This weekend I will be hanging out with about 100 other Food Bloggers at Camp Blogaway in the Big Bear mountains, above Los Angeles. I’m hoping to hone my blogging skills and meet like minded friends who relish the idea of talking about the fine details of cooking, entertaining and food science.
I really need some technical help, so I’ll be searching out anything and everything I can along these lines. I’ve been a little overwhelmed with all the jobs I’ve been doing since I started my food business in January. In March, I added the job of Western Regional Manager for La Cucina Italiana Magazine. I now have three different business cards in my bag to hand out – Fresh Food in a Flash (Blogger, cooking teacher and chef), Pampered Chef consultant (cooking equipment salesperson) and now the La Cucina Italiana gig. I’m finding out that I can successfully manage all of them by letting one flow into the other. It’s a lot of fun and keeping me very busy!
Yesterday I prepped the La Cucina Italiana Gift Basket you see here to give to our fearless leader, Patti Londre. She will be raffling this off among the volunteers who will be prepping a dish with Idaho Potatoes. Can’t wait to taste this! I’m also bringing boxes of magazines with me so that my fellow campers can experience this authentic Italian publication’s quality and salivate over the Italian themed recipes and gorgeous food photos.
