Ask any food blogger what the best part of food blogging is, and they'll inevitably tell you about the new friends they've made as a result. Like-minded friends that understand how it's important to capture the perfect picture of a meal before digging in. Friends that can talk about the critical differences between ten kinds of salt. And friends that have at least four recipes for the most perfect chocolate chip cookies. Food blogging has certainly introduced me to those very friends and that's why I was super excited to be partnered with Jean of Lemons and Anchovies for this month's Blogger CLUE challenge (picnic food)!
You see, Jean is not only a food blogging friend that lives in my computer. We're friends that have visited each other's homes, gotten together for holiday cookie swaps, and heck, even made jam together all because we both loved to eat and write about food. Over the years, I've looked forward to Jean's fresh and innovative recipes and her gorgeous photography. She and her husband Dana are avid travelers and foodies, and when I'm stuck at my desk, I live vicariously through her lovely vacation (food) pictures. I knew there were tons of recipes perfect for picnics on her blog. The challenge would be picking one because I love love love picnics!
