I'm sure by this point, you, my loyal readers are getting tired of hearing about the joys of Eat, Write, Retreat, the food bloggers conference I am trying so diligently to win my way into. Never fear, the end is almost in sight, after the feastie scholarship (see below), there is only one more coveted spot being given away. So at most, after this post, you will only see one more post on it, unless I actually manage to win a golden ticket, in which case you will get to read all about my experience after I get home =).
Feastie is a fun new site that let's you search top food blogs in different ways, like by ingredient - which is great when you are staring into the fridge, trying to decide what to make with what you've got on hand. Or, if you don't have what you need to make a recipe, feastie even helps you create grocery lists from the recipes you are looking at! As if that wasn't enough reason to check them out, they are also offering a scholarship to Eat, Write, Retreat by hosting a photo potluck and allowing you to choose your favorite photo. If I make it to the Top 10, which will be announced on March 14th, 2012, I hope I can count on your support to help me make it into the number one spot.
The hardest part about this was that we were only allowed to submit one photo for consideration, that's like asking me to pick my favorite dog! I considered using a photo from my latest post on Greek lamb and olive empanadas, because I like how that turned out, but in the end, I kept going back to shots I took at No. 246. Those shots are truly some of the most appetizing I have ever taken, especially the one of the prosciutto, although the fried mozzarella is a close second. Every time I see it, it makes my mouth water and I want to reach into the screen and take a bite! I hope you'll agree with me and help vote me the winner of the scholarship.
