Three...two....one...

For those of you who missed the first installment extolling the category winners for March's Does My Blog Look Good in This contest, go ahead, scroll down, check them out, we'll wait...

There, now that we've celebrated the best of breed and the first in group, it's time to move on to the best in show competition.

In Third Place...

A DMBLGiT fan favorite: Mae of Rice and Noodles and her Pistachio Panna Cotta with Fresh Raspberries, shot with a Cannon EOS 350D.

Judges loved the 'clean, crisp presentation' with 'just a spot of color.'

"This one SCREAMS 'pick up that spoon... eat me!' "...

"One of my favourites..."

"I'll take two...


In Second Place...


Not for the faint of heart this warm chocolate decadence in liquid form brought to us by Dora of Lila Fuge, the image snapped with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20.

"Simple, yet stunning..."

"Who needs words? I -know- this tastes great!"


and in First Place...

Mary of Alpineberry captures our hearts and our appetites with her whimsical Chocolate Brownie Hearts, shot with a Canon Powershot A95.

"Mmmmm... chocolate..."

"Edible? check. Aesthetic? check. Original? check. Winner? check. check. check."

"This... it goes to 11..."

So there you have them -- the best-dressed blogs of March 2007. Congratulations and thank you to each and every one of you who participated -- and a special thanks to my fearless judging panel. It's been an honor and a privilege to host this ode to food porn. I've gotten to know new blogs, made new friends in the folks that write them, and learned a ton about what turns a good photograph into something spectacular.

Stay tuned for the April edition, hosted by Lara of Cook and Eat...

Oh goodness! I can't believe I won. And to think I wasn't even going to write a post about that stupid heart shaped silicone pan. Thanks for hosting and thanks to all the fine judges.

So many choices and all three picks are wonderful. The judges surely have the photography equivalent of 'perfect pitch' plus an understanding of food. Congrats to Mary!
