here’s to you


Hello from the Foodbuzz conference! I’m having a blast eating my way through the city and reuniting with great friends. I wanted to say a big THANK YOU for voting for me for best cooking blog!! I couldn’t have been more shocked last night when I won. Seriously…I’m not just saying that. I really was floored and thought they called the wrong name. So thank you! It really meant the world to me.

You guys rock. Like, totally.

    I didn’t vote for any of the awards, but I am glad you won. I appreciate that you showcase a variety of recipes on your blog and aren’t specific to only vegan or veg recipes (which seems to be the norm). I also like the balance between sweet and savory. You show that you CAN eat your greens but cook with butter too 🙂

    BAck when you had more of a food journal I thought I was just reading your blog because you write so well and your upbeat attitude shone through so well – really uplifting to read! BUT since Ive gotten more foodie, and your blog has also changed form, Ive realised you are also a fantastic cook. I LOVE your recipes – and in fact just yesterday made your bohemian wedding cake which was GREAT…. and which may well be my friends wedding cake! Wahooo!! Well deserved!
