Richard of surprised me and nominated me for a Sunshine Award which I gladly accept. I am always in awe of home cooks who are so dedicated to food and creativity and remcooks is definitely one of them. Maybe because I cook for a living, and am not always willing to come home and cook some more, I envy and admire those who spend so much of their time coming up with recipes, cooking, photographing and then sharing.  So the 10 blogs I am nominating for this award all have one feature in common: dedication to a craft, a cause or just their blog.

The Rules of the Sunshine Award are 1) Accept the award; 2) post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link; 3) answer the questions below; 4) pass the award to 10 other blogs providing links to their blogs; and 5) contacting them to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

7. what is your passion? – Writing, reading, cooking, loving – oh, I should have limited myself to one?

  1. Well this is funny. I looked up your blog so I could nominate you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award and then I started reading your blog about you receiving the Sunshine Award. (Congratulations by the way.) As I’m reading on down the page, I saw the name of my blog. You nominated me! Thank you. You don’t have to contact me (unless you really want to) because this has turned out to be an all day thing and is a lot of work selecting and notifying people and writing about it on my blog! LOL! I guess it would be easier and a lot quicker if I would stop reading the blogs and looking at the pretty pictures. Enjoy your award Claudia : – D
