I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to open my Google Reader the other day and see that Little Mommy, Big Appetite passed on a fabulous award to my new cooking blog! Especially since just a few days ago, my own mother discovered my little piece of the internet and called me saying "You started a what?!? You're not going to share any of our secret family recipes are you?!"
Don't worry, Mama, the family secrets are safe (unfortunately for my readers!) and I'm only posting recipes I just love, some of which are non-secret family favorites, and others are just fabulous dishes I come across online or in one of my dozens of cookbooks and magazines...
Anyway, I'm so honored to accept the Liebster Award, which spotlights blogs with fewer than 200 followers!
Here's the deal:
If awarded you are asked to:
1. Copy and paste this award on your own blog.
2. Thank the person who gave it to you, linking back to their blog.
3. Pass on the award to your 5 favorite blogs, keeping in mind that they should have fewer than 200 followers, and leave a comment on their blog to let them know.
4. Encourage the folks you award to keep the love going and continue to share the award!
So, without further ado, here are five of my favorite up and coming blogs:
