KitchenAid + White on Rice Couple + Joy the Baker + Cristina Ferrare = 3 F’s (Fantastic Food Fun)

Anyone who loves their cooking appliances knows KitchenAid takes the stand mixer to a new level.  It’s numero uno, top notch, cadillac supreme, blue ribbon, first class, peachy keen, stellar, boss…. you get what I’m getting at.  IT’S A FINE PIECE OF MACHINERY!

This past Wednesday I found myself among a slew of talented creative bloggers at a event hosted by none other than The White on Rice Couple and KitchenAid.

A.)  I was completely thrilled to be invited, and meet many of my blogging peers that I had never acquainted in person.

B.)  Joy the Baker and Cristina Ferrare gave cooking demonstrations along with their new cookbooks, something I really enjoyed observing.

C.)  I got to play with the new shiny KitchenAid toys!

Here is a pocket-sized photo documentary run down of the day:

KitchenAid citrus juicer attachment working hard to freshly squeeze OJ for tasty mimosas….Starting off the morning bubbly.


Todd and Diane sharing their journey through videos, photographs and their heartfelt storytelling.  There was not a dry eye in the house.  In simple words, they are genuinely caring people and that translates through their work.

The team posing before the kitchen went into full swing.  From L to R: Todd Porter, Joy the Baker, Cristina Ferrare, Diane Cu, Rachel Barbarotta, and Alex Ferrare.




White on Rice Couple made all the food and it was goody-goody yum-drops.  Click here for the Spicy Sriracha White Bean Dip recipe.  I’m waiting for them to post their Chicken salad recipe…. Any day Todd and Diane. 🙂

Then last but not least:  Joy the Baker taught us all how to make marshmallow frosting.  She was very sweet and so were the cupcakes.


Photo of Joy and I taken by: Sara O’ Donnell a.k.a. Average Betty.  All other photos taken by me, Nicole Presley.

Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post. Just a fun event I had the pleasure of attending.

    What a GOOD LOOKING mixer, and what a fun event! Maybe you can explain to me why, whenever I use my mixer, the food ends up on the ceiling.

  24. Dear Nicole,
    Thanks you for your post, Rice is a fantastic staple to go with lots of meals, but if not cooked right it can completely ruin the delicious meal you have just prepared. So here are some top tips to create the perfect fluffy white rice to accompany any meal.
    Good Job!
