Most Influential Blogger Award


I felt super honored when Arl at Arl’s World gave me this award! She thinks I am influential? Me?! The newbie both to cooking and to this blogosphere?! Wow! Huge, Huge compliment Arl! I almost don’t know what to say…

I think this is the very first comment I ever received from Arl, “I don’t know how I have missed all these lovely, yummy recipes of yours! Everyone I look at is something I would love to eat. I am now following so I do not miss anymore of them. I am glad you no longer hate cooking! :-)” As you can tell from what she wrote to me, she is so super sweet! And she really doesn’t miss my recipes…she often stops by, which I am super grateful for!

If you don’t know Arl yet, you should get to know her! She is a woman of many interests….one of them being cooking. Check out her Strawberry Bundt Cake with Cream Cheese Glaze! Yummy!! She also loves nature and photography. I loved this post of hers where she captured some great shots of animals!

Thanks again Arl! It is a pleasure to get to interact with you in this bloggy world!


So for fun, I thought I would look up different synonyms for “Influential.” These are from

  • Authoritative
  • dominant
  • famous
  • important
  • leading
  • persuasive
  • prominent
  • significant
  • strong
  • affecting
  • big-gun
  • big-wheel

  • inspiring
  • instrumental
  • major-league
  • meaningful
  • momentous
  • moving
  • name
  • potent
  • substantial

Hmmmmm……Some of these were pretty funny! Big-wheel?! Really?! Hahaha!

So, these are the synonyms that I think I am sticking with as a description for this award for those of you who I am giving it to: Inspiring, Instrumental, meaningful, moving, and touching! 🙂

(A side note here…Nancy, Jhuls, Julianna, & Angie…you four would be getting this from me as well if Arl hadn’t already nominated you! 😀 )
