This past Friday many area food bloggers (aka food and drink nerds) got together to eat and drink far too much! It was a terrific showing with lots of new faces. It seems every week or so a new food blog pops up and the more the merrier!
I tried to take pictures, but I'd already had a few glasses of wine by the time I pulled by camera out, so the majority were blurry and instead of posting them here. The only decent shot I got is the one above of cookies from Taylor of Mac & Cheese Review. The middle row are her Moravian Molasses Cookies that she whipped up just for me after I drooled over them on her blog. The cookies on either side were studded with black and cayenne pepper, then half dipped in chocolate, yum! For more delicious photos, I'll refer you to Albert's Flickr Set of the event. There you can find pictures of some of the yummy dishes we all enjoyed as well as a series of pictures utilizing the Pick Your Nose cups I brought along for fun. I brought my Coconuut Toffee Almond Crunch Cookies as well as a new Diabetes friendly recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies that can be found on my new blog, The Sugar.
It was great catching up with some old buddies and really great to make some new friends. I especially enjoyed talking with Rick Nichols, eating meatballs made by my new BFF, Jess, seeing my first Yule Log thanks to Lauren, and trying to refrain from gorging on mini cherry rum cakes from Cat.
Overall, between all that wine and all those sweets, my blood sugar took a serious hit, but I'm already excited for the next potluck. Thanks to Messy & Picky for hosting at their house!
