Thank you, Laura!!!!

I was shocked when I logged onto my blogger account and saw that Laura of she's cookin' now! had sent a blogging award to my blog:

Laura's blog is just downright yummy to look at, her posts never fail to entertain, and she does it all with four little ones to boot. I am truly honored that Laura would think of my blog when passing out this award, especially considering that she included me in the company of blogs that I count among my very favorites. Thank you, Laura!

Now, I get to pass this award on to ten more of my favorite blogs!

Anne of Anne Strawberry - Anne's gorgeous presentation and truly stunning photography always makes me really, really hungry.

Pamela of Cookies with Boys. Pamela is racking up the awards lately, and she deserves every one of them!! Her blog is always a great read. Plus, we both bake while dodging tiny people, so I feel a kinship.

Andrea of Nummy Kitchen. Andrea's profile description has got to be my hands-down favorite ever. She loves cookbooks and small kitchen appliances, and I believe she may have coined the phrase "unitasker." Her margarine confession is a true classic.

Amanda of Beckett Bakes It. I am lucky enough to work with Amanda in real life and count her as a friend. Amanda is the one who introduced me to TWD, and if it weren't for her, I never would have known how much fun baking and blogging could be! Amanda is a real giver, and she bakes something for everyone's birthday in our large law firm practice group. I think it is time for her to change her blog name to "Bake It Like Beckett," but she's too humble.

Teanna of Spork or Foon? Teanna never fails to make me laugh. I particularly love how she is horrified by all the butter that Dorie throws our way, yet continues to bake with abandon. I can SO relate!

Natashya of Living in the Kitchen with Puppies -- I love Natashya's fabulous pictures and reading about the wide range of culinary delights that she prepares . . . in the kitchen . . . with puppies.

Em of The Repressed Pastry Chef. (1) I love her blog name. Because aren't we all really just repressed pastry chefs at heart? (2) Tell me you don't look at Em's pictures and just want to stop what you are doing and go bake. right. now.

Jamie of My Baking Addiction. I am such an amateur photographer -- I don't even know how to begin to stage my food for pictures. So I get inspired by photography like Jamie's (although I still can't pull it off!)

Lori of Luscious. Lori and her co-conspirator, Darling Chef, cook and bake it all, and have helped me steel my resolve to break out of my kitchen rut.

Mike Spoodles of Ugly Food For An Ugly Dude. Mike's profile says that he's "card player, gambler, scoundrel. You'd like him." I like him.

Well, what are you waiting for? Go read these great blogs!

Thank you, Laura, and congratulations to all!
