Happy Thursday! Thank you all for participating in the SONY WX9 Giveaway Contest we did last week to celebrate the second birthday of this site. It was so nice to see original fans as well as some new names coming out to wish us a happy birthday and to share scrumptious stories of your favorite meals. MOTB appreciates you, and hope to be able to reward you in fun ways like this again soon. Now, on to our winner.

I used's random number generator to pick the number of the comment that would win (with #1 being the first and oldest comment and #62 being the last comment left yesterday). I didn't know who or what name belonged to each comment, so I counted through from bottom to top to find out. Seemed to be the fairest way to do it.

The winner was comment #33, Clay Hebert!

Clay has been a fan of the site since autumn of 2009, just a few months after we started doing our thing. He also happens to be a friend offline, and he's an amateur photographer and complete food nut just like many of you. I know he'll really enjoy and appreciate this sweet little camera.

Below is a photo I took with my WX9 when he and his girlfriend had me and my favorite person over for dinner a couple months ago (Clay made a wonderful oxtail stew).

I also said I'd choose two other winners who would win a great book. I chose my two favorite food stories from the comments for these winners. Second winner: Kathryn, for her description of a meal in Cinque Terre, Italy. Kathryn, you win a copy of The Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking by my friend Kate Payne. I've been loving my copy and am excited to have one to share. We love grandmas and we love people who can create great meals on a budget. So, our third winner is Sassykeewee, for her story about her grandmother's skirt steak and potatoes. "Sassy," you win a copy of Eat Right When Time is Tight. Congrats to Clay, Kathryn and Sassy and thank you again to everyone who took the time to comment, subscribe and share your stories of great food. Winners, please email your preferred mailing address to me at emily {at}

    YAY! Eat Right When Time is Tight truly right on time. I’m busy and  in a food preparation rut. 
    Congrats to Clay and Kathryn!

    YAY!  Totally coincidentally……33 is also my favorite number!
    I’ve really been needing a new point-and-shoot camera (something between my old Canon 20D and my iPhone 4) and I’m stoked to try the WX9!  Thanks Emily and Sony!

    Sweet! Now I can take the Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking off of my Amazon wishlist! Thanks so much, Emily. :)
