The Liebster Award


Thank you so much to Bianca and Sara from The Friendly Fig for nominating me for the Liebster Award!  I’m so honored and share the love by nominating 8 more bloggers below. I had a blast answering these questions! Here we go!


  1. Answer the questions given and then come up with 10 new ones to ask your nominees.
  2. Nominate 8 other blogs, let them know you have nominated them and put a link to their blog in your post.
  3. No tag backs.
  4. Nominees must have under 500 followers (i adjusted this from 200) on any platform.
  5. You must tell all the blogs that you nominate that you have nominated them.

10 Questions from The Friendly Fig:

1.)  What is your favorite healthy snack?

Salad!  I’m a total salad nut and would rather eat salad over sweets (my husband thinks I’m an alien).  Here’s a great round-up for salad inspiration.

2.)  What is your favorite GIF or meme? [We all have one! Share it!!]

Hilarious pinterest fails…nailed it!

3.)  If you could have given your younger self advice, what would it have been?

Go to culinary school.  That’s a legit school, you would love it!

4.)  What is your favorite inspirational quote?

In nature nothing exists alone.  -Rachel Carson

5.)  What television series do you binge-watch?

Sherlock, Doctor Who, The IT Crowd (the Brits know what’s up)


6.)  How would you describe your personal style?

Nonexistent, confusing, can it be pajamas?

7.)  What is your favorite sound?

My son’s guttural laughter, it’s loud and sweet and instantly brings joy to my ears.  And the POP! of a cork from a bottle of Prosecco…good things are sure to ensue after that lovely sound.

8.)  What is your spirit animal?

Without a doubt, a turtle.  I’m slow, the kind of slow that earns you nick names, the kind of slow that’s caught on home video of all your siblings leaving for the bus stop on the first day of school and you’re left behind still getting your lunch box and back pack ready while your dad says “…and there’s Jaime, always the last one.”

9.)  If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

Sing, I’ve always wanted to be able to sing.  My younger sister and I are known in our family as the tone-deaf sisters.  Yes, it’s that bad.  Also, I’d love to be able to bake bread and ferment like a pro (and have the patience for it).

10.)  What songs are included on the soundtrack to your life?

Anything Ani DiFranco, forever and always.

I nominate:

lucky star anise


Aprons & Stilettos

monster monster

Recipes from our Suitcase

Spiritual Foodie

Penny Veg

1 veggie at a time

1.)   What’s the story behind your blog name?
2.)   What is your morning beverage of choice?
3.)   How many different locations (states or countries) have you lived in?
4.)   Are you a morning person or night owl?
5.)   If you had to choose only one country’s cuisine to eat, what would it be?
6.)   What would your signature cocktail or mocktail be called?
7.)   What is your favorite social media platform (facebook, twitter, instagram, etc.)?
8.)   If you had to choose a different profession, what would it be?
9.)   What is the best blogging tip you’ve learned so far?
