Central District’s own Jessie Oleson (better known as Cakespy) has been nominated by Saveur Magazine for publishing the Best Baking and Desserts blog and Best Individual Post. Jessie is an illustrator and writer. Jessie and her husband Danny live in the neighborhood with their pug Porkchop and their two guinea pigs Falafael and Hot Pocket. They read CD News regularly and have both commented on the blog. Jessie is a big fan of our sponsor Immortal Dog Pet Supply & Bakery. You can help Jessie win these awards by voting in the Saveur contests.
Other Seattle-area Seattle nominees include Michael Natkin of Herbivoracious for Best Special Interest Blog. You should vote for his great blog as well. Vote between March 1st and April 2nd. Winners will be announced on April 5th.
Update (3/2): looks like another Seattle-area nominee Small Potatoes (based somewhere in Kitsap) has also been nominated for Best Regional Cuisine blog
Hey, thanks for noticing that Herbivoracious was nominated and passing it on! I’d really appreciate the votes. It does require registration on the Saveur site but it just takes a second. And congrats to Jessie as well. Cakespy is well deserving. Seattle representing!
