"Best Baking Blog" – I'm a Finalist!


Grab your favorite cookie and celebrate with me! I found out yesterday that Brown Eyed Baker is a finalist in the “Best Baking Blog” category for the first annual Foodbuzz Blog Awards. Foodbuzz received over 3,500 nominations for food blogs in a variety of categories and the top 5 blogs receiving nominations in each category became the finalists. Talk about shock and awe when I found out I was a finalist! I am beyond flattered  that my co-finalists are Bakerella (queen of the cake pop), Joy the Baker (one of Times Online Top 50 Food Blogs), ZoeBakes (Zoe, co-author of Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day), and the ever-popular CakeSpy. Good company, indeed. To be mentioned in the same breath as any of these supremely talented foodies and bloggers is a reward in and of itself, so a great big THANK YOU goes out to any of you that may have nominated me. It means quite a lot to me and what I have achieved thus far with Brown Eyed Baker.
