Recap of the Last Couple Months

With so much happening in the last few months, I decided that a recap was in order. First, Memorial Day is coming up this weekend and here are some ideas for things to do.

The big news is that I was named “Doer of the Week” by Martha Stewart.com.

On April 17th, I organized the Seattle Food Blogger Bakesale.  We made 641 dollars to benefit ” Share our Strength”.

That same day, I organized a Seattle Food Blogger Event with Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman. Photo below by Valentina Vitols.

Then I went on my first vacation away from my little baby/toddler.  I presented  two sessions at IACP on the topic of Creating Community, Both Online and In Person .

The International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) is a worldwide forum for the development and exchange of information, knowledge, and inspiration within the professional food and beverage community. With nearly 3,000 members from more than 32 countries, this organization of creative and talented professionals is engaged in and committed to excellence in the food industry.
The conference was held in Portland. The conference was well -organized and informative with endless networking opportunities. I highly recommend you check it out next year and consider joining IACP.
I recently organized a Seattle Food Blogger Event with Mireille Guillano, author of the ” French Women Don’t Get Fat” cookbook. Here is the post

My last event was a Foodportunity Expression Workshop with Dianne Jacob, author of  “Will Write For Food”. The event was held at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel and sponsored by The Greek Gods Yogurt and Viv Agave (photos coming soon).
Sur La Table also showcased their new book “Eating Local” at the event.
Upcoming Events:
I will be a mentor at the Crave Symposium, an all day think-tank extravaganza. Details here. I am honored to be mentioned with such an eclectic group of savvy business women.
Save the date for the next Foodportunity Networking event coming up on August 2nd. What’s a Foodportunity? Check out this video of the last event.

  1. On Sunday, I was raving to a group of friends about the Foodportunity Expressions workshop I’d attended the day before. One of my wine-sipping buddies commented that it sounded like the event must have been really well-organized, and that made me realize just how much effort you must have put into it. The day flew by flawlessly, with great food, interesting people, and much learning to be had. That doesn’t occur on its own, and I just want to send you a HUGE THANK YOU for putting it all together.

    I’m going to be posting raves and a few photos to my blog in the next couple of days.


  2. Michael and Panda, glad to have you in my life!

    Cindy, that is so sweet, so looking forward to seeing you more

    Janna and Julie, two strong business women

    Very honored to know all of you personally!
