Two Peas and Their Pod

New York City

New York City

Last week I went to New York City to attend a blogging event with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. The event was super hush-hush so I wasn’t exactly sure what was going to happen. We were given a few hints, but I couldn’t figure it out.

On the big day, we were all taken to Chef Alex Guarnaschelli’s restaurant, Butter, for brunch. Chef Alex visited with us and cooked up a fabulous meal. I thought meeting Chef Alex was exciting enough, but there is more:)  The big secret was finally revealed-Kim Cattrall (from Sex and the City) is the new spokesperson for ICBINB. Kim gave a little presentation and we viewed clips from her upcoming commercials. Fun times!

Here are a few photos from the event. Enjoy!

On the menu: Toast and Spreads, Biscuits, Grilled Shrimp with Tomatoes, Crustless Quiche with Goat Cheese and Scallions, and Butter Cookies. For Chef Alex’s recipes visit, ICBINB. The biscuits were my favorite:)

Don’t worry I have more NYC posts coming soon! I extended my stay so I could play in NYC with a few of my favorite friends. Stay tuned!

Disclosure-ICBINB sponsored the event/trip. Of course, my opinions are my own.

    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
