Award And Paying It Forward

Thank you!

You know what, these awards may not be James Beard awards but because they are awarded by fellow bloggers, culinary birds of a feather, at least to me it means a lot. What does it mean, well, someone reads or browses or notices my little blog, for that I am so grateful. it also means that someone may like what I am doing and that makes me feel good. So I want to thank Julia, from In a Small Kitchen whose lovely blog always inspires me and awarding to me the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

I have to admit I am not always good at following up on things and in the past others have given me these awards, I am thankful, but unfortunately forgot to post it and for that I am sorry. Sometimes things happen, I get busy and things slip my mind, that doesn’t mean I am not grateful just forgetful.

So here are 15 bloggers I admire and am in turn awarding this to, but really there are much more than 15. More than likely most of you have received this before but thats ok, just know that you are followed, appreciated and read.

The Solitary Cook

Dabblings and Whimsey

Vina’s Delicious Recipes

Glutten Free Happy Tummy

Healthy Green Kitchen

Two Dogs In The Kitchen

Lapadia’s Kitchen

In Pat’s Kitchen

The Nerdy Baker

So it’s more than 15, I admire so many I couldn’t stop!!

Here are 7 things about me that you may not know (or maybe you do):

1. I work in Real Estate, primarily Historic homes in Brooklyn, NY

2. I am an animal lover and advocate for animals

3. I am hopelessly disorganzied at times

4. Love to cook but because I live alone I don’t cook that often for myself (I do cook every day for my dogs though).

5. I travelled extensively in Europe and Africa, living in several different European countries

6. I hate unloading the dishwasher, but like loading it (Weird right?)

7. I LOVE horror films my absolute favorite genre!

NOTE: The bloggers named above are not required to re-award unless you want to, have the time and feel compelled.

    • Thank you so much, when I first started this blog it was like jumping into what I thought would be icy water. I learned over time that the water was pretty warm. I found a community of fellow bloggers and food lovers that have become my friends and I am so grateful for that. Thank you!

  4. First congrats to you! And secondly, thank you very much! I loved your list we have quite a few in common. Number 2 most definitely. Number 5 I’m just envious 🙂 Number 6, if you’re weird, than so I am…I feel the same way. In fact this is day two that the dishes have sat in there clean…lol! And lastly, my favorite movies are horror movies too! I love this time of year, I’ve been trying to catch one every night.

    • Oh me too, I have my choice of so many different horror films, most I have seen over and over but I don’t care I will watch them again. Just unloaded the dw, ugh, now to load it again.

    • I just noticed I missed some posts on your blog, I love the fig jam, I have to figure out why I am not getting email notifications. You have some wonderful recipes and I don’t want to miss them. Thank you so much.

    Congratulations my dear friend! You are wonderful! It is ironic how much many of us have in common. I love historic houses, love animals, have always been an advocate for young adults, love to cook, and love the horror / scary movies!

    Thank you very much for thinking of me; I truly appreciate it!

    October 18, 2012
    • Thank you so much, It is so funny how much so many of us have in common, the common thread is our love of food and finding out other tidbits about each other really offers insights into our similarities. It’s great getting to know you and other great cooks that I admire.

  9. Thank you for your constant readership/support and great comments of and on my blog. It’s greatly appreciated.

    My newest favorite feature of these awards is it gives me a great list of blogs to check out that I may not have heard of or found on my own.

    October 19, 2012
    • I love that too, I always enjoy browsing blogs I haven’t visited before. Thank you again!

    Thanks so much for thinking of me suzanne. I so appreciate it as well as your terrific blog!

    October 19, 2012
    • Thanks so much Pat, I so enjoy your posts and including you was a MUST!!

      October 19, 2012
  11. Aaaaawwww. Thanks so much Suzanne. I feel the same way about your blog, and so many bloggers. I’m sure it was hard to narrow it down to 15! I love learning a little more about you too. I’m definitely with you on #2 and #3; and while I love to cook, I don’t live alone – although I did for most of my life really. And we could live together really well since I love to UNload the dishwasher, but hate to load it 🙂

    October 19, 2012
    • Ha, then we would make a great team, thanks so much. I really love this community of friends that I have been lucky enough to meet.

      October 19, 2012
  12. Congratulations! I love reading the chronicles that happen in your kitchen. Oh I’m so opposite of you in the movies genre aspect, I stay away from horror movies as best as I can! :p Can’t wait to travel to Africa in the future, must have been an amazing trip of a lifetime. Thank you so much for passing the award to me, I’m honoured! 🙂

    • Thank you and I love reading your blog, your instructions are so clear and your photo’s beautiful. Can’t forget the delicious recipes. I grew up watching horror films, It was a family thing me and my Dad every weekend from as young as 4 yrs old, so many don’t like them, I’m hooked.
      I travelled in Northern Africa and it is amazing.

      October 21, 2012
      • Aww thank you so much, I hope I’ll be able to post better photos and more recipes in the future! Wow you’ve watched horror movies since 4? That’s really amazing! I think I would have been traumatized for life… :p

        October 21, 2012
      • LOL!! I remember hiding my head when I first saw the original Frankenstein, he scared the bejezus out of me. Some movies I still cannot watch but most are just silly and don’t bother me. Thanks again and look forward to more and more posts from you.

        October 21, 2012
      • You’re so brave! Can I get some courage from you?? Haha. Thank you again for the award! Take care!
