Thank you, Jen of Tiny Urban Kitchen, for awarding Candice Cooks the "One Lovely Blog" Award. This is the first blog award I have ever received! Thank you for your kind words and the recognition!
This is what Jen wrote: "Candice from Candice Cooks is a Boston local, just like me! I love reading her impressions of the local Boston food scene, especially all her photos of the farmers markets that she visits. Her posts are funny, warm, and personal. I love the little stories that she interweaves into her food posts."
In the spirit of spreading the blog love, I've listed a couple of blogs I enjoy reading. Here are the rules for the "One Lovely Blog" award:
- Link to the person from whom you’ve received the award.
- Nominate blogs you really like, preferably ones you have recently discovered
- Leave a message on the nominees’ blogs telling them of their award!
So are you ready for them? Here are some food-related blogs I look forward to reading on a regular basis:
Extracurricular Laboratory Notebook
One of the reasons I like to read Stephanie's blog is because she signed up for a CSA and I love to see what she creates from the fresh produce she receives each week. I like how she isn't afraid to try new recipes and experiment with ingredients.
Tiny Urban Kitchen
I stumbled upon Jen's blog after discovering one of her posts on Foodbuzz a little while ago. Then I secretly started stalking her on Twitter once I learned that she's in the Boston area too. She creates some of the coolest dishes (with such a creative twist) and her excellent photography skills make me drool on the keyboard. I also really appreciate her attention to detail when it comes to describing food, ingredients, and dishes.
In the Hands of a Chef
This is Chef Jody Adams' blog. She is a James Beard award-winning chef/owner who celebrates regional Italian cuisine interpreted with New England ingredients at her landmark restaurant in Harvard Square, Rialto. I am enjoying her blog these days because she and a few of her staff are on an awesome trip through Europe discovering different cuisines and regions. I've eaten at Rialto and it's such a wonderful restaurant so it makes reading about her travels that much more intriguing to me.
Anna the Red's Bento Factory
I came across this blog recently after someone posted a link to her "Where the Wild Things Are" food creation. I can't believe how detailed and precise her creations are - talk about having a lot of patience! I love how she breaks down the process of how she forms different things. It makes you look at food in a different way.
Enjoy perusing these blogs as much as I do! Thanks again for the award, Jen! :)
