Sugar Free Sunday and #fbzfest

Welcome to one of the sweetest weekly virtual potluck get-together ever! Yes indeed β€” it is Sugar Free Sunday! We host it every Sunday to exchange incredible sugar free recipes. Inspiration to start the week right? You bet!

Incase you hadn’t heard, FoodBuzz’s third annual food blogger festival(#fbzfest on twitter) is going on over this weekend in San Francisco. I got to attend the tasting pavillion this afternoon, thanks to Farihah, and, even though I couldn’t stay for more than half an hour (my back gave out :(), I remembered BlogHer Food ’11 with the fondest of memories. The rush and excitement of making new friends, meeting people you follow and have never met, all came back to me!

I ran into the gracious Sabrina Modelle of thetomatotart.com. I love her style and flair, and, have, ever since I saw her gorgeous red dress at BlogHer Food. I have no pictures since I forgot to take my camera! I also bumped into Irvin of eatthelove.com. I was trying to connect up with Farihah when I saw him talking to Anita from dessertfirstgirl.com and just barged into their conversation. Hey! What can I say? I was excited to see them! πŸ˜€

Food festivals are so much fun. I’m now waiting for BlogHer Food ’12 which is in June next year a good eight months away! Yeah, I know… reality check anyone? πŸ˜›

On a rather fun note, our blogger buddy, the bubbly, adorable Farihah of Spice’s bite is a finalist in Alexia Foods “Re-invent a Classic”! Yipiiee! Please do vote for her entry “Bruschetta Waffle Fries”!

With that, Sugar Free Sunday is now open for all your wonderful recipes!

      that looks yum Heather! πŸ™‚ I’m not a big fan (to put it mildly :P) of beets but I know how nutritious they are! Camouflaged in your drink would be a pretty awesome way for me to get my beet fix! πŸ™‚ Thanks for bringing this lovely juice to the party!

    Hi! I shared my Ginger Cake recipe, a favourite treat on Bonfire Night in the UK! I managed to make a SCD legal version of the very very sugary “Parkin” my grandma used to make which actually has the same texture and taste!

    • Sonia says:

      Oooh yummm… I love ginger! As a kid I would have pieces of raw ginger in lemon juice (pickled ginger)… in a cake would be even more fun! and getting the same texture… kudos to you! πŸ™‚
