Little did I know....

When I started this blog, little did I know how much fun I would have. Little did I know either how much work it would be. Fun yes, but a lot of work too! Little did I know also how many friends I would make on the blogosphere. And finally, little did I know how many people would read my blog and little did I know that I would get some blog awards too!
This award comes to me from my good friend Val over at More Than Burnt Toast. In my opinion, Val's blog is a Brilliant Blog and she is pretty near awesome too. So it is very humbling indeed to be given this award from her...
Brilliant Weblog is a prize given to sites and blogs that are smart and brilliant both in their content and their design. The purpose of the prize is to promote as many blogs as possible in the blogosphere.

Like everything in life, there are rules for this award. The rules are pretty simple.
When you receive the prize you must write a post showing it, together with the name of who has given it to you, and link them back.
Choose a minimum of 7 blogs (or even more) that you find brilliant in their content or design.
Show their names and links and leave them a comment informing they were prized with ‘Brilliant Weblog’.
Show a picture of those who awarded you and those you give the prize (optional).

I think there are so, so many blogs out there that are worthy of mention and some that deserve this much more than I do. In the spirit though of passing this award on, these are my nominations.

Jenn the Leftover Queen - One of the first food blogs I started to read and someone who has now become a close friend
Meeta from What's for Lunch Honey - an inspiring photographer and food blogger who has also become a dear friend
Tanna from my Kitchen in Half Cups - someone who always has a kind word and who runs a great 'ship' when it comes to the sea of blogs
Breadchick Mary - what can I say! Her blog is superb and she Mary has taken me to new heights with her friendship as well as her skill in breadmaking.I can now bake bread and in no small part thanks to her.
Anne from Cooking with Anne - a brilliant blogger, mother, wife. Truly an amazing woman.
Elle from Feeding My Enthusiasms - another of my early food blog buddies.
Courtney from Coco cooks and Nikki from Nik Snacks - two fellow bloggers that are frequent visitors and who have their own awesome blogs!

So there you have it. Yes, Yes I know that I picked eight but what are you gonna do, shoot me?? Little did I know how difficult it was going to be to just pick seven. And little did I know how many of you I wanted to pick but the list would just be too long.

Most of all though, Little do I know how little i really know....

Dear Dharm,

Thank you! It has been fun blogging with you. I'm honored that you would choose my blog when there are SOOO many good ones. I'll have to think carefully about choosing. If I hadn't gotten this from you, you would have been on MY list!

And well-deserved, I might add.
I so understand about the fun and work part. Little did I know, either!

Oooo Dharm you are so kind. Thank you so very much for this! Please excuse my tardy response as I've been out of internet range for way too long now.
Thanks so much for this. You've put me in totally wonderful company!
