Recipe Swap Thursday #12

Welcome to Prairie Story Recipe Swap Thursday! As we head into the holiday season full throttle, I'm sure you have many recipes that have been in your family for generations. These recipes hold history, tradition, and love and I so enjoy that you may share some of them here!

Recipe Swap Thursday's most popular recipe last week was Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak @ Christina's Taste Test Project. Mmmm... be sure to visit her blog and all the other recipes!

This week I've posted a new recipe - my Great Grandma Sophie Pitura's Apple Sauce Cake. I find this dense, spice cake stays yummy for days and is perfect for coffee breaks.

How to swap:
1) Link directly to your recipe. Scroll down and click on the "Add your Link" button. You will be prompted to enter the URL (link directly to your post), Name of your recipe, and Email (not visible), and then select a Thumbnail to upload.

Thank you to all recipe swappers, blog hoppers, my loyal readers, Twitter and Facebook followers, fellow foodies, family and friends for your support. I'm so happy to be able to share my Prairie Story, and appreciate that you take a precious moment or two out of your busy day to visit my blog!

    I quickly scanned over your blog...I will have to come back and read over it more as I really enjoyed it. I am guessing that you are Ukainian? I am full-blooded Ukrainian...all eight of my great-grandparents came here to ND from Ukraine. :) Hope you can stop by and say hi!!!
