I am so new to blogging – since January 2013 to be exact – and the fact that you have chosen me to be on your list is a real honor. I am not surprised that your blog was nominated you are always an inspiration with your recipes and fun spirit. Congratulations to you my blogging friend and thanks again for the nomination! 🙂

        I am so honored to be considered a blogging friend of your because I feel the same way! What I love about your blog is it gives a little bit of everything and I love the simple yet awesome posts that you deliver everyday! I was telling my sister a little bit about the award today and I am still in awe I was nominated. Blogging has truly changed my life in the way I view food and to write about what I love is an amazing privilege. I am just happy to show what I love and to inspire even one person is so amazing. You and so many inspire me to work better and harder in the kitchen so in a way I have to thank you!

        Thank you so much! I have been reading various blogs for years that I have stumbled on for one reason or another. My blog consists of the the things I love and love to read about. It was my hope to inspire some to try and undertake more crafting, cooking, baking, gardening, etc. It really isn’t that difficult but as a society we seem to be moving further and further away from the domestic and relying more on the quick fix. It takes the joy away from the process of creating it yourself. I am honored that you nominated me and am so happy to be an inspiration to you.

      • smileycook says:

        I agree with you on societies quick fixes, the beauty of creating something so simple and easy sometimes gets over-shadowed with not having enough time to do anything. If we actually took the time to relax and enjoy the simpler things, we would all be a little bit more happier. You def have inspired me and I know you inspire others 🙂

    • smileycook says:

      You deserve it! Your blog is AWESOME! I did have alot of fun making all those things, even with the lack of sleep the next day LOL. And I will make a truffles posting soon, they are soo fun and easy to make!
