The “Liebster Award”

A big Thankyou goes to Debbie LaCroix  A lovely Mum of 2 who awarded me the Liebster Blog  Award.  Just click on her name to visit her blog.

Liebster  is a German word, meaning dearest or beloved, but it can also mean favorite. The  idea behind the Liebster Blog Award is that it is given to bloggers who have  less than 200 followers in order to create new connections and bring attention  to these wonderful blogs!”

The requirements are add the award to your blog.  thank the giver with a link back to them.  List 5 bloggers and let them know they have been given an award by leaving a comment on their blog.

Hope  that your followers will spread the love to the blogs you’ve spotlighted.

I also have to share 5 facts about me….mmm …

1.  If you didn’t know before you will now and in a post coming soon…I am a lover of potatoes, you name I’ll eat them cooked anyway, especially mashed.

2.  I once dressed as Snow White for a whole day at work.

3.  I can make the best Pavlova’s  …. my grandmothers recipe.

4.  And for those who don’t know, I also bake and decorate wedding cakes, beside my normal job.

5.  Love travelling, stayed in an orangutan reserve, ridden an elephant, held a snake, and eaten frog.

Now the bloggers I have chosen to receive the award,  mainly because they seem new and interesting, I hope you will head over and check them out,…….

    Thank you so much for the award! I have really enjoyed getting to know you and the rest of the PPBF group. It has been a most enjoyable experience for me!

    I’ve never had Pavlova! I will have to look it up now and see what exactly it is. I am a potato lover also! We just had twice baked tonight. YUM! And decorating cakes is something I have always wanted to try. I’ve created ones for family, but I would love to take a workshop someday.

    • Oh my Loni, you have NEVER had Pavlova…. you are missing out lady!…lol. Tell you what Loni, ….I’ll come over for some of your potatoe bake and you can come here for cake decorating lessons…… hows that? I have photos I can show you somewhere..if you like.

  5. Catherine Johnson says:

    Thanks so much Diane and congrats yourself. Snow White would be great for a school visit! Love your interesting facts Diane, have a great weekend 🙂

  6. Thank you! I love potatoes too. My husband fixed a new version of a baked potato the other night. Sliced with cheese on top, then baked. Delicious.

  7. Thanks so much, Diane! We have potato lovers over here in my household too — especially in the form of french fries and tater tots. 🙂 Your facts about the wedding cake side business and the travel adventures are very interesting…I’m going to have to think real hard to come up with my five facts.

    • Your welcome Margaret. French fries, tater tots anyway….. I’ll eat’em…lol. check out my travel page for more interesting holiday titbits…. sure to bring a laugh or two. Good luck!

  8. Heather says:

    Congratulations! Your travels sound like they were wonderful and I would eat everything you listed except the frog. I would love to see photos of your cakes!

    • thankyou Heather….. lol… yeah well desperate times calls for desperate measures…… I had crickets and coakroaches offered to me, but declined……. there is a limit!…lol. Okay so I am going to have to do a post on cakes sometime I can see….. thanks for popping over, come back soon.

  9. snagglewordz says:

    Congratulations! Enjoyed reading your five facts and think you might have to share the pavlova recipe (unless it is top secret of course!)

    • Thankyou Tracy,glad you liked my facts, I have done something similar to this last year and thought I better think of some different facts…lol. I can see I am going to have to do a Cake post some time soon….lol. Then I can share the recipe for the Pav. You could of course pop over and I’ll make you one…lol.

  10. Congrats! 🙂 Two questions:
    What kind of snake?
    Did you eat the frog on purpose?
    Erik 😉

  11. Thankyou Erik … oh I have no idea what kind of snake it was,….. just that it was big and it was many years ago….. The frog is normal food in Cambodia along with crickets, cockroaches etc…. but I didnot eat those. just the frog and it taste like chicken. Not bad.

  12. Okay, imagining you with very dark hair is too difficult even for my overactive imagination.

    Congratulations on your Liebster Award!
