I mentioned last week that I was in New York for the SUPERVALU Essential Foods for Every Season Event. I had an incredible time meeting with the SUPERVALU team, tasting Essential Everyday products (the new “generic” brand for SUPERVALU stores such as my local Farm Fresh) and hanging out with other bloggers from across the United States.
While in New York, we headed to “Home Cooking New York” for dinner. This was my first experience at a Home Cooking party. To be honest, I was a bit apprehensive. First, I am only a mediocre cook. Second, I was cooking in front of/with a group of mostly strangers. It turned out to be a wonderful experience! Stepping out of my comfort zone is a good thing!!! It was a great way to get to know the other members of the group and to learn a few cooking tips. For instance, I have been using my knife wrong for years!!!
I have a ton of recipes to share with you over the coming days. First up was our beverage, Mock Mojitos. This yummy drink can be substituted with alcohol if you prefer.
Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
