Spreading The Love
There are so many wonderful blogs that I follow that I kind of feel guilty leaving any of them out. I am sure that a few of you have probably already received this award. I mean how could you not, you are so marvelous! Here are the blogs that I have nominated:
www.filingawaycupcakes.wordpress.com Anita is my blogging best buddy. How many of us can say that as a child we lived in a Cambodian refugee camp or on a tropical island? She can. She has had an interesting life and has a lot to offer the rest of us. Her recipes are incredible but she seems to be very modest about it all. On top of all of this, she is also a law student. She is always encouraging and leaves the sweetest comments.
www.delicio8.wordpress.com Mina is another one who is very supportive. I am inspired by her bravery to get in there and try some of the toughest recipes out there. She has some wonderful recipes and I have a few of hers that I plan to make at some point.
www.iamsimplytia.wordpress.com Tia was raised in the West Indies and states that she is a simple girl in her own simple world, but let me just tell you that this girl is really bringing it! She posts every single day and sometimes a couple times of day. She is no slacker this one. And the recipes are wonderful. She seems to impress with every post.
www.sweetsamsations.wordpress.com Sam is precious and always sends kind comments my way. This girl has got some skills okay! I love all of her recipes. They are truly wonderful, but please go check out her Valentine’s Pav-Love-A. It is spectacular!
www.gobakeyourself.wordpress.com Choc Chip Uru is who she has become in the land of blog. I am inspired by her because she is a teenager who is truly beyond her years. Her blog is fun and creative and is a good read. She has a passion for the recipes she creates for us and is always supportive to me with her comments.
www.letsspicethingsupinvegas.wordpress.com Elly is a sweet girl who is from Bulgaria and she loves to cook for her husband. She is definetly spicing things up in Vegas with her wonderful recipes.
www.blessyourhippieheart.wordpress.com I know she just nominated me, but Lori is definetly on my list of blogs that inspire me. Not only for her fabulous recipes but because you can tell she cares about things that are going on in the world and she shines a light on topics that should matter to all of us. So bacatcha Lori.
www.averilgomes.wordpress.com Averil is such an interesting person who sounds like she has already had a full life. She always sends nice comments my way and she nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award. She is a writer, an artist, a lawyer AND she cooks, WOW!
www.malouprestado.wordpress.com Malou was one of the first people to follow my blog. She inspires with her photography. Her pictures are just remarkable and make you long to visit the places she photographs.
www.kaitlynkirby.com Kaitlyn not only has great recipes but she provides a lot of useful information on her blog. She is very informative about anything from aprons to beer. She also takes good pictures of her food. Just love her.
www.violetsandcardamom.com Violets blog is like a magazine. It covers all of the topics. Anything from food, beauty, fashion, great photography and it is some of the best writing out there. Also I think she might be on a quest to master Peruvian cooking. I love her blog for all that she shares with us.
www.brushneedleandwhisk.wordpress.com I connect with Rachael because of her love for art which is also a love of mine. She inspires me to get up and go paint when she shares her artwork. She has also shared some wonderful recipes!
