As most of you now know, I’ve come to the end of my journey in Project Food Blog- but HEY, no worries! I’ve got plenty of cool Halloween recipes to keep me busy now! I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for your continued support over the past few weeks. It’s been a wild and very, very stressful ride, but SO worth it! I’ve made some great friends, and I was lucky enough to make it through 4 rounds with some of the best food bloggers I know! It’s been….amazing. So, here’s a quick little video Izzy and I made- I hope you enjoy!

Ok, enough silliness- I really do have some amazing people (and non-people) to thank. Number one: my husband, Joel. Not only did he have to live with me during these weeks of stress, drama and panic attacks, he did it with a smile on his face and an encouraging word everytime I needed it. And he ate every single thing I made- and loved it. Amazing.

Number two: Miss Izzy-Bear. My sweet little doggy. My ace in the hole. 😉 Who could EVER resist that face??

Number three: my mom and dad. My mom endured thousands of phone calls, texts and emails with ideas, rants and tantrums. She let me bounce ideas off of her for hours at a time. She gave me ideas, advice and talked me off a ledge a couple of times. My mom seriously, seriously rocks. My dad was my proof reader and biggest fan. He drove all the way out to our house, just to proof-read one of my PFB posts. He texted me every single time I advanced to say congratulations. I really have the best parents. Thank you guys, SO much.

And lastly, number four: YOU. You all left me comment after comment of encouraging messages every single round. I’ve said it a million times and I’ll say it again, I really have the BEST readers! Thanks again, for everything- I love you all!!



  1. 🙁 I was so sad you didn’t make it. Your nachos post was so fun! Oh well, on to bigger and better things for you, my dear!

  2. After I saw my little trophy missing from my little window, I had a list of about 6 people I went searching for hoping they made it. I’m sorry you didn’t make it. I’m a little bummed, but now thinking of maybe a blog redesign and looking forward to a wonderful fall weekend. I’ll still make some pizza but won’t be so rushed to get it done.

    Have a great weekend. I’ve REALLY enjoyed getting to know you and I’m so glad I added you to my Google reader. 🙂

  3. Love your video and love that picture of Izzy! Precious! I know I already told you this, but I think it’s awesome that you were a) brave enough to enter and b) that you made it as far as you did. That’s certainly a feat in itself. 🙂
