Congratulations on the nomination for your food blog. You certainly deserve it. I don't know how many times I have gone there to steal a recipe. I don't always comment, but check it out quite often. My favorites are your fried chicken (practically full proof) and your pizza dough, and your idea for sauce...I could go on and on.

You deserve not only the nomination but also to have a good score - well, you deserve to win but, if not, a good score is not bad!
