NEW! FoodieCrush Magazine Summer 2013 Issue

by heidi on July 15, 2013

FoodieCrush Cover Summer 2013

“Summer means watching cartoons all morning, roaming the neighborhood all day and heading home when the streetlights turn on.”

I don’t remember where I read or heard this quote, but it’s stuck with me. It doesn’t apply to me so much anymore, but it reminds me to encourage my Smudge to create her own summer memories. Memories that will get her through the far-to-soon-approaching school year ala 4th grade.

Putting together the ideas for this issue of FoodieCrush, I had a couple of flashbacks of what summer was for me as a kid. If I really let my mind wander, I could daydream all day about finding 4 leaf clovers in the grass, but they primarily center around, swimming (always swimming), my favorite sand color corduroy OP shorts, dipping my bare feet in the gutter water and racing across the black topped street, Caladryl covered mosquito bites, and riding my red, white and blue banana seat bike Sears Spirit with abandon as my hair caught in my mouth and the tassles on my handlebars whipped in the wind.

Of course as I got older the banana seat bike was kicked to the curb once I discovered one word. B-O-Y-S. Let’s just say I’m going to cherish 4th grade for my girl as much as fervently as possible.

In this issue I put the kibosh on any stories that might contain even a mere nod to mosquitos but I knew you’d be craving some serious food blogger love. So here you’ll find everything from teenage food blogger dreams to crazy fair food you can make at home, to of course, homemade popsicles sure to create some sweet dreams. Natch.

As always, thank you for visiting this little old space on the web and supporting me and the food bloggers who contributed to this issue and those featured on this blog.

The links within the magazine are all clickable and linked, making it easy enough for you to jump over and check out more of these great talents and their recipes. And please share with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or whatever your modus operandi might be, there’s too much foodie talent to keep just to ourselves.

A special thanks to my former intern Jessica Baker who photographed this issue’s cover photo and the story it accompanies.

I LOVE this issue, Heidi!! You truly captured the summer fun in it! Hard to say which part is my favorite. Love the interview with Deborah and the teen bloggers article – these kids are amazing!!
And I will be craving all the frozen treats for days. :)

What a gorgeous issue! I absolutely love the ‘Beautifully Infused’ article! I can’t wait to make the cornbread. Well done!

I can attest. The cornbread is divine.

I love all of this issue, but I especially love the part about Big Summer Potluck. The quote about them making everyone feel welcome is so true. I honestly can’t think of a time I’ve felt more embraced by complete strangers. Maggy, Ericka and Pam are truly amazing ladies, and I feel so lucky to know them.

So glad you enjoyed that feature, the three of them are the real deal and their authenticity has a trickledown effect we all reap the benefits of. Thanks for the comment.

What a great summer issue! Enjoyed the wonderful feature on “The Big Summer Potluck”. I went last year (yes, I recognized the photos!) and will go again this year. Pam, Maggy and Erica work so hard to make it a fantastic event for food bloggers. Are you coming to BSP4? Would love to meet in person sometime soon. Thanks for sharing another enjoyable ‘Foodiecrush’ ! Happy Summer :-)

This was so beautifully artistically creatively done. I will go back and reread it over and over again. You included my most favorite teenage blogger- Top With Cinnamon. Crazy talented people inside your covers. Thank you for a peek inside the Big Potluck. I’m not a blogger so I really love to read about how your create and share with one another. Thank you!

Beautiful issue except for one thing. I emailed you privately that I was so thrilled to see you weren’t buying into the Blogger Diva scene and what do I see? Someone who can’t create a recipe on her own and has to steal all her recipes from other sources. I realize you were covering a larger event but I have my fingers crossed that I won’t see her on your pages again. Otherwise, your work is amazing and I really, really look forward to each issue.

As usual, Foodiecrush is a feast for the eyes and the tastebuds. Where do I even start? The story on Deb and her family is such a fun celebration of summertime traditions. The Big Traveling Potluck feature captures the event and the personalities of Maggy, Pam and Erika beautifully (and I was so happy to see the recipe for that amazing breakfast pizza). I will be going back to the story on Kelley and Annalise’s infused oils over and over again for recipe inspiration. Well done, my friend!

Hey! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but
after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
Anyhow, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!

Now let me clarify that this is not a product
that will prevent illness or cure a disease. And this self loathing often gets worse and worse because
it is one of the few things in life that most men think they can do nothing
about. The specific combination of ingredients that
each product contains will be adequate for the treatment of a particular condition.
