I am excellent!!

I always new I was excellent, but its nice to hear it from someone else!

Ruth from Ruth's Kitchen Experiment has awarded me an "Excellent Award" which recognizes just how amazing I am. Or at least, how excellent this blog is. This is especially cool, because Ruth herself is in the running for an Irish Blog Award - a real honest to goodness award. Its so neat to read her blog and realize she's oceans away.

In turn, I get to pass the award on to five blogs which I consider excellent.

Erika of Bean's Bistro has an amazing sense of humor and it comes through in both her cooking and her writing. She is the founder of Homegrown Gourmet, which I promise to get back into. She is incredibly adventurous in the kitchen and she inspires me to try new things!

BriannaNichole of The Fabulous BriannaNichole loves to play with photoshop so she is my go to girl when it comes to graphics. I already told you she designed my kickass title, and if I need anything else, I know exactly who to turn to.

BellaGourmet of Bella Lately is from my cooking board I frequent. I loved her from day 1, far before she had a blog. Then she disappeared for a while. When she reappeared, she came back with a blog. How exciting! Now I can stalk her to my heart's content. And you should too - she's fantastic.

StephanieDeanne of The Good Life is one of my many twins. Married the same year, graduated law school the same year, looking for jobs at the same time. She's always going through the same things I am at the same time which makes her a great support/sounding board. Hopefully this award will get her back onto the blogging wagon since its been over a month!

Trisha of Twentysomething is smart, funny, and incredibly talented - which are my top requirements for friends both online and IRL (in real life). I'm lucky enough to have met Trisha IRL and she's just as funny as on her blog, and possibly smarter - it's hard to say since everyone sounds so smart online. Trisha is also one of my "celebrity blogger" friends since she has an alter ego on a prominent wedding planning board.


  1. Aaaawww, you're such a sweetie! I'm glad at least one person out there in good ol' cyberspace gets my sense of humor! I'm honored to be awarded by you- I think you're a riot too, and quite excellent in your own right. Thanks Kate!!!

  2. You are too sweet! I am so honored you like my blog, your's is one of my favs.

  3. Hi Kate!
    I was so surprised that anyone actually reads my blog, LOL! It's truly just a self-indulgence for me and a reference point to send people to for staple recipes. Thanks for the appreciation and just know that it's comin' right back atcha! ;)

  4. Blog awards are so fun! Congratulations!

  5. It's nice to see the blog world finds the same consensus we have.

    That you're pretty great and even better than excellent.
