My prizes for completing the Second Annual Coffeeneuring Challenge came in the mail last week. Thank you so much Mary, for organizing a tough but very fun challenge and for sending out such nice prizes to all the people who successfully completed the challenge! I wasn’t expecting something so substantial – the coffee cup pin is made of pewter!
The pressure was on to take a nice photo because Andrea mentioned that my photo would be nicer than hers. So I dusted off my trusty DSLR to take this shot which ended up being exactly like Andrea’s. wops!
I wanted to share some food related publications that I’ve acquired recently. There is a bike connection with each of the ladies behind these publications which I’ll explain below!
Shana collected some of her best recipes that she published last year from her blog, Folks Gotta Eat, and made this cookbook. I originally met Shana through our love of our naughty beagles but 2 years ago she started riding a bike around town, joined me on a Cupcake Ride and even did the Try a Tri with me!
She’s one of the best chefs I know and being invited over to her place for a meal means your tastebuds will be spoiled. So naturally I follow her food blog and without hesitation try her recipes knowing that the end result will always be delicious.
I also really enjoy Shana’s blog and recipes because she is a big proponent of eating local and maybe it’s through her writing or maybe it’s through her photos but she always instills a bit of Toronto pride in me when I read her blog posts.
You can get your own copy of the Folks Gotta Eat- favourite summer recipes from our tiny kitchen:
• ebook version
• print version
The second publication I want share is called Food Will Never Break My Heart and it is a magazine created and published by two girls. I met one part the duo, Colleen, when we both worked on the Dandyhorse ‘Food’ issue.
Oh and look, there’s a cupcake on the cover.
This magazine is gorgeous too and filled with beautiful photos that are showcased in unique page layouts. And a food magazine wouldn’t be complete without recipes – and there are a lot of them, collected at the back of the magazine.
You can order your copy of Food Will Never Break My Heart (the comfort issue) through their Etsy site.
