Spice up YOUR life!

Woohoo it's Friday--Friday gotta get down on Friday!
...yikes, my inner Rebecca Black just came out, sorry you had to witness that...

I am currently in Maryland at FitBloggin and it is awesome. I have already met SO many people and it's only been a few hours. This morning I covered the Reebok Crossfit event.
I had my Nikon, my cell and my camera all in two hands, going at the same time.
That post will be up tomorrow or Sunday so stay tuned for that, video included.

Yesterday I was one of the lucky bloggers who was able to attend the McCormick kitchens and  today you are one of the lucky readers that gets to see the pictures!


 We started with lunch, which was perfect because we all came hungry. Traveling can do that to ya.
Everything was healthy, colorful and most importantly...flavorful

 Look at all of the beauty on my plate! 
How could you not want to eat healthy?

While we were eating they discussed what McCormick is all about

Chef Michael taught us about roasting vegetables, and flavoring our food. How to use juicers for making soup stock and taught us how little olive oil is actually necessary for cooking vegetables.

We spent some time in the kitchens learning how to make some of the dishes we had at lunch.
Have you ever thought of coating your chicken with sweet potato chips, then baking it?
Me either

This hangs in their kitchens and it was one of my favorite parts of the day...besides the eating, of course.

That right there. Is THE BEST cinnamon. No more red top for me, only gourmet.
Seriously, go try'll never go back!

Thank you McCormick for a fantastic day!
