Sharing my Kitchen Sink Skillet with you today and my trip to Chicago with Albertsons Company! Such a fun day.
Kitchen Sink Skillet Cookie

Had a fun trip to Chicago with Albertsons Company to learn about their O Organics products.  Love that you can buy organic at a lower price with all of their O Organic products.  They believe everyone should have the opportunity to go organic, which is why they offer their high-quality O Organics brand at a value compared to leading national organic brands.  O Organics features more than 300 USDA Certified items for every occasion throughout the store from fresh fruit and vegetables to wholesome dairy and meats, cereals, snacks and more.

We started our time together at breakfast.  How lovely is this room?

We got to browse through many of the O Organic products and enjoy a delicious Overnight Oats bar.

We had a cooking demo from the lovely Annessa Chumbley, registered dietician, who showed us some delicious recipes with the O Organics products.  Some healthy pancakes, pasta and mini meatloaves.  She’s teamed up with the Albertsons Company family of stores to share her tips and recipes. She was great!

One of the highlights of our day was getting to cook and bake in the Rick Bayless Kitchen.  We had dozens and dozens of O Organics products to create whatever we wanted.  So many choices, it was hard to decide!
