I Would Like To Thank The Academy


I'm going to tell you a dirty little secret about my personality. It's my major fault other than never apologizing to my husband.
By the way... Rich, I'm sorry for everything I have ever done. See the whole world read it and I said it out loud while typing!

My other little dirty secret is I don't take compliments well. In person or on the web. I always wait for the other shoe to drop, so to speak. I have been trying to avoid this post because I honestly felt I didn't deserve them. I am now going to explain these awards and hand out my own to some bloggers.

First off is the Arte Y Pico award. The Arte is an award which is for ‘creativity, design, interesting material and contribution to the blogging community’. I was nominated twice for this award. {because they are smoking crack!} First of all, I was nominated by Neen and Do from Post-Collegiate Cooking a Deux{it's only because I saved his life} and I was also nominated by Helen of Food Stories. She's British, I'm intimidated.

The second award is Blogging with a Purpose. This award is given by bloggers to bloggers that are blogging with a purpose. Ummm... yeah if that means blogging about beets and cream, kids, and crazy random stuff than that award is for me. Amy at Dinners for a Year nominated me for this award. Funny thing is that I would have nominated her for this award but she got to me first.

For the Arte Y Pico award, I would like to nominate...

Mayberry Magpie... her writing is outstanding, absolutely breathtaking. She has a strong and clear voice that makes me want to write like her.

Simply Breakfast... I don't know her at all but her pictures inspire me. They make you see something that's ordinary, like breakfast, into something peaceful and quietly fascinating. In other words...not me.

The Art of the Pig... Just check it out and if you are not inspired to make your own hot dogs, there is honestly no help for you.

cook eat FRET... she just kicks all of our asses.

bitchin camero... Melissa is awesome. I love the layout, look, and recipes of her blog.

cakespy... because cuppie is awesome!

For The Blogging with a Purpose award, I would like to nominate (because they keep me entertained, that's their purpose)...

Melissa from Alosha's Kitchen and Alosha... Buddah, Carl Sagan, and food. Need I say more?

Grace from A Southern Grace... because her comments section says {blank} good natured noogies. That makes me smile every time I leave a comment.

Heaven is Chocolate Cheese and Carbs... because she got me off my patuckus and forced me to make bread! and it was good! I am forever indebted, kiddo.

Pixie from You Say Tomato, I Say Tomato... thinking about you and hope you come back soon, the blogasphere isn't the same without you.

The Rules:

For the Arte...

1. Pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award with their creativity, design, interesting material, and also contribute to the blogger 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.

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

4. Award-winners 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 this award.

5. Display these rules on your blog.

For the Blogging with a Purpose...

1. Awarded parties must nominate five people who have not received the award.

2. The blogs that receive the award must serve some purpose.

3. In their post about the award they need to link back to this entry.

4. Awarded parties must post the award banner on their site. The banner must remain linked to this site.
Well there you go... I hope you are better at taking compliments than me because I truly enjoy each and every one of your blogs.

Congratulations on your awards! You totally deserve them! I know you're one of my favortite reads!
Plus, you throw a heck of a virtual potluck!

Meg said...

Congrats on your awards! And happy belated mother's day.

Also, I cooked chicken. From scratch. Well, I didn't butcher the chicken, but it was raw. And I put it in flour, egg, then breadcrumbs. And cooked it. And no one got salmonella or food poisoning. It was actually kinda good. So, thanks for the support. Maybe one day I'll try one of your recipes.

Congrats Queen Evil you are numba' one!

Helen said...

Ha ha! I must be the least intimidating person ever Krysta! I'm really nice I promise, just do what I say or you'll regret it ;-)

Congratulations on all the awards - you definitely deserve them...and more! Now, please accept my humble apologies for not showing up for your party...I was planning on it...had everything packed and ready to go and that's when the mister said, "Want to go shopping?!?" I mean, he might have well as told me he won the lottery and he was using a small percentage of it to buy a ONE way ticket for himself! I was THAT stunned! So of course I ditched the party and went shopping - I figure you might have another party but the mister will NEVER have another "out of body" experience like that! Hope it was a good one! Nan

melissa said...

krysta, you are the coolest thing ever. and you mentioned both my blogs? thank you so much! *blush* I'm not so good with compliments either. I get all awkward and stuff and feel like I'm an embarrassed little kid. hee. :)

I'll be sure to do a post of my own soon. you're the shizz. :P

melissa said...

and yes, I agree, claudia kicks all of our asses. ;)

congratulations and thanks again.

Mayberry Magpie said...

Now that you mention it . . . I have noticed that about you :-) You'd better shape up, you know, or we'll come and kick your butt AND compliment you!

To me, the best parts about both your blogs are that 1) You never fail to make me laugh. 2) Or to aspire to try something new. 3) Or to be a little more real. A Stepford wife you are not, even if you cook like one.

Okay, I hate compliments, too, but it would be disrespectful to you to do anything but pay it forward. So I'll get on those rules and git-r-done.


Mayberry Magpie

P.S. Stepford wives cook great, right? That was meant as a compliment :-)

White On Rice Couple said...

Congratulations! *insert our cheering crowd sound effect here*
ECM deserves many more!

Congratulations and thanks.

I've started a second blog, based on my wife's weekly menu.

Congratulations on your awards, no one deserves the acknowledgement more. I am still blushing that you gave me one as well. :)

Pixie said...

awww- aren't you just the best- thanks darling; i encountered a couple of 'weeds'; and just found out i have acid reflux which I may or may not blog about

Krysta said...

*pixie... i think you should blog about it. think of it like Gluten Free Girl... just Acid Reflux Girl, instead. i'm sorry to hear about this, want me to come over and kick it's ass for you?

Neen said...

Hehe, well if you don't take compliments well, then I won't throw more fuel on the fire by reminding you how awesome you and and how much I look forward to reading your posts! :) poke, poke.

Oh, and that is AWESOME that Katie is looking at Berkeley! What is she interested in studying? I'll confess, I'm a little intimidated: it's such a huge campus. I'm afraid of getting lost, both physically and in the falling-through-the-cracks kind of way. But that may simply be the pre-enrollment jitters. Do let us know when you plan on coming out and visiting! We'd love to meet you and dispense well-meaning college advice to your daughter (having just finished that exhilarating rat-race ourselves). Do gets there in mid-June and I arrive in mid-July.
