Friendly Friday and an Award


As I was catching up on the unread items in my Google Reader at the end of March, I was touched by a blog post by Brenda from Cre8tive Kitchen. She awarded me, along with seven other bloggers, the Friends Award! As a "self-proclaimed foodie" without the culinary training to really back up my obsession with creating new recipes and sharing them with the world, I sometimes wonder whether anyone is really reading what I write or whether anyone really cares.




Finding out that Brenda thinks enough of me and of Taste As You Go to pass the Friends Award onto me couldn't have happened at a better time. What one might assume to be a small gesture actually helped remind me that people are reading and are getting something out of it. Even if it's just a chuckle after looking at a picture of me trying to eat with large utensils.

So, now it's my turn to pass along the Friends Award to eight of my fellow blogger friends (they're not all food bloggers):

1. Mary from Oven Proof
2. April from The Hungry Engineer
3. Julie from Inspired Freelancer
4. Leslie from Leslie Loves Veggies
5. Mike from Man Eat Food
6. John and Lisa from John and Lisa are Eating in South Jersey
7. Sarah from Tales of Expansion
8. Meg from kleineKultur

I hope you all check out their blogs if you're not already loyal readers. And, thank you Brenda!

Happy Friday!
