To top it off we found an amazing community of bloggers who share a passion of sharing ways to keep families connected and inspired with their recipes. The Food and Wine Conference brought together bloggers, small business owners, winemakers, chefs, public relations professionals, traditional media, news media, authors and brands. The event was created by the talented +Isabel Reis Laessig founder of Family Foodie and Sunday Supper.
We strive to create a better future for families, by partnering with brands and services that help families feel good, eat better and interact with each other. We want our mission to reach the homes of all families and inspire people across the world to spend time around the family table.

Amanda and I have been friends for close to 10 years now and it’s no secret she’s a total foodie! This was such a treat for us to attend together. One of the biggest things is that were were able to have a Mom’s Weekend away at the Conference, YEAP NO KIDS. Can you imagine how many finished conversations we were able to have! A big thank you to our husbands who were home with the kids for the weekend. Here’s a few photos that we took together. We attended several sessions that were filled with information and we have been slowly implementing some of our goals onto our website this summer. Thank you so much for continuing to read our site as we’ve grown, we love sharing ideas with our readers! A big thank you to the sponsors and speakers at the Food and Wine Conference!
Amanda’s Recipe Entrees
I’ve encouraged Amanda for awhile now to share some of her recipes on The Educators’ Spin On It. I used to teach our girls Cooking Class but I often joked that it should have been her doing the lessons. I was so excited to see that she entered a few recipes to the Contests at the Food and Wine Conference. I must admit… she did a pretty amazing job! Take a peek at her winning recipes in my heart! I’m looking forward to seeing future recipes that she’s planning to share on our site! Which one will you try first?
