Sharing The Joy- My First Award




   


   
    


  
  The Liebster Blog Award

Dear all, there are some exciting news I would like to share with you.
My Blogger friends Rakesh and Swikruti from kumars kitchen  (be sure to check out their awesome blog!)  honored me with a nomination  for the Liebster Blog Award.



        liebster2


Now I had some research to do. What is this award all about? A kind of Oscar for upcoming bloggers?
The Translation was the easiest part ( I'm a German native speaker) - Liebster means favorite in german. The Award is given to rising Blogs with fewer than 200 followers. It's an excellent way to connect with other bloggers, to get to know each other and direct some traffic around. 
Thanks again Rakesh & Swikruti from kumars kitchen, you rock.  



It wouldn't be an award without a set of rules and there is some homework to do.

The Nominees have to follow these 3 steps:

1. Answer the 11 questions the person who has given the award has set for you
2. Nominate 11 Blogs with a following fewer than 200.
3. Ask them 11 questions (same 11 questions to all Bloggers you nominate)  Keep in mind  that you  should nominate new bloggers and do not repeat bloggers that have been nominated already.
Make sure you tell them they are nominated.


These are the questions asked by kumars kitchen:

 
1) Who/What inspires you to cook such delicacies?
So many things: family and friends, a visit to the farmer's market, cook books, restaurants, visiting food blogs... even the weather or an aromatic smell from a bakery.

2) What is your all time favorite snack?
Fresh, ripe raspberries - it's heaven to me.
   
3)What do you believe is most important thing necessary for cooking?
Definitely the joy of cooking.


4) What will you cook if you need to serve it within 30 minutes?
Una bella pasta.


5) What are the hobbies you cherish except cooking?
Hiking, horse back riding, reading and writing.


6) What would you choose - Cheese or Chocolate?
Without any hesitation-chocolate
   
7) If given a pint of strawberries,what would you think of doing with them first?
Eating them all, natural and plain :)


8) What is your favorite sport?
Horse back riding and skiing (I didn't mention skiing above because I can't practice it while living in Peru).


9) Which method of cooking appeals to you most...like steaming/grilling etc?
I love baking. 


10) What is your favorite dessert?
Anything with chocolate in it.


11) What is the most memorable food you have had till date?...let us know when you post this on your blog :-)

The first dinner I prepared after coming home from our Honeymoon. It was a total disaster,  the kitchen was filled with smoke because I burned the meat, I forgot to put sugar in the dessert and therefore I would like to hereby officially nominate the "heroes of the kitchen", our friends who assisted at this mishap and ate everything without complaining.


I hope you understand why this won't be a blog entry :)
