I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Today I say thank you for being alive, for the love of my husband, the support of my friends, the sun in the sky, the challenges in life that give me a chance to grow, the glorious stuff I pile up on spoons and forks, and every breath I take.  Lastly, I say thank you the Big and Great inspiration that fills me with the hope to be a better person and create something beautiful in everything I do. Being nominated for Best Piece of Culinary Writing is the sweetest frosting on my birthday cake and something I am incredibly thankful for.

    I can’t remember how I came across your blog, but I remember loving it immediately. That, and, I was excited when I saw you were nominated for a Saveur award. Then, after reading the other entries-and here, perhaps I expose a bias-I had the impression that yours conveyed the most compelling message in the best (and non-precious) way. Your piece not only gave me a glimpse into a world different from my own but gave me something more than a vague warm feeling to take away-it gave me something more, which was your personal insight to reflect on. Thank you for that, and good luck! You have my vote!

  2. So deserved. I come to your blog like I throw myself on the couch — for respite and insight. Thanks for doing this so lovingly, so devotedly.
