Procrastination is Bliss

I have a million things to do today: some of which includes vacuuming, cleaning out my closet and sweeping our porch. It should be no surprise that instead of doing any of the above, I’m sitting in front of my computer typing this post. I figure if I need to be productive to make myself feel better, I can at least take care of some miscellany items for my blog which have been sitting in my to-do list for much too long.

So, without further adieu, I'd like to give a big shout out and thanks to Donald from Mr Orph's Kitchen for passing along the Arte y Pico award. If you're hungry, check out his site and see how long you can last without eating anything! His photography and recipes are to-die-for. This award goes to a site for creativity, design, interesting material, and contribution to the blogger community. So, this is a biggie and obviously very much appreciated!

I'd like to pass this award on to a few blogs that I’ve greatly been enjoying these days. Being as wonderful as they are, I’m sure there’s a chance they’ve received this award before, but it’s like collecting Oscars…or designer purses. Can never have too many, right?

  • Emiline @ Visions of Sugar Plum tempts me with her beautiful photography and divine looking desserts all throughout the week. She definitely posts some amazing creations that I haven't spotted anywhere else!

  • Grace @ A Southern Grace is absolutely hilarious, and a fabulous cook to boot! She makes me hungry everyday.

  • Lori @ The Recipe Girl is a fellow SD Blogger, so of course she deserves a shout out! She has a ridiculously vast collection of recipes and I find myself bookmarking nearly every one of them.

  • Sophie from Flour Arrangements is a blog that I've recently become addicted to. I love her delicious looking baked treats and she throws in some great looking main dishes for good measure.

Also, Prudy from Prudence Pennywise passed along the “E for Excellent” award. Her site truly is excellent! Prudy has a knack for making scandalously good food on a budget. Lord knows, I could use one of these budget things, so thanks, Prudy! I’d like to pass this on to:

  • Diva @ The Sugar Bar who has amazing and inventive recipes, beautiful photography, and a sassy attitude. What more do you need? Head over there! She’s also tagged me for a meme, so its on my to do list!

  • My Cake Wardrobe, a blog which makes me gain 10 pounds just by viewing. Delicious desserts, to die for really.
  • Elle @ Elle’s New England Kitchen whose site is really a great inspiration for me. I often visit when I’m hungry and just don’t know what to cook.

  • Bridgett @ La Bella Cook who always tempts me with her Italian treats. She’s always making something different and inventive. Go check out her Panettone Bread Pudding if you don’t believe me!

Off to go conquer the day! Go visit these blogs if you need a little procrastination yourself.

PS...Tastespotting is back!!!
