Shine On Award

I was nominated for my first blog award!    Ada, who writes a tasty food blog called More Food, Please, nominated me for the Shine On Award.  I am truly honored by her nomination.  There are so many excellent food blogs; just knowing that people visit and read my blog is quite a compliment, but an award nomination makes the time I spend writing even more worthwhile.    If you have never visited Ada’s blog, I encourage you to do so.  She posts wonderful stories & recipes, the most recent being some exquisite and delicious {I’m sure} Rose and Lavender Macarons. 


The rules are:
1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Acknowledge that blogger on your blog, and link back.
3. Share seven random, interesting things about yourself.
4. Nominate up to 15 bloggers for the ‘Shine On’ Award, provide a link to their blogs in your post, and notify them on their blogs.

Here are 7 random, hopefully interesting, things about me:
* I am a huge Dr. Who fan.
* I moved to Alaska when I was 6 weeks old, and to Hawaii {Oahu} 12 years later, where I met my future husband {of 35 years!}.
* The kitchen is my favorite room in the house; I love being there.
* Food and music are my favorite topics of discussion.
* Some of my favorite musicians are, in no particular order, Underworld, Radiohead, Yeasayer, Ghostland Observatory and !!! {pronounced chk chk chk}.
* My earliest recollection of being interested in food is when I was in the fourth grade.  I loved getting the cooking badge in Girl Scouts!
* Like many foodies, I enjoy a good cookbook for bedtime reading.

I have recently discovered some food blogs that I would like to nominate for the Shine On Award.  I am looking forward to reading their archives and upcoming posts.  You may want to check out what they are writing about.  They are:

Danube Waltz

Dinner of Herbs

Paper and Salt

The Back Yard Lemon Tree

Thank you again, Ada, for your kind nomination!
