The news...


Long time readers of this blog know how much I heart Jamie Oliver, his recipes and his overall food philosophy. This isn't a new admiration, I've been a fan since SPH and I lived in London ten years ago and I would habitually watch his cookery shows.

When we returned to the United States, he came to my work to promote healthy eating, and SPH and I had a chance to meet our favorite food celebrity:


So you can imagine my delight when I got word from Jamie Oliver's Food Foundation that they loved my blog and had chosen it as a Jamie Oliver Food Revolution Blog of the Month.

I think I actually got up from my computer and did a little jig, I felt so giddy.

One of my biggest food mentors, recognizing little ole' me and my food writing. Whoa.

I am so humbled. And, in need of a new photo of myself for the blog...yikes.

Life is sweet,
SPC
