Stir It 28 Recap - Good food for a good cause


I'm glad to say that Stir It 28 went great. There looked to have been great turn out for a good cause. I'm proud to say that I was a part of it. So rather than writing endlessly about it. I'll just share with you some photos from the event. I'm so glad to have been able to put a faces to some of the blogs that I've been following as well as meeting new ones along the way. A special thanks to Chrystal of Duo Dishes for organizing the event and to Greg of Sippity Sup for hosting it as his lovely home -- which upon arriving I immediately fell in love with his house, more so the fabulous kitchen!!

I was one of several bloggers that cooked up some delicious eats. It was a pleasure meeting you all as well as other bloggers and non-bloggers who came to support the event. There were cocktails and some raffles prizes given away. My little ticket was almost called. It was off by one number. Darn! hehehe...

For my part, I made two appetizers. The first was Crab Salad Tostadita, which was basically some crab salad with homemade paprika tortilla chips. (There I go again with those darn tortillas!! Ha!!) The second was Cream Cheese and Mushroom Tartlettes. Both were well received and ran out fairly quick! I'll be posting the recipe to those in the next two days. It's definitely something I'll be keeping for gatherings and parties. We were all assigned shifts to take turns serving.  By the end of it all, I was really stuffed. It was a happy stuffed. Being able to try other bloggers creations is always fun and great. Seeing all our different cooking and baking styles. I did fairly good in staying away from the chocolate and meat. It was all too tempting, I tell ya! I had my point and shoot with me. I was planning for bring my dslr, but I already had a lot of stuff in my hands. Anyway...here's some of pics. Enjoy!

What an awesome event - worthy cause, great company, excellent food, beautiful home and the most amazing organizer and host (Chrystal and Greg)! Love the photographs - especially the last, as I get to eyeball Greg's gorgeous fish plate collection again. Many thanks for sharing!
