Food Stories Award

Food Stories is pleased to present the Food Stories Award for Excellence in Storytelling, a fabulous nomination that anyone can bestow on their fellow bloggers.

I have to thank the wonderful Kathy of Bakeaway with Me for this nomination.
She was one of my first blogging friends and is always a source of inspiration with her blog. So many times I open her site and see a recipe for something I´d been thinking of doing (coconut flan, pistachio biscotti). Now, I also know that we both have a ridiculous amount of cookbooks…

Thanks so much for this nomination Kathy! It´s a warm feeling to know that others enjoy what I have to share.

In keeping up with step 3 (listed below), I will tell you that my most embarrassing moment was fainting at my cousin´s wedding. I was his wedding godmother (something like a maid of honor) so this happened right up at the altar, with everybody watching and of course they had to stop the ceremony for a while. Gladly, I quickly recovered from the fainting but not from the embarrasement. It´s all on tape.

The blogs I like and follow are many. They make me laugh or have me interested in a new ingredient or story I knew nothing about. I know there are bloggers who don´t like to participate in these things; for me it´s a nice way of sending a good vibe to others who take the time to share stories and recipes, that, in my case, help me spend a good time while reading them.
Here are my narrowed down nominations:
