Food Blog Forum Seminar – A Wonderful Experience!
I’d like to share with all of you my wonderful weekend in Orlando. No, amusement parks were not what made it wonderful….the folks at the Food Blog Forum were! I can’t think of a better way to spend my wedding anniversary….well, maybe I can…but this was warm, sunny and filled with happy memories and that works for me.
We started the weekend at a “meet and greet” at Whole Foods where we were served delicious food and wine, including a creme brulee station! I got the chance to meet some of my heroes in the food blogging world and make many new friends.
Saturday we all gathered at the Rosen College of Hospitality Management where Julie Deily of TheLittleKitchen.net (who along with Jaden Hair and Dawn Viola, organized and hosted the event) did the introductions. The energy was great from the start!
I was inspired time and time again, by the lovely and oh, so talented Jaden Hair of SteamyKitchen.com and her husband Scott, a fabulous motivational speaker.

A personal highlight was hearing Helene Dujardin of Tartlette explain her award winning techniques for food styling and photography.

Lastly, Dawn Viola of WickedGoodDinner.com charmed us and made us laugh while she gave tips on how to expand our readership.
I left the seminar (after winning a Le Creuset casserole!!) knowing that I am on the right path to fulfill my goal of sharing my dream with all of you.
Later that evening, we all indulged in more great food and drinks at McCormick and Schmick’s (the Florida Red Grouper with roasted plantains and black beans was my favorite!). They even closed their restaurant to entertain us!!!
Moving forward, I hope to make this blog even better and I’m more enthusiastic than ever to share my (but more importantly, your) Sunday supper stories!Update: If you would like to see how my blog has improved, please check it out! http://returntosundaysupper.com
