Welcome to austinagrodolce … My family and I garden with more intention and enthusiasm than allocated budget or overall design plan. It shows. Wildlife populations don't seem to notice our lack of cohesive design, they just like the native plants here. It seems by growing local we've thrown out a welcome mat. Occasionally, we're surprised at who (and what) shows up.

While we are on the topic
No, I didn't make the cut, wasn't even nominated truth be told, but once I saw who was on the list all became clear. These bloggers are the cream of the crop. These are the blogs you'd want to read on a desert island (providing you had full access to your computer there and maybe a great desert/farmer's market....).
One of the categories was Best Food Photography, and the winner there, Smitten Kitchen, also snagged a Best Individual Post win for her take in January 2007 on Hibernation Fare.
I read Smitten Kitchen regularly and would agree the photography and writing are both inspiring, though she will go to an awful lot more trouble than I will to create, or in some cases, recreate a dish. The few dishes of hers I do attempt are always wonderful and even the majority of time spent just reading her posts is thoroughly enjoyable.
Another long time favorite blog/blogger, Homesick Texan scored a win for "Regional Cuisine". Represent, y'all!
The full list of winners is right here. Enjoy!
