Why I attended Build Your Blog Conference

This past weekend I had the great pleasure of attending Build Your Blog Conference for the third year in a row, right here in Salt Lake City.  Presented by The Blogger Network and Six Sisters Stuff, this conference is jam packed with classes to help build your blog to new heights and it just keeps getting better. Two years ago I attended the first BYBC. It was my first blog conference EVER and I had no clue what to expect, what to do or what to wear. Heavens, I was at a loss. But now two years later, a lot of those worries have dissipated and I went charging into the conference eager to absorb as much as I could and meet other bloggers with in the food niche. I was NOT let down!

This past weekend, I attended the Build Your Blog Conference right here in Salt Lake City. It was 2 full days of blog education, classes, inspiring speakers and lots of bloggers. I reconnected with old friends and made new ones. I will be posting about my experience this week since I’m so tired right now and my brain is on overload with all the information I soaked in. So if you’ve been wondering why no recipes this past weekend, that’s why. But, I will not leaving you hanging. As I do some meal planning for the upcoming week, I’m looking for some family pleasing meals and I’m sure you are too. I’m hoping this Chicken Sausage Cabbage Rolls will be one you’ll want to try.

Francois et Mimi Hammock Two-Tier Fruit Bowl Review

I love fruit. And we eat a lot of it. Every two weeks or so we order from the Utah Community Food Co-op and always get an abundance of fruits and veggies. They give us a lot and our fruit basket was always overflowing. Not with the Francois et Mimi Hammock Two-Tier Fruit Bowl that I recently had the opportunity to review. It holds all my fruit without any getting squished or bruised.

Purex Powershot Detergent. Use less and get the same clean results. Pre-measured for you. www.lorisculinarycreations.com

How many hours do you spend doing laundry? For me, it’s not a whole heck of a lot since it’s just hubby and I in the house. However, we added three dogs last fall and with that came more laundry. Why? Because dogs need to go out and most of the time they bring the outside in, especially if it’s rainy or snowy. Because of that, we keep lots of towels by the patio door to wipe them down and dry them off. What that leaves me is a mountain of smelly dirty dog towels that I seem to wash over and over.  What gets them smelling fresh again? Purex® PowerShot Detergent.

H2wOw Water Enhancer Review and Giveaway #Hydrate

H2wOw Review and Giveaway #Hydrate. www.lorisculinarycreations.com

For those of you reading this blog for awhile, you know how much I love my Soda Stream machine and the fact I have a bottle with me at all times. Most of the time it’s just plain ole water but every once in awhile, I like some flavor too. Unfortunately most of the flavorings out there for water are too sweet or taste too thick. No Bueno. When the opportunity came along to review this water enhancer from H2Wow, I was excited to give a kick to my daily bubble water.

Mom’s Hamburger Steak & Gravy

Mom's Hamburger Steak was one of my favorites growing up. Easy and wallet-friendly too. www.lorisculinarycreations.comIt’s February 12th and I was outside today, in the sun, with no jacket in Utah! It feels so much like spring right now and the pups are enjoying playing outside. I’m loving it too and it’s so easy to start thinking ahead of gardening, flowers and picnics. But, we’ll have a hard reminder of winter next week so I’ll enjoy it as I can. When it gets cold, I want that yummy comfort food and this recipe for hamburger steak is one my mom used to make us kids. It’s comfort food at it’s finest and will please adults and kids alike.
