I’m a Best of Food Blogs Cookbook contest winner!
Foodista and Andrews McMeel Publishing are thrilled to announce the winners of The Foodista Best of Food Blogs Cookbook contest! From December 1, 2009 through February 28, 2010, food bloggers worldwide were invited to submit their favorite blog posts, recipes, and photos to compete for a spot in a published cookbook. The over 1,500 submissions were first voted on by the Foodista community, then the selection process shifted into a more traditional editorial effort (informed by community votes), to choose and edit the final 100 entries.
Andrews McMeel published the winning blog posts and recipes in a beautiful, full-color, internationally distributed cookbook, released October 19, 2010. Born out of the “Blog to Book” panel at the first International Food Blogger Conference (IFBC) in 2009, the cookbook celebrates the best food bloggers worldwide.
I’m very, very, very happy to be one of the winners with my “Scallop Sandwich” appetizer recipe that was part of my New Year’s Eve dinner extravaganza last year.
Thank you Foodista.
I still pinch myself about every other day to make sure I’m not dreaming this! I’ve actually known for over a month, I just hated to say anything until I saw the book for sure, just in case they accidentally notified me…you know like the Australian beauty contest snafu. And on that note, you should have seen me when I found out, I acted about as stupid as some of those beauty contest winners act when they win…thank gawd I wasn’t on TV.
Anyway, I now have a copy in my hands, it’s official, I’m on page 22. Give the ole girl a virtual pat on the back. I’m pretty darn thrilled and extremely proud…plus my mom is gonna have a fit when she sees it.
You can buy the book here.
