Blog Lovin', Press Mentions, and a TV Appearance


This post has been in the wings for nearly a month now, but a certain
cute little distraction has kept me from wrapping it up and hitting publish. Finally, here's the recap.

This year is just three months old, yet it's already been an exciting one! I'll try to keep this really short, but I wanted to throw out a few links to the kind folks who have noticed my blogs and given me a little exposure in 2012.

Here they are!

UtHC a Canadian Weblog Awards Winner.

Huge thanks to the good folks behind the 2011 Canadian Weblog Awards. Somehow the jurors saw it fit to award this space with third prize in Best Weblog About Family & Parenting.

I'm so appreciative of the nod and honored to have Under the High Chair in the company of the 1st and 2nd place winners, Home to Heather and Coffee With Julie.

Congratulations to all the CWA winners!

FBC Featured Member

The awesome people over at Food Bloggers of Canada made me their Featured Blogger not long ago, causing me much embarrassment over their glowing recap of my place in the Canadian food bloggers scene.

Thanks, Mardi, Ethan and Melissa!

Best Health Magazine

An interview I had late last fall with Best Health Magazine appeared in their March 2012 print issue on newsstands now. Titled 'How four female bloggers turned their passion into cash', it features Canadian bloggers Schmutzie, Andrea, Heather and myself.

I really appreciated how the article's writer, Camilla Cornell, closely listened to my story and wrote a very accurate recap of my blogging history. If you're curious at all as to how I got started, definitely grab the magazine or read the article online.



Family Cook Off on Food Network Canada

The much anticipated Family Cook Off series finally premiered in early March and we threw a little viewing party, despite the fact that I was hugely pregnant. Friends and family converged on my sofas to watch my mother, sisters and I battle it out in a friendly cooking competition.

Labeled as "wild women who can get a little saucy..." the show definitely played up our rural upbringing and had fun framing me as the Kitchen Nazi. Okay, I admit it, I'm the boss in the kitchen, there's just no way around that once one has had years of experience in a fine-dining kitchen.

So IF you are in Canada, you can watch our episode online right HERE! It's only 22 minutes, so not much of a time suck.

The editing left out a few interesting parts; for example, at 15:29 minutes in, Haidi cut herself badly while trying to peel the (horrifically rock hard, unripe) peaches provided. She essentially signaled to Miranda to take over, and was out of commission for the rest of the countdown.

Alas, such excitement was not included.

We were super proud of our dishes and had a blast filming! My dad and brother were in the audience (front row) and it was just an unforgettable experience to have together.

I can't wait to see what the rest of the year holds!
