Here’s the down low: we pop a bag of popcorn. I used store brand “natural style” popcorn (For you east-coasters, the specific brand was Giant/Martins). Next we melt a 12 oz bag of white chocolate candy melts. I used Ghirardelli, but only because that’s all that was available at my grocery store, and toss in a cup of candy corn. I used the “autumn mix” variety with the little pumpkins for variety, but use whatever you prefer. Just mix ’em all up and you’ve got yourself the easiest snack at the party!

The Big Harvest Potluck

I spent last weekend in Bucks County, PA at The Big Harvest Potluck. It was a wonderful weekend full of food, learning, friendships, and so much more.

The Big Potluck: A Weekend of Food, Fun, and Friendship

I went into the conference riddled with anxiety and fear. I’ve always been a fierce introvert- one of the few ways I stray from the typical INFJ. I knew going in that I would be the youngest by a few years. What would everyone else think? Would they think I was too young to be blogging, that baking out of a dorm room was crazy? Or maybe they’d be amazed. Who would know?

From the moment I walked into the Sands Hotel and Resort in Bethlehem, PA, I felt welcomed. Dining on stone-fired pizza under the stars and discussing food, the food industry, and getting to know other bloggers was a wonderful start to the weekend.

The Big Potluck: A Weekend of Food, Fun, and Friendship

Sadly, I missed the morning sessions due to illness. But what I did hear the next day left me thinking hard about my own voice and story.  Listening to Christopher Hirsheimer and Mellssa Hamilton of The Canal House talk about finding your own story in photography reminded me of my growing passion, and inspired me to find my own style. Cheryl Sternman-Rule’s writing workshop pushed me to improve my writing, to find my voice, and to write in new and different ways.

This wasn’t your typical conference- in fact, it was more like a retreat. I went in knowing no one, and left with wonderful new friends and acquaintances. Thank you to all of the sponsors- Sabra Hummus, Gourmet Garden, Burpee Seeds, Kitchen Aid, OXO, Analon Cookware, Kerrygold, and Terra Chips. Thank you to the wonderful organizers, Maggy, Erika, and Pam, and everyone who helped behind the scenes.

I left the event relaxed, encouraged, and ready for more- I can’t wait to return to next years event.
