TECHmunch Tampa 2012 – Conference Photos & Recap

The TECHmunch food blogger conference rolled into in Tampa, FL last month. This was my first time attending a TECHmunch event and I was excited to see this conference taking place in a nearby city. What made this conference different was that I was asked to speak at one of the segments. Jeff Houck, Food writer for the Tampa Tribune, reached out to me back in February and asked if I would be interested in speaking. After an excited and nervous initial reaction, I was honored to be asked and accepted. Later I found out I was participating on a panel, speaking on food trends and social media. Sure, I can chime in and talk in a group setting, a more ideal situation than speaking solo with a power point.   (click image to enlarge) The conference weekend started on a Friday evening with a opening reception at the Tampa Museum of Art. The event had tasty bites and desserts, along with some potent mixed drinks. A fun time for conversations, introductions and re-connecting with …

A success: Central Florida Food Blogger Bake Sale – Photos & Recap

Last week, I was announcing a bake sale that I was participating in with fellow food bloggers. The Central Florida Food Blogger Bake Sale was the fundraising event to donate proceeds to the Share Our Strength organization – an organization trying to end childhood hunger in the U.S. The bake sale was a success and we were able to raise $1400 within a few hours last Saturday. Our team of local food bloggers made a variety of sweet treats that easily filled 6 large tables. My contribution was the Baked Red Velvet Donut with Candied Bacon and they were a hit, more so than the regular baked red velvet donuts I made as well. I guess people really do love bacon. Check out the photos from the bake sale, it was a great collaborative effort and we all had a good time.   (click image to enlarge) The bake sale was just around the corner from the weekly Winter Park Farmers Market, so we were definitely trying to pull the crowd from there…   (click …

Food Blog Forum Orlando at Disney World – Conference Recap

A little over a week ago, food bloggers and speakers from around the country gathered for the Food Blog Forum Orlando 2012, hosted at the Walt Disney World Resort. This was my second year to attend this conference. From last year going in and not knowing anyone in the food blogging community, to this year reuniting with familiar faces and making some new friends. The food blog community is a very supportive bunch, passionate about their craft, eager to help and learn from one another. The conference had the same affect as last year, rejuvenating myself with blogging, learning techniques, and networking with great people. We were all over Disney that weekend, staying at the Polynesian Resort, attending an opening reception at the Grand Floridian Resort, the conference and evening dessert reception both at Epcot. I took many photos during the conference weekend and the following are the results. Keeping my words to a minimum (sort of), I will let the photos tell the story. *Make sure to click all horizontal photos to see larger …
