      Thanks Lynne! Thank you again for nominating me, it was a fun challenge. You are welcome 🙂 I really enjoy your blog and it is always nice to be able to recognize my fellow bloggers 🙂

    Well…Antonia what a lovely surprise! Due to time restraints I am unable to fulfil the requirements. Running 8 web sites, continuing recipe submitter to Tasty Kitchen.com/member (over 1,375 + recipes posted) 5 children, hubs, large beachside home, cooking and baking constantly, you know the drill as a parent and homemaker. I would like to share seven things with you (just cause I can). On a special note all 8 web sites are award free blogs.
    1. Nothing is more important to me then my family!
    2. My love of foods began at an early age of 12 y.o. working side by side with my Father at his Restaurant here in sunny Florida. I was soon recruited to work also with my Uncle (Dad’s older brother) at his Restaurant across town. Which I gladly did until attending College. My love for foods even then did not waiver.
    3. I love sunsets and value my evening walks on the beach alone to reflect, meditate and enjoy the beauty that surrounds me everyday since childhood.
    4. I love art and music (I play the piano)
    5. I still own a red convertible auto
    6. My new and old friends are equally as important in my life
    7. I adore Smoothies! (Daily)
    Thanks for letting me share a few things with you my friend. Cheryl xo

      Thanks Millie! My husband came up with the idea to push their names together to name my site. It makes it extra special 🙂 I have always been a big Dylan fan and just had to use one of his quotes 😉

    I love your fun facts Antonia! I also enjoy watching Chopped on Netflix. I love how creative each contestant has to be with the basket ingredients each round. I just watched an episode where they had to incorporate something chocolate flavored, which was very interesting for the appetizer and entree rounds!

      Thanks so much Heather 🙂 We recently finished watching all of the ones on Netflix, and my 5 year old convinced me to buy a season. It is worth it to watch it with him 🙂 The chocolate episode is a lot of fun, and even interested my daughter, because of the chocolate 😉

    Antonia, many congratulations for your award! You sure deserve it!
    Why do kids love chopped so much? Her Majesty is obsessed with it. When I cook something and she thinks it’s not my best she says to me: “Mom, I’m very sorry but you have been chopped”!!! Personally, that show just gives me anxiety! 🙂
    Thank you so much for nominating me! I truly feel honored! Awfully kind of you to think of me! 🙂

      You are so kind Francesca! It is funny…my son is obsessed with it. I wasn’t expecting someone his age to like it so much. That is so funny about Her Majesty…I bet it does give you anxiety and some laughs 😉 You are very welcome my friend 😀
