As some of you have already noticed (and sweetly brought to my attention), the results are in for December’s “Does My Blog Look Good In This?” (DMBLGIT). Guess who was one of four Winners of Aesthetics? Just guess.
Or rather…me, Marc and Marc’s mom (Cynthe). Several weeks ago, Marc’s mom took a little trip to Whole Foods and came back, waxing poetic about tasty poached pears they had in their deli. Marc and I researched recipes, and came up with an interesting concoction infused with saffron and a vanilla bean to poach them in. Marc took and doctored the photo (which I was really proud of), and lo and behold we won.
Pears poached in a saffron, vanilla bean and white wine syrup
There were beautiful photos of very tasty looking dishes that others entered, so I am even more pleased to be chosen from such stiff competition. Thanks again to the judges and host. It’s always wonderful to find food bloggers out there that you wouldn’t know about otherwise. I know I added a few new bookmarks. Oh, and each entrant includes the camera they use, and now I have a SERIOUS case of camera envy.
