Normally we don’t post twice in a day, but there’s been a lot of exciting commotion in the last couple of hours, so we just had to interrupt today’s normal programming for this announcement! When Foodbuzz announced the possibility of sponsor-donated scholarships for the November festival in San Francisco, we jumped at the chance to enter recipe submissions based on their respective products. One of the sponsors was Bertolli, and we figured we could come up with something awesome for the Bertolli Sauce team. Our submission was one of those go-with-the-flow creations where we brainstormed a lot of ingredients we like individually and tried to see how they would work in combination. The final announcements were made today, and we made it into the Top Ten! We’ll be On the Menu for the Foodbuzz Blogger Festival. There are no words for how excited and grateful we are right now! No words! We pulled together a few of the words we have left just for this post.
Baby Portobello Stuffed Mushrooms is the way we went with our appetizer. We figured sautéed zucchini, spicy Italian sausage and Pecorino Romano would pair well with a meaty baby bello. Over the mushrooms, we’d top it with a drizzle of jazzed up Bertolli Garlic Alfredo with Aged-Parmesan Cream Sauce. We’ve been asking for votes for the Foodbuzz Blog Awards, but now we need more votes for this one. We want to be in the Bertolli Sauce Top 3! Voting for the Top 3 begins tomorrow, so please vote, vote, vote!!!
