Ok, so I did go to General Mills last week

And I haven't talked much about it yet. Sorry. But almost everyone else who went has, so maybe you heard about it.

So here's what happened. General Mills flew me and a few other bloggers out to talk about being gluten-free. It was interesting, we got some really good food, and I made some new friends. I'm not going to give you the rundown about what we talked about or everything we did, since my fellow bloggers have already done a good job of that.

Check out their posts on the trip here:
Amanda at a Few Shortcuts
Maureen at Hold the Gluten
Linda at Gluten-free Homemaker
Rachel at the Crispy Cook
Shirley at Gluten Free Easily
Amy at the Savvy Celiac

The other bloggers who were there were:
Cinde from Gluten Free Taste of Home
Vanessa the Celiac Princess
Lynn from Lynn's Kitchen Adventures

As well as author Danna Korn and Shelley from R.O.C.K.
caprese salad
We did eat a GREAT dinner at Biaggis.
some sort of meaty, delicious pizza
I had salmon, shrimp, and risotto with cream sauce
Wicked good chocolate lava cake

And had a delicious lunch from Big Bowl. I wish we had these restaurants around here!

We had a good muffin and bread spread for breakfast too!


  1. D'oh! I'm a blogger (albeit only a wee bit with the gluten-free) and I work right across the highway from General Mills - we can see their HQ from our windows.

  2. Great job, Jill! Your photos are absolutely wonderful! You look so cute in the group photo. :-) I'm so glad we got to meet in person and sit beside each other at dinner. Can't wait until our next get together! ;-)


  3. Hi Jill,

    It’s Cinde from Gluten Free Taste of Home. Great post! It was fun hanging out with you and Maureen at the airport, and at General Mills!

    I hope you don't mind that I used your group photo in my post; I gave you full credit for it of course. :)

    Here is a link to my post about the trip if you want to check it out:


    Happy Holidays!
