I love books. So much in fact that my 5th grade teacher once ratted me out to my mom that I “read too much”. I couldn’t help it – I had already finished the required reading book so what else could I do in class except read other books?
To this day, my love affair with books continues to grow. Whenever I find myself without social plans, my heart flutters with glee at the thought of spending an entire afternoon in Barnes & Noble or Shakespeare & Co.
So you can only imagine my elation when I found out that one of my recipes was selected by Foodista to be published in the first EVER cookbook to emerge from social media – Foodista Best Of Food Blogs Cookbook. I screamed, I cried, I did a little dance – something I wrote and created was going to be printed in a real book!
The beautiful volume boasts of 100 delicious recipes and tantalizing food-porn photos from bloggers around the world, many of whom I have become friends with through the Food Blogosphere. It is a great honor to be included amongst such talent, and I can say firsthand that this book has been my bedtime reading for the past few weeks. The recipes truly highlight the originality and diversity of the food blogger community.
To celebrate the book release, Foodista is offering a chance to win prizes for those who buy the book on Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010 from the hours of 1-2pm (Eastern Standard Time). See here for more details. This book would make an wonderful and unique Holiday gift for any foodie, so grab a few copies now!
