I’m a Winner :)

Yesterday, CJ at Food Stories nominated me for the Food Stories Award for Excellence in Storytelling!

I love reading CJ’s daily posts with recipes that correspond to random national food holidays. Her blog has tons of great recipes that are low carb while still being delicious! The photos are incredibly crisp and clean, it makes me want to set up a little photography studio in my kitchen 🙂

Per the award requirements I have to share one random fact about myself: I rarely find a food that I don’t like, especially in the dessert category. However I HATE black licorice. This aversion dates back to a sleepover I went to in elementary school during which I won a huge box of Good and Plenty. My mom rarely let us have candy as kids (see my Simply Me page) so I ate the entire box that night. And promptly threw it up. Since then I can’t eat the stuff, even the smell makes me a little queasy.

My five nominees are:

Kath at The Nut Kase

Becca at Becca’s Green Kitchen

Nick at Frugal Feeding 

Jessica at Kitchen Addiction

Stephanie at Modern Christian Woman

Now I am off to take a morning walk with a friend, and then more packing!!

    What a great post, Erin, and a lovely nomination you’ve received. Too bad about your licorice aversion. I love Sugar Free Jelly Belly’s and prefer the popcorn and licorice flavors.

  2. So cool! Congrats on the nomination!! 🙂

  3. Congratulations on the nomination and thank you for your nomination of me! It made my day to read your comment! Also, I can’t stand black licorice either. Although, my aversion doesn’t come from such a traumatic experience! 🙂

  4. Gotta love CJ! Glad I found your blog…I’m in NC, too!! (also not a huge fan of black licorice)
