An Award!!!! Hooray! And a contest...
My fabulous friend Mo the divalicious Food Snob gave me my first award today! I am very excited to be recognized and will pass on the love and recognition after some deep thought and Hip Hop Hustle this evening.
I always wanted to alert my readers to a contest I found out about today from a friend of mine. The folks over at Quaker, Bravo, and Top Chef are sponsoring a recipe contest. It end in a day or two so hurry up and get cooking! I plan on trying out a couple of recipes in the next 24 hours and will post the ones I don't submit (as long as they taste delicious of course).
After a fair amount of thought, I want to give the award to the two following people:
Allie over at Fat Kid Who Love Food because she has a creative writing style
Heather whose focus is Progress not Perfection because she tells it like it is
I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
