The Mobbies -- the fourth serving of Foodie nominees

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

Here is the fourth group of those nominees - we' re taking them 5 at a time, in alphabetical order. The first three 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:

Crabs, Crabs, Crabs - "Exploring Maryland's obsession with crabs." Recent posts have featured crab-flavored toothpaste and a an essay about "crab cake bling" and Tony Danza.

Dining Dish -- The winner of the inaugural Mobbie in this category, Dining Dish  is Dara Bunjon's take on anything food both national and in her hometown of Baltimore. Recent posts have discussed holiday potluck dinners and the grape harvest in Monforte D'Alba.

Eat. Swim. Shop. -- Jen's "tales of rhinestones, repeats, and rainbow sprinkles." Recent baking posts have been on orange chocolate chip Halloween cupcakes and upside-down apple corn muffins.

Food and Wine Blog -- Michael Mohammadi "provides wine reviews, wine region overviews, and articles on topics ranging from wine and health to wine politics. Another major focus of the site is fine dining, both at home using simple recipes or in the best restaurants in Baltimore and around the world.

Grow It! Eat It!  --  A group blog sponsored by the University of Maryland College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, recent posts here have been on chickweed ("kill it or eat it?") and ornamental sweet potato fries.

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.
