1st Annual SAVEUR Best Food Blog Awards Nomination !


The SAVEUR 1st Annual Food Blog Awards were announced earlier this week & I’m BEYOND elated & just down right giddy to announce that bell’alimento is nominated for one of them. Yep, little ole bell’alimento has been nominated for a “Best Special Interest Blog” Award *insert wild screams of joy here* Yes, I nearly fell off my chair when I saw it & then yes, of course,  more screams of joy & you know it’s coming a little happy dance! I was completely floored! I could hardly believe it but I have the screen shot to prove it tee hee!   Yes, that’s my Agnolotti alla Zucca picture right there first row in the middle!


It’s taken me this many days just to come down off the ceiling to even write this post! Does that tell you how excited I am? I mean to have been recognized for best of web on SAVEUR several times almost set me over the edge, but this, WOW, double WOW, no triple WOW! I’m ALMOST speechless. It’s an amazing honor to be recognized for your work but to be recognized by one of the foremost food icons out there, well that’s just about too much for me to handle! So a ginormous THANK YOU SAVEUR for this recognition. I truly, sincerely appreciate it. I’m honored way beyond what my vocabulary can properly express. I feel like the luckiest food blogger on the planet right now.

Just WOW! Obviously there are some amazing nominees in each of the categories. Blogs that I adore, read, admire & just plain lurve. The winners will be determined by VOTES & voting is currently open & runs through April 2nd! & the winners will be announced on April 5th.

So if you’d like to (and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t hope you would) you can vote HERE.  You will have to register to vote, but hey it’s Saveur, take one for the team! And just so you know, you will need to click the small circle beside the name and then click the big red VOTE button ; )

    “Way to go Paula”, okay sorry about the Officer quote and congrats. When the pictures look as good as yours you just want to eat the screen as well as the recipes being great, I guess Saveur just knew what they are doing.

    Norton Antivirus 360 notified me that the saveur site has 2 threats connected to it right now. I think i’ll wait till they get that handled before going on and voting for you.
