    wow! that’s great ! thanks so much, what a surprise!
    Before nominating my 12 bloggers, I have to questions:

    1) is it possible to nominate bloggers who do not write their blogs in English?
    2) as far as I understood, it is possible to nominate non-culinary blogs, yes?

    thanks !

    I love all of the sites you passed the award on to! Thanks for sharing them with us. About the brownie. OMG! I will only use that recipe in the future. The only problem that I had was I used a 10″ spring form, so they came out very flat. I need to pick up the 9″one.

    Next baking project is the scones from Barefoot Contessa. I’ll let you know how those turn out, too.

    Thank you so much for my Sunshine Award which is rather fitting as today we have a whole lot of sunshine 🙂 I’ve been not-blogging for a while because we are moving to another county … although it feels like another country. This is just the incentive to get back to the keyboard 🙂

    There is no question why delishhh was awarded Sunshine … wonderful blog.

      Some Say Cocoa – Thanks for stopping by. Where are you moving?

    “The Nominees Are…” and other random flocculate | Sunflower Solace Farm — January 11, 2014 @ 4:35 pm

    […] In coming up with nominees to bestow the “Sunshine Blogger Award” I tried to do research on the origin and meaning of the award. There are other folks who do the same thing, and I found their blog post about nerdy attempts to track down the award origin and immediately felt a kinship with this blogger.  Perhaps I’m not such a weirdo after all; there are at least two people that have similar thought processes!  Her research  yielded the following quote from back in 2010 on someone else’s blog:  One is supposed to acknowledge fellow “bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.”  There is a word that didn’t even exist prior to my lifetime – blogosphere.   The oldest links that I could find were to Counting Coconuts and Delishhh […]
