The Food Stories Award for Excellence in Storytelling

Nomination for the Award:

I would like to thank Kathy of Bakeaway with Me, for choosing my blog to receive a nomination for “The Food Stories Award for Excellence in Storytelling”. It is nice to have been chosen.

Kathy has a wonderful and interesting blog and I love reading all her posts. One of her recipes is pinned right now to my fridge door and is awaiting the end of this post, so I can get into the kitchen and finally bake that cake!

What wonderful friends I have met while blogging – I have not been blogging for more than a few months but it already is rewarding and a lot of fun.

Thanks Kathy for being there with me and supporting me!

Now I get to share this award with 5 fellow bloggers!

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.
