Recap: Eat, Write, Retreat Conference

I want to start this post off with a great big thank you to Canadian Beef for sponsoring three lucky Canadians to attend the Eat, Write,Retreat conference in Washington, DC! I can’t even explain how excited I was to have been chosen to take part in this great food conference.

I would also like to Thank Casey, Robyn, all the pros and the volunteers for such a great conference. Everyone did a great job organizing and teaching!

The conference was a great food experience which started off with a Cinco de Mayo Fiesta Welcome dinner and ............. Square dancing as an ice breaker! It differently was something different but a lot of fun.

Throughout the conference I meet some fantastic bloggers and pros, really enjoying the time to network with everything at Eat, Write, Retreat.

Monica Bhide's session about food writing was not what I was expecting but enjoyed it immensely. I have been thinking about it a lot since the conference. Monica asked us why we blog and what one word describes our blog, and what we want to accomplish with our blogs. My word I feel would be "Simplicity". I am hoping to help mother's and families get tasty, easy meals on the table quickly.

The OXO Kitchen Challenge was a great success and it looked like everyone had a great time making fun and tasty creations with OXO tools, mushrooms, Jarlsberg cheese and watermelons! My team was made up of a great group of ladies, Beth and Betty Anne and Kathy!

We did get spoiled with great products from all the wonderful sponsors! I am super excited to start using all the OXO products and also my new Calphalon frying pan and Panini grill! (I won the Panini grill through the raffles- watch for posts to come).  

I am already thinking about next year’s conference and how I hope to make a family trip out of it as there are tons of things my family could do while I am participating in the conference.
