Hello? Is there anybody out there? We apologize for our absence! Lucy and I have been up to our necks in writing, painting, and testing recipes for the book (also, hanging out this past weekend in Chicago—presumably to get some “work” done, but really just mainlining Gilmore Girls episodes on Netflix), but as soon as we knock this manuscript out we will be back with new recipes and embarrassing personal anecdotes in a few weeks.*
While we get our acts together, might we suggest you check out the nominees for Saveur’s 2015 Blog Awards? They assembled this list of the best and the brightest, whittled down from an impressive 50,000 submissions this year. Come vote for your favorites and discover a few new food blogs to follow. Voting is open until April 30th. Oh, and we were judges for the first round!
Warning: Completely irrelevant GG rants below the jump. Feel free to weigh in on the debate if you are also a big nerd. :)
*”Yeah, right,” you say. You’re thinking we are unreliable, just like Rory’s dirtbag deadbeat dad Christopher, who keeps showing up in his “cool” leather jacket with empty promises and zero child support, but ultimately will end up breaking Rory and Lorelei’s hearts again and again. But really we’re more of a Luke,** a lovable curmudgeon who should never ever take his hat off because of his unfortunate hair situation, and who, even though he has his faults, just wants to see you happy. Can you tell Lucy and I have been engaged in an intense debate all week long over the age old question: Luke and Lorelei—OTP or Nah?
**ED NOTE FROM LUCY: Um, WE ARE NOT A LUKE, because we are not a dyspeptic, no-fun grouch who stalks around town bringing down everyone else’s mood simply because he’s too passive and self-loathing to go after his own happiness. If we were a Luke we would be very reliable and blog here every day, and every day you would be like, “oh my god, why do these pent-up little stormclouds insist on projecting their bad moods onto my life day after day?!”
