Holiday Bakeoff

Remember the I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter holiday bakeoff? On November 12, I had the opportunity to go to the ICBINB test kitchen for a demo and the bakeoff. Even though I didn’t win the bakeoff (Congrats to Sara for winning!), I had a blast meeting some new bloggers and learning about ICBINB.

Check out the test kitchens!

Chef Normajean Longfield did a demo and answered questions for us.

These are the triple chocolate cookies that Normajean made during her demo.

This is the delicious lunch that I had while in the test kitchens. All of these recipes use ICBINB and are available on their website.

These are some of the desserts that were in the holiday bakeoff. Everything was delicious!

I snapped this picture of the George Washington bridge while we were heading back into New York City. Thanks again to I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter for this amazing opportunity!

    You did a great job! This was a thing very well done . We lived in Europe for a couple of years and took many week long trips all around the continent. We also found that one small bag(we used duffels) were the way to go. Never lost luggage, never missed a connecting flight, never had to lug heavy bags all over the place. We found that we could manage very well with less than was originally thought. In fact, I discovered that i really loved having less alltogether! (We lived in Limburg and Moravia; traveled to Poland, Croatia, Greece, Italy, France, England, and Belgium. Brugge is my favorite! Although I must say, I loved every speck of Italy, too!)

    You did great! I also love Rick Steves’ packing cubes for a long trip. I fit everything I needed for 2 weeks in Europe in February in one cube, freeing up half my suitcase. And I’m a size 14-16 so it wasn’t just x-s size. Great job!

      Thanks! It was definitely worth the effort to not be lugging around a huge suitcase while we were in Europe.
