Food bloggers are arguably the most passionate and authentic of bloggers. They have something grand to share – their hearts and souls thoughtfully embodied in a gorgeous recipe! YN is thrilled to serve as a second home for our ever-growing bunch of yum chroniclers: Lisa, who cares more about keeping the hearth afire than a perfectly decorated house… Jodi, an actress with a fanatical obsession for bacon or Laurie, who cuts right to the chase in her Promiscuous Palate blog: “I love food. Like zombies love brains. I eat until I’m sick, and an hour later, I want more. Every stinky non-pasteurized cheese. Every slice of house-cured charcuterie. Every fish & mollusk in the ocean. Every vegetable sprouting out of the dirt or mushroom clinging to a rotting tree stump. Oddly enough, I don’t eat brains.” For these creatives, there are no limits to yum. So we’re compelled to keep shouting their names from the rooftop. And this November, we’re going BIG! YN is super charged to produce a not-so-typical conference called FoodFightWrite in Las Vegas. At FFW, bloggers from around the country will learn lots, eat lots, connect lots and be fully embedded in the excitement of the World Food Championships – check out the show by the same name on the FYI network and you’ll see what I mean. What are you waiting for? Go get some yummie ideas! –Beth Peterson, Chief Yummie Officer

Why do I cook? Because an empty pan is a blank canvas. Because I can show my love, share my passion and create something out of nothing. It’s my way of adding flavor to my life and being salt to this world.
