My Experience Baking with Betty!

Pin It
Many of you know I took a trip to Minnesota this week to attend an event called Bake with Betty. General Mills invited 30 bloggers to attend and miraculously, I ended up with an invitation in my inbox! Let's suffice it to say I was shocked and thrilled to go. The purpose of the trip was to share many new recipes and products with us.

The highlight of the trip was the day we spent in the Betty Crocker test kitchens! We were divided into groups and each group rotated through four stations where we baked brownies, cookies, delectable breakfasts and then got to learn some new ideas to include our kids in the kitchen. We were able to turn traditional Betty Crocker items, like sugar cookie mix, into new and innovative desserts which were so delicious!

all nice and clean before we invaded them!}
Everyone in the test kitchens was amazing! They were so kind to share their knowledge with us! I loved being able to put our own spin on desserts- and who wouldn't when you have a fully-stocked kitchen?!

I am looking forward to re-creating many of the recipes here at home and of course will share them all with everyone. I came home with so many great ideas for recipes, I can't wait to try them out!

In the mean time, here are a few pictures of the event! I met so many wonderful bloggers, three whom I traveled with from Utah! Go check out their blogs: Laura from Real Mom Kitchen, Deborah from Taste and Tell, and Jamie from Jamie Cooks it Up! These ladies are fabulous and I learned so much from them.

A huge thanks to General Mills for inviting me and covering all the costs for the trip! I enjoyed and appreciated every minute of it!
