Awards and Thanks!

With all this crazy traveling, I've fallen behind of updating a few things.  I feel like my blog (and my head) are full of cobwebs.  Now that I'm sorta kinda halfway caught up... I want to take a moment to thank my friends Nancy aka Spicie Foodie for passing along her awards to me and Shirley from Shirley's Luxury Haven for the Versatile Blogger award.

Both of these ladies are talented cooks, writers and have amazing blogs themselves.  I feel very honored to be included in your list of favorite bloggers. 

I've already listed 7 things about myself from a previous award but I'll follow the rules anyway...so here it goes.

1.  I never met a piece of chocolate that I didn't like.
2.  I have over 5000 original recipes in my computer and an entire shelf of binders full of original recipes on my book shelf which I hope to get organized and typed up some day.
3.  I have a short fuse when it comes to incompetence...which is why I stay out of Walmart!
4.  My philosophy on name brand items...you don't skimp on food or bed linens.
5.  My policy regarding my dog...I love her to pieces but she who licks her own butt...does NOT lick my face!
6.  When I want something done...I want it done YESTERDAY!
7.  I thank God for my wonderful, beautiful, accomplished daughters and I am extremely proud of them.

Here are my awards...thank you again ladies!


    My picks for sharing:

1.  Annie at Anniebakes  ...One of my favorite baking sites.  Lovely recipes and photos.

2.Lisa at http://authenticsuburbangourmet.blogspot.com/   Her recipes are inspired and she's a wonderful writer.  Beautiful photos as well.

3.  Sarah at http://bakingserendipity.blogspot.com/ ...another talented baker and always so upbeat and enjoyable posts.

4.  Amy at http://fragrantvanillacake.blogspot.com/  another talented baker.

5.  Mo at http://recipesbymo.blogspot.com/  ..so young and so talented...both as a cook and a writer.  Thanks to Lazaro for guiding me to her blog!

6.  The Mom Chef....I will look up the URL...for some reason I thought I had her on my "follow" list but am not finding it.  I will have to rectify this right away!

I have a couple more to add later but right now...I'm beat!  So it's off to la la land.  Thanks to all my foodie friends for reading, following and or putting up with my blog!

    I totally agree about the dog thing. I adore my grandparents' dog, Herman, to death; he's the sweetest little thing on the planet. BUT I always wash whatever body part he managed to lick when I see him, because I've seen what he licks when he's not licking other people... not pretty. :P
