More This and That

Strawberries and KumquatsI can't believe how busy July has been, and I apologize for not being able to catch up with everyone's blogs and posts lately! Right now, I'm visiting family and friends in Saskatchewan and trying to squeeze in some blogging in-between.

It's so nice to get an award and even better when it's from bloggers I admire. Over the last week, this has happened twice! I feel so lucky and honored and flattered and astounded!

First, Holly from Phemomenon, gave me the Yummy Blog Award. Holly is a phenomenally creative chef in the kitchen! You have to check out her Peanut Butter Bars!! She is also extremely friendly and drops by so many blogs to provide feedback and encouragement. She's a true inspiration. Thanks so much for the award, Holly!

Now, it's my turn to share the award with a few of my favorite bloggers:
seven spoons
Taste Buddies
The Food Librarian

Next, Anne from Anne Strawberry gave me the Brillante Weblog award. Anne bakes and cooks and blogs all while taking care of a baby boy! She's amazing. Check out her Cupcake Pops! I definitely want to make those someday! Thanks, Anne, for the award. You're a sweetie!

Here are a few more of my favorite bloggers:
Daisy Lane Cakes
Crazy Delicious Food
Lemon Tartlet and the Dust Bunnies

Finally, Lore from Culinarty included my choux swan as part of her round-up of 10 Original Food Photos #2. Thanks, Lore! What a week!
