper conversations every Sunday night at 7pm EST on twitter. But the thing is, there is one thing that stands out in my mind. It happened this year. I’m sure for many it will be their favorite memory.

The Food and Wine Conference sponsored by Sunday Supper.

It was truly amazing meeting so many fabulous Sunday Supper gals (and guys). The memories made that weekend still live in my heart and make me smile on a fairly regular basis. I remember seeing Isabel in person for the first time. Her face lit up as she picked me up at the airport in her hometown. I had never seen a more sincere, heart warming smile and I knew we were going to have a fabulous weekend. And we did.

The drive up to Orlando passed in a mere 10 minutes (not really it was 2 hour but I didn’t notice), we talked and talked and laughed and hung out with her awesome daughter and her best friend. I remember arriving at Rosen I was just completely overwhelmed by it’s size, beauty and the fact that it was finally here and happening.

Later when I finally had the chance to meet these wonderful Sunday Supper ladies in person, it was surreal. Standing in a hallway by the registration table, all these friendly faces kept appearing and I recognized them. Truly knew who they were from seeing their profile pictures on FB, twitter and in the forums! It was very, very cool. The friendships that were made that weekend as we learned how to grow our blogs, networked with other food bloggers and ate great food, socialized and listened to wonderful sessions, memories were made.

And by far, until the Summer of 2014 when I will once again be traveling to Orlando, Florida, this time with my son and daughter in tow, I can say with certainty that the Food and Wine Conference 2013 was my favorite Sunday Supper memory so far.

Also, I brought some Creamy Bacon Salad Dressing today.

Sunday Supper has meant so much to me,not only because it's helped my blog flourish, but more importantly, because I met amazing people like you, Nicole. My life seriously wouldn't be the same w/o #SS. I'm really aiming to make it to the conference this year because it would be the best experience of my life to meet y'all in real life. Fingers crossed! As for this dressing - YUM! Bacon, YES!
