Best Food Blog Award and more

Ladies and gentlemen: We won the best food award! We could not have done it without YOUR support along with the St. Andrew Old Girl's Assoc. We are humbled. The best is yet to come. Keep connecting with us here. If new we hastily offer a warm welcome and invite you to subscribe to our blog :-) 

Winners with Miss Jamaica World.

The JamaicaBlogAwards was created by 23-year old Corve DaCosta. Let me tell you attracting 276 blogs in Jamaica coupled with landing NCB, LIME and Jamaica Pegasus as sponsors was an amazing feat. The awards has made an indelible mark and has brought awareness to lesser known micro-businesses such as ours. We take this opportunity to say "thank you" to Corve and his team for a good first showing. Heartiest congratulations to all nominees. We are all winners!


Blogging isn't always easy. It requires discipline to do consistent and timely posts for which we pale in comparison to Ingrid Riley's Silicon Caribe - winner of the best Technology blog and Blogger of the Year awards. The good news is: We will be stepping up our game and will be aiming to frequent Nell's Cafe (Grosvenor Terrace) for wi-fi connection, lunch, celebratory drinks (like the iced sorrel beverage shown below), poetry nights or just because the customer service is superb!

In 2010, we connected with like-minded entrepreneurs, clients and generally sweet people via social media networking tools. Here are some successes: -

What to expect of us in 2011? 

  1. Look out for our Megalicious Plantain tarts, Coconut macaroon cookies, twisted whole wheat bread and baked goodies at CariHome Supermarket, Upper Manor Park Plaza, Kingston 8.

  2. We will continue to have an Upcoming Events list in our blog posts.

  3. Recommended grocery items, tips and or our usual Food Trivia

  4. Revamping our blog by converting to WordPress.com 

  5. More food, more food and more food :-)

    Although we are small, corporate social responsibility is important. We have therefore thrown our support behind the JMDaily Heroes calendar and video project that seeks to highlight the positives about Jamaica and her public servants starting with the Jamaican fire fighters and the Police. Calendars are NOW AVAILABLE.  

    Chris Barrett (Global Courier Servs) w/ Francois St Juste (FAME-FM) & Dean Fraser (Awesome Saxophonist) 

    Contribution: Only J$500 (in Jamaica) and US$9.95 (outside Jamaica). Part proceeds are in aid of a slain cop's 10 year old son and the Fire fighters homework program for kids in Rollington Town & Trench Town. They would like to replicate in more communities. Every calendar purchase helps!
