I’ve bragged about my local food blogging friends before, and I’m going to do it again. Deborah of Taste and Tell is one of the kindest, sincerest people you’ll ever meet and I’m so fortunate that blogging has brought us together.

Her blog focuses on family friendly meals and treats of all kinds, but she is perhaps best known for her obsession with everything red velvet. Every year she shares her newest creations during her own Red Velvet Week and she’s thought of it all, from doughnuts to ice cream cake to cookies.
