TRH One lovely blog award 7 Fun Interesting facts

  2. I started my blog in October 2015, ± 1½ years ago.
  3. I feature a Share and Inspire Others! Monthly Recipe Exchange, so feel free to participate on this platform as we have a different theme every month.
  4. In addition I have An open Invitatin to all Bloggers where I showcase your social media connections and where you can meet and greet fellow bloggers.  This is for all bloggers, not only Foodies. If you’re interested you can view the current list of bloggers @ Social Media Participants and I look forward to your comment and to connect with you.
  5. In my wildest dreams, I never ever would have thought it possible to have one of my own recipes to feature in a magazine.  A FB follower from Texas contacted and invited me to submit a recipe to her Neighbors of the Woodlands magazine.  You can view the post on my blog: Es’s Family Famous Chicken Pie
  6. When not cooking up a storm or baking, I love to be outdoors in Nature.
