Apologies in advance to any vegans or vegetarians in the group, for some reason, there’s lots of flesh-eating events coming up over the next few weeks.

Cookbook Love from DC to Austin

What better way than food to share our love for one another? My dear friend Emily of Wild and Crazy Pearl combined her love of food and photography to put together, along with writer Beth Kanter, Washington, DC Chef’s Table: Extraordinary Recipes from the Nation’s Capital.

The Austin Food Blogger Favorites includes over 40 categories, with about half of the over 100 members participating in the survey.
Earlier today, I did a little promotion for the City Guide …
