I can’t say it enough. You wonderful people are responsible for my little site being named the Best Cooking Blog of 2012 by Saveur magazine. I am happy, and still a little shocked. I was already honored by my inclusion in the same category as Tara, Kate, Kimberley, Alaina and Cara— a group of bloggers that keep me inspired and energized to do what we do. Winning the prize was the cherry on top.
I will wear the crown well and make the next year even better than the last. Hopefully there are no sex scandals that force Helen Rosner to revoke my title.
And I promise I will post a recipe soon! Like, tomorrow.
ps. special high-fives to my friends Amelia and David for their wins! And if you haven’t already, take a look through all of the nominated blogs to find some new favorites.

Congratulations, Tim! You’re so deserving of the win. Your style, your prose, your recipes, your humor, your photography, and everything else I can’t think of at the moment are spectacular – every post brings me (humble, devoted reader) joy and inspiration. Well done!

Congratulations! This blog is one of my favourite places to come to for inspiration and just a deep sigh of “ahhhh, that’s nice.” You definitely deserve that honour. I look forward to seeing what the rest of 2012 brings to this space!

I read somewhere in the distant past that people don’t fall in love with the blogger/writer but the content and it’s benefits to the person reading. I’m not too keen on that thought. If I manage to find a voicoft hat is smart and/or intriguing or personable or someone I would like to have tea cakes with–then I’m hooked, and if they are sharing some fantastic recipes also–well surely a saveur food award is much MUCH deserved!
