The Sunshine Award!

The Sunshine Award is an award given to blogs you feel are “positive, inspiring and creative.”   I was very happy to be nominated recently for this award by a fellow blogger, The Not So Creative Cook.  She has a really great blog with the most wonderful recipes.  Oh my gosh, I get hungry just looking at all those delicious recipes  You should definitely stop by her blog and check it out.  No need to open a cookbook, you can find a yummy recipe for every day of the week.  She is definitely a most creative cook!  Thanks so much for the nomination Jhuls!! I am truly honored to receive this award!!

Part of accepting this award is answering questions chosen for you by the person who nominated you.

Here are my questions …

  1. What food/ingredient(s) you always make sure you have?   Milk is always on the top of the list.
  2. What is your favorite dish to cook? My Son’s favorite, Chicken Enchilada Casserole and mine Spaghetti and Meatballs.
  3. What is you favorite breakfast food?  Pancakes!
  4. What is/are your other interest/s aside from cooking and baking?  Photography and Design
  5. What is your favorite comfort food?  Chocolate
  6. What is the first thing you’ve cooked or baked? As a little girl I would always help my mom bake by stirring the ingredients, etc.  In HS Home Economics I remember we made an Omelet.
  7. What is you favorite thing from your kitchen? Okay, you can name three.  My Keurig Coffee Maker,  my blender and my large chopping knife I got from Cutco.
  8. What is the latest thing you bought for your kitchen?  A cute little plaque to hang on the wall that says “Home Sweet Kitchen”
  9. Who inspired you to make your blog?  No one really, Myself I guess.
  10. Any advice to other new bloggers?  Blog as often as you can, have fun with it!  If you have trouble writing, write as if you were writing for just you, not for anyone else to read.  If you want to meet people and have visitors then visit as many blogs as you can and see what other people are doing, get out there and be social.  Participate in challenges.

  1. Yihee! Thank you so much for participating and answering my questions. It means a lot. ❤ Pancakes? That will be one of my favorites. I guess we all started with eggs or noodles. 😀

    Congratulations again and enjoy the rest of the weekend. 🙂


    1. I just realized that I didn’t link up this post to you. I am glad you saw it! You are welcome! Thanks so much again for the nomination! I think participating is fun and I am always so happy to be nominated, that someone thinks of my little blog. I love the question and answer part. The hard part for me is finding blogs that haven’t been nominated that I know of. Yep eggs or noodles. I remember thinking, well I already know how to make an egg …could we start with something else? Of course the sewing part of the class was something else! Uh!


  2. Hi Arl, and THANK YOU so much for nominating me!
    I’ve really enjoyed your blog so it’s a great compliment –
    I hope I did you justice in the answers I’ve given to your questions,
    and look forward to reading more of your blogs.
    Best, Emma. 🙂
