Here's my entry for the Let's Have a Picnic challenge :) Where I spend most of my summer, we take every opportunity to have a beach picnic. Lots of kids, laughter, a cool dip, whatever is in season at the nearby farms, bubbly and beer, cheese of course, and if we're lucky, the most gorgeous sunset.
Boston, Massachusetts, US
We all enjoy a good picnic...unfortunately so do the sneaky seagulls! More than once over the years they've swooped in to snatch a bag of chips or even a sandwich. These days I may have upgraded to wine and cheese, but I still remain vigilant for these persistent pinchers of picnic provisions!

Today, we'd like to congratulate Daniela Garreton, an artist from Santiago, Chile for being our 1st place winner! Daniela will receive $1,000 from They Draw and Cook for her wonderfully sweet Pan de Pascua illustration. The judges thought Daniela's recipe was beautiful - the warmth of her colors, her watercolored typography, her perfectly simple linework and the sweetness of her little family of birds were all just too irresistible. They also loved the fact that while this may be a popular and traditional holiday recipe in Chile, it's a new and fresh idea for many of us. Congratulations Daniela and thanks for sharing this little piece of holiday goodness with everyone!This wraps up our month-long feast of illustrated festive foodie fabulousness! We hope you enjoyed seeing this blast of over 250 holiday recipes.Thanks so much to our friends at The FN Dish for allowing us to showcase the work of so many talented artists on their site as well. And an extra-special thank you goes out to all the artists who contributed to this awesome series of holiday recipe illustrations - you are all amazing.Cheers and Happy New Year from Nate Padavick and Salli Swindell!
