Philadelphia blogger up for magazine’s food blog award

    “Best Kitchen Tools and Hardware Coverage” doesn’t really roll of the tongue or conjure visions of a giant gold trophy.

    But it’s a real award and a local food blogger is in the running for it.

    Maria McClellan’s Food in Jars blog is all about canning. And it’s based in Philadelphia. Saveur Magazine is giving Food in Jars a nod, but it’s up to voters to grant final approval.

    The blog is one of six nominated for the “tools and hardware coverage” cateogry of the magazine’s second annual Best Food Blog Awards.

    You can vote for Food in Jars, and any other blog up for an award.
