Last Stop.

Looks like it's time for me to exit the crazy ride that is Project Food Blog. Yesterday I learned with disappointment and a few tears that challenge seven would be my last stop and I would not be continuing in the contest.

It was a bittersweet realization because, while I would have loved to keep going to the end, I still have gained so much from this competition that I feel as though I've already won.

I have met so many ambitious, friendly and passionate people with beautiful blogs. People that I will never forget. Like Liren from Kitchen Confidante with an admirable way with words and a love for all things food. Or Damaris from Kitchen Corners with a kind heart and beautiful photography. Or Isabelle from Good Food, Good Wine and a Bad Girl with an adorable sense of humour and a diverse repertoire of recipes. And so many more. You know who you are!

I have learned so much from this contest about myself and what I'm capable of. I never would have made a vlog if it weren't for challenge seven. I never would have tried Kue Lapis Legit if it weren't for challenge two. I never would have knew how to make the perfect pizza if it wasn't for challenge five.

These challenges were designed to motivate us to be better and make our blogs better. Each challenge pushed me to improve my photography, writing and recipes and I am so grateful for that. That will always stay with me, winner or not.

I have had so much fun and I am thankful for this opportunity!






















































































And remember, there's always next time!

I’m Blushing.

For real I am. I don't blush too often. It's rare.

But if you were profiled in a reputable online Canadian food journal you'd blush too.

Good Food Revolution has featured me in an article along with four other lovely Canadian food bloggers. We're the last five Canadians standing strong in Project Food Blog and we're all in it to win it.

Mardi from Eat Live Travel Write, Isabelle from Good Food, Good Wine and a Bad Girl, Angela from Oh She Glows and Heena from Tiffin Tales. I'm in good company. We're all writers, photographers and foodies. You should drop buy and visit their beautiful blogs. Maybe give them a comment or two.

If you'd like to read the article you can find it here. It's been beautifully composed by Beverley who's also blogs at Potato Chops and Boneless Chicken. She's clever. Thank you Beverley!

Foodbuzz is a US-based community of food bloggers, but it's important to note that the breadth of that community is international. Let's see if we can manage to have a Canadian win the big prize shall we?

We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Program.

First let me just say thank you to everyone who voted and encouraged me so far. I couldn't be here without you! I'm nervous, excited and, above all, grateful. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

“Channel your inner Julia Child and put one of your favorite recipes on film. Pick a recipe from your blog archives and make it come to life on video by showing readers the perfect way to poach an egg or just how passionate you are about seasonal ingredients. Keep your video under 5 minutes for maximum impact.”

I did my hair up all pretty. I made sure my eyelashes were expertly curled. I sported my cute new pink polka dot apron. I spent two days scrubbing every inch of my kitchen. I practiced my smile in the mirror.

Sure I might say “so” a few too many times. I might prattle on about my love of demerara sugar. I might have neglected to peel the sticker off the back of my cake pan even after using it twenty some odd times. I might not have a fancy kitchen island and used my deep freezer covered in a tablecloth instead. I might be wearing glass pearls instead of the real thing.

As Julia Child would say, no excuses, no apologies. This is me. Unadulterated Lindsey.

Oh and there's cake. We can't forget the cake!
