I’ve been nominated for the Sunshine Award!

Sunshine Award rules:

  • Include the award’s logo in a post on your blog.
  • Answer 10 questions about yourself.
  • nominate 10 other bloggers.
  • Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs, letting them know they have been nominated.
  • Share the love and link the person who nominated you.

Well, this is a surprise! I’m not even sure what a sunshine award is but I am happy to receive such a nomination from the lovely Jody of http://thriftshoppingbuzz.com/!

I guess I should follow the rules and go right ahead and tell y’all a little about myself. I didn’t quite like the original questions, so I made some of them up myself.

  1. My favourite season of the year: Summer weather suits me better, but I do love to ski
  2. Morning or night person: morning, all the way. I have so much trouble staying up and I hate wasting my day sleeping 
  3. My favourite form of exercise: running and skiing
  4. My favourite drink: Beer, or anything with gin
  5. Savoury or sweet: I like sweet first thing in the morning, then have to have savoury after, then sweet, then savoury….
  6. My passion: I don’t think I have just one, but I know that I love food, the outdoors, travel, and people
  7. Piercings or tattoos: I only have piercings, and find them addicting, and that is why I don’t think I should get a tattoo…I’d probably end up tattooing my whole body
  8. My favourite day: wake up around 7, go for a long run on the beach, eat peanut butter pancakes, lie in the sun and tan, have a ton of beer, go out for a seafood dinner (…lobster), then dance until the sun rises and fall asleep on a bed made of clouds….
  9. My favourite music: reggae and electronic
  10. My favourite flower: Orchid

Next step, my Nominations for the Sunshine Award:

1. The always cute and chocolatey Katie from http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/.

2. Emily of http://www.visionsofsugarplum.com/ was the first food blogger I ever started following!

It is finally here!!

29 Feb

My one true love appeared on my doorstep this afternoon.  If such things could occur between humans and objects, I’m sure it would be my soul-mate. Behold, the one and only, the riveting, Joy the Baker Cookbook!

What a Goddess

This book is magical. It contains so much sugar, butter, and love! I feel like I have peeked into Joy’s soul and discovered her incredible love and devotion to food, something I’m sure that many other foodies like yourself can understand. Joy expresses how she can feel certain emotions from specific dishes, and gushes how a wonderful meal can set the perfect atmosphere. Basically, the girl gets it. She lives for food like many of us, making her book that much more special and closer to the heart.

I am very excited to start baking from this book, as I am sitting here, drooling over the recipes. You’re in luck because I will be sharing the results with you!

Happy baking!
