I’m very excited to receive this honor. I want to thank Tyler at ./KitchenLab! for the nomination!  Tyler has a really neat blog about fermenting and other forms of food preservation.  I will definitely be spending more time on his blog as my courage to try fermenting grows!  And his photos are beautiful!
