Creative Blogger Award

So…I was nominated for an award. For my blogging.

I can’t believe it! After spending nearly three years in this little cooking corner of the world wide web, I have some sort of recognition. I can’t thank Kristy over at Palatable Adventures enough for this honor. She has amazing blogging prowess, takes beautiful pictures, and posts lovely recipes—so check out her blog ASAP. She had me hooked at her post about stuffed bell peppers. Plus, she’s from Texas (and an Aggies fan, Gig ’em!) and Texans know how to cook!creative

Now, I also have to nominate five bloggers for the Creative Blogger Award, which is a tough task because there are so many AMAZINGLY creative bloggers out there…but here it goes:

  • What’s For Dinner Moms? This blog probably contains the most enticing recipes I’ve ever run across. Almost everything she posts looks like something I would want to make! I’ve got this recipe in my back pocket and much, much more.
  • A Hundred Years Ago Sheryl posts recipes, housecleaning tips, and advertisements…all from 100 years ago. Her blog is such an interesting look back in time to how we used to live.
  • Pam’s Tactical Kitchen Of COURSE I had to nominate Pam. Her blog has an emphasis on homesteading/yard-to-table recipes and she makes some of the most interesting recipes I’ve ever seen.
  • Letters to Dutch Lindsay has just the sweetest blog; it’s set like a memory book for her son. She has fantastic recipes, DIY tips & tricks, and shares tips on how to be a creative parent. I love her lists…especially this list on how to preserve memories of your children.
  • My Kitchen My Thoughts I feel like Nancy and I are kindred spirits. She guides you so well through wonderful recipes and makes everything look so easy—like this beef bourguignonne recipe.

Five Facts About Me:

  • The first thing I learned to cook was bacon, egg and cheese toaster sandwiches. The eggs were scrambled!
  • Before working in TV, I cooked at a diner for two years (while I was in High School!)
  • I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor’s of Arts from Midwestern State University.
  • I consider celery my archnemesis. I won’t cook with it unless it is finely diced in a stuffing or in a sofrito base for a Bolognese.
  • I’ve shaken the hands of two presidents: Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

Again, I am so honored to recognized for this award! I just got back from a week long vacation in Topeka/Lawrence/Kansas City, so  that has where I have been the last week. Stay tuned for some AWESOME recipes this week, though!
