Kreative Blogger Award

I got my first blogger award!! Thanks to the lovely Anita at Leave Room for Dessert for nominating me. Her blog is one of the ones I tend to check every few days as she has wonderful recipes on there!

The Kreativ Blogger award comes with some rules:
1. You must thank the person who has given you the award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who has nominated you for the award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
5. Nominate 7 other Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on the blogs to let them know they have been nominated.

So onto the seven things you may (or may not) find interesting about me:

1. I'm not a vegetarian but I often cook vegetarian meals throughout the week...possibly to balance out my burger obsession on weekends!

2. I always say I'm not a dessert person and yet lately I've really gotten into baking and now I bring baked goods to all sorts of outings and occasions.

3. I am obsessed with learning all about foods and their nutritional makeup...and I get super excited when I read little facts such as this is good for you because...or to ward off this illness eat's strange but I love learning all these facts!

4. My dream kitchen includes a pantry that will be kept at a certain temperature all throughout the year so that my ingredients stay fresh for longer, a wine fridge/cellar, a little vegetable/herb garden, and a plethora of gadgets that will allow me to whip up all kinds of fancy meals for dinner parties.

5. I spend most of my freetime reading food blogs, watching the Asian Food Channel, checking out recipes, or reading books written by chefs, food critics, or food writers.

6. When not doing anything food related I enjoy reading sappy chicklit, watching comedy and suspense series(such as How I Met Your Mother, Family Guy, My Name is Earl, CSI, Bones, 24), traveling, and hanging out with friends.

7. I'm not a major party animal so I generally don't go clubbing but I do love meeting friends for drinks at a pub/lounge every so often...but for me the perfect gathering involves it at a restaurant or at someones home.

And the 7 Kreativ Bloggers I am nominating for this lovely award, for their very enjoyable blogs(these were difficult to narrow down and in no particular order):

1. Sophia from Burp and Slurp
2. Dharm from Dad ~ Baker & Chef
3. Boo_licious from Masak - Masak
4. Emily from Curly Top
5. Rebecca from The Nomad Gourmand
6. FBB from Fat Boy Bakes
7. Meena from A Whiff of Lemongrass

And a big thanks to everyone who spends the time reading and commenting on my blog. I really do enjoy hearing from you all and receiving such lovely support.
