Winning.... Versatile Blogger Awards

Good Friday my friends. This week has just been bursting with positive energy and love. My event Tuesday was a big success! People were raving about our food which was such fabulous news. I'm still beaming from the excitement As well the other day I was awarded the Versatile Blogger award from a very special and faithful reader named Julie - her blog is called Burnt Carrots and I'm also a big fan ;) Thank you Julie for this honor. 

The Versatile Blogger awards is a wonderful example of how the food blogging community really supports and encourages each other. We are all obviously inspired by similar things and each others way of presenting those things becomes a fresh way for us to see a topic from someone else's perspective.

I'm truly honored and thrilled to be the recipient of such an award. It's so nice to be recognized by your peers. Especially by peers who only know you by your work. As an artists we always critique works by saying "it really speaks for itself" This idea really resonates within the concept of a blogging award that aims to pay it forward.

Like winning Miss America or valedictorian, there are some things required by the recipient of the award. The Versatile Blogger asks for three in no particular order.
  1. Admit 7 things about yourself that many people do not know
  2. Pass on the award to 15 other food blogger (making sure to provide a link so others can find them too)
  3. Thank the person who gave you the award.
1. I'm actually a visual artist - classically trained with a Fine Arts degree from Concordia University with a Master in Painting. 
2. I'm highly allergic to cats however I can't bear to live with one or two furry friends in my home. 
3. Totally addicted to reality tv. The Real housewives of anything, Survivor, and obviously anything  on The Food Network. 
4.  I take a cooking class in every Country that I visit
5. A psychic once told me I'd be famous some day... I really want to be a brand! Books, shows, products you name it. 
6. Being naked is one of my favorite past  times - if you've ever gone on vacation with me you know this. 
 7. I direct a National Canadian sports show called The Rugby League Show on SportsNetworld

Now on to the 15 blogs I'd like to pass the award on to ... In no particular order

  1. Wanted to stop by and thank you again for the award. It is nice that you picked me out the many bloggers to chose from. Congrats on you receiving the award also. Hope you are having a great weekend.

  2. Thank you very much for choosing me.. I will have to have a think about this, I like to play my cards close to my chest LOL

  3. If you are addicted to reality TV check out hoarders...... but be warned that its highly addictive!! I think I lost about 3 hours of my life yesterday!! I also love the idea of a cooking class in each country. Genius!

  4. Thanks so much for passing this award on to me....sorry for the late response I just finished moving and finally got internet today. You can only do so much with your phone lol. I love your 7 facts.... and I also like that you take cooking classes in every country you visit. How do you set those up? I'm headed to Spain in February and would love to take a cooking class.

  5. S.V. Hope the move went well. So jealous of you going to Spain - I keep dropping hints to my husband that going to Spain for my 30th would be an awesome present ;)You should just google search private cooking classes in Spain - then find the one with the best reviews!

  6. Thanks so much for passing on the award. Love learning more about you too!

  7. Thanks so much for the tip... I'll look into cooking classes for sure. My hubby and I are taking the kids with us lol, you should tell your hubby to take you before kids it will be much cheaper. :) We do one big family vacation every year and one solo vacation without the kids, it is necessary to have one without children.


Thanks for your two cents. I love change!
