Another Stylish Blogger Award!

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.”

"Jack helping"

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!

5. If I could own a dog, it would be an English bull dog rescue.

6. Television shows that I normally do not watch on a weekly basis will suddenly capture my attention if a marathon is playing, including Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Survivorman, and Top Shot.

7. Speaking of television, when I’m getting ready in the morning, I like to have Frasier on in the background. It was one of the few sitcoms that was intelligent and funny.

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:

A Busy Nest
Bright Morning Star
claire cooks
Karen and Nigella
Kudos Kitchen
Miss Anthropist’s Kitchen
My Sweet and Savory
One Perfect Bite
Pham Fatale
Quay Po Cooks
Sunshine & Smile
Taste of Pearl City
The Scene from Me
Through an INDIE LENS

Fourth, contact these bloggers and tell them about the award! Done and done!

    Such cute pics of Chunklet and Sister! I am off to the library today to pick up a copy of Under the Tuscan Sun. I have been looking for a book to read and I think that will really fit the bill.

    Cool, congratulations on another award! We often like to watch Frasier also when we need some background noise, it is an interesting show, I love Niles and his sad pursuit of Daphne.
