Seattle Trip to Allrecipes

As an brand ambassador for I had the amazing opportunity to visit AllRecipes in Seattle, Washington June 26th-28th.
Thursday evening began with a tour of their spaces which was in a modern building on Pine Street in the heart of downtown Seattle. Their spaces span two floors of the building. The smiles on the AllRecipes teams faces stood out to me as they were all happy to be there. Touring the spaces the fun they have is very evident.
I also had the opportunity to meet many of the ladies that I have known through the recipe buzz for several years. It was a reunion of sorts.
Friday entailed participation in a focus group, a presentation showing an in depth look at AllRecipes and their statistics and our role with the company, social media information, and a video class with tips on filming and photography. Friday night ended with a rad party for the 15th Anniversary Celebration.
Here are the photos from the trip:

About Me
I am a Southern California wife and mother of one. I am a simple person that enjoys home decor, baking, and spending time with my family. You can also find me on YouTube - House of Aqua:
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making a variety of ice cream, cookies, cakes, and candies. In recent years I have branched out by making new dinner recipes and found that I enjoy the challenge.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a daughter that loves to help me bake. We spend Christmas Eve in the kitchen making special cookies for Santa together.
My cooking triumphs
I consider tempering chocolate and making caramels a triumph. You either get it right or your wrong!
My cooking tragedies
I failed several times at trying to make fondant centers for truffles. I decided to put my candymaking book away for a while!
