Fun with Awards

I've received three blog awards this month - it's always such a compliment to find a bloggie in the comment box! I'll pass them along to some great blogs that I've not yet honored.

Lisa of Magic Sprinkles gave me the I'm a Chocoholic award, and my question is: how did she know? I enjoy Lisa's blog because she is always cooking up delicious and fun food, and she writes about her adventures with humor and grace. Thanks, Lisa!

I'd like to pass this award to:
Cathy of The Tortefeasor (my only repeat recipient)
Maria of Two Peas and Their Pod
Amanda of Amanda's Cooking

I received the Kreativ Blogger Award from Peggy of Pantry Revisited. I love to read Peggy's blog because she's always up to something fun, like dressing as Little Red Riding Hood for Halloween, or baking in the midst of a total kitchen overhaul. This award comes with a meme- 7 categories of questions that require 7 answers each. You can find the meme at Peggy's post, but I must confess: I'm not much of a meme person, so I'm going to skip it!

Part of the meme is to name 7 recipient blogs. But I'm just going to I'll bestow this award to a few other blogs, and let each of them decide whether to play along or not:
Jamie of My Baking Addiction
Steph of Obsessed With Baking
Amanda of Beckett Bakes It

The Butterfly Award comes from none other than The Tortefeasor herself! Cathy has now joined three blog cooking events, so we will all be treated to three times the fun as she posts her results. Never a dull moment chez Tortefeasor!

This award has some rules also*, but since I'm in a rebellious mood, I'm passing this one on to just these special blogs:
Peggy of Pantry Revisited
Natalia of Gatti Fili e Farina
MacDuff of Lonely Sidecar
Caitlin of Engineer Baker

*from Cathy's site: "The rules of this award are: 1. Pick ten people to pass this onto if you choose (please note the emphasis here on the "if you choose" part. I am trying to honor your blog, not give you more work! If you don't want to pass it on, great! If you just want to pass it on to one or two other blogs, terrific! I won't tell the Butterfly Award police, I promise.) 2. Contact them and let them know you have chosen them for this award. 3. Also, link back to the person who gave you the award."

{Note: I'm celebrating my first 100 blog posts with a cookbook giveaway - to enter, go here and leave a comment before December 3}

Look at you racking up those bloggys, Nancy!! You deserve every last one of them! Thank you for thinking of me for the esteemed I'm A Chocoholic Award! I really AM a chocoholic, and am so flattered that you thought of my blog. BTW, I am traveling and limited in my communications to the crackberry, but your salad and your potatoes look fantastic! They almost make me want to skip the turkey!

Thanks Nancy! That is a "cool" award. I love getting any type of pat on the back for anything. I don't feel worthy, but I'll accept graciously. You are the BEST! Thanks and I am truly honored that you thought of me. And those potatoes look divine! I love Thanksgiving and can't wait to eat all that tasty food! Have a good one yourself.
