Blog Brulee + Caramelized Banana Chia Seed Creme Brulee

{Disclaimer: My attendance at Blog Brulee is being partially funded by the sponsors listed below.  Additionally, by writing this post I have received a registration discount to attend Blog Brulee.}

So in 8 days (!) I get to go to Vermont for Blog Brulee.

Caramelized Banana Chocolate Creme Brulee-9

I feel like it’s Christmas.  I’m all giddy with excitement and whatnot. 

Vermont.  I’ve never been, but I’ve heard just the most fabulous things.  I’m going for a conference.  Well, not really a conference.  This isn’t your typical impersonal conference with a bazillion people milling about.  No, this is only 20 healthy food/Registered Dietitian bloggers getting together for what I’m calling the best sleepover of all time.  ALLLL TIME.  I’ve been told there will be chocolate.  It’s not a sleepover without chocolate. Ya know?

So Blog Brulee is a 2 night event from September 12th to September 14th. 

It’ll basically be me spending time with bloggers who I spend all day losing my mind over how brilliant they are.  For instance, the founders of the event are Regan Jones, Robin Plotkin, Teaspoon of Spice & Kumquat Blog

Some attendees include The Adventures of MJ & Hungryman, RDelicious Kitchen, Nutritioulicious, Living Well Kitchen, Food Confidence, NourishRDs, The Foodie Dietitian, Love & Zest, Fresh Food Perspectives, Marisa Moore Nutrition, Grass Roots Nutrition, An Avocado a Day, The Fresh Beet.   I can not wait to meet them and pick their genius brains.

I love blogging.  Love it love it love it.  When I tell people I wanna blog for a living they give me a ” oh that’s great.”  But you can tell they don’t take you seriously.  Before I started blogging, I would have had the same thoughts about blogging for a living.  The whole, “that’s not a real career.”  But then I realized blogging can be more than a silly hobby.  About a month ago Andrew and I optimized the ads on immaeatthat.  Between ad revenue and ebook sales, I’m excited to see the potential of the blog. 

I’m so looking forward to this weekend and for the chance to mingle with women who are creating their careers around blogging (aka exactly what I want to build my career around).  I can’t wait to learn how to build a better blog and have the chance to learn more about food photography, branding and monetizing from these awesome speakers

And I’m really excited to eat a bunch of delicious, to-die-for food from all these sponsors…

  22. Sounds amazing. Going to try to make a paleo version for us non dairy people.

  23. I made this recipe today. We didn’t like the combination of cocoa and yoghurt at all. However, I am really thankful, because you taught me to blend the pudding afterwards. A good way to get rid of all those chia seeds between your teeth. This will work for every recipe. So… thanks a lot and keep up the good work!
