The Versatile Blogger Award

I woke up today to an award! How cool is that?
Mireia, from Baking in Spain, selected me to be one of the recipients of the Versatile Blogger Award!

When I started this food blog, a mere 7 weeks ago, I immediately got in touch with amazing bloggers all over the world. My virtual friendship with Mireia was one of the first ones. We share a passion for baking that I think is stronger because we also share Spanish as our first language, but felt an English blog would be more available to everyone.
We definitely agree that these kinds of awards are not important, but just a big hug from those who like what we write. It´s the warmest feeling.
So I immensely thank Mireia for opening my path to the domino effect that this kind of things have. In the end, it´s a great way to get the word out about blogs you like that might interest others also.

Here are the official rules:
  1. Add the award to your blog
  2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you
  3. Mention 7 random things about yourself
  4. List the rules
  5. Award to 15 bloggers
  6. Inform each of those 15 by leaving a comment on their blogs or on Facebook

Here are my awards; very difficult to choose only fifteen.
These blogs I obviously like and follow, for different reasons, and many are probably very well known, but I discovered some of them these past two months, which proves that many great food blogs are not immediately found.
 2.   Simmer
 5.   From Argentina with Love
 6.   Auntie Treats
 8.   Provecho Peru
 9.   Sis.boom
10.  Minimalista
11.  Treats
12.  Kitchen Vignettes

Seven things you might not know about me:

I hate fish and shellfish so much that I just say I´m allergic so people stop asking me to try it again.
I was born in Argentina, 43 years ago, in a province called Córdoba, where I still have many relatives.
I have Irish ancestors, from my mother´s side, whose last name is Fitz Gerald.
I lived in California for 2 years, when I was 13 and hated it! Sorry, but I was a teenager.
At one point in my life I was married and had 5 stepchildren. Yes, five!
I used to have two amazing dogs, golden retrievers, named Pericles and Violeta. I still miss them.
I talk and walk in my sleep.


  1. Glad you liked the award, I'll check the ones you've chosen, this is a great way to get to know other bloggers too :)

  2. Paula,
    thank you! it's been great making a connection with you!!!

  3. Muchas gracias por el premio! I am just finding it now! So glad you started your blog and have joined TWD. And I am really sorry you did not like California...aunque ahora vivo en Peru, la mayoria de mi vida estuve en CA. Me gusta mucho pero me siento mas en casa en el Peru. Saludos de Lima!

    1. I´m glad you like it Gretchen! It´s a great way to let others know about great blogs. I was a teenager in Calif so of course I wasn´t happy to be taken away from my friends!!

  4. Thank you Paula! Thanks for thinking of me : )

    1. You have a great, young blog and more people should know about it!


Your comments make my day! Thanks for taking the time to leave a note.
