Update: this contest is now over and, although we didn’t win, it was nice to be considered. Thanks to all of you who voted!


Quick announcement: Bon Appetit invited Food Loves Writing to participate in their 2009 Blog Envy contest! If you’d like, you can check out our entry, for Grandma’s oatmeal chocolate-chip cookies, by clicking through all the categories to submit a vote. (I’m on the cookie page!)

Warning: you will have to register (Apologies!), the site has been down often and some people have not been able to click through all the way. Oh, well. The important thing, obviously, is that we were invited and that, hello, Bon Appetit HAS SEEN US!!??

Shanna Mallon started Food Loves Writing back in 2008, as a way to remember her grandma and write about her life through food. Since then it's become a place leading her to a lifestyle of eating whole foods, a new home in Nashville and the love of her life, Tim. Follow Shanna on Twitter @foodloves, keep up with Food Loves Writing on Facebook and stay inspired with the monthly newsletter.

    Aw, Jacqui, you are too nice. Thank you for the congratulations and the voting and for reading and, mostly, for being a great friend!

    Hi Shannalee, thanks for your comment on my blog. Glad to know not everyone has deleted me from their readers after this long absence! I actually am not in Chicago, and have sadly had a change of plans. I was planning to move to be closer to my Grandmother, who needed some assistance, but unfortunately she passed away just a few weeks before our intended move. So no Chicago just yet, but who knows what the future holds!
    On a separate note, I can’t believe you are on the radar of BON APPETIT! AMAZING!! I am off to vote!

    Katie, Niki, JessieV & TJ: Thank you all so much, especially those of you who took the time to go over and vote. I know it’s a little hassle, and you are so kind to do it!

    Elizabeth, I am so, so sorry to hear that! Here I’ve been checking in on you the last few months, hoping to see some suburban photos, totally unaware of what you all were going through. How heartbreaking. I remember how hard it was when my grandma died. Sending a big hug to you. Let me know if there’s anything I can do.
