I love you all! And I love your food, too! In the beginning, I thought I would focus this blog on how to write and publish a cookbook based on my book, Recipe for a Cookbook. Then I realized that since this is supposed to be a foodie blog, it would probably be
a good idea to offer some food -- duh!
I didn't have a camera to take pictures of food and didn't have the foggiest idea how to upload pictures from a camera to the computer. I had to ask my daughter how this worked. LOL. So then I bought a camera and got the hang of it, but definitely need to improve my food photography skills. Maybe by the time I reach my 200th post,
I can offer you better pictures.
Before moving forward, I thought it might be nice to look back and show you my two most popular food posts: Sauteed Chicken and Baby Bella Mushrooms Served Over Garlic Spinach is the favorite so far. Coming in a close second is my Hoppin' John Kickin' Chili that
I welcomed in the New Year with.
And now on to the Foodie Blog Party: As many of you know, my cookbook, Foods and Flavors of San Antonio, was just published on Monday. Woohoo!!!!! I'm having
a party, A Fiesta of Foods and Flavors, to celebrate the birth of my new cookbook. This month-long blog party in March at Foods and Flavors of San Antonio will feature Tex-Mex recipes from foodies and from my new cookbook. You're all invited to the party!
I'm getting the party started early by giving away a copy of my cookbook this month on my Foods and Flavors of San Antonio blog. During the Fiesta foodie event in March for my official book launch, there will also be presents: My cookbook (of course!), San Antonio T-shirts and refrigerator magnets. Click on the Fiesta link for details.
To celebrate my 100th post, I'm also giving
away a copy of Foods and Flavors of San Antonio on this blog. Leave me a comment and you have a chance to win my new cookbook! A winner will be drawn at random on February 28th.
Because this blog wouldn't be what it is today without all my foodie friends, I've created an award for all of you. Some of you are foodie friends I've known for a while, some of you are new foodie friends, and some of you are a foodie friend I haven't met yet. Most awards come with rules; this one has no rules because friendship has no rules. Feel free to post this foodie friends award on your sidebar, then share it with all your foodie friends.
