Seattle – BlogHer Food 2012

Not quite sure if I should call this post BlogHer Food 2012 or Add Cellulite to my thighs 2012 Tour. I mean seriously, all we did was eat and eat and eat…and these girls made me do roommates.

From left to right we have, Darla from Bakingdom, Kristan from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen, Shelly from Cookies and Cups and me.

We had a blast. Truly love those girls.

It always amazes me how different a city can look in the daytime compared to the night.

I took these photos from one of the many parties we attended. The day photos, I took at the Dole and Johnsonville parties hosted by Susan at Doughmesstic and Paula from Bell’alimento. And the nighttime photos I took during the Cameron Hughes Wine party hosted by the same great ladies. I sadly didn’t take any photos of the Zip List party hosted by Maria and Lori. I had been up for 24 hours at that point and thought I was dying.

Speaking of the Dole party, the fabulous Chef Ben Ford cooked for us. It was pretty awesome.

Doesn’t he look like his Dad, Harrison Ford?

And based on some Facebook recommendations, we ate at the Pink Door.
I had the best chicken panini there. The restaurant was so cozy.

Anytime you go to Seattle, Pikes Market is a must.

If you want to be in Mac and Cheese heaven, Beecher’s is the place to go. Ohhhhh my, it was divine.

Oh and when 4 girls are hungry, the only thing to do is to go to Top Pot Doughnuts and get a dozen doughnuts. We gave it the ol collage try, but we only seemed to put a dent in them.

We ate cupcakes like it was nobodies business….We stopped at Yellow Leaf Cupcakes and gorged.

We also had a little Pj-Cupcake party in our room one night. In attendance was Amanda from Kevin and Amanda (she tortured us with all the cupcakes) Lori from Recipe Girl and Recipe Boy, Jenny from Picky Palate, Maria and family from Two Peasย , Shaina from Food for my Familyย , Tara from Unsophisticookย and of course my sweet roommates.

So there you have it. I think I gained 9 pounds.
