Toasted Marshmallow Squares & The Big Summer Potluck

Timing is everything, and I just happened to be in the right place at the right time to score myself  a ticket to the third annual Big Summer Potluck. BSP3 is the kind of foodie event that is a little more grounded from the usual food events and you aren’t going to find forums on how to code your site with the best SEO over, or how to snap a photo to be approved on a food site every time. Instead there were several small discussions on things of a more personal nature. How to make it all work for yourself, how exactly does a recipe become your own. The food was amazing (and I loved that lots of people got to bring dishes of their own), the location was beautiful, lush and rustic, and the hosts were amazingly kind. It was really nice to see all of the food bloggers I have spoken too, and some I hadn’t met yet and to get to know them. Everyone was friendly and I feel a lot of people let their guard down for the day and took home as much inspiration as they could.

I also happened to be in the right place at the right time to rip the only dress I had with me for the day, you know, the one I was wearing, right across my panty line and down my leg and possibly flash everyone. Cuz, that’s how I roll. (You know those moments when you are super happy you chose proper lady undergarments, that was one of them). Luckily, someone had a spare safety-pin and I secured it and tried not to worry too terribly much about it for the rest of the day.

If the timing is right next year, I am not sure I would even pack a camera. I think I would focus on being a little more extroverted and trying to make it a point to speak to everyone at least once. The pictures are nice, but really, it’s the people who make this event.
