I am behind on everything so want to start by thanking Cristi at Simple.Interesting for nominating me for the Super Sweet Blogger Award.
Part of the procedure is to answer 5 sweet questions.
1.Cookies or cake?
Cookies, every time, but not often.
2.Chocolate or vanilla?
I went without chocolate for twenty years, always chocolate.
3.What is your favorite treat soft?
Argh, tapioca – hold your applause.
4.When do you want the most sweet things?
When I’m pregnant, which fortunately was a while back or I’d still look it.
5.If you had a mild nickname, what would it be?
Mutley, it’s the hair.
I have been included by Viveka of My Guilty Pleasures in her list of nominees for Blog of the Year 2012. It has been most fun to share my journeys and perils with you, many who’ve I’ve come to consider friends rather than blogging acquaintances, and explore the good, bad, and ugly of what could be summed up in a thimbleful as my cooking experiences. Being in the kitchen is as cathartic for me as writing. Pairing the two came naturally like serving a fine cheese with an excellent wine, or box wine and a stick of string cheese wherever I fit in the picture.
During this experience I have had the privilege of reading so many blogs along the way all offering something special and some repeatedly shining brightly. These are the people I visit often, and enjoy on each stop. I will offer them as my nominees and although many of you have already visited, I encourage you to do so again as they always have something special to offer.
For “The Blog of the Year Award 2012” we collect stars. For every nomination we are awarded we achieve another star, with the allowable amount achieved no more than 6.
The rules are as follows:
1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award
2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.
3 Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award – and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)
4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them
5 You can now also join our Facebook page – click the link here ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Award and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience
6 As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…
These are the bloggers, and I’m combining the two awards and extending them to all on the list as they are all stars as well as super sweet bloggers. Choose your award from the two or take both as you’re deserving. Thanks for making this experience most special.
