A Blog Award for You!

The other day, I went along reading my daily blogs when I came along an award to me from ParisPastry--thank you, Danielle! 

If I could award it back to you, I would! In the meantime, I'll just wish I could spring into your kitchen when you make that old-fashioned chocolate cake.

Here's the way it goes: I get to send the award out to seven other blogs I really enjoy, and share seven things about me.

One - I am a compulsive raw-dough eater.
Two - I am finally out of school and looking for a job! Anyone searching for someone to fill a marketing position in Paris?
Three - When I was really young, I dressed up as a tiger. By putting streaks of black an orange marker all over myself.
Four - My sister and I go crazy over tiny dogs.
Five - I wish I had a green thumb, but unfortunately I have a lot of trouble keeping a plant alive.
Six - My favorite book is Aurélien by Louis Aragon.
Seven - I used to collect plastic bags. Yes, plastic bags. We've already gone over the fact that I was a strange kid.

And without further ado, I'm passing it along to seven blogs out of the dozens I truly enjoy reading every day:

One Perfect Bite - Great stories and a plethora of recipes from Mary
Cake, Batter and Bowl - Funny anecdotes and great food!
Bake in Paris - If I could buy myself photography skills, I would ask Kris if I could copy his.
Cinnamon Spice & Everything Nice - Reeni's multicultural recipes are definitely keepers.
3B's - A great tale of family life, baking, and having fun throughout it all.
La Cuisine de Mercotte - Fabulous French recipes, perfectly detailed and completely innovative.
A Southern Grace - Cinnamon and alluring close-ups of cake; what else?

Thank you all for making my mornings filled with great stories, recipes, and also for making my stomach rumble even right after breakfast!

Reeni said...

Congrats on your award Lucie! Thanks for thinking of me! And also for sharing all of those tidbits about yourself - I love tiny dogs too! I want one so badly but I'm afraid my 24 pound kitchen Cat might eat him!

Great blogs you've introduced us to! We share the same obsession with raw dough. I can't help myself around it :(!
