4 Awards – I am still on cloud nine and so happy for receiving 4 *four* awards
Off the bat, I want to apologize to all my fellow bloggers for taking this long to respond! As you all know by now, I went self-hosted and it took a bit longer than anticipated due to unforeseen issues, but now that I am up and running (still minor tweaks to do), I thought it prudent to do this post.
A HUGE big and heartfelt to my dear fellow bloggers Jannat ; Crystal ; Dear Kitty and again Crystal for thinking of me and nominating EsmeSalon for the various awards.
A HUGE big and heartfelt to my dear fellow blogger Lorelle from A Mindful Traveller for thinking of me and nominating The Recipe Hunter for The Entertainer Blogger Award.
In September I was nominated for 4 different awards by Crystal Stewart Please my friends, do yourself a favor, hop over and meet and greet her @ CRYSTAL’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE as well as WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING)

Do you have a specific place for reading?
Bookmarks or random pieces of paper?
Can you just stop anywhere or must it be at the end of the chapter?
As I mainly read Recipe books, I will stop at the end of a recipe.
Do you eat or drink while reading?
I may have a cuppa coffee and home-made biscotti, as in the first image above, as I work in my kitchen/living area.
Music or TV while reading?
I love sound around me, but I do not listen to it, its background noise, so either of the above will work for me.
One book at a time or several?
With reading Recipe books, usually several as I will be “Hunting” for something in particular.
Do you prefer to read at home or elsewhere?
I will read anywhere as long as I find an interesting recipe.
Readout loudly or silently?
Silently, as I need to “digest” the recipe – pun intended!
Do you read ahead or skip pages?
When reading a novel, no skipping pages.
Reading a Recipe book, yes then I am on the prowl and hunt.
Breaking the spine or keeping it like new?
No, you never ever break a spine, but most of my reading nowadays is online.
Do you write in your books?
Yes, I do make notes in my personal and own Recipe books, especially when I try out and adapt/modify a recipe. This way I will be able to backtrack and rework it to fine tune the recipe the next time if needed.
This is the hardest part of all.
I invite one and all of you reading this post to accept this as being nominated.
Hope you will have fun, and participate.
