Taking Questions!

Events / Giveaways / Partnerships

Questions.  Sometimes they pop up out of nowhere (“Where can I get a really delicious red velvet cupcake at 12:37am?”).  Other times I have questions when watching TV – “Does Samantha Brown ever get lonely, even though her job sounds really awesome?” or on the subway (“Should I get an e-reader?”  The answer is yes, I got one on Black Friday).  Satisfying when they are answered, frustrating when not – we’ve all had questions from time to time.

How many cupcakes can I cram into my purse before someone takes notice?

I thought I’d try something new on the blog, and open it up for questions.  They could be silly or serious, about eating or blogging or my favorite cuisine, or taking photos.  Ask away, and I will answer them in an upcoming post(s).  If they are too personal, I won’t (consider yourself warned, ha!). Reeeeeeeeeeeady………….GO!

What questions do you have for me?

First, watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade wouldn’t be complete without some piping hot cinnamon rolls – heavy on the cream cheese frosting, please!!

Then, I’ll be making one of my faaavorite sides – is this your favorite side as well?

Green & Black’s Chocolate Event AND a Chocolate GIVEAWAY!

Events / Giveaways / Partnerships

Last week I attended a delicious chocolate event, hosted by none other than Green & Black’s!  After the awesome event Green & Black’s put together last year, I knew I was in for a scrumptious treat.  This year was a small, intimate affair – about 10 bloggers, tops.  In addition to samples of the 10+ luscious chocolate varieties (first photo), we were treated to a cheese, fruit and prosciutto collection (mmmmmm):
