Ten blogs I love (a meme)

 Butterfly award

I’ve been given The Butterfly Award from Jeni, my fellow cochlea-phile (couldn’t find the word for snail-lover, so made one up).

Here’s da roolz:

  • post about the award
  • link back to the person that nominated you
  • place the award on your sidebar and then choose 10 blogs that you think are really cool, link to them, contact each person and talk about why you think their blogs are cool

Here goes:

Jeni at Heathen & Vegan: Jeni, you are so cool. You are such a creative cook, I am in awe! I love your blog pic with the fish-lips, it makes me laugh every time I visit. And of course, you see the inherent beauty in snails, like only a die-hard animal lover does. (I think we may have been snail-pals in a previous life.) AND you aspire to being a crazy cat lady, oh yeah!

Tracy at A Vegan for Dinner: My fellow Canadian gal, your sense of humour and speak-your-mind attitude have me LOL much of the time. I mean, if you don’t know what the f*** hominy is, why shouldn’t you be able to say so? Your creative ways with seitan would convert the most die-hard carnivore. Who else but you could come up with a recipe for vegan t-bone steak?

Monique at The Happy Veganarian: You have such interesting and unique recipes, reading your blog inspires me. Who woulda thought to wrap sausages in handkerchiefs for steaming! Your food photos are awesome, the no-bake cakes and gingerbread muffins look so amazingly delicious… I can’t wait to try them. Now how about a recipe for vegan Dutch pancakes, heehee?

Kristin at Beans & Greens: All your recipes are so full of vegetable goodness… you are like some kind of veggie goddess, spreading the wonderfulness of vegetables throughout the interweb. You also see the delicousness that is roasted Brussels sprouts, how many people can say that?

Becks at I am not a rabbit: Well for starters, you love my home country so much you actually got married there! Like me, you wonder why no one on this side of the pond knows about pumpkin pie. I love your animal vignettes. And your recipe for vegan cinnamon rolls… droool…

Bethany at Spotted Devil Cat: Anyone who shares their home with as many furry children as you do AND who fosters dogs is ace in my book. Your food always looks sooo good, and I love reading about your cooking classes and restaurant meals. And of course, your fur-children photos are endearing.

Tami at vegan appetite: Your recipes sound delicious and I love all the great food photos you post. If we lived remotely close to each other, I’d be wrangling for some dinner invites, lol. And you not only made homemade soup, you make homemade soap… how cool is that!

wingraclaire at Here’s What You’re Missing: I love all the photos you post of your town and family/friends… and of course, your food. I am so envious of your homegrown tomatoes, ours all had blight this year. I reckon you’ve got a few decades of recipes to share with us all…yum!

Zoey (or rather, Zoey’s mum) at Zoey’s Kitchen: You named your blog after your cat. You are resigned to your fate as a crazy cat lady (who do not, contrary to popular belief, have to be single). Your pancake recipes make me drool onto my keyboard. Need I say more?

Monique at Mosetta Stone: I love your kitchen creativity and The Great Cheeze Project is going to be one fun ride! Thank you for sharing your world. Oh, and anytime you wanna pop over for some vegan fish & chips, you just let me know!

Phew, now that’s a lot of vegan love!
