I was doubly-awarded . . .
Thank you, to both Julie and Nikki for the props -- it's lovely to know people actually enjoy reading this! It's fun making blog-friends across the world, and reading all about everyone else's kitchen-ventures.
AND, to share the love, here are a few of my faves (in no particular order):
Melody makes amazing, healthy, nutritious food, and also somehow manages to take cookbook-worthy photos of it all! I know who to go to when I need food photography lessons!
The House of Simon
Carrie and her husband like to eat, drink, and have fun -- and Carrie has an amazing sense of humor! Here silly posts about Bryan Adams and other crazy stuff always make me giggle out loud! Plus, she shared her lemon merengue pie recipe with me -- very important stuff.
Where's the Revolution?
Bazu and Daiku eat amazing vegan food, are firm in their beliefs, but never get preachy or annoying about it. The kind of folks you want on your side in a courtroom . . . AND in a kitchen!
Megan the Vegan
Megan's great -- she'll post about the most simple meal one day, the most complex the next. I love her sense of culinary adventure, coupled with her everyday favorites. Plus, she's one dang funny lady! I love her profile pic, spatula and headlamp at the ready!
Jenna blows my mind -- she doesn't post all that often, but when she does . . . holy cow! Her food looks amazing, and she manages to prepare it with her baby daughter nipping at her heels the whole time! (And I just want to reach into my computer and pinch Reno's cheeks!)
Vicki and I go "way back" in blogdom, back to the day when she blogged under a different url and when I still ate a little meat! She has two beautiful daughters who are frequently featured on her blog, and she cooks wonderful things with them in the kitchen. Plus, all the Hodges have amazing style -- those girls have the BEST hats! (And Olivia frequently cooks in pearls, tiaras, or other wonderful accessories.) P.S. Jolie is a stitch!
The Urban Vegan
Dynese and "Omniman" make preparing the most complex of meals look like a walk in the park. Her photos of their meals are stunning, and their two adorable, funny cats make frequent visits to the blog as well. PLUS, they were featured in the New York Times! How cool is that??
