Notes from the Judges
A few select quotes from the judges on their picks:
Nothing in the House: A Pie Blog: A lot of talk about pies focuses on Grandma’s favorite recipe or a pie that won a blue ribbon at some county or state fair. It’s about the past. In her prettily photographed and smartly written Nothing in the House, Emily Hilliard gives us lots of brilliant ideas, both sweet and savory, like Chocolate Orange Pie with Mascarpone Cream and Buffalo Chicken Fried Pies, that nod to the past but prove that the pie category has lots of room to grow.
Eat The Love: I can't get enough! Featuring Irvin Lin's hilariously self-deprecating wit, drop-dead-gorgeous photographs, and decadent recipes, this blog never fails to stimulate my appetite and tickle my funny bone. I don't often indulge in sweet treats, but Eat The Love always feeds my cravings for brilliant writing and insanely great recipes.
