Allison at French Whisk gave me my second Stylish Blogger Award! She’s so thoughtful! Her blog is really interesting because she’s in Vancouver, Canada and is able to give a different point of view on dishes/ingredients compared to a lot of State-side bloggers I read. If you haven’t checked her out or added her to your blog roll, do it now!
So, as per the instructions, I have four (4) things I must do now that I’ve been bestowed this award. First, thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award. Thank you so much, Allison! You’re awesome!
Second, share seven (7) things about yourself. I know you’re just itching to learn another seven things about me, so here goes!
1. My sister (Codename: Psychology Gamer) owns a male cat named Jack. He likes to purr, crawl, and be underfoot when I’m busy in the kitchen. He also likes to sniff food that’s within his reach. My sister and I say that this is Jack’s way of helping in the kitchen, or “Jack helping”, meaning “not helping at all.”
2. I’ve wanted to visit Tuscany ever since I read Frances Mayes’ villa restoration memoir in “Under the Tuscan Sun”. And, no, the film version did NOT do the book justice.
3. I only like watching the movie Julie & Julia for the Julia Child parts. I skip over the scenes with that other person.
4. I greatly prefer colder weather as opposed to hot or scorching weather. You can always put on more clothes to get warm, but you can be naked and still be hot and uncomfortable. Plus, bundling up is so cute!
Third, award 15 recently discovered great bloggers. Since I last received a “Stylish Blogger Award”, I’ve discovered a whole new crop of foodie blogs! As such, I’d like to give a “Stylish Blogger Award” to the following:
