My First Blog nomination: Liebster Blog Award……it’s the big time people ;)

Just got nominated for the Liebster Blog award!! 

What a gorgeous surprise and a welcome distraction from my early morning shock and horror: Lucinda O’Sullivan’s Twitter was hacked, numerous vile and terrifying messages were flung far and wide amongst her followers, mine read: ‘Bad blog going around about you, seen it yet’, quickly followed by; ‘Change your Twitter password folks…etc etc’!!” Loving all this social networking but it’s not without its madness!

My nomination is all thanks to another fabulous foodie Rhoda Kirwin. Like myself, she’s relatively new to the game but absolutely inspired and driven by her obsession with all things food related; check her out  x

The Liebster Blog Award is given to recognize your favorite up-and-coming bloggers who have fewer than 200 subscribers, and that you feel deserve more. It’s a cool way to meet more folks and learn some new things…and generally expand your horizons, in my opinion.

Rules are:

  1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
  2. Reveal your top 5 bloggers and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
  3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.

And we would be delighted to nominate the following blogs:

Hey Pesto!   Yvonne Carty is a Ballymaloe trained cook and runs a thriving boutique catering business in Tullamore. I was delighted to see her beautiful and informative blog finally come into existence. She’s been in the epicentre of foodie Ireland for a while but her blog is relatively new. definitely worth a look 🙂

Dorcas Barry   Dorcas is a women after my own heart! In fact she was a huge inspiration to me when setting up my own blog, she’s Ireland’s health food guru and her blog is turning into something of an institution for people seeking to optimise their  health and well-being. Check out her website for classes and workshops!

Bia Ó Mo Chroí   Caroline is an avid foodie, crafter, reader and weight watcher! In her blog she shares some delicious recipes and foodie finds; her Roasted Red Pepper Soup is delicious and her reviews informative, be sure to take a look!

Mary Carney Creative Cooking   Now a house hold name all over Ireland, Mary Carney, winner of MasterChef and foodie inspiration for ever more has launched her website and food blog!! Having finally succumbed to her natural talent, Mary is pursuing a full-time career in the food industry. Her website features all the winning recipes from the MC final…Langoustine paparadelle and her Summer berry plate…num num and! Looking forward to all the recipes and insightful banter 🙂

Stitch and Bear   Joanne is another new arrival on the foodie scene and is mainly focusing on restaurant reviews. I was captivated by her most recent review of The Box Tree in Stepaside, she is definitely food writer to look out for in the future; honest and interesting! She does also include some beautiful recipes on her blog such as Sweet potato and Coconut Soup…a winter warm to look forward to.

    • Your very welcome Caroline- it’s great meeting more Irish food bloggers, I think it’s important that we recognise and support each other; as much as we love to write these blogs, they are dedicated and time demanding, by using these awards, we increase our readership which makes all this hard work worth while! Ill check in often to see whats cooking 🙂
