spreading the cheer with the Liebster award

Yummy note: First, thanks to the Hearty Appletite for passing this award along at

So what is the Liebster Blog Award- Well, from what I could tell from previous award winners, it appears that the Liebster award originated in Germany or atleast the word did. The word “Liebster” is a term of endearment; “beloved person.” The aim of the award is to bring attention to blogs with fewer than 200 followers.  

These are the rules for accepting the award:

1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Post the award on your blog.
4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the Internet - other writers.
5. And best of all – have fun and spread the Karma!
6. Right click on the award image to save it to your computer and then upload to your blog!

Here are some blogs I frequently check out to see what they are doing that I am passing this award to:
For the last few months, I've been involved in a group recipe post called the Secret Recipe Club, and I've been running into this cute blog on and off called The Jey of Cooking. Jey is part of my monthly group that posts and always has such great looking stuff. You should stop by and pin a few of her recipes to try and make!
I think this is one of my first foodie blogs that I began to follow, called Flamingo Musings. Renee's blog is full of wit and wisdom in her posts, besides some great recipes! From what I have read, I would have to guess that her jams are just Freakin' fantastic. :)
Toddling around Chicagoland is an informational site from a mommy blogger that gives great info for parents on the go in the Chicagoland area. It is a kid tested and approved blog as it is all about Sarah's family and their experiences while on their adventures out and about. Such great reviews and tips can be found here, plus upcoming activities for your kids.
I found this blog through a friend's family blog, and have enjoyed reading Shelley's blog for awhile now. She typically uses very accessible ingredients and recipes that are not too labor intensive, which is awesome.
This blog is a creative blog that my friend Nicki has been updating for awhile now. She does some adorable paper crafting here! You should really check out her cool designs and ideas.


  1. Hey - thank you so much for the award! :) It is much appreciated!

  2. Hi Heather! Thanks so much for the award! So sweet of you to pick ME! hehe One of these days I'll have to try one of your recipes!!
