Love from Zesty!

The Premio Arte Pico was bestowed upon me by by blogging buddy ZESTY! His name is Cory, but he is my ZESTY COOK! You have to check his blog out because it ROCKS!...and I'm not just saying that because he gave me an award!

This award originates in Uruguay and is called the Premio Arte Pico from a blogger who makes dolls. You can visit her site here.
The rules of the Premio Arte Pico:
1) Pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award, creativity, design, interesting material, and also contributes to the blogger community, no matter of language.

2) Advertise name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.

3) Each award-winner, has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.

4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of “Arte y pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5) Share these rules.

I am passing this award onto the following:

Project Domestication: If you want cupcakes...check out this blog. She makes cupcakes, she reviews cupcakes and finds SWEET decorations for cupcakes. Maybe it is because she is from Utah too or because she frequents Williams Sonoma as much as I do...but I dig her blog!

Tracey's Culinary Adventures: Tracey had me at her Guinness Milk Chocolate Ice Cream . You got to love a blog that mixes our favorite Irish Beer with chocolate and cream. Great blog, Tracey.

Chocolate Shavings: I have a tendency to make things I perceive as 'safe'. Chocolate Shaving's has opened my mind to what 'safe' really is. Bacon wrapped scallops, pea puree in risotto, salmon tartare... I would normally pass over these dishes in a cookbook...but I want to try them after seeing them at Chocolate Shavings!

Sweet Sensations: Talk about good energy. You enter this blog and the background cheers you up. Then you start reading the recipes and start drooling. You gotta support the military wives! (I'm one too!)

Life, Lightly Salted: Self described"...lightly salted and slightly jaded... an aging punk rock princess" has a fun, dark blog with GREAT food! She has a signature dish called, 'Death by Garlic'...this recipe is how I would take my life with food. :) She is also doing her first giveaway...check it out.

I can't believe this! Thanks so much....from one military wife to another :) I truly appreciate it, considering none of my recipes are original...but I have tons of fun in the process! I'm excited to share the award! Have a great weekend!

Congrats on the award! I can see why Zesty chose your blog! My husband and I cook together too - and he is more daring with original recipes, but I'm getting braver every day.
