My First Award!

Today I was talking to my husband about how I wish I could find ways to further promote my blog.  Through videos, auditions, cook-offs...

 My neighbor is the CEO of, and we have discussed ways of filming me (my personality is too big for words!) and maybe branching out into competitions.  I just want to get my love out there!

But today, although down and out and enjoying a bottle of Chardonnay, I took a moment from my rolling pin and store, and read my email.   After many pinterest emails and twitter updates I stumbled upon something wonderful.  To my surprise this was in my inbox:

Hi Aimee!
I just wanted to let you know that I awarded you the Liebster award... you can see the post on my blog.  I always love reading your blog and your fun and creative recipes are the best!  This is awarded to bloggers that have less than 200 followers and are up-and-coming!  Hooray! 
Now, its your turn to pass this award on to your favorite five up and coming bloggers.
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

How wonderful!  Maggie, I was seriously in my zone covered in flour (see below), tart shells in the oven, and wine in hand... all the while wondering if my blog finds others than myself and neighbors...

And today, you gave me that leap of faith!  Thanks so much Maggie, you are a rock star!! 

So to all you foodies out there, I'm on the watch, looking to give word to those 5 blogs that deserve that award!  You are so adorable, and I love your blog!

My apron was in the Laundry!!!  Ohhh Noooo!!!
