UtHC Bulletin: An Exciting Week

This has been one happenin' week for me! An update is obviously needed at this point because it's all good news that needs to be shared.
So here goes...

Today is the last day to enter my super-duper basket giveaway at Simple Bites. 'Basket' giveaway means ONE lucky person wins the WHOLE shebang. Are you feeling lucky? Winner will stock their kitchen with nearly $500 worth of pretty cool products. You have until midnight to enter, so get over there and leave a comment.

Blog Aid: Recipes for Haiti
Yesterday our fundraiser for Haiti wrapped up. The Blog Aid cookbook was a spectacular success, selling 1818 cookbooks in a little over a week and raising, with matched funds from the Canadian government, $47,166.00 for Haiti relief.

Not bad for a bunch of food bloggers!
A huge thank you to all who purchased our cookbook--you now have a limited edition book to treasure. My copies have already arrived and I have nothing but good things to say about it. I can't wait to try those recipes and it's pretty cool to see our little family photo on those glossy pages.

Simple Bites Launch
Five blogs launched Monday under the Simple Living Media umbrella and were met with a very warm welcome indeed. My part in this, as you know, was Simple Bites.

I hardly know what to say about the enthusiastic response to Simple Bites, as it has completely take my by surprise. I'm exceedingly grateful for your support. Many of you have joined me over there and for those of you who haven't visited yet, you are welcome anytime!

As editor, I had set goals for SB--three month goals that were surpassed after three days. Things haven't slowed down all week, and I have sat, mouth agape, watching the stats come in and reading the comments. It's been amazing.

Danny continues to wax eloquent about it all, remarking "Hey, people gotta eat".
Guess he's got a point there. I'm looking forward to what lies ahead.

Montreal Centre-Ville Magazine
I was fortunate enough to be featured in a local magazine with some of Monteal's creme de la creme food bloggers. How my name ever made it past the editors, I'll never know, but nevertheless, there is a lovely little blurb about UtHC and photo of yours truly.
Also featured is Gastronote, endless banquet, le gourmet galopin, and 2Capriciux.

Cooking School
For some reason, I have always held back over talking about my experiences in culinary school. It was both a good and bad experience, with a little 'ugly' thrown in, and I always felt like there wasn't enough water under the bridge before I made events public.

Well, shy no longer. Today was the first post in my 'Cooking School' series on Simple Bites, a series that will be as helpful as it is entertaining. At least, that's what I am hoping. You can read it and decide for yourself!

My time is up! No Valentine's Day post from me, sorry...

My plan for V-day is to cook up some of our filet mignon that I have been hoarding, and create another recipe for the Beef Chronicles.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Congrats on a fun-filled, productive week. It must feel very rewarding after all the hard work you've done.

Re the beef chronicles: I just took my kids on a field trip to our local butcher shop where we watched the whole process from start to finish. Talk about fascinating! And instead of grossing me out, it made me hungry for beef (though they were butchering pork when we visited)---very weird.

Félicitations. Est-ce que le magazine est Montréal Centre Ville? Je n'en ai jamais entedu parler.

Cheri said...

I hope you are able to get some rest this weekend! You deserve it for sure!!

Paula from Amen Corners said...

Congratulations Aimee, things are in high gear for you right now and all your hard work is seeing results in spades!

Jan (Family Bites) said...

Wow...what an exhilarating week, I'm sure. I, too, fall into the "love" Nigella camp and am fascinated by this recipe and the addition of chocolate chips to the chili. I'm certain it must be really good.

I'm glad you had a eventful week!

Ingrid said...

WOW, I missed A LOT! :( Congrats on all the wonderful new opportunites and adventures you're embarking on.

Best wishes, always, Aimee!

I just got my copy of the cookbook today and I love it. The recipes look yummy and the photography is beautiful. What a great idea for a fund raiser.
