    Happy New Year to you, Sam, and Fred, too! (And yes, the new picture of y'all is adorable.)

    I am still thrilled that the food blog community came together so well for this event--it really does show the truth to the saying that it only takes a dedicated group of people to change the world.

    Pim had a great idea, and we all came together to make it happen.

    And congrats to Granny, too!

    thanks everyone - i am thrilled for my granny that she won! Especially as it is the kind of book that I think she might like a lot.
