I wanted to share some very exciting news with you!
If you happen to follow me on twitter, are Jenn or Jenny (thanks for helping me edit my answers), my twin sister or a few of my close friends, you might already know this. But I tried not to blabber about this too much (I even did not tell my mom!).
Today I was featured in Washingtonian's The Blogger Beat. I had a great time working with Emily and Chris Leaman, and can't wait for all of you to check out my Q&A here. Below is a quick preview of the interview. Enjoy! (Special Thank you to Jenna for nominating me.)

Olga Berman launched her blog, Mango & Tomato, in May 2008 to document her adventures in the kitchen. She’d been posting on another site for nearly a year, but after discovering a burgeoning food-blog scene in Washington, she decided she wanted to join in.
She posts recipes, recaps of food events, restaurant reviews, and some drool-worthy photos of her kitchen successes. Berman also participates in cooking challenges and contests with other bloggers and documents her creations at Mango & Tomato.
Berman, a Bureau of Labor Statistics employee, grew up in Moscow and moved to Seattle when she was 13. After graduating from the University of Washington, she got a job at the Department of Labor and moved to the DC area. She has lived in Arlington for seven years.
We caught up with Berman to get her best recipes and tips for succeeding in the kitchen. And because she’s a frequent traveler, we found her favorite food destination. Read on for her answers.
AND if that wasn't enough, Washington Post included a photograph of my soup and a little write up in their Cooking for the Snowpocalypse feauture! I will be posting a recipe this Friday or weekend, so check in soon!
