So I never achieved my goal of winning a gold medal at the Olympics for gymnastics, but this latest news might just beat that! Earlier this week the Jenkins Group officially announced the winners of the seventh annual Living Now Book Awards which are presented each year to honor "books for better living." Jenkins Group is a book packaging and marketing firm dedicated to promoting books that enrich readers' lives in wholesome, Earth-friendly ways. Apparently they agree with me that enriches lives in wholesome ways because it just won the 1st place gold medal in the cookbook category!! You can view the medalists across all 35 categories here.
This was the first book award contest I have entered, and I am so thrilled for Bowls of Love to be recognized. I am gearing up for soup season with a lot of events scheduled at local farmer's markets, Whole Foods, book stores, etc., and I am looking forward to another Fall and Winter sharing love through healthy cooking!
