One Lovely Blog Award

I was ecstatic to be nominated by the lovely Ema Jones from Food4YourMood for One Lovely Blog award last week. My blog is still young and growing and this nomination made me so happy and really inspired me to carry on cooking and writing. So thank you so much Ema for such recognition for my blog.


The rules for this nomination seem to be quite straight forward so here it comes:

Rules for winning

1. Thank the person who has nominated you. Provide a link to his/her blog.

2. List the rules and display the award pic.

3. Include 7 facts about yourself.

4. Nominate some other bloggers and let them know that they have been nominated.

5. Display the award logo and follow the blogger who nominated you.

7 facts about myself

1- I love Indian food so much but I don’t know anything about Indian spices. I want to do a course to learn so I don’t have to use ready-to-use blended spices.

2- I love teaching and I hope my academic research career will open the door to an academic teaching career

3- I want to apply to the Great British Bake Off next year

4- I have now made 3 wedding cakes and I am considering starting a business, I even ordered business cards!

5- I want to move to the countryside and have a cow

6- I am what people call a “crazy cat lady”, even though I disagree with this term I do find myself watching cat videos on Youtube….p>

7- My husband is the reason I started this blog, if it wasn’t for his love of my cooking and his support to start it all I wouldn’t have a blog at all

The blogs I nominate:

1. Grow, Gather, Barter, Hunt

Follow their fascinating journey through a 10-day experiment of eating only from home grown, gathered, bartered and hunted products…OR starve!

2. Books and Bookshops

Maite is a very busy scientist but she always writes helpful reviews about her latest great read

3. Dimshum

Great reviews of restaurants around the globe. I especially use her blog for London restaurants

4. Mummy Cooks For Me

A talented home cook AND painter! I especially love how user friendly the blog is, with detailed recipes stating the level of difficulty, serving portions and time for preparation.

5. Eggton

Katherine is so incredibly funny and real in telling her life stories that I feel like I know her even though we’ve never met. I am so glad our communal friend Wenying sent me her blog link, I’ve read the whole thing and never looked back! Being an animal person, I particularly love any mention of Thunder and Seymour, her 2 lovely dogs.

6. The Wholesome Pursuit

Casey has a very clean and elegant blog. I want a blog just like hers! She is a pro and you see it in her original flavour combo such as Blue cheese and Fig ice-cream, and of course her whisky marinade for beef, which we used many times this summer to marinade a Porterhouse!!

7. Frugal Feeding

Nick did what we’re all trying to do out there, finding a niche and making the most out of it! His blog on eating well-sourced, local products is an inspiration each time he posts something, and I hope he will carry on filling my inbox with his simple and delicious recipes. His Ginger Nuts recipe is a winner. Believe me I have been baking these every week end for the past month to decorate a wedding cake!

8. Cooking Without Limits

Just beautiful… a masterpiece of amazing recipes and sensational pictures to feast your eyes upon.

9. Foodie Quine

I first heard from Clare through our respective husbands who used to work together and I have read every single one of her posts. Her foraging trips and cooking in the wild sessions are reinforcing our plans to move up to Scotland. This blog reflects the busy life of a multitalented woman, with so much love for her family, her work and her food!

10. Goan Imports

Nandini can tell you all about Goan food. What? You don’t know what Goan food is? Then check her recipes blending Indian, Portuguese and Arab heritage.

Yet again, thank you so much Ema Jones to give me this award. I feel very lucky to have such amazing readers and blog friends!
