Howdy y'all. I'm just back from Austin, TX where I ate what has to be the world's best cupcake - the James Brown (you guessed it -- a chocolate cupcake with chocolate buttercream frosting) at Sugar Mama's Bakeshop on South 1st Street. If you're ever in Austin for SxSW or any other reason, I recommend making a quick stop to sample Sugar Mama's goodies.
When I get home, I saw that Saveur has started accepting nominations for its 2012 Best Food Blogs Awards. I didn't win last year but that doesn't mean I can't win this year!
That's where YOU come in... Will you take two minutes (if that) to nominate me?
It's truly easy and you don't have to sign up for anything or create an account. Here's what you do:
1. Go to this page: http://www.saveur.com/food-blog-awards/nominations.jsp and enter my blog's URL (http://www.gardenofeatingblog.com) in the URL section.
2. Choose a category. You can pick up to three but I think that I'd just go with "Best Cooking Blog" for starters unless you feel moved to add something else (in which case, feel free!)
3. Add a short explanation of why you're nominating The Garden of Eating - this is obviously up to you! (But please don't say because I asked you :))
4. Enter your name.
5. Enter your email.
6. Un-check the three boxes unless you want to get those emails. And then click "Submit".
That's all! Thank you in advance.
