Exciting stuff, the Versatile Blogger Award!

What a fantastic way to start a Monday. I came in this morning to discover I have been given the Versatile Blogger award by the two wonderful Melissas of ‘Queen bee eats for a day’. It is great to know that foodie peers read and enjoy the recipes I’ve been posting!

I am extremely honored to have received this award, and it was very unexpected.  So, I thank the Queen Bees from the bottom of my heart for this honour! Thank you ladies!

The Guidelines for accepting this award are:
– Thank the person who gave it to you.
– Tell 7 things about yourself.
– Pass the award on to 15 bloggers whom you have recently discovered, and think are fantastic!

 

7 Things about Lollcakes

1. I am a South-African girl living in Sydney, with an accent that no-one can decipher anymore…

2. I have a mass of curly blonde hair, and due to this Frank calls me ‘Cheesehead’

3. I’ve been baking since I was 7ish, and have my first cookbook to prove it

4. I don’t like mixing sweet and savory flavours, very unadventurous of me!

5. I am a naturally highly strung person, so Frank is my saving grace and my most tolerant audience

6. I am trying to encourage my defacto niece’s early love of cooking (she is 6). My aunt gave me my first cookbook, and I am hoping to have the same positive (?) influence on Sophie

7. I think about food all the time. ALL THE TIME.
