Blogging with a Purpose

WOOT! I feel so honored, noticed, giddy even. I just received the “Blogging with a Purpose” award from fellow blogger and foodie Nicole from Art and Aioli, which by the way is a fantastic blog that I spy each day. Go visit her site and see what she has been cooking up and some pictures of her cute little kiddies. The brunch she just created for another blogger contest was beautiful and very ingenious.

The Yum Yum Award comes to me from Laura over at The Spiced Life and Leah at A Corner of My Kitchen. Laura has some delicious recipes and once it gets chilly out I am definitely going to try her Baked Oatmeal. It seems as though no recipe is too tough for Laura, her meals will amaze you. Leah not only has enticing photography her recipes are wonderful. Just lately she has made a Gazpacho, a Turkey Jalapeno Cheeseburger, and a Shrimp Salad that made my heart flutter. Thank you Laura and Leah!

I also received The Smile Award from Lisa at Jersey Girl Cooks. Her Sesame Scallops with Ponzu Spinach looks killer, can’t wait to try that one out! Being a Jersey Girl, Lisa has many recipes spotlighting Jersey favorites like seafood, blueberries and tomatoes. Many thanks Jersey Girl!

Now for the Music Meme from Veronica a Supermarket Serenade. She has entered her Warm Tropical Breeze Fruit Wraps in the Snack with Dole Recipe Contest and has made it to the finals. So go on over there and vote for her, this recipe is a winner.

Here are my 7 musical choices that get me grovin’, especially while cooking:
Mambo Italiano Rosemary Clooney
That’s Amore Dean Martin
Nessun Dorma Pavarotti
Sweet Home Alabama
Sound of Music Soundtrack
Anything from Fiddler on the Roof
No Reservations Soundtrack

    Well darn, I was going to give the award to Do Better too 🙂 Good choice!

    I love that you did some investigating on how this award got started. It’s sure been around a long time!

    Thank you for all your kind words!

    That is great you did some detective work on the award. I was thinking of it but was too busy or lazy… maybe both. I DID think it looked a lot like the font and use for the “Purpose Driven Life.” I did some freelance for the company that produces the book.
