Blogging with a Purpose

Nicole at Art and Aioli bestowed upon me the Blogging with a Purpose award. This is my first blog award and I couldn't be more flattered! It is slightly crazy to me that anyone even reads the thoughts and recipes I put out into cyberspace, much less actually enjoys it. Don't worry, I'm not getting a big head though. ;) Thanks Nicole for giving me this award!

Now I get to pass on this award on to 5 others.

  • The Home Cook at A Taste of Home Cooking: I just realized when I was tagging her for this award that I don’t know her actual name. All her posts are as “The Home Cook.” Anyway, I love reading her blog! Her food is all about cooking for her family and friends and she uses ingredients I usually have around my house. That in and of itself is blogging for a purpose in my book!
  • Leslie at Definitely Not Martha: Her tagline says it all. “The daily struggles of the domestic un-goddess.” Her food looks pretty domestic goddess-like to me though! She is hilarious and I love to check in and see when she has a new post. Leslie has great recipes and her posts are always entertaining to read. Each post is like a story and she uses a lot of step by step pictures with her recipes.
  • Jaime at Good Eats ‘N Sweet Treats: I just recently discovered Jaime’s blog and I have really enjoyed reading her past entries. I’ve already used some her suggestions in making Chicken Tikka Masala and I can’t wait to try out more of her recipes. She loves to bake and since that is an area where I am severely lacking I am taking notes!

  • Emiline at Visions of Sugar Plum: First and foremost I am impressed with the fact that Emiline writes her own recipes. Whereas I throw some things together and call it a dish, she actually writes REAL recipes…like baked goods…where you have to have accurate measurements. I am totally in awe of this skill! Her pictures are equally impressive and always make me hungry, even if it’s something my picky self wouldn’t normally eat. ;)

  • Celeste at Sugar & Spice: Celeste is another Alabama girl! Her blog is full of great recipes. She is straight forward and to the point. Her posts are less about stories and background and more about the food. She makes a point to make sure you have all the details about the dishes she has made. Her pictures are also awesome!!!

Award-winners, here's what you should do:
1. nominate 5 blogs which haven't had this award before
2. each of the blogs must have a purpose
3.the nominated blogs must make a link back to this page
4. the logo from the award must be put on their blog and it must link back to this blog!

Thank you SO much for this award! I'm honored and touched. :) I, too, love knowing that there are people out there reading my thoughts and recipes, trying them in their own kitchens and just generally liking what I put out there into cyberspace. I've seen your blogger in my stats but I haven't had a chance to really check out your site. I will definitely find the time (I love the name!) Thanks again!
