Sunshine Award

I was nominated by Satoya Foster for the Sunshine Award. 

“This is an award that goes to writers who brighten other people’s day.”

The rules are:

  • Include the Sunshine Award icon in your post
  • Link to the blogger who nominated you
  • Answer 10 questions about yourself
  • Nominate 10 other bloggers to receive the award
  • Link to your nominees and let them know you nominated them

Here are my answers to Satoya Foster’s 10 questions:

  • Why do you blog?

I’ve always enjoyed writing, but my passion is cooking and I want to help others to see just how easy and enjoyable cooking can actually be. It doesn’t always take everything in the pantry to make a tasty meal or dessert for your family or friends!

  • If you had one clothing item that you had to wear for a month, what would it be?

My sweater! I get cold easily, even in the summer time, so I usually keep something with me in case I get chilly.

  • What is a song you love that would surprise your friends?

Colour of My Love by Celine Dion. I’m not so certain it would surprise my friends, well perhaps a few 🙂

  • Are you a coffee or a tea drinker?

I used to be a big coffee drinker, but after suffering from what I could assume was a stomach ulcer, I had to give up coffee. I now drink mostly water or alkaline lemonade. It has cleared up my stomach issues. I do miss it occasionally but not enough to go back to it.

  • What is your favorite thing about blogging?

I’ll be honest, at first I wasn’t really into it. I struggle with expressing myself where people can understand my words, it’s not my strength. Often times I second guess how I’ve worded something or will completely delete an entire section from a post because I don’t feel like it’s pertinent. Over the last few months I’ve been able to glean a lot from fellow bloggers in learning how to hone my writing style. It’s made the blogging experience a bit more enjoyable for me. I do like being able to encourage others, simplifying something so that someone else will have the confidence to try something new and feel like they too can cook! I guess that’s my favorite thing 🙂 Being able to help folks!

  • If you could only eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

PIZZA!! If there has been anything I miss the most since going low carb/alkaline is pizza. Thick crust and lots of cheesy toppings! Love it cold from the fridge the next day 🙂

  • What are 3 things that you love about yourself?
  1. My willingness to try something new, at least once.
  2. Being bold enough to meet new people, which can be uncomfortable for this introvert!
  3. My twisted humor 😉
  • Do you ever dance or sing in public?

I used to sing in front of church when I was younger, but not anymore. And I’ve never danced out in public.

  • What is your favorite movie of all time?

So hard for me to choose because I love so many! I do love Arsenic and Old Lace, enjoy it both as a play and a movie!

  • If you had unlimited money to purchase ONE item, what would it be?

An underground house for my parents.

I nominate (in no particular order):

  1. Dinner of Herbs — Love her recipes, they’re healthy without sacrificing any flavor!
  2. Gluten Free Gus — Such an inspirational blog about a mother’s love and dedication in taking charge of her son’s dietary needs and making sure he has safe food for years to come!
