The Unilever Test Kitchen where cooking is COOKING!

My trip to New York wasn't (just) an excuse to buy new clothes and makeup; although it was a really, really good excuse to buy new clothes and makeup.

It was the 'field trip' part of being one of Unilever's  The Family Dish  Bloggers and there were a lot of activities.  All of which I had to leave my house for. This was my leave the house outfit, by the way...

This was the other travel outfit.

One of the best things we did was go to the Unilever test kitchens and omg, cook.  I knew we were going to hear about how they came up with the recipes and cook something but I really thought they meant I would be cooking in a more air quote wink wink Tracy will be cooking in the test kitchen elbow poke air quote sort of way...

Nope.

By the way, this was my going to the test kitchen and cook outfit...

Day cooking at test kitchen and visit to good housekeeping magazine

and we cooked, no air quotes.

I wished I had my Xanax when I found out cooking was COOKING but I left it in the room.  This is everyone and everything we made.
