Excellent Hearts

The very funny Kelley not only invented a prize, she gave it to me! But it seems to bear a word of explanation. If you look at the "less than three" symbol sideways, it looks like a heart (and if it doesn't look like a heart, try the other sideways). Anyway, Kelley hearts me, and I heart Becky and Becky. Because, you know, they're both named Becky. Well, really because they're great. Go, see for yourself.

Her Grace passed along another E for Excellent. As I went as poking through my feed reader, I realized that I have twenty-nine posts from one blogger marked "save as new". In other words, I'm using Bloglines to bookmark recipes from Smitten Kitchen because I want to try nearly everything Deb writes about. She's a terrific food writer, with great taste and a wonderful eye. So, E for Excellent to Deb and Smitten Kitchen. Check her out if you haven't already. And come to think of it, I think that this afternoon is a perfect day to make some lemon squares.

Incidentally, are you on my blogroll? Should you be? Do you want to be? Let me know.

Congrats! Well earned awards for someone excellent.

Don Mills Diva said...

Congratulations on your awards - well deserved!

andi said...

Thank you for explaining that award to me. I've been seeing it everywhere and had no idea what it meant.

Oh and thanks for giving me new blogs to read (that Smitten Kitchen is spectacular!) because we all know I don't read nearly enough. :)

(Oh and something is wonky with the comments section, so I hope I didn't just leave this comment 3 times).

Becky said...

Yay for hearts! Oh, how I loves me my hearts!

Thank you so much! Soon as I figure out how to put this on my site, I'll be sure to. But don't hold your breath. I've met algae more adept at technology than me.

Beth said...

I just checked out Smitten Kitchen...YUM!

KC said...

Well-deserved awards. And I was pretty happy to figure out the <3 on my own, like a proper dork would. It's like how I get excited for figuring out the riddles imprinted on the Dora popsicle sticks before anyone else at the table.

Oy, I need to update my blogroll. I use bloglines to read blogs, but I have a blogroll on my site that never quite keeps up with what I am actually reading. I'll get to that soon, really.

letitiah said...

oh man, i should get one of those blogroll things, apparently. i'm so 2003.

Victoria said...

Woot - I'm on your blogroll! I keep trying to do a roll for me to keep up with, and haven't gotten it all figured out. Ack.

Your blog is indeed excellent!!

Janet said...

Congraulations! And thanks for the link to Smitten Kitchen. I am such a foodie.

lilypotter said...

Yes, we do less-than-three you! Oh, and I don't know if I'm o your blogroll yet? I, like Kelley, am not sure if I'm cool enough yet.

Julia said...

Well deserved. I nth the "we all <3 your blog too." :)
