Weekend Roundup| Blackout Dinner Party

What a weekend! I am still in recovery mode as I come off the euphoric high that was this past Saturday’s Blackout networking social dinner. I planned this (black attire themed) social dinner to celebrate the new year and bring my local celiac community together over mimosa’s, positive conversation, and lots of A+mazing gluten free food. The blackout is part of my “Gluten Free Meet & Mingle” series. I could go on and on but I’ll let the photos and the quote below (said by the husband of a very special friend) speak for themselves. It is truly why I do what I do. Oh and post blackout has inspired another e-cookbook idea. #staytuned

I’ll admit that before we came I was skeptical about this gluten free dinner. I must say I am very impressed at how great the food was

P.S: I am shooting myself because I made a “DIY Mimosa Bar” that I failed to take a picture of. Three words for the mimosa bar; A.Maz.Ing.
