Spreading the Love Part II: The Addictive Blog Award

Over the last two months I've received three awards from my fellow bloggers, and I couldn't be more honored and humbled by all the love.  Thank you First, I've twice received the Sunshine Award (for spreading kindness and inspiration) from Judee at Gluten Free A-Z and Heather at Gluten Free Cat, second the Food Stories Award (for excellence in story telling) from Caralyn at Gluten Free Happy Tummy, and third the Addictive Blog Award (for interesting, creative content) from Minnie at The Lady 8 Home.  Now it's my turn to spread some love...and you know I'm always up for that.  In this post I pass on the Addictive Blog Award.  See here for Spreading the Love Part I (The Sunshine Award) and here for Part III (The Food Stories Award).  

Award #2: The Addictive Blog Award 
Thank you Minnie from The Lady 8 Home for the nomination!  

The rules for the Addictive Blog Award are: Thank the person who nominated you and link them back.  Share a little bit about why you started blogging.  Copy and paste the award onto your blog.  Nominate up to 10 other bloggers you think are addictive enough to deserve the award. This is a fun award to pass on to other bloggers.  It's a nice way to expand your blogging community, introduce your readers to new blogs, and of course, spread some love.  No pressure to continue on and nominate other bloggers.  But it's fun and always awesome to make someone smile.  

Why I started blogging:  I started blogging for several reasons: (1) to create a special place to keep and reference my recipes, (2) to share my recipes with others, (3) and perhaps most important, to connect with other people/bloggers struggling with disease and/or also living an alternative foods lifestyle.  

Here are my nominees

1.  Kathy from: Kathy's Table.  When I found Kathy's blog, I looked through all her posts.  It's a blog of great interest to me, as Kathy also has Crohn's disease and shares SCD recipes, but she also throws a few classic dishes in there from time to time.  Her love of cooking and healthy cuisine is addictive!  

2.  Dawn from: Cuter than Gluten.  Dawn is a new blogger, and just released a cookbook Culinary Creativity.  How exciting.  Her blog and recipes are very fun and creative and I look forward to watching her blog grow.  

3.  Zoe from: Z's Cup of Tea.  I just recently found Zoe (via Shirley) and I'm so glad I did.  Her recipes are dairy free, gluten free and SCD.  She's a super creative cook and I admire her passion for family and health.  

4.  Sarah from: The Cyclist Wife. Sarah is a local blogger and one of my friends.  I am nominating her blog because her posts are fun, amusing, and eclectic.  You'll find yourself reading post after post and smiling all along the way. 

5.  Allergy-Friendly Taste Buds.  Offers recipes that are free of: nuts, peanuts, dairy, sugar, gluten, citrus, eggs and soy.  WOW! Allergy-Friendly Taste Buds also highlights recipes from other bloggers, so I always find something new and great on her site.

    Thank you for nominating me! I am also wondering who designed the quilt for the other award logo? I am a avid fabric artist as well.
