Come on down!

I’m back! I’m feeling a lot better now, but I still have to limit my computer usage. Thanks for all your good wishes.

I’m conscious that Pam at (I will get these linky things sorted out one of these days), did me the honor of presenting me with this Arte y Pico award which I need to pass on.

The award originated in Uruguay, and is given for creativity and design, see for more information.

Here are the rules that accompany this award.

1. Choose 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and their contribution to the blogging community.

2. Each award has to have the name of the author and a link to his/her blog.

3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name of and link to the blog that presented her/him with the award.

4. The award winner and the one who has given the prize has to show the link of Arte Y Pico blog so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5. Show these rules.

It’s been very difficult for me to select five people as I would like to give this award to everyone who reads this blog, and to the authors of all the blogs I read, but I can’t, so it’s no use moaning about it. Without further ado, in no particular order:

Raquel of Kitchen Mysteries, for being such a lovely person, and for sharing her simple woman’s day book with us, and for the unusual delights (how to make rosewater), she cooks up in her kitchen.

Pam from for the love of cooking, because she really does love to cook. She gives us easy to make recipes, and her presentation is always impeccable.

Beth from Jam and Clotted Cream, who lives in the Duchy of Cornwall, one of the most beautiful coastal areas in England. Despite having a temperamental oven, she manages to create great dishes, and some lovely cakes and cookies.

Cheryl from Cooking, Dunkin Style, who loves to get creative in the kitchen, and her food is always beautifully presented.

Jeena from Jeena’s Kitchen, a fellow British ex-pat, who gives step-by-step instructions for all her recipes. She often features some great British favorites, and has a penchant for curries, which I also love.

Thank you so much Jan, for this award. It is my very first award and I much enjoyed passing it on to everyone else. I would like to thank all of the little people . . . the big people and the ones in between! LOL Much love - Raquel XO

Pam, don't be ashamed to admit that John is the chef in your house. Believe me, if Mick wanted the job he could have it. :-)
