So Nice!

Not just one, but two blog awards have been bestowed upon Chez Loulou in the last couple of months.
It just has taken me a little while to acknowledge them!

In April I was nominated by Anne of Anne in Oxfordshire for the Chatty Blog Award.
Am I chatty? Yes, sometimes I am. Especially if I'm waxing lyrical about cheese and wine or venting frustration about bureaucracy!
Merci Anne!

I would like to send this award to:

Then a couple of weeks ago, my friend Betty at Cuisine Quotidienne nominated me for the Arte y Pico award.
Thanks for thinking of me Betty.

This award comes with a few rules...

The terms of the award are:

1. You pick five blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also contribute to the blogging community, no matter what language.

2.Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.

3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and the link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.

4. Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of Arte y Pico blog, so everyone will know the origin of the award.

So, how do I choose from all the interesting and creative blogs out there?
  • I'll start with Paula who writes Half Baked and contributes to the organic Waterberry Farm in Alabama's website. I would love to attend one of their scrumptious looking Farm Dinners. Next time I'm in Alabama, I'm reserving a place!
  • Andreea at Glorious Food and Wine always inspires me. I love reading about her travels and think she takes beautiful photographs.
  • Kevin Week's Seriously Good oozes food passion.
  • Danielle is a woman after my own heart. She has that gardener's green thumb that I envy and is learning to make cheese! Her site, Savor Culture, shares her cheese making and small farming adventures.
  • Finally, Katie at Thyme For Cooking. I admire her down to earth and witty writing as well as her delicious, easy and healthy recipes.

Congratulations to you M. Loulou!! You so deserve this duo of awards. And I am not sure how I missed this post.

I am so honoured and delighted to receive this award from you!! SO nice of you. And, yep, I am chatty. I seem to be growing chattier by the day. I wish I could keep my posts to 25 words. But, I can't.;-)

Thanks so much for the award and for reading my chatty blog.
Merci! xo

You deserve tons of awards!

You are most welcome! I'm enjoying reading about your current journey to France.
Your blog is the perfect recipient for "The Chatty Blog Award." :)

Thank you for your kind words. I think you deserve the award for all of your great cooking and lovely insights into life.

You and your cheese making are inspiring! I was happy to honor you with this award.

You are the perfect choice for the award. Too bad your blog has gone quiet for (hopefully) the time being.

You are very welcome. I think your farm looks like a wonderful place.
