ShopRite Blogger Get-Together

This is a long overdue post.  I spent November and December working nearly every day and now I'm enjoying a week-long staycation full of friends, family, coffee, and trashy daytime television.  Life is good.  I'm taking this opportunity to sort through my photos and share some fun food stories.

Back in mid-November I enjoyed a fun lunch with two of my fellow ShopRite bloggersEmily and Jessica.  I met these talented ladies who love to cook as much as I do at the NYC Food and Wine Festival back in October.  Since we all live in the Philadelphia area we decided to meet for a potluck lunch at Jessica's home in South Jersey.  We each made a Tyler Florence-inspired dish.  Emily made a bacon and apple panini, Jessica made an asparagus risotto (from Tyler's latest book, Family Table), and I made Tyler's Hunter's Minestrone

We had so much fun that I forgot to take a group photo, but cruise on over to Jessica's Blog and Emily's Blog to see what they're up to.  I'm loving the idea of blogger get-togethers and I hope to participate in more in the future!

I set up a Formspring account for questions from readers.  Want to know more about  me?  Have a cooking or baking question?  Click here to ask me anything!  


  1. Dear Keeley,

    You make me want to love cooking. For now, I'll start to like it. About to go shopping for Friday. And instead of buying bbq sauce... I'm actually going make balsamic chicken wings. I'm going to try and make you foodies proud. (But don't be surprised if there are some store bought appetizers mixed in...)

  2. Hey. I had a great time and I really enjoyed meeting you. Your home was so warm and inviting and i really appreciated the conversation. I left feeling so motivated and inspired. I've been researching all morning what should be organic and what we can save on. Already told the hubby the food budget is being cut in half.

    we are def gonna play michael jackson dance revolution tonight lol. Also what was on that playlist?

  3. Everything looks absolutely delicious and I have to agree on having more "blog meetups" in the new year! I had such a great time at your lovely home (thank you for having us!) and I look forward to more meetings again in the future!!

  5. We had so much fun!! I can't wait to see you girls again! I'm so glad I met some awesome people through Shop Rite, who would of thought!
