I’m honored and excited to accept the One Lovely Blog Award from The Great Zambini.

I started this blog in the fall of 2012 as a way to keep in touch with my friends who had all moved out-of-state. To share recipes, lunches, couponing tips, and maybe the occasional witty anecdote with them.

And for a long time, it was just my friends who stopped by and that was fine. I mean, that was the whole idea anyway. Kind of a hey guys, look what I made today kind of situation.

But now, a little over a year later, people from all over the world are stopping by my little place in cyberspace which is amazing since I never expected anyone other than my small circle of friends and maybe my husband to read my posts occasionally.

So thank you to all of you who follow this blog regularly.

Thank you to those who pop in from time to time.

And thank you to those of you that may be here for the very first time.

We all know the rules for accepting these awards by now. We link back to our nominator (done). We list seven new and hopefully interesting things about ourselves so that our readers can get to know us a little better. And we nominate seven other blogs for the same award.

Seven Random Things

1. If you serve me a drink in a martini glass, I will spill it. Every. Single. Time.

2. No matter how drunk sick or tired I am, I never go to bed without showering, flossing, brushing my teeth, and moisturizing. I might look and feel like garbage but at least I’m clean. 🙂

3. The sound of people scratching their jeans is worse than nails on a chalkboard to me.

4. I Biscoff.

5. I start every day with CNN or local news and end it with bad reality TV or 90’s sitcoms.

6. The smell of artificial lavender makes me sneeze uncontrollably.

7. It’s getting harder and harder to think of random things to share with you guys. It took me several weeks to come up with the six I just shared here and I think we can all agree that there’s nothing particularly stellar up there.

If you’d like to learn some other random bits about me, click here and here.

The best part of receiving this award is that I get to pass it along to seven other bloggers. These are a few food bloggers that I’ve recently discovered. I think you’ll like them too!

1. veggiesdontbite.com I love Sophia’s realistic approach to veganism. And I particularly love her post on all the ways she uses hemp seeds. I can never think of what to do with them. Thanks Sophia!

2. tabithasglutenfreedishes.com A blog I discovered recently and recommended to a friend who is now gluten-free.

3. bunnykitchen.com Beetroot and avocado in a chocolate cake!? Nuff said.

4. theglutenfreetreadmill.com Another blog I recently discovered and recommended to my GF gal pal. I can’t wait to try her vegetarian minestrone. Looks delish!

5. gamingfoodie.wordpress.com Two ingredient cookies? Sold.

6. eclecticlamb.com I love the vegetarian bentos Kathy makes for her nieces and nephews. Her Lion and lamb mini Shephard’s pies are too cute. My little lady would love these.

7. muchamunch.com A pretty blog filled with yummy food and beautiful food photography. Her pistachio and rosewater cupcakes are gorgeous.
