A 'thanks'-cake for Spryte
With earnest apologies to fellow blogger Spryte for being so tardy, I am finally acknowledging the double awards she so generously bestowed on me several weeks ago. Fortunately, there's no deadline on how long a recipient can be remiss in showing her appreciation for her peer's thoughtfulness before the recognition is yanked for gross ingratitude. So without further delay, I dedicate my Sunday breakfast pancake to Spryte, with a late but very sincere 'thanks' - backward 'S' and all!
For those who have yet to visit her, Spryte's Place is a veritable haven of homecooking, from classic Coq au Vin to tender Kalua Pua'a (pulled pork) to Nana's Whoopie Pies. A blog that can offer everything from French cuisine to Hawai'ian luau to chocolate-and-marshmallow heaven is a site worth visiting again and again. I hope that you'll stop by and check out Spryte's delicious creations for yourself!
I'm deeply flattered to have received these awards, which were accompanied by guidelines - chiefly, that the recipient will pass them to 10 other noteworthy blogs. At the risk of disqualifying myself, I would like instead to extend them to all of you who devote such effort and creativity to your own sites and yet have taken the time to visit and support mine.
I will be updating my space to reflect the many wonderful blogs that deserve recognition for offering delectable recipes, beautiful photography, thoughtful insight and opinions, and constant inspiration. Most of these were found as I meandered through the food blogosphere, clicking on interesting links that led to another, then another and another . . . So please visit the sites already on my front page and on the ever-growing list of blogs I follow. I hope that they will lead you to discover new foods, new techniques, and new friends!
