• After the Bake-Off

    April 12, 2010

    Once the Pillsbury Bake-Off® ended, it was time for lunch. I sampled so many of the recipes at the Bake-Off, eating a full meal was just not appetizing to me. But, because I mostly indulged in desserts, I figured having some “real food” would probably do me some good.


    I checked out the spread at the lunch buffet, but I just wasn’t in the mood to eat. 😕


    But, the dessert display eventually changed my mind! 😉

    I ended up eating a small bowl of Roasted Butternut Squash & Apple Soup and a tiny chocolate mousse pastry. Obviously, it was a Lunch of Champions! 😉



    After lunch, the blogger crew headed outside to enjoy the sunshine.




    It felt GREAT to be outside! 😎


    I love hanging out with food bloggers! :mrgreen:


    I enjoyed a fruity glass of white sangria while sitting by the pool.


    How adorable is this photo!?! Yay for Eggland’s Best and cute babies! :mrgreen:


    Awards recap coming next!

    Hahaha I love how it was the dessert spread that motivated you to eat real food for lunch, even after those samples. I <3 your sweet tooth because mine is just as craaaaazy.

    Agreed! I have a major sweet tooth- looks like a delish lunch to me!

    You better tell us you slid down that slide!! 😛 What a lovely looking chocolate dessert – it’s always impressive to me when desserts made in large quantities actually taste good! I’ve had so many disappointing buffet desserts… but I guess Pillsbury knows what it’s doing! 😉

    Oh goodness- that dessert display would have sealed the deal with me! Babies and organic eggs totally make the cutest scene!

    wow – that mousse cake looks delicious!


    Diana April 13, 2010 at 2:05 am

    That soup and mousse look really yummy :) And that place looks beautiful!

    That hotel is SO gorgeous!! My gosh, what I’d do to go to a place like that – especially with the amount og amazing desserts that seem to be floating about….

    The best part of the post is the beautiful poolside pictures:) Makes me want to hop on the next plane to FL! I can’t wait for the awards ceremony post – I wanna know the category winners! Wish you could tell us who the grand prize champion is too, but oh well…


    Jessica @ How Sweet It Is April 13, 2010 at 6:34 am

    Everything looks so delicious, I’d want it all!!

    Sitting poolside after eating chocolate mousse sounds like my idea of heaven.


    Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) April 13, 2010 at 7:04 am

    Your lunch looks fab!! That’s one of my very favorite kinds of soups. 😀


    Kelly April 13, 2010 at 7:12 am

    So jealous of the pool, it looks gorgeous!


    Jill@quarterlifewellness April 13, 2010 at 7:38 am

    White sangria poolside?! Life is good for Tina :-)


    Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman April 13, 2010 at 7:43 am

    I’m with you: Sometimes the best meals revolve around dessert. And that one looks delicious!


    Jessica April 13, 2010 at 8:13 am

    I’d probably have hit the dessert too if I didn’t have a lot of space for food. When we’re somewhere that dessert is being served, or a great dessert menu is on the table, i make sure I save room!


    Ally @ Sweet & Savory April 13, 2010 at 8:26 am

    That pacifier in the cute babie’s mouth must be on every store shelf, b/c we have the same one!

    Looks like you had a fun time!
