Foodbuzz – The Top 9

I made the Foodbuzz Top 9 on June 3, 2012!

I was not having a good night on Saturday. I mixed up my long and short run days and I knew I’d have to squeeze a 14K run in on Sunday on top of being in the kitchen all day (that’s 8.69 miles for the non-metric folks). Throw in the possibility of rain and I began channeling my inner Eeyore.

Fast forward to Sunday morning: it’s grey and cloudy out and I’m still in a funk I sit down my computer with my coffee and check my email and there’s one from Foodbuzz. For those of you who don’t know, Foodbuzz is a community of food bloggers. I look closely at the subject line and it says “Congratulations: You Made the Foodbuzz Top 9!” Huh? That can’t be right. So I click on the link in the email and sure enough, there I am on the top 9. OMG! That was unexpected and turned my day right around! I was ecstatic because I’m relatively new to the blogging community and still figuring things out. The post that got me on there was my strawberry basil scone recipe. If you haven’t seen my recipe, go check it out!

What are some of the things that help to cheer you up when you’re feeling down?

  1. Congrats! That’s amazing!!!

    One time, I pinned something that made it to the ‘popular’ page on pinterest, and ended up being repinned a few thousand times. That made me feel awesome, haha, even though it shouldn’t have. I love little things like that 😉

  2. Not a blogger myself, but a recipe scrounger. That basil strawberry scone idea made me subscribe. I haven’t had scones since I left my home country years ago, though they were a mainstay growing up. Maybe because they were so common growing up, I haven’t bothered making any in my new abode – too been there done that. But the combo of strawberry and basil along with the sugar sprinkled on an egg wash gave a fresh approach I decided was worth a try. Thanks for brightening my day.

    1. Thanks for dropping by and subscribing Doug! The egg wash gives the scones a lovely golden color when you bake them. If you try the recipe, let me know how it turns out for you 🙂

      1. Yes, I tried the day I saw it. Nothing like what I grew up with, these were as you said flaky with a crunch from the sugar and egg, instead of just soft and fluffy. Thanks!
