The Adorability Factor of Some Food Blogs

Ivy, the big-hearted host of Kopiaste...To Greek Hospitality, and one of the three founders of BloggerAid, the initiative to raise money and awareness of global hunger issues, recently bestowed me with An Adorable Blogger Award, in recognition of the "adorability, cuteness and charm" of the Crispy Cook. I blush, I blush. Thank you very much, Ivy, or should I say, "Efharisto" in your native language.

Here are the rules for this award:

1) Include the award logo in your blog or post.

2) Nominate as many blogs which show adorability, cuteness and charm.

3) Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.

4) Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.

5) Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award.

I thought a little bit about whom to share this lovely blog award with in turn, and have some food blogger buddies to introduce you to below who I believe embody charm in their writing style, joie de vivre and interest in sharing their passion for cooking:

The Food of Love - Arlene is my upstate New York blogger buddy who cooks up a storm in her little cabin in the woods. You'll find some great Italian recipes and many enticing recipes from her huge cookbook collection.

Flour Arrangements - Sophie's got a beautifully-designed blog with wonderful gluten-free recipes, particularly for baked goods. Her wonderful photography will lure you in to trying some of her gorgeous recipes.

Duo Dishes - Chrystal and Amir win this award right off the bat just for their cute photo, but their fun, homey writing style and luscious recipes lure you back again and again. I tried their roasted kale recently and it was hard to believe something so decadently tasty could be so nutritious.

Absolutely Not Martha - A supremely stylish blog about la vida Gluten Free with plenty of fashion, photography, links, and cool information. Blogger Jackie also owns Vanilla Spoons, a GF gift basket company.

Celiac Teen - Lauren's a young Canadian who's learning how to cook and bake and doing it with a lot of style. Adorability factor is high here.

Please stop by and visit these Adorable friends and inspire them to keep on bloggin'. You'll be waylaid by their delicious recipes too, I'm sure....

Aw, shucks, Rachel, I'm blushing along with you. What a happy surprise to read your post and find such a darling award (was up to my eyes in quilting this week, so blogging took second place). I'm uploading my award right away and will post about it in a few days since our DB Challenge just went up. Thanks so much!!!
