Hi, All.

Hope you had a great weekend.

Before posting any recipes or restaurant reviews, I wanted to share two pieces of news with you.

1) I'm the new DC Cooking Examiner! How did this happen? A while ago I received an email from Alicia, DC Dining Examiner, asking if she could add my blog to her list of links. I was thrilled. Then, Anna emailed me and said that DC Examiner had a few freelancing positions opened and I should apply. I filled out an online application describing why I would be the perfect choice for the DC Cooking examiner (I love to cook, I have a cooking blog, etc.), and was chosen! I'm really excited. Now I'll get to share my recipes, inspirations and cooking advice with a wider audience.

2) The winner of the Save BOOBS, Win a Cookbook contest is Heather! She will receive The Complete Whole Grains Cookbook: 150 Recipes for Healthy Living. With the help of my family, friends and food bloggers like Heather, I have been able to reach and surpass my goal of $1,800! I'm now only 4 weeks away from the Avon Breast Cancer Walk.
