My little blog was nominated in the Best Food Blog – Writing category. While I didn’t win, I’d like to thank everyone that nominated me and voted for me. I’d also like to thank you for all the wonderful comments and support! It’s a pleasure to know that I have so many blog friends out there!

I’d like to extend my congratulations to Molly of Orangette who won in the Writing category … and deservedly so. Molly is an engaging writer who recently announced that she will be writing her own cookbook! I look forward to seeing it on the bookstore shelves, Molly!

I’d also like to take a moment to congratulate my dear friend Béa of La Tartine Gourmande on her victory in the Photography category. Béa and I started our blogs at around the same time and she’s seduced me with her warmth, ability and photography from the very beginning. Béa, I am so happy for you!

And finally, I’d like to mention Ilva of Lucullian Delights. Ilva was nominated in the Best Food Blog – Rural category. Her blog and her photography are a constant reminder that beauty is all around us.

Congratulations again to all the nominees and to all the winners!
