The Versatile Blogger Award

I have some catching up to do and apologies to make regarding these awards because I'm horribly behind in writing my post and acknowledging the wonderful talented bloggers who were kind enough to pass them along to me!

First, I would like to thank Marelie at Cookie Droplets.  She gave me the Stylish Blogger award.  Marelie blogs from Singapore but is originally from the Philippines.  I love reading her blog to see the delicious Filipino Creole dishes she specializes in.  Her love of food and flavors really comes through in her blog and I know you all will enjoy visiting her site.

Now, I would like to say thank you and recognize the two blogs From my Sweet Heart and Gastronome Tart who nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award.  Please check out these outstanding blogs.  Both of these ladies are so talented and are always cooking up dishes that make my mouth water! It has been great getting to know all three of the ladies behind these blogs over the past few months.

So, this award dictates that I share some factoids about myself so here goes:

1. We have a little Burmese cat named Bella who likes to play fetch.  I didn't know cats could fetch until we adopted her!
2.  I love the ocean and feel "homesick" if I don't see it enough.
3.  Parks and Recreation is my favorite show on TV right now.  It kind of makes me want to live in Pawnee, IN if there were such a place.
4.  I'm originally from Florida
5.  I'm addicted to finding cute cupcake liners.  I really need an intervention.
6.  I love this time of year and all of the good produce that's yet to come for the summer!
7.  I have a gigantic coffee mug that I love to drink my coffee from in the morning.  I'm very sad when its in the dishwasher.  Such attachment to a mug, I know its weird!

Now I'd like to pass this award on to some of the other blogs that I enjoy reading.  Please be sure to check out their sites for some reading and recipe enjoyment!

1.  The Orange Bee
2.  Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker
3.  From a Writer's Kitchen
4.  Kitchen Groovy
5.  Chris's Gourmet Fashion
6.  Deelicious Sweets
7.  California Living
8.  Bakeaway with Me
9.  Tricia and Nana Cooking with Dorie
10. Apples and Twinkies
11. Poet in the Pantry
12. Yummy Chunklet
13. Alchemy in the Kitchen
14. The French Whisk
15. Sunshine and Smile

Congrats everyone!


  1. Thank you so much for passing the award my way Ryan! You are such a sweetheart. I totally get your attachment to your coffee mug. I have a place in my heart for my favorite mug too. You deserved every single award. You have an awesome blog and your pictures are always beautiful :)

  2. Ryan, thank you so much for passing the award to me! I enjoy your blog so much and you are such an inspiration to me. It looks like we have much in common. :) I am needing more space for cute cupcake liners and we had a cat, Kitty Goto, who fetched better than any dog I have seen! :) Congratulations on your awards - they are so well deserved!

  3. I love cute cupcake liners as well, but always talk myself out of them because I can't bear for them to be thrown away so easily. =D Congrats on your award. It is well deserved! And, thanks for passing one on to me. I'll be doing a post later this week about it!

  4. Ryan, Thanks so much for passing this award on to me. Great minds must think alike...I just chose you to receive an award on my blog. You so deserve it…I really enjoy reading your blog and checking out what you've been baking. Congrats on your award! I just ordered some very cute cupcake liners on e-bay!

  5. Hi, Ryan! Congrats on your's fun getting to know you a little better. I'm always looking for cute cupcake liners,'ll have to share some of your favorites :)

  6. Thanks for the award, Ryan!! How fun! So - I also have a favorite mug that I drink from every morning and I always make sure it's clean every morning - it was a gift from my kids that says "Home is where your mom is". I absolutely cherish it! I have been so enjoying your blog - I have a growing obsession with baking, so I'm really enjoying the baked goods you are showcasing!!!

  7. Hi Ryan, congrats on your award and thanks for passing it on. I get the mug thing. I have a giant mug and until I've had a pint of tea from it I'm not happy. My cat is slacking, I thought he was smart for walking to heel but I'm going to try train him to fetch after reading about your talented Bella.

  8. Congratulations on your awards. You definitely deserve them. Thank you for passing one on to me. I am so glad for all of the friends I have met through this blogging adventure!

  9. Congratulations and thanks for kindly sharing! Thanks for the well wishes for my nephew and his little girls. They are doing fine now. It could have been so much worse! I see you are from Florida. Their accident happened in Orlando. Still a small world for us!!

  10. Ryan, Congrats on the awards - you definitely are deserving. Thank you too for passing the "versatile blogger" award on to me. Versatility could be my middle name - if you only knew! I'll blog about this honor in the next few days. Am I supposed to answer questions about myself as you did? Also how can I place the widget on my blog? I'm still stumbling on this kind of stuff. Thanks again and keep up your good work - I love your posts. p.s. - who eats all those baked goods?

  11. Ryan first of all Congratulations on receiving this award - you truly deserve it. You have a lovely blog and I love it. Thanks so much for thinking of passing it on to me, I really appreciate your friendship.
