Awards

Yuppieeee!!! I got another set of awards!! Thanks a lot N33a for the awards! With awards comes extra responsibility and it is so inspiring to go that extra step and work hard at the kitchen as well as on the computer!!My husband was kidding me about my new habit of keeping the camera in our kitchen and taking pictures soon after finishing my daily cooking. My fellow bloggers are also setting new standards by the day and forcing me work that much more harder! and I am loving it all! Though relatively new to the world of food blogging, I have met very talented and creative people. Keep it going people, it is wonderful to be around.
