I nominate Whoissugar because she captivates her audience from the beginning to the end of her blogs. From fashion to books to activism, she covers it all with great positive energy. Check out her energy up close and personal on Youtube
I nominate Steph’s Bite by Bite because she is very humble and full of life. Everytime you read her posting you can sense how passionate she is about what she is writing about. By the way Steph, congrats on the baby bump.
I nominate Valentina Tina’s cooking for the hunger provoking pictures of food. Have you ever seen a picture of food that made you instantly drool? Valentina’s blog page will make that happen!
I nominate The Country Cook for her very unique designed blog, in addition to her appetizing desserts postings.
I nominate Marketing Maven for her philanthropy, support to “No Kid Hungry” and her amazing marketing tips.
I nominate SugarBuzzed.com because of her fun witty blog. It is full of high energy and CandyLand colors. My favorite post is Rainy Day Float
I nominate Cravings of a Lunatic because of the versatile and unorthodox food recipes. She has one of the most wide spread categories of food that I have ever seen on a blog, giving her audience a variety of recipes to choose from. I love her tagline too, “Welcome to the asylum! It’s a place where I like to take perfectly normal food and “Lunatic” it.”.
I nominate Juanita’s Cocina for her inspiration and honesty to her readers. She is the Queen of clever and unique side dishes, for example, Avocado Fries
I nominate Jessie Kaufman because of her ability to prepare great food and photograph it as a professional food photographer. She helps other food bloggers with insight on how to create good food images and how to protect them. Thanks Jessie for the tips.
I nominate The Cookie A Day Challenge for the dedication and hard work. She is up to 81 Cookie recipes, latest one is vegan. She is also a proud supporter of “Share Our Strength” No Kid Hungry through their Cooking Matters events. If you have read my Bake Sale for a Cause
posting, then you would know that I am also a proud supporter of “Share Our Strength” No Kid Hungry.
I nominate Gluten Free Food because all of the recipes provided are gluten free. She also teaches about using different types of Chickpea beans to create different types, textures and flavors of flour. This is especially helpful to those who need gluten free alternatives.
While I think that about covers it! Thank you again to “Eating with my Family” for nominating me for this award. I am humbled and honored.
