My first big event of the year was the inaugural #VanillaWeek. I gathered 12 bloggers to celebrate our live of vanilla. We created some amazing recipes like Vanilla Macarons, Vanilla Bean Ladyfingers, and Vanilla Bean White Hot Chocolate.
The first half of the year kept me busy by being on the Food & Wine Conference planning committee. The Food & Wine Conference at the Rosen Shingle Creek Resort & Spa in July was spectacular. A great group of bloggers attended and I cannot wait for Food & Wine Conference 2016!
August was filled with fun days at the splashpad with #ToddlerLnC and a family beach vacation. ToddlerLnC had an amazing time at the beach and loved playing in the sand and water. I look forward to our yearly beach vacation and love watching her experience new things.
Late September was #pumpkinweek with 19 bloggers. I loved all the festive pumpkin recipes, especially my Pumpkin Butter, Pumpkin Pancakes with Bourbon Maple Syrup, and Pumpkin Almond Croissants. During the Fall, I also had a chance to attend The Americas Cake and Sugarcraft Fair, a Honey Nut Cheerios Living Billboard event and The Taste of Dr. Phillips.
Until next time,
LOVE & CONFECTIONS!
