The Versatile Blogger Award

Rita over at The Culinary Taste has awarded me a versatile blogger award – la ringrazio molto. I love Rita’s blog as I am in love with most things Italian. Here is my award:

and the conditions attached:

  • You must thank the person who awarded you by linking back to their post
  • You have to list 7 interesting things about yourself
  • You have to pass the award on to 15 other new or newly discovered blog

Please go and read Rita’s very interesting facts about herself – and here are mine:

  1. I have my birthmark in my eye – which means my blue eyes have a brown spot
  2. I was paralyzed in my right arm for nearly a year, and I use my left hand for some simple tasks
  3. I have never cooked a Greek dish in my life and I suppose sometime soon I should try one
  4. I have had a passport since I was a couple of month’s old and my first trip out of South Africa was the Lesotho – knowing my mom, she still has the blankets from that trip
  5. I have a brave palate (according to my friend Cams) and I think I would try almost anything
  6. I live in a converted garage and my kitchen is tiny!
  7. I have an amazing husband who plans our annual overseas trips years in advance, and so I can tell you that in 2012 we are going to Scotland, and in 2013 we are going to Italy!

Passing this award on is not going to be easy for me as I love all the blogs I read, these are not new so I hope they count. I am not giving reasons as to why you should read these blogs – I do because they are great!

  1. The Only Cin
  2. The Complete Cook Book
  3. Unlimited Inspiration
  4. Homemade Heaven
  5. Browniegirl
  6. The Intrepid Foodie
  7. One Perfect Bite
  8. Fired Up Cooking SA
  9. The Squashed Tomato
  10. Science, Sightseeing and Sustenance
  11. Confessions of a Hungry Woman
  12. Mangetout and Other Stories
  13. Sweet Artichoke
  14. My Custard Pie
  15. The Gorgeous Gourmet
  16. Indigo Girl

Earlybird has asked me to make another award – and so that is why there are 16 people on my list!

  1. Congrats on the award and thank you for giving me the award 🙂
    I can’t believe you’ve never cooked Greek food!!! Θα πρέπει να τεθεί αυτό το δικαίωμα αμέσως!
    (Oh, and maybe Italy sooner *grin*)

      1. A converted garage? That sounds great! Do you have pics of it?
        So, you’re coming to Italy in 2013. I can’t wait to see you!!!! We can cook something together! 😉
        Cindy, I’m waiting for you, too!! 🙂

        1. HI Rita – I will do a post with links to our garage so you can see where we live 🙂 If we are anywhere close to you in 2013 we will definitely get together!

  2. Thanks so much, Tandy! My first award, yay! Looking forward to passing the blog-love on 🙂

  3. Congratulations on the award and thank you for paying it forward to me. 🙂 I’m heading off to think of 7 things about myself.

    Don’ think my first comment went through – sorry if you receive a duplicate. 😉

  5. Congratulations on your well-deserved award. There will be many more to come. I also want to thank you for including me among those with whom you’ve chosen to share it with. I really appreciate that. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  6. I’m very honoured, Tandy. Thank you. But I’m afraid I’m going to decline it gracefully. Please feel free to replace me with someone else 😉

  7. Congrats to you and thank you. I’m honoured!
    Did you see MC tonight? Have you ever eaten brains? The idea is repulsive but then I’ve had sweetbreds so I wonder if they are much the same?

    1. We are very far behind with MC! Only just watched the elimination from the Press Club challenge 🙂 I have not had either!

  8. Thanks for listing all these blogs, now I’ve got a whole load more to follow 🙂

    Congrats on the award!

      1. Thanks! I’ve just started my new foodie blog this last week. I had a photo blog before but food is what makes me happy 🙂

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
