Five more Mobbie nominees for you to click on

mobbiesVoting in the Mobbies continues through Friday. The competition to determine Maryland's best bloggers includes a "Foodie" category with 39  nominees.

This is the fifth group of those nominees - we' re taking them 5 at a time, in alphabetical order. The first four posts are here.

The bloggers themselves are welcome to dilate upon their blogging philosophy and otherwise promote themselves.


For this series of posts I am only accepting positive (or neutral comments.) If there is an issue or concern you have about a particular blog you'd like to express, please email me at:

Hot Sauce Daily -- Ocean City's Brian Meagher blog is "dedicated to all things hot and spicy," but he bogs about "anything food wise." Recent posts have been on a Rippin Red Wings sauce demo and a snack review of Texas Firecrackers.

HowChow --" A guide to food in Howard County with the best dining in Columbia, Ellicott City, Elkridge, Fulton, etc. Search for Maryland gems below by cuisine, restaurant, market or location." Recent posts have been on shopping for a Thanksgiving turkey in Howard County and the possible closing of Maruha Japanese Steakhouse.

If You Give a Girl a Cookie -- The blogger, Brittany, recently renamed her cooking and baking blog - it had been called Fleur d'Elise. Recent post have been on pumpkin donuts with buttermilk glaze and rigatoni with leeks-and-sausage sauce.

Mango and Ginger -- Kit Pollard posts about "food, culture, design, whatever." Her most recent posts have been on the pork barbecue from Adam's Ribs and a weekend dinner at Clementine.

Microcosm K  -- Abingdon's Mr. Micro posts about cooking, eating, drinking, and gaming in his proudly uncensored blog. Recent posts have been documenting Mr. Micro's first-anniversary multi-city eating tour with his wife.

Grrrrrrrr..... snarl-snarl.... Terrier Girl here. What's up gang? Dining@Large is number two in the Blobbies behind some blog about balls or throwing balls or attending fancy balls. Come on, get on the Spirit Train and let's bump the Sunshine Kid up to Numero Uno! Yes we may! Can! I hear the prize this year is a Golden Calf. Ooo, that sounds nice.

Go Large!

Grrrr ... grrrr ... snarly-teeth, snarly-teeth ... WOO HOO. Dining@Large has moved up to NUMERO UNO! Yay for us. Where is my foam finger?

I printed little cards to give out to my friends in the last two days with the deets. Thank you so so much guys & gals from Mommy & Me, dog park, terrier roundup squad, and Friends of Bill W.

Come on sports fans, time to pay it back to the best blog in Bawlmer.

D@L is all the way at the bottom. Have a cup of coffee while the Tribune's hamster-driven server loads it for you.

Sports fans always win this sort of thing. Meatheads love any kind of competition. I think the people here are too "sophisticated" to get involved in such pedestrian stuff.

It would've been nice if someone let me know I was nominated for this... I just found out today after voting had already concluded. Way to go Baltimore Sun.

Richard Gorelick was appointed The Baltimore Sun's restaurant critic in September 2010. Before joining the paper staff fulltime, he contributed freelance criticism and features articles about food to area and regional publications. Along the way, he dispatched for short-distance trucking companies, shilled for cultural non-profits, and assisted in cognitive neurology research – never the subject, always the control.

He takes restaurants seriously but not himself, and his favorite restaurant is the one you love, too.
