And the award goes to...

Okay, so this is what I get for procrastinating...  A few days ago, Jayne over at The Barefoot Kitchen Witch passed the Yum-Yum blog award to me.  I'm very honored that she did so--this is the first time I've received a food blog award.  If you haven't checked out her blog, you should.  Her writing is wonderful and often hilarious (especially when it's about her kids), and her process photos are awesome.  

So next I had to think of five blogs to pass this along to...  One of the first ones to come to mind was Dianne's Dishes.  I love reading her posts on a daily basis, and the recent "Ice Cream Week" was wonderful.  When I started looking through my feed reader this morning (421 posts right now!  Can you tell I had a long week with no time to read much after I got home from work?) I discovered that she has sent me this award as well!  Well, right back at you, Dianne!

And the rest:

Madam Chow's Kitchen - I've bookmarked quite a few recipes to make from her blog.  Now I just need to find the time. =)

Mevrouw Cupcake - Mari takes the most wonderful pictures of everything she makes. Yum.

Brown Eyed Baker - I love that Chelle seems to be as much of Cook's Illustrated fan as I am.

The Sour Dough - One of these days I am going to finally make sourdough bread. I've got Mary's starter instructions bookmarked for when I do.

Thanks for the inspiration, ladies!  Now pass it on!


  1. Di! Thank you so much for giving me the Yum Yum award. I'm honoured that you thought of me to pass it on to.

    I can't wait to see your bread when you find time in your crazy schedule to do so.

  2. Thank you so much for the award!! And you're right - I do love CI ever so much! :)

  3. An award well deserved! I tagged you for a meme, but you may have already gotten it. check out my blog for details.

  4. Thank you for this fabulous award, Di! I'm very honoured!

  5. I made the yum yum blog award just a few months ago to see where it would end up (and wow the places I have saw it). I am amazed on all the traveling she has done to all these yummy blogs. You deserve it, keep up the good work.
