A First!

A warm “Thank You” to Fae of Fae’s Twist and Tango for nominating my blog for my very first award. I’ve not been blogging long, so I’m absolutely astonished and delighted that I’ve even been picked.

Fae is a lovely lady with a multicultural background– having grown up with Persian parents, in Japan. She posts delicious recipes along with stories from her life, which make really interesting reading.

And here is the award!

And now its my turn to pass on the award to others:

1. Zoe Bakes: A wonderful baking resource!  Zoe is who I go to now, for all my baking-related queries answered.

2. Aahaaram: Indian food at its spiciest! Do visit Aruna’s blog and celebrate vegetarian food.

3. Jo The Tart Queen: Jo’s blog is as visually beautiful as her recipes are yummy!

4. Frozen Wings: Lena was the first person to encourage me to blog. She was also the first person to leave me a comment 🙂

6. Mama’s Gotta Bake: Sheryl captivates you with her tagline- “She’s bad, she’s bold…. and she likes sugar”

8. Sweet and Crumby: Geni calls baking her solace, her fun and her passion. Check out her genuinely sweet blog.

9. Cooking Tackle: Ira lives in beautiful Bali and cooks the most visually stunning food. Unfortunately as a vegetarian I can’t try most of her recipes. But they are a treat for the eyes!

10. Today’s Inspiration: I’m not sure how or when I found this enchanting blog featuring illustrators for books and magazines. But if you love water colours and read Women’s Weekly or Reader’s Digest Condensed Books in the 80s, you’ll love this!
