Hughes_1stpass
I am so honored and so pleased to announce that my essay, Does a recipe need to be complicated to be good, was selected for BEST FOOD WRITING 2010.  It really says something when a blog post is worthy of being included in a such an esteemed collection! 

I got a copy of the book in my hands.  I am going to be honest at the risk of sounding really cheesy. I held it close and yes, I cried. This is my third time in this series and it feels like the first time. As I flip through the pages, I see I bylines  - Todd Kliman, Tim Carman, Jane Black, David Leite, Kim Severson… all the writers whom I so admire. I feel very blessed and, honestly, like bit like a little kid who was just given the keys to the candy store. I cannot wait to read this amazing collection. Holly Hughes does it again!

Order your copy here –at Amazon or here at Barnes and Noble.

    Congratulations, Monica. It’s clear you are thrilled and I’m thrilled for you. I think a key to your success is something you wrote in your post. “I got a copy of the book in my hands. I am going to be honest at the risk of sounding really cheesy. I held it close and yes, I cried. This is my third time in this series and it feels like the first time.” Nothing cheesy here, just the honesty and openness we’ve come to expect from you. You’re still paying careful attention to what you write and emotionally investing “you” in your work. It shows and others appreciate that we’re seeing not just words, but the person behind those words. When you’ve been included in this book for the tenth time, it will still feel like the first time and you’ll still cry – because you’ll still be sharing “you” with your readers – and thank you for that.

  6. Thanks sooo much!

  7. Congratulations, Monica! Well deserved.
