Stylish Blogger Award!

What could be more stylish than a ballgown in Monaco?
I am honored to accept the “Stylish Blogger Award” from Bonnie at Chef in My Own Mind!  She is a fellow member of French Fridays With Dorie who enjoys the outdoors when she’s not busy cooking indoors.
The best thing about receiving this award is that I get to share it with 10 fellow-bloggers.  It is with great pleasure that I award the prestigious Stylish Blogger Award to:
1.  Reeni [& Moon] at Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice who has been a great inspiration to me.  She is enthusiatic, talented, and creative, and gave me a lot of advice as I was starting out.  Thank you, Reeni!
2.  Megi at Linden Tea who is a wonderfully talented baker and photographer.  She consistently supports & encourages my efforts.
3.  Mary at Delightful Bitefuls who I just started following and appears to have as big of a sweet-tooth as I do!

4.  Mardi at who I “met” through French Fridays With Dorie.  I enjoy her blog because we have a lot in common.

5.  Kathy at Food Lover’s Odyssey who is a remarkable photographer and loves Italy as much as I do!

6.  Letizia at Madonna del Piatto who owns a beautiful Bed & Breakfast in Umbia that I hope to visit some day!
7.  Peter at Souvlaki for the Soul who inspires me with his photographs and wonderful Greek cuisine.
8.  Lizzy at That skinny chick can bake!!! who already has this award, but truly deserves to have it again for constantly encouraging and inspiring me!
9.  Mary at One Perfect Bite who is such a lovely mentor and inspires me daily.
10. Trevor at Sis. Boom. [Blog!] who I also met through French Fridays With Dorie and whose book signing I hope to attend some day soon!  He is a talented chef and photographer and a truly gifted writer!
