The first Project Food Blog Challenge is to define yourself as a blogger and discuss why I deserve to be the next food blog star.
|Canada in the winter :)|
Slam Poet, Shane Koyczan, has many great lines in his “We Are More” poem which tries to define Canada, and in many ways Canadians (you may have heard it during the 2010 Olympics opening ceremony). My favorite is that Canada is “an idea in the process of being realized...an experiment going right for a change.” And that is exactly how I would define this little Canadian blog. It is an idea in the process of being realized. My idea. My realization. One that took courage to start – what if no one read it? What if no one liked my recipes or my photography or my stories? Eventually I realized it didn’t matter what others thought (though of course I want readers to like it). What matters is that I like it and that I am proud of what I put on this blog. And I am.

I believe when food is made with love and enthusiasm and then shared with those close to you that love can be tasted and savoured in every bite. I hope this blog conveys the love I have for food and for those in my life with whom I share my kitchen.... and that includes all of you.
I am Canadian.
I am a blogger.
Whispering so as not to offend or hurt the feelings of any great bloggers out there....I am ... yes, I really am, worthy of the title “Next Blog Star”. I hope you agree and take the time to vote for me once voting starts nex week...please, thank you and sorry to have taken up so much of your time.
And in case you are wondering how to define Canada listen to this:
“We are More” by Slam Poet Shane Koyczan. It is truly brilliant.
