I’ve been nominated for a Saveur Food Blog Award!

You may have noticed a new sidebar to the right. I found out late last week, right when I was returning from New York, that I made it as a finalist in Saveur Magazine’s Best Food Blog Awards.

Out of 40,000 entries, the editors chose my little blog as one of the top blogs in Culinary Travel, along with five others.

This is a huge deal for me. Saveur is one of the top food magazines in the country and I buy it every time I’m in the States. There aren’t many outlets left publishing the kind of work they do: personal, emotion-driven food stories, which have nothing to do with hot new trends.

Will you vote for me? You do have to register your email address, and you can only vote once.
Voting is open through April 26.

Even if you don’t have time to vote, or you feel weird giving out your email address, I want you to know that I appreciate you reading and commenting. (Or, in some cases, not commenting, which is okay too. Being a lurker is perfectly fine.) You guys make this a better place.

      Thanks for your input and your vote, Tita! I’m hoping to do another small-town post in May.

      Yes Yvette, double congratulations to you. That’s an amazing feat. I’ll be voting for you in both categories. :-)

    You must be ecstatic to have this recognition. I was captured by the name of your blog, because “Mija” is so familiar to me…I am not fluent, but words, phrases, the food is undeniable. I have subscribed to your blog and have seen the food, people and events through your eyes. I forward your articles to my “mijas” and “mijo” who are foodies all. Felicidades! Absolutely, going to vote for you!

    OMG Lesley! C o n g r a t u l a t i o n s. I just voted for you. You must feel very proud of yourself. These are the two things that I love: reading about Mexico through your eyes and having met you at the Mexican cooking school! Now we can say we were compañeros de metate ¿O no? (I still have this lump in my right hand from having used the metlapil).
