Orangette is a finalist in the 2005 Food Blog Awards!

If we've met, you've probably seen for yourself: I blush easily; I blush often; and when I blush, I blush hard. Rosy cheeks, rosacea, red wine: whatever the cause, it’s my default setting. In fact, when I fill out surveys and questionnaires, I’m often tempted to state my ethnicity as “Other: Pink.” But today, I have good reason for blushing, and with reckless abandon. Orangette has been selected as a finalist in the 2005 Food Blog Awards!

This year has seen the world of food blogs grow exponentially. I am continually in awe of the sites I stumble upon, new and old, and am honored to find myself in such good company. So I am tickled pink, quite literally, to be among the handful of finalists for our genre’s highest—and, well, only—honors. Orangette is nominated in two categories: “Best Food Blog - Reader’s Choice” and “Best Food Blog - Writing.” Voting is easy: just click here. The polls will be open until midnight (Pacific Standard Time) on January 18.

Many thanks to you, dear readers, for your faithful enthusiasm, your generous support, and most of all, your hearty appetite. Orangette would be a sad, skinny little thing if you weren't here to join us at the table.

I've just cast my 2 votes for 1 "Pink" Orangette! :-) Your blog is one of my favorites -- you integrate a sense of history, knowledge of the culinary arena, love for food, delightful wit and some darned good recipes. What more could one ask from a food blog? Keep on keepin' on!

Ciao, Dee

Brava, my dear. All of it deserved. Bien sur.

And as a fellow blusher, I must say: I think it's endearing! At least people know when we're happy and paying attention to the world. And you do both well.

Hi Orangette!

I'm a writing student from Australia and was delighted to vote for you in the awards!

I am addicted to food blogs but find that many require the foodporn in order to be fun to read.

Your writing alone makes this site a pleasure to peruse. One of the few who could get away with no pictures simply on the strength of your words =)

Congratulations and good luck.

As only one among your many fans, I say no-one could be more deserving -- for your glorious photos, enticing layout, luscious recipes -- but most of all, your delectable prose. You go, blushing Molly-girl!

Gooooooodness! I thought I had a good reason for blushing before, but now - hot damn!

Really, you know, the most fun and gratifying part of this whole awards business is having a good excuse to hear from you, dear readers and friends. Orangette has brought so many new names and faces into the modest orbit of my daily life, and I love every minute of it. Some of you I've had the pleasure of meeting; some I feel as though I must have met, so many times have our paths and words crossed; and some I am only meeting now, in these comments - and all I am boundlessly grateful for. Thank you, thank you. xo

Hi, Molly,

You completely deserve the honor, but blushing is involuntary.

Would you come back to the food bloggers global map and put in a pin with your motto? Because your nice note to me made ME blush...and I'd rather you toot your own shiny horn than thank me.
