I have been awarded the SUNSHINE AWARD by the lovely Alison Hein from Mixer Upper whose blog and recipes I really love!!

Yes, I know, the sunshine award isn’t exactly a Saveur badge, but who cares..

Like a good old chain letter, I now get to pass on this award to 10 more blogs which I think are deserving of the title. Since these are blogs I like reading anyway, I am more than happy to take part in this game that has been invented for amateur bloggers like me who are not ashamed to increase their traffic by relying on some old fashioned linking, recommending and commenting.
