I’ve sat in front of my computer for the last week trying to figure out how to write an acceptance speech as this is the first for me. I’ve won a scholarship, and a few other awards when I was in school some years back, but I never had to give a speech before. I do want to thank James for nominating me, its humbling to be acknowledge among ones peers. That is how I see all of you, as my fellow peers and not followers. We are all different, in many ways and very supportive. This has been an experience for me, when I started out I’d post a basic recipe and now I can see a huge difference in my posts. Those little changes made a huge difference, and I learned those from all of you. My best moment has been right here growing and its been awesome and you are all who I need to thank too.
Winners For me personally, I regard the best moments as the ones shared with other people! Live in the Moment and remember –
Were not promised tomorrow, so live for today, laugh as much as you can, love with all your heart, and Eat!!!!!
It is my pleasure to present this award to a group of talented and amazing friends who live in the Moment, congratulations to you all!
Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill.
Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers.
After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us.
Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.
