Yummy? Me?

Wow, I'm chuffed! My first award, thanks to Zainab & meedo, is from two sisters who have an extraordinary blog, Arabic Bites.

They have received this award, rightly so, many times and decided to share it around. "Yummy blog award is the award given to a blog with most yummy recipes/photos". Thanks ladies, I'm honoured!

Now I have to nominate my "favorite yummy-licious :) dessert(s)that I have ever prepared/eaten". Hmmmm.....I'm not big on desserts, but occasionally I have the odd sweet tooth craving. So here goes:

1. Caramel creme, the only dessert in my repertoire when I was a teenager ( I must make them again!)
2. Good old fashioned apple pie that Mum makes. I love her sweet pastry.
3. Cherry Ripe chocolate bar. One is never enough!

As fate has it, I've been really "into" Middle Eastern food lately, partly due to the fact that my daughters gave me a gorgeous Emile Henry Tagine for my birthday/Mothers Day. So I'll be scouring Zainab & meedo's site for some interesting recipes and techniques. They make fantastic bread too, so pay them a visit soon!

There are so many "yummy" blogs around worthy of this award, it's difficult to choose only a few.

Burcu's Almost Turkish Recipes Because I love Turkish food
Nic's Cherrapeno Her desserts and sweets are to die for
Michael and Cindy's Where's the beef? Vegetarians with an enormous array of yummy foods

Thanks again, Pam! I've passed on the yumminess here. :-)

I have a weakness for Cherry Ripes, too. They were probably the food I missed most while studying in America a few years ago. I consoled myself with Reese's peanut butter cups!
