I'd Like to Thank Everyone

I feel somedays as though my life is lived among teetering piles of things to do. Projects to make, people to call, emails to answer, errands to run. Sometimes I just want to lock myself in my room with a glass of wine and a stupid movie. And sometimes I do. Those would be the days when you think, "Has Lynn fallen off the face of the earth? Is she ever going to post again?"

Well, the answers are no and and kind of. Kind of, as in this isn't a cute story post or a delicious recipe post. It's a housekeeping post. Some very kind bloggers have given me awards and I've been meaning to thank them publicly and pass on the awards. It's just that they keep getting lost in the to do piles. So here's a special post just for that purpose.

First, Sarah of Sweets by Sarah awarded me the Blogging with a Purpose award. Thank you so much, dear! I'm truly flattered that you had such kind things to say about my blog. I'm honored to receive the award and happy to pass it on to:

Mary the Breadchick of The Sourdough. She is such a wonderful resource for all things bready. Her blog is packed with information and recipes. Visit her site and get inspired to make bread.

Kevin of Closet Cooking. He says his meals used to be boring, but no longer! He posts his daily culinary explorations. Always inspiring, always tasty.


Happy Homebaker awarded me the Yummy Blog Award. This award is given to the blog with the most yummy recipes and photos. Aw, thanks! I'm so pleased when people enjoy my posts and are inspired by what I make.

The recipient of the award is supposed to list their favorite dessert ever eaten. That is just too tough. My favorite dessert is whichever one I'm eating at the moment.

I'd like to pass the award on to Recipe Girl, Peabody, And Then I Do the Dishes, Tartelette, and Sticky, Gooey, Creamy, Chewy. Each of them has an amazing, droolworthy blog, each post a death knell for any diet.

Also, be sure to check out Peabody's newest blog, Northwest Noshings. Featuring restaurant reviews, recipes, bar and brew tips, she showcases what is happening in the Northwest food scene.

Congrats on your awards, Lynn. You deserve each of them. And thank you so much for recognizing me! I'm very honored and flattered!

I know how you feel. I feel like I'm walking a tightrope myself lately. Sometimes, you just have to step back and recharge yourself!

Take care.

Congrats on your awards. I am horrible at keeping up with them. I will try and be good and do this one. Though it's a pretty hard task to think of my favorite dessert.
