Keren, Yashar, and I having a great time!
There were luscious libations served along tasty appetizers and cheeses! I shook up a Tuscan Rosemary Lemon Drop made with Purity Vodka topped with a Honey Lemon Foam, followed by my southern vacation inspired Charleston 75, and then an always fun Tropical Tiki Time Sangria made with Columbia Winery’s Pinot Gris. And of course there were lots of apps to go with all those sips from Sips & Apps including my D’lish Peppadew Peppers and Lamb Sliders on Homemade Rosemary Buns.

Corky Luster of Ballard Bee Honey came by and gave a “bee tour” of our hive that we have in our back urban garden. He even brought a couple of the special protective bee hats for some of the bloggers to wear and get an up-close look of the bees and honeycombs!
Risk taking foodies getting close to my hive!
Lorna Yee talked about her new book, The Newlywed Kitchen, which shares a story about my husband, John and I. She even dished out two great desserts straight from her book, Candybar Cupcakes and Triple Chocolate Fudge Brownies – yum!

One of the attendees, Paula Thomas took some fabulous photos and wrote a fantastic blog post, which you can find here.
Thank you to Keren Brown, Corky Luster, and to all the Seattle food bloggers that came out for this event! It was definitely a d’lish time!
