I’d like to thank Holly from Writing Straight for this award which she gave me ages ago, but life got in the way and I forgot to respond. Ooops, sorry, that’s not too sweet. So since we’re in award mode at present I thought I’d just do this for fun and I’d use it to tell you about some non-genie blogs I follow (even though some are also genies). To make up for my tardiness I’m throwing in a few extra. Did I mention my great grandfather Melvin was a pastry cook and confectioner?
Rules for this award include: Thank the super sweet blogger who made the nomination, Nominate a baker’s dozen of other bloggers (below…), and answer five questions:
- Cookie or cake? Cake! Orange Coconut, Chocolate Rum….
- Chocolate or Vanilla? No contest – chocolate. Vanilla doesn’t do it for me.
- What is your favourite sweet treat? Lemon Meringue Pie
- When do you crave sweet things the most? All the time but especially when I have a bad headache.
- If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be? Honey?
And for the sweetness award, I nominate this baker’s dozen (plus a few) of super-sweet blogs:
