There’s no place like home…
I’m home! I’m home! Didja miss me?
Thanks to everyone that commented or emailed me about things to see and visit while on my east coast vacation. I’ll post pics in the next few days but in the meantime… guess what I got?!!
What a fabulous welcome home to receive a blogger award. My first one too! Fellow cupcake-er, Mara from Lick the Spatula, gave me the “The Arte y Pico” award which translates to ‘Peak of Art’. I am SO flattered!
I admit I love awards. Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. As much as I love getting them, I also love giving them out.
The rules for the award are:
> I have to pick five blogs who deserve this award because the content of their blog is creative, interesting, and they inspire the blogging community.
> Each recipient has to have their name and link back to their blog.
> The recipient must display the award and link back to the blog that awarded them the award.
> The recipient must also show the link back to Arte y Pico blog so everyone knows the origin of the award.
I have over 300+ blogs in my Google Reader that I read religiously everyday so its hard for me to narrow the list down to 5. I tried to choose blogs that inspire me and delight me every time I read them.
1. Nikki @ Crazy Delicious Food
She’s my mentor, my bestest foodie friend and the one I always turn to for advice, inspiration and motivation. Her blog aint bad either. I kid I kid. Her blog always makes me laugh and my absolute favorite picture is the marshmallow one. You’ll have to go peruse her blog to find it.
2. April @ Wine Lover’s Cooking Diary
Me and Ape (as I affectionately call her) have been friends for the last year. She writes about food, wine, family and life in her blog. Reading her blog is like getting a letter in the mail from a good friend everyday.
3. Rachel @ Coconut&Lime
I want to be like her when I grow up. Rachel writes 100% original recipes on her blog. I aspire to be like that with my blog someday. Hey, a girl can hope right?
4. Melanie @ My Kitchen Cafe
I can not tell you how many of her recipes I have tried and loved. Her blog is my go-to blog every time I have menu/dinner cooking block. The honey lime chicken enchiladas are freaking fabulous! You have to make them. NOW.
5. Shari @ Whisk Blog
I met Shari through our baking group, Tuesdays with Dorie, and she definitely stands out in a crowd. She has a friendly personality that you instantly become addicted to and her blog is absolutely amazing. I am so jealous of her photography skills.
Trust me. My list of deserving blogs could go on forever but I am still jet lagged and in need of about 24 hours straight sleep. Please feel free to play the game or not. I promise I won’t send the blogger police after you… or will I?
Good nite. Zzzzz….
