There are things I can’t recreate for you if you didn’t make it to the actual event: the mini manicure, salmon tacos & cheesecake lollipops from Chef David Burke, the performances, but I can share some super simple recipes I learned (and sampled) and some tips.

Allie Lewis Clapp , Food Editor at Real Simple was awesome. She armed me with a new quick dinner fix and 3 super simple dessert ideas that will be great for when I’m entertaining guests. All of the recipes take less than 15 minutes to make, thus upping their fabulous factor.

Lemony Shrimp with White Beans and CousCous

Chocolate Ricotta Mousse

Chocolate Panini

Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows


One of the sessions I found super informational featured personal finance journalist Farnoosh Torabi. She recaps the Real Simple event on her site where you can browse around for some great ideas for saving money. My favorite tip, which Farnoosh says was the most tweeted tip, was about selling your old tech gadgets on Gazelle.com. I will definitely be following through with that one!
