Versatile Blogger Award

Holy Smokes! I’ve been presented with the Versatile Blogger Award by the wonderful blog Needful Things. Thank you so much, Grapefruit! This is the first and only award I have received, so it means a lot to me. Especially coming from another blogger I admire (check out her great photography).

The guidelines for accepting this award are :

Thank the person who gave it to you
Tell 7 things about yourself
Pass the award on to 15 bloggers whom you have recently discovered, and think are fantastic.

So here are seven things you would never guess about me:

  • I love people who make me laugh out loud.
  • Dried sweetened coconut makes me gag.
  • If I had to move out of L.A., I’d move to Barcelona, Spain.
  • I play piano and clarinet.
  • The two things in the kitchen I couldn’t live without are my chef’s knife and mini processor.
  • I thrive on silence.
  • I’d choose buttered salted popcorn over chocolate-anything every time.

I hereby present the Versatile Blogger Award to these absolutely brilliant, astonishing, wonderful, terrific and beautiful food blogs which I have recently discovered.

A Chow Life
Anecdotes and Apple Cores
Baking Serendipity
Burp and Slurp
Delightful Bitefuls

You’re very welcome! And I *so* admire YOUR photography!
What I love about this award is that each time someone passes it on, you get to check out more wonderful blogs that you never knew about. How wonderful is the blogosphere!
I too thrive on silence – especially in the kitchen. I need to be alone and for it to be completely quiet when I’m cooking. But unfortunately, that never happens when you have two kids under the age of 6 who insist on hanging around and ‘helping’ you 😉

Hi Lynne! We ate at Valentino’s tonight and I read your article in the Easy Reader. I’m definitely going to have to talk Russell into making the Alabama Back Road BBQ chicken! You look like you are having a great time and the photography is so incredible. Send me an e-mail and let me know what else you’ve been up to.

Thanks, Lynne! And now I’ll know never to make you laugh out loud while you’re eating dried sweetened coconut.

Oh wow! I’m blushing! Thank you so very much for the award, Lynne!

Barcelona is a great choice. The best place for foodies!

You are so sweet…your blog is one of the highlights of my day. I’m out traveling so I apologize if I don’t keep up with things as well I normally do. Have a lovely weekend

I never knew you played piano and clarinet…I do too! (Okay, I learned clarinet in elementary school and haven’t played since but I love the piano. )
