Hey Y’all,

Christine , a fellow blogger at Texanaskitchen  awarded me with The Liebster Award for being one of her top 5 favorite new blogs.  I can’t tell you how excited I was to recieve this, especially from somebody who I follow and admire so much! I was in total shock and sat stunned in front of my computer for probably 5 minutes before I was even able to respond in any type of way and share the news with Mrs. G. 


The Liebster Award originated fromGermanyand it means “favourite, beloved, dearest”.  

The rules are: 

1) Show thanks to the blogger who awarded you by linking back to her blog.

2) Pick 5 blogs with less than 200 followers and let them know about your nomination by leaving a comment on their blog, and 

3) Post the award on your blog!


I am not sure how many followers most bloggers have (and I know some of them well over 200), but I am awarding my top five to my favorite bloggers in general. I had a hard time coming up with this list, trying to find blogs that I liked who had not yet received this award, when I realized that you can get this award multiple times. So some of my picks are not first time winnners, but in fact have won this before.

My 5 nominees (in no particular order):

The Unorthodox Epicure – A fellow Texan, Adam the aspiring food snob,  whose posts are both insightful and hillarious. Always has me laughing.

Juanita’s Cocina – Another fellow Texan, Jen (OK I promise I won’t pick only Texans), whose post remind me of growing up in South Texas. I promise I will try and duplicate your tortillas.

The Posh Latin Cook – I believe Elena is a fairly new blogger with roots in both Puerto Rico and New York. Can’t wait to see more of what she comes up with.

Necessary Indulgences – Kristi over at Necessary Indulgences. Had to include a fellow Egghead (somebody who owns a Big Green Egg and is obsessed with cooking on it for those who don’t know). Not to mention her travel pictures are stunning.

Kristianne over at My San Francisco Kitchen – you had me with your Chocolate Surprise Peanut Butter Cookies. I don’t normally do much baking, but these I have to try. Also love the photography here.

Make sure to go and check out their blogs and leave them a comment letting them know what you think.. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
