Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Kreativ Blogger Award


It is always a surprise and please to receive a blog award! I am very honoured to be presented with the Kreativ Blogger award. The award is very much appreciated! Thank-you so much Charlotte of Canning Jars Etc. for nominating me for this award.

Charlotte lives in Iowa, USA. Her blog focuses on canning information and recipes presented in a lovely, down home style. Her love of canning shines throughout her blog. Please take a moment to stop by and say hi. I'm sure you will enjoy her blog as much as I do. I will mention that she already took a couple of things I would have used on point 4 (follows). Hmm, I think we may just be kindred spirits!

Seven things about myself that people might find interesting:

  1. My family is my priority.
  2. I've been a nature lover since day one so being eco-friendly is extremely important to me.
  3. I am a chronic multi-tasker. Sitting idle is not an option for me.
  4. Even though I cook most days, I cook more when I'm stressed! This seems to suit my family quite nicely :)
  5. I'm a techo geek who loves to experiment with anything to do with technology.
  6. I do a lot of genealogy research in my spare time and can now trace my family back into the early 1500's. I'm a stickler for detail in my research so primary documentation is critical.
  7. Academically my area of expertise is medical genetics. I hold four degrees and firmly believe in life long learning .
I nominate the following bloggers to receive the Kreative Blogger Award:
  1. Maggie author of A Taste of Both Worlds
  2. Daily Cute
  3. Leanne author of Tired Mama
  4. Emm (Mandy) author of Emm in London
  5. Cyn author of Creative Canning
  6. Wanda author of 1 Blogs and 2 Sides
  7. Cooked From the Heart
