Or, in the words of the Simpsons' Oh Streetcar! "A stranger's just a friend you haven't met". Some lovely, lovely people have been handing awards to me, willynilly across the blogosphere. Nice to know someone likes what I am doing!
Sam at Antics of a Cycling Cook and Dee from Choos & Chews gave me the Brillante Weblog Premio Award. I can't believe Dee - whose pancake mix is now indispensable to my health and happiness - is giving me an award! And Sam is a pretty new discovery for me, but his baking is admirable. You should see his French-style apple tart. Wonderful stuff!
Gloria from Cookbook Cuisine and Teresa from Mexican Chocolate Lore (and her other lovely blog Mexican-American Border Cooking ) have granted me the I'm a Chocoholic Award. Which is funny really, because normally I can take chocolate or leave it, but ever since they told me they'd given me this one I have been absolutely craving chocolate! Good thing a couple of kind friends recently gave me boxes of Leonidas Belgian chocolate truffles. I will now have one to celebrate!
