17 Favorite Family Reunion Recipes

One of our summertime favorites is the annual family reunion. It is so precious for us to be able to gather as an extended family that well before the actual date of the reunion, we get excited about seeing each other and take to social media to chatter back and forth about the approaching date, who's coming, who we will miss seeing, where we are meeting, when everyone will arrive,...all the details. Most of all, though, we talk about the food. Some of the most enduring memories of our lives are connected to reunion food. It's a wonderful feast every year and here are some of our favorite family reunion recipes. Maybe one of them will become a family favorite at your next reunion. Happy Summer!

Peaches and Cream Pie

I ran across this recipe in one of my old, but newly acquired, cookbooks. This 60-year-old dessert recipe had ingredients that we all love, but something about it seemed...well, sort of odd...so I had to taste and see how this recipe made it to cookbook notoriety. 
When served warm, as directed, this is a delicious pie, and a pretty pie as well. I did not enjoy it as much cold, but you might. It is really super easy to make and takes little time...well worth it.

Creamy Smoked Sausage Tortellini

Here's another one-skillet supper that comes together quickly and easily. It's creamy-delicious, and became an instant hit at our house. Tortellini is one of those great pastas that can be prepared many ways as evidenced in this round-up of 13 Easy & Delicious Tortellini Recipes. I purchase my tortellini at the local grocer; it comes fresh or frozen, so my dinner prep time is greatly reduced.
