The wonderful Rachel from The Essential Rhubarb Pie gave me a Sisterhood Award a bit ago. How great, because I do think of her as a Sister Blogger. We started blogging less than two weeks apart and somehow, and luckily for me, we found each other. I take these things very seriously, so it took me some time to think about who I wanted to pass it on to.
I have some pretty great bloggers on this list, with some newish and some oldish blogs. Each blogger lets us into her cooking and real life in a way that’s interesting and often encouraging and inspiring. That's true for Rachel too!
The award is for our blogging sisters who show great attitude/gratitude.
These are my choices for The Sisterhood Award:
The Rules for the recipient:
1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate up to 10 blogs which show great attitude and/or gratitude
3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog, or sending them an email.
5. Remember to link to the person from whom you received your award.
Believe me when I tell you that Michelle is a darling gal and gives wonderful reports on lots of NY eateries on Taste As You Go. I love hearing what she has to say as she goes to lots of different fun events with her young (to me) friends. She never holds back if she’s disappointed, but she’s not overly snarky either. (I guess I’m trying to learn from her.) She has some lovely recipes, as well.
Bakerella is an inspired baker and a fantastic blogger. She went WILD with Easter treats, including many varieties of Easter lollypops. The sheep ones are the cutest things I’ve ever seen outside of real sheep. She did a series of riveting blog posts on visiting the the Pioneer Woman , which showed such admiration and, yes, sisterhood that she’s a natural for this award. I love that during a problem with her doughnut making, she wrote HELP in the flour.
Laurie’s blog, Dalla Mia Cucina, is a wonderful resource for original recipes. If we ARE what we eat, we also ARE what we cook. Laurie seems to be a really nice person from the way she writes about her recipes. Plus she must spend tons of time on her beautiful pictures, which make you want to jump right into the page and taste her food.
You can tell that Deeba Rajpal, Passionate About Baking, isn’t just passionate about baking. She’s passionate about blogging too. Her pictures, her baking projects and other cooking, as well, are imbued with an enthusiasm that she loves to share. She enjoys being part of the blogging community and I really enjoy her blog. You can find many of her pictures here too.
I love Catherine's blog, The Dish. She is a grand cook, contest-enterer and winner, and slightly kooky all-around fun blogger. Her pictures of hunky males compete with her food pix. I’m not sure which are more delicious.
Tracy is awesome. Maybe it’s her Rock ‘n Roll experience that equips her for success in cooking contests, but she seems to know how to put dishes together and make what people want. Her stage presence probably doesn’t hurt. She’s also a very caring mom and friend, which comes across beautifully in her blog, Rah Cha Chow.
