Monday morning wins!

Here's a nice way to start the week: Michelle of Sweet Sensations has given my blog the Premio Arte y Pico Award*. I enjoy Michelle's blog because she's always cooking up delicious food - sweet and savory - and sharing her kitchen with friends and family. Thanks so much for thinking of me, Michelle!

I'll pass the award to the following blogs. Each of them makes for a fabulous read, so grab a cup of tea and check them all out!

Prudy of Prudence Pennywise
Michelle of Flourchild
Tealady of Tea and Scones
Jacque of Daisy Lane Cakes
Laura of She's Cooking Now

Oh, and I've posted the rules below, but it matters not to me if you pass this award or not. I just want you to know how cool I think your blog is.

*Here's the scoop on the award, and its rules:

"This award was created in Uruguay by a fellow blogger who makes dolls exclusively from recycled materials. Her blog can be reached by clicking here. The rules for this award include the following: Pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award, creativity, design, interesting material, and also contributes to the blogger community, no matter of language.
  1. Advertise name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone
  2. Each award-winner, has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
  3. Award-winner and the one who has given the prize has to show the link of “Arte y pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.
  4. Share these rules."
I also received a blog award from Amanda at Amanda's Cooking, a blogger who cooks up lots of cool food and shares her honest assessements. Thanks to her, I'm scratching Black Bean Brownies off my "to bake" list! And thanks for the award, Amanda.

This award doesn't seem to have attached rules, so I'll pass it to three wonderful (food, of course) blogs:
Mary of The Food Librarian
Pamela of Cookies With Boys
Amy Ruth of Amy Ruth Bakes
