Hungry Girl Coming to Rochester

Lisa Lillien (aka Hungry Girl) is coming to the Pittsford Wegmans this Thursday, May 8, at 6 p.m.

I joined the daily Hungry Girl email newsletter many years ago, and followed with interest as Lisa started doing promotional appearances, then got her own show on the Food Network. Truth be told, I'd be VERY interested in learning about her business and the ascendancy of the Hungry Girl brand. She sure seems like a savvy businesswoman.

But that's not what her event is about. She's promoting her new book -- The Hungry Girl Diet -- along with products that are featured on the diet.

I agreed to help publicize this event on my blog, and was delighted to receive this great package in the mail with her The Hungry Girl Diet book and assorted Flatout products. I've been paging through the diet -- haven't jumped in yet --  and my family immediately got to work testing those Flatout goodies. We've been really been happy with them; I'll post about them separately.

Here's a link to the Facebook page for the event.

(Disclosure: I've agreed to blog about this event for a small fee. Don't tell them, but I would have done it for free.)
