I have been on Allrecipes since 2007. I quickly found the Recipe Exchange and was completely hooked! In 2011, I noticed that Gderr, whom I had never met or talked to on the Buzz, posted a blog about a Southern Roundup in Panama City, FL. It was meant
to be since I live in Panama City!
Anticipation grew as I got to know the folks who were going to meet up here. I'll admit, I was a little nervous the day of, as I had never met someone in person from the internet! I was really hoping no one was a serial killer!!!!
Finally, we all met at a local Oyster Bar/Southern Restaurant and we all just hit it off completely! (Obviously, no one was a murderer, lol!) We all had a great time ordering and sharing new dishes with each other and talking about what we like to cook at home.
Eventually, we all traveled back to the condo that everyone was staying at (beer and bourbon in tow)! We shared family stories and realized how much we all have in common, even though we all come from different backgrounds.
I cannot wait for the Southern Roundup of 2012! These folks are the sweetest bunch of people you will ever meet! I feel like we are all part of a big ol' foodie family!!!
It's on like neckbone!
