Weekend Edition: Welcome Spring

This week we saw Spring arrive. Can you believe it?  I am loving the pretty blossoms all around.

I sampled some Banana Bread beer. Have you ever heard of such a thing?  I cannot say it tasted of banana but it really did smell like banana bread.
Philadelphia and Bistrot La Minette

I also got nominated for the Versatile Blog by three lovely bloggers. This is so sweet and truly means a lot.

Thanks to the ladies of The Cooking Actress, Whipped, and Oishiis Treats!

Wondering what the Versatile Blogger Award is? “It is a great way to introduce different bloggers to each other and to promote quality blogs that awardees and their readers may not have discovered otherwise.”

There’s also a few guidelines for what to do when you receive the award:
  1.  Thank the person who gave you this award.  
  2.  Include a link to their blog
  3.  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  4.  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.
  5.  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.  
  6. In the same post, include this set of rules.
  7. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.
Here’s the 15 amazing blogs I’d like to nominate for the Versatile Blogger Award!

  1. Sweet and Salty
  2. Healthy Foodie Travels
  3. That Skinny Chick Can Bake
  4. Flour Trader
  5. Baker Street
  6. Crunchy Creamy Sweet
  7. RavieNomNOms
  8. Cooking Healthy For Me
  9. NYCityEats
  10. The Spiffy Cookie
  11. Dinners, Dishes and Desserts
  12. Eat.Drink.Love
  13. All Day I Dream about Food
  14. Inside a British Mum's Kitchen
  15. Dulce Dough
And now seven things you don't know about me...

  1. I have milked a goat before.  Just once and once is enough.
  2. I was born in Iowa. I  lived briefly in Georgia before moving back to Iowa.  At 16 my family moved to Maine where I graduated from high school. I went to school in Pennsylvania. My first job was in Connecticut.  Due to this job I lived in New York for two years before moving back to Connecticut. Whew.
  3. My stint in Georgia gave me an incredibly thick southern accent which made me extremely shy when we moved back to Iowa.
  4. I do consulting work for colleges and universities across the country.
  5. I have extremely high knowledge of the best places to eat in the Atlanta, Detroit, Minneapolis airports.
  6. If I am in a bad mood the ultimate cure is a latte. 
  7. I have a type A personality to the extreme.
 Thanks again!
