Alexia Foods And The Foodbuzz Blogger Festival
We spent this past weekend in San Francisco with a few friends from home…and a bunch of bloggers. It was the 3rd Annual Foodbuzz Blogger Festival, and we were very lucky to attend on behalf of Alexia Foods this year. We were one of the 22 bloggers who created and submitted a new flavor for the “Reinvent a Classic” Challenge. The Alexia Food’s Research and Development team our Herbes de Provence and Garlic as one of the four finalists, which is a huge honor. Now it’s up to our friends and family again to help us push our way to the top! Voting is now open on the Alexia Foods Facebook page. Head over and cast your ballot for the flavor that sounds the best! Voting will run through March 30, 2012. Vote now, vote tomorrow, vote every day!

Here We Come Foodbuzz!
In just a few hours, we’ll be flying high on a quickie flight from SoCal to NorCal. For the third year in a row, we find ourselves at the Foodbuzz Blogger Festival in San Francisco. It kicks off with the usual Welcome Reception that, this year, will be combined with a blogger awards ceremony and dinner. We’ve always enjoyed the Welcome Reception’s previous set-up of kiosks and tables from all-you-can-sample food and beverage vendors, so the dinner and ceremony combination will be an interesting change. We’ll poke around the Taste Pavilion on Saturday afternoon and pick up more eats and sips, then finish off the affair with Sunday’s farewell brunch. It’s always a fun weekend, and we’ve been lucky to meet great people each time. This year, one of the big sponsors of the event is Alexia Foods, and they want you to be as involved in the Foodbuzz weekend as we are, even if you won’t be there. Keep reading to find out how.Continue Reading »
