Dear friends, I couldn't have done it without you.  You called, you wrote, you got out the vote -- and without needing Madonna or Lenny Kravitz to help you, either! -- and thus was it that Prepare to Meet Your Loudmouthed Showboater Bakerina placed second at the first annual Best of Blog Awards, amidst some very stiff competition indeed.  Congratulations and a round of applause to the lovely, kind and craftalicious Dawn at My Life With Garlic, who won the top honor, the blue ribbon, first prize (why do I feel the urge to burst into the Cole Porter songbook right now?); and to that cookin' mama at This Mama Cooks!, who placed third (but whose beautiful roasted vegetables will always be tops in my book). 

Astute friends will notice that I created a whole 'nother blogroll that includes all of the wondrous BoB Award finalists, as well as some other food sites that are definitely worth your time and attention.  Why not stop on by and say hi?  You'll be glad you did, and so will they.  (Be sure to say hello to Moira at Who Wants Seconds and Raspberry Sour at The Sour Patch; they are new bloggers who hit the ground running fast, and they did it with both style and substance.)

Thanks to everyone who voted, who nominated me (and with such kind words, too!), who cheered and razzed and egged me on.  As you may have ascertained by the embarrassingly slight number of posts, this has not exactly been the easiest of Januaries, but at the end of it -- yes, I know we're only talking about a week or so -- I can look back and say wow, that was fun.  Thank you, dear ones.
