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.

Get the best of the best!

  7. 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!
