I started keeping this blog in February. Being a lifelong "diarist" I feel like I really found a great medium. It's a way for me to write about my life and times through food. Being a mom, a chocolatier, and an ardent Celebrationist, I spend a lot of time in the kitchen.
Upon venturing out into the great blogosphere, I encountered truly a brave new world, with so much talent and ability. It's almost overwhelming. My humble little blog is just that, it's a way for me to record my days and the dishes that ensue, basically it captures the flavor of my life. So when Alexa from http://www.artsy-foodie.blogspot.com/ awarded me with this, I was totally flattered and super-grateful.
Alexa is so talented in so many ways. Her food is always impeccable and adventurous and her photography is crystalline and beautiful. And that she checks out my blog is a huge compliment!
So without further ado- I will set about to pass along this award to other bloggers who I think are fab. Spreading the love- that's what it's all about, right?
http://www.applesandbutter.blogspot.com/ Man! She is prolific and tireless and uber-talented. Half the time I'm stopping myself from licking the monitor her food looks that good.
http://www.what-we-eat-blog.blogspot.com/ Lisa's posts are sheer pleasure to read. I love her experimentation. Love how much she loves chocolate. I love her recreation of recipes from old cookbooks. I love her pictures. Love it all.
http://www.evilchefmom.blogspot.com/ HILARIOUS! I am always entertained whenever I check out this blog, and the fact that her food is amazing- makes her a true force. Always a fun visit.
http://www.thesummertreecafe.blogspot.com/ Katie's creations are inspirational. From her posts you really get the picture of a well rounded person. She's like this at 14, I can only imagine how unstoppable she will be as she gets older.
http://www.bettylives.com/ Because I have a soft spot for mid twentieth century Americana, and because she recreates those recipes so well, and faithfully, and with a nice touch of humor.
