Awards

I started this blog in 2008 to share recipes with the handful of friends and family who often asked for them.  And here we are a year and half later, with nearly 50 followers, over 100 Facebook fans (and growing every day) and close to 1000 hits in the last month!!  I'm blown away and honored that people are that interested in my blog.  I love sharing recipes and kitchen tips with you!

To top it all off, I've been nominated for three awards.  I'm so terribly behind on accepting them and passing them on so bear with me.  I also need to cut the nominees by half since I have SO many to pass on...

One Lovely Blog Award - received 6/19/2009
Bim over at D is for Dinner honored me with this reward shortly before I had my baby.... who is now 8 months old. "A little behind" doesn't even begin to describe my life...  This was my very first award - thank you to Bim who has been a faithful reader from the beginning!  :)
