The Blog-aholic Award

blog-a-holic-award

For whatever reasons, I am inspired to respond to some of the wonderful blog awards from other bloggers in our wonderful blogging community.  I would like to say a great big “Thank you” to Miriam, from Israelisalad.wordpress.com who has graciously nominated me for the The Blog-aholic Award.

Miriam has a blog very similar to mine. A young American-Israeli mother, Miriam writes about cooking fresh, delicious and seasonal dishes on a budget in a small kitchen with limited time.  It is nice to know that there are other people who share my passion for healthy, all natural fast and easy cooking. Please check out her blog and show her your support. You will not be disappointed!

Here is the link to her blog:

I always think of blogging awards as a good way to practice team work and build esprit de corps. Miriam, however, has a wonderful way of describing blogging awards. She calls blogging awards “blogger tag,” as their function to increase site traffic. I like that explanation!

Good play skills are important. My mother always says that “recess” is the most important class at school. I guess I am “it.”

What is The Blog-aholic Award?

“The Blog-aholic Award” is an award created by Esme, The Recipe Hunter, for bloggers addicted to blogging with creative, ingenious and inspiring posts. They “mesmerize their followers with their posts, keep them captivated and riveted to their blog.” The Blog-aholic Award is also for bloggers who “Share and Inspire Others!” The Recipe Hunter (Cook & Enjoy)

Please also show your support to Esme. Esme is a leader in sharing, caring and playing “tag” with other bloggers.  The cohesiveness of our blogging  community is in part due to her (and naturally many others’) efforts.

Thank you Miriam and Esme!

Rules

  1. Put the above award logo/image on your blog
  2. List the rules
  3. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog (it can be to the post in which they nominated you or any other post or you can even link to their “About” page)
  4. Mention the creator The Recipe Hunter (Cook & Enjoy) of this award and please provide a link or pingback
  5. Write a post to show your award
  6. Share a link to your best post(s)
  7. Share 3 interesting and different facts about yourself
  8. Nominate 5-10 fellow bloggers, or more if you wish. Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide the link to the post you created.

Now that I am reading the award rules more closely, I am very humbled by this award. Frankly, I consider my blog to be very simple and homespun. My goal is just to organize my recipes and share them with others. I am so grateful to everyone for your positive warmth and support. I am always amazed at how friendly everyone is. Thank you all!

Here are my answers:

Rule number 6 is share a link to my best post.

The world of blogging is full of surprises. Unexpectedly, my most viewed post is Roasted Beets Without Foil. http://wp.me/p3GhIj-11Y

My post that received the most “likes”: My About Page. http://wp.me/P3GhIj-1

The next part of the award is to share 3 interesting and different facts about myself. I thought I would answer the following questions:

If money was no object, what would you do all day?

I am great at keeping myself busy and productive!

If money was no object, I would devote myself to my children and community, including this wonderful blogging community.

With unlimited resources, I would love to go back to school to become a nurse practitioner.

I would also love to follow my passions and spend more time advocating on behalf of people with special needs and those with mental illness.

However, I could also see myself continuing to work. I am blessed to have a meaningful job which I enjoy. My patients are awesome!

What are your hobbies?

I love the domestic arts: sewing, knitting, and of course cooking.

Which would you rather do: wash dishes, mow the lawn, clean the bathroom, or vacuum the house?

Out of the 3 choices, I would rather wash dishes. I am very particular about how I clean dishes. I think I like playing with water too. Yard work is not my thing as I am afraid of insects and worms. As for vacuuming, I always say, “there are cookers and there are cleaners.” I am definitely not a cleaner, but I admire and appreciate cleanliness.

Since I’m “it,” now it’s my turn to tag 5 more bloggers. 

In no particular order:

    I love it when people I admire get awards because it means that a) I learn a little more about them (no surprise that you are a cook not a cleaner but I wouldn’t have predicted the dishwashing!) and b) I have a nice little nest of new blogs to explore when I sit down for a little me-time in the week. Congratulations …. you are one special lady and you richly deserve your recognition 🥇

      Thank you for taking the time to read it! Everyone always thinks that I would like to garden, but I think the closest thing I do in that area is take care of house plants. (Speaking of which, how is your pig? That was a funny story!🐷)

        I’m in France for a few months and dreaming of that pig! When I return to New England (probably in July) I will be up to Maine in search of it like a piglet on a truffle!! All is good and I do so much enjoy seeing your posts …. blogging is a lovely pastime, I think and I did love that you said if you had countless riches you would spend them on family and community to include this one. Very very generous spirit you have.

        It’s OK … I have it. WordPress can be quite frustrating at times!

        As it turns out when I checked all the messages I had sent (including the one you are responding to) I had no record of them. But people have replied so they must have gone through. Most frustrating!

        Yaffa wants to be a princess. She has been talking about it non stop. Raizel has informed me that we need to give out junk and stop making such healthy shaloch manot. Too funny! What about you?

        My mother’s Yurzeit is on Taanis Ester, so I always do a “breaking-the-fast” event in shul. My days of handmade costumes are far gone, and my daughters-in-law prefer store-bought stuff. I think I am getting two princesses, one queen, and a rock star in terms of girls, and my grandson’s costume is a big secret.Giving out junk sounds like fun for kids and some extra parnossa for dentists afterwards.

        That’s funny! I am not against candy, just artificial dyes, flavors and preservatives. My niece was born in Purim, so it’s also a birthday party. Fortunately, I never forget her birthday.🎈🎁
