October Blog Challenge: Our Food Stories

If you had a chance to check out the Texas Book Festival last weekend in Austin, you might have seen a few familiar faces.  Several Austin Food Blogger Alliance members were featured in the weekend lineup. The Austin Food Blogger Alliance Cookbook that started as a desire to share a legacy and memories of the family kitchen is now a reality thanks to Addie Broyles and her team of AFBA volunteers who put it all together.  Addie talked up the book and prepared her Gaga’s Coffeecake on Sunday at the festival. Why are we all here anyways?  A common thread shared between AFBA members is our love of food: sharing, preparing, growing and writing about food.  This month’s challenge was to share our stories, as we did in the cookbook and continue to do on our blogs every day!
