The Winners Have Been Announced…

And I am officially not even close to being the Best Food Blog winner in the 2007 Weblog Awards. But, I am happy to say that I did not end up in last place! So thanks to everyone who voted for me, I really appreciate the support! And of course I would like to send out a big congratulations to Serious Eats, the seriously big winners!

Serious Eats, I seriously ate one of these cannoli this afternoon in honor of your win.

I then proceeded to eat one of those mini strawberry cream tarts (top right) to celebrate my own fifth place victory!

Cheers to us all!

    I’m glad you’re eating something good to celebrate, and even getting nominated is an honor so celebrate that. And while I like Serious Eats well enough, I beg to point out that’s imho, it’s really a website, not a blog. So in my opinion, they missed the shot in this category. Blogher didn’t win either, but we are also happy to be nominated.

    I hope you’re making the absolute utmost of your last few hours in Sicily.

    As cliched as it may sound, I think it was quite an honor for you to be nominated. Congratulations!

    Kalyn: I’m trying my best to get out and enjoy these last days in Sicily. It’s difficult to figure out what to do because there are so many things I will miss!

    Jennifer: You’re right, it was an honor. I never expected to win but it was a definite confidence booster to see so many people get out and vote for me!

    Vegeyum: Thanks 🙂

    Sara: I agree!

    Do you think you send as an e-mail attachment one of everything in the case? 🙂

    Congratulations on your fifth place finish.

    Bummer, I voted everyday and so did all my friends! Oh well, I’m sure the winner deserved it. Congrats on 5th!

    I think fifth is fabulous, Nicole! Good for you!!!

    I know you’re busy taking in your last days in Sicily (another good for you!), but if you have a moment to stop by to help me raise money for Share Our Strength towards ending hunger in America, I’d REALLY appreciate it. You don’t have to buy anything, pay anything or even do anything — other than download a cool song by Corinne Bailey Rae and pick up some new holiday recipes (and a nifty widget for your blog if you’re so inclined). Thanks for your support . . . and enjoy your farewell to Sicily!

    Beautiful. It is funny how food is fun to look at. I enjoyed doing that while in New York City last week.

    Thanks for sharing your trip with all of us.
