I was delighted to learn Kathy who writes http:/www.bakeawaywithme.com/ has nominated my blog to receive The Food Stories Award for Excellence in Storytelling. Since Kathy and I share the belief that serving good and well-prepared food to family, friends, colleagues and even hungry strangers, creates life’s memorable moments, I am especially honored to have been chosen by her. I have been interested and inspired by her participation in Gourmet’s 50 Most Influential Women in Food. Merci beaucoup, Kathy.
Now I get to share this award with 5 fellow bloggers!
Food Stories is pleased to present the Food Stories Award for Excellence in Storytelling, a fabulous nomination that anyone can bestow on their fellow bloggers.
Here’s how it works:
1. The nominee should visit the award site (http://foodstoriesblog.com/food-stories-award/) and leave a comment indicating that they have been nominated and by whom. (This step is so important because it’s the only way our judges will know who is being considered for the monthly presentation).
2. The Nominee should thank the person that nominated them by posting & including a link to their blog.
3. Share one random thing about yourself in your blog post.
4. Select at least five other bloggers that you enjoy reading their stories and nominate them for the award.
5. Notify your nominees by leaving a comment on their blog, including a link to the award site (http://foodstoriesblog.com/food-stories-award/) .
Food Stories will put together a team of judges to review all nominees and to select a Food Stories Award Winner for each month. More information to come on what fabulous opportunities await for those lucky winners!
2. Thank you Karen! I have been smiling all evening.
3. For more years than I will admit to, I have been a Volunteer Wilderness Ranger, representing the United States Forest Service in Aspen’s Rocky Mountains. The job of a volunteer ranger is to help restore, monitor and manage the wilderness that we Americans are “loving to death.” I hit the trails two or three times a week in my”fashionable” Ranger outfit and Stetson (no gun) to help those seeking the solitude of the wilderness have a good experience. My office is the beautiful outdoors. The best job I’ve ever had. That’s why it feels especially good to be back in Aspen, after an eight-year hiatus due to family health issues. Back on the trail again.
4.Not an easy task. I’d like to nominate and share the good work of the following:
