I Won, I Won, I Won, I Won!!!

Just a quickie post to offer MANY, MUCHO, and MEGA thanks to everyone who voted for me in the 7th Mediterranean Cooking Event, which featured Algerian-inspired recipes. I WON!!! I had 32 votes vs. 17 for the 2nd place finisher ... you like me, you really like me!

So now I wait anxiously for my prize -- a North African cookbook which will fit happily with the several Moroccan cookbooks I already own (but really, one can never have too many, can one???).

Check out my page of contest wins to see this one featured right at the tippy-top of the list. It's a small win ... alas, no million dollars from Pillsbury to pay off my credit cards and car repair loan. But -- as my fellow cooking contesters and I are fond of saying -- "a win is a win." The competition was tough, with some gorgeous and amazing dishes! Rising to the cream of this crop was quite an accomplishment.

I am a proud and happy chickie on a sunny Friday evening ... :)

Oh I get it, ha! ha! ha! a "Food Floozie"...I love it. Congratulations on your win - it seems you deserve it since not too many people are into African recipes. Anyway I'm here from Java's blog hop and your newest follower. I'm glad found this blog because I'm a foodie myself.

Hope you'll come visit my blog and follow me too. There's strength in numbers. Thanks!

Congratulations on winning! How exciting. I have to agree with you, I don't think that one could ever have too many cookbooks. I hope that you find a ton of tasty recipes in your new cookbook.
