I’m off to New York City this week for Book Expo America. In case you thought that this blog was my full time job (I wish!), it’s not. I actually work for a book publishing company, Publish On Demand Global, as their Communications Director. My work mainly consists of social media marketing and promotion, writing press releases, and creating content for our company blogs. Our company’s main focus is to help authors and publishers enter international markets through foreign rights and global distribution. So this week, we are set up in the International Rights Center at Book Expo America at the Javits Center. It’s been way too long since my last trip to NYC and I am thrilled to be back!
But I’m not leaving you guys high and dry! You get to meet some of my favorite new people — the wonderfully talented bloggers I spent time with last weekend at BlogHer Food. I’m excited to have them here as guest bloggers on Take A Bite Out of Boca!
Meet Katie from The Hill Country Cook. Katie and I got to know each other as we drove down to Miami together last weekend. I picked her up at the airport on a whim, having never met her before and responding to her on Facebook. That just goes to show the comradery there is between us food bloggers. We automatically feel like we already know each other before ever meeting in person…
Hey y’all! I’m Katie, a small town Texas girl, AKA The Hill Country Cook. I live in Central Texas, near Austin, which is known as the Hill Country. This area is lush with rolling green hills, and right now – bluebonnets – they’re everywhere! I met Shaina a few weeks ago in Miami, as we both attended BlogHer Food. The great thing about the food blogging community is our camaraderie. After seeing her Facebook post, I took Shaina up on her offer to pick anyone up from the airport on her way to Miami; we talked the whole way to the hotel (all about food of course)! I am so glad to have met this shining face, and appreciated all her Florida knowledge. I jumped at the chance to do a guest post for her blog, and I’ll be making my way to visit Boca in the near future – I can promise you that.

The last time I had baklava it was SO buttery that it was practically inedible. It was kind of gross and made me never want the dessert again. This, however, sounds and looks a million times better and just made me crave it again. Yay! Thank you for restoring my faith in Baklava, Katie!
