You’ve heard of Food Network’s The Next Food Network Star, but I’m entering Foodbuzz’s Project Food Blog challenge. From now until December, 2000 bloggers will be narrowed down to one winner based on a series of blog entries on varying topics. I need your help to keep me in the contest! You can see my profile link on the right sidebar, or here . Voting starts on Monday.
The first challenge is called “Ready, Set, Blog!” and I am telling my readers and voters about my blog and why I’m different than the others. One of my secret talents is writing silly poems, so I’ve made part of my entry a rhyme.

Before I was a blogger, I was a blog reader, and my favorite blogs were the ones where I learned something. After a few months of trying new things I learned, I wanted to tell people too. I was looking for healthy alternatives to favorite foods, especially in baking. Anyone can find a recipe for double chocolate chip cookies, but not everyone can make them healthy and tasty. I became a more skilled and diverse cook and I began creating recipes and menus of my own. On this blog, you will see everyday ingredients used in flavorful and colorful ways. I’m not about hard-to-pronounce and exotic foods that you only use once, but I am willing to try new foods that I can add to a variety of dishes. Zucchini for breakfast, anyone?
The next food blog star has to be relatable. I make 5-minute lunches and weeknight dinners in a snap. I prep meals on the weekends to use later and make good use of my freezer. And I try new foods and recipes when something sounds great. I break down recipes in easy-to-follow instructions with quality pictures to go with them. My website’s tabs were created with a reader in mind so it’s easy to navigate. And don’t forget about diversity–another thing that sets me apart from others is that most of my meals are adaptable! I eat in a different style than some readers or my husband, so the dinners I make can be served in different ways.
I hope you’ll click to vote on Monday and follow along with Project Food Blog!
