I went to the Foodbuzz Festival in San Francisco last weekend, and all I got were these silly photo booth pictures with my dear friend Tracy of Shutterbean.  

Ok…. that’s entirely untrue.  

I walked away from the Foodbuzz Festival with more kitchen gear than I could carry, pockets full of fellow food blogger business cards, and a belly full of incredible food.  


A room full of food bloggers means a room full of cameras.  So many.  Rather than crowd around and take pictures of food…. I just took pictures of people taking pictures of food.  Weird.  I know.  

This also happened…


…which was extremely surprising and extremely exciting.  The fact that I ran off the stage after accepting this award adds to my charm, right?  First I blushed.  Then I stumbled a bit.  I dropped my phone.  I might have thrown in an awkward curtsy… and then I ran.  

 Thank you to every single one of you who voted for me.  Seriously, friends.  This means a lot to me.  

Also… a big, fat, wet kiss to all of the darling people at Foodbuzz who put such a belly filling event together for us.  I hella heart you Foodbuzz.  And Tracy…. we’ve had heart-to-hearts at two different blog conventions…. we’re totally friends now, like it or not.

    BTW, you should definitely put yourself in for Bon Appetit’s “BlogEnvy” competition. Seriously – the recipes you grace us with could totally do laps around some of the nominees. It’s a self-entry kind of thing, otherwise I would have been the first to throw your name into the hat. So… yeah. Go and enter so we can vote for you!


  3. Man, I’m SO excited for you! And boy, howdy, do you deserve it! I love your blog. It’s the first one I check EVERY DAY!

  4. Hey wow – congratulations Joy! You really deserve it. I just wanted to say – I’ve been following your blog for some time, and it’s always full of sunshine and great recipes – thank you!
