Dish Up! - My Week 13 in Review

This is Dish Up! - My Week in Review, a weekly look at my food-obsessed life. It's been an eventful few weeks, with the highlight being that this blog was nominated for 'Best New Blog' in Saveur magazine's 5th annual 'Best Food Blog Awards'. I've been reading Saveur since I was a pimple-faced teen and was in total shock when I found out my blog was selected as a finalist. I'm humbled to be included among the other beautiful blogs in the category: Bottom of the Pot, Hortus Cuisine, My Blue and White Kitchen, and Two Red Bowls. If you would like to vote for this blog, here's how:

  • Go to Saveur's Best Food Blog Awards page.
  • Scroll down to the 'Best New Blog' category located toward the bottom of the page
  • Vote for Broad Appetite. You will need to register with the site, but it should only take a minute.

Thank you so much for your support. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming - pictures from this week.

Tommy ordered the 'Train Wreck' - buttermilk biscuits topped with house-made sausage, eggs, American cheese, and breakfast gravy. It was served with home fries and was $8.50. Everything was huge and hearty.

I love peering into kitchens. This particular kitchen belongs to the vegetarian restaurant, Ipanema Cafe.

I attended the Vegan Dish Crawl - think bar crawl, only with food instead of drinks. I made some new friends and ate some amazing vegan food. One of the spots on the crawl was Strange Matter where we ate vegan reubens.

We also had vegan Ethiopian wraps from Nile Restaurant. One wrap was filled with chickpeas, tomatoes, and organic greens, and the other contained curried lentils and collard greens.
