This past week I had the really wonderful opportunity of visiting the Reynolds Test Kitchen in Richmond, Virginia with the other Reynolds Real Moms. We attended a cooking school where we learned more about Reynolds products and how to use them. It was a couple days of laughing, talking and a LOT of delicious eating. At one point I exclaimed, “I don’t want to go home!” I was having such a great time and wanted to stay just a few more days. I feel so lucky to have had this experience and next week the fun will continue when I will go to Chicago to shoot some more commercials 🙂 SOOOOOOO excited!
|The Reynolds Real Moms from left to right: Whitney, Ashley (Shanty 2 Chic), Utokia (She’s Got Flavor), Me, Tiffany (Stuff Parents Need), and Emily (The Clever Housewife)|
|Anybody need some foil? Slow cooker liners? Freezer paper? We got you covered.|
|Vegetarian Quinoa that we made in an Reynolds Oven Bag.|
|Breakfast Strata (this was one of the very favorite things I ate while we were there).|
|The Breakfast Strata…only this time it was made in the slow cooker!|
|The parchment paper difference! I will never make cookies without using parchment paper again. So amazing.|
|We made 2 turkeys…one in an oven bag and one tented with foil. Both were awesome!!!|
|Bang Bang Shrimp in an oven bag…this was awesome!!!|
|Sweet potato, apple, cranberry dish in a foil packet. I loved this one! I’ll post the recipe soon 🙂|
|I felt so spoiled. They got us these cute little baskets and aprons. So fun.|
|Tiffany and Utokia making a turkey in the oven bag…Tiffany was a little grossed out by the whole process 🙂|
|Utokia was right at home cooking it up and making sure to season everything perfectly!!|
|Emily making the quinoa! We all kept pronouncing is KWIN-OAH. Ha ha!|
|Whitney, washing dishes…she’s a mother of 5!|
|Ashley, checking her phone. With 6 bloggers, there was a lot of that going on 🙂|
|Getting a tutorial on all the awesome Reynolds products!|
|The menu from The Blue Goat…where we went to dinner. The Chocolate Pate I got for dessert was the most amazing chocolate dessert I’ve ever had…and that is saying a LOT. I’m still dreaming of that dessert.|
As you can tell I had a lot of fun! Thanks Reynolds for the awesome trip!

Hope you had a great time – that's a lot of swag! I love this blog and never gave the slow cooker liners a thought before reading it here. I was a little weirded out, but tried it last night. Pretty awesome!!! Thanks for the tips and great recipes. Keep up the great work!
I live in Richmond, didn't know about Reynolds Moms. Also had never heard of The Blue Goat, just looked it up. Hope you had a good time.
