Addictive Blog Award

I have received another award... and am very excited and honoured to receive it from Cindy at Cindy's recipes and writings and Nel at The Papercup Kitchen.
  I meet Cindy through Foodie Friends Friday and as I go through her blog, my thoughts is that my blog doesn't even come close to hers.  She is a professional cook and a freelance writer, I just throw things together and pretend that it is cooking and my writing is more rambling than writing.  So to get this award from someone like her is a great honour and Cindy I do thank you.  So, if you would like to see how a real writer and cook do their stuff, go over and check out her blog.  She has some wonderful recipes, articles on gardening and much, much more.
I have been following Nel  for  awhile.  She has some wonderful recipes and also photographs of those recipes on her blog and I also don't feel that I am in the same league as Nel.  It is a great honour that she nominated me for the award as she said on her blog ~~ blogging is addictive.  Hopefully in a couple of years my blog will be as wonderful as hers... so go over and check it out.  Nel, thank you from the bottom of my heart for this nomination.

And with any other award there are rules that go along with it and here are the rules for this award:
  • Thank the person awarding you
  • Share a little about why you blog and how the journey started
  • Paste the blog award on your page
  • Nominate 10 other bloggers you feel deserve the award
As many of you know, I have only been blogging for a short time.  My husband had always told me that I should write down my recipes as when there is something that he really likes, I have no idea what I did to make it so good.  I cook like my mom did, throwing in a little of this and a little of that. So now even though I still do that I pay a little more attention to what I do so that I can blog about it.  I also wanted a place that I could promote African cooking as the flavours in African cooking as wonderful.  Another reason for blogging is to share my story on my love for Africa and how the people and the culture are so unique and happy.  I hope that I can bring some of that to you my followers.

Now for the hardest part of receiving an award, nominating 10 other bloggers that deserve this award... I feel that all the blogs that I follow deserve this award not only 10 but here it goes:

1.  Basilmomma  

These are all great blogs and I hope that you will go and check them out.  While you are there let them know that I sent you.
            Til next time <3 <3 <3  Marlys


  1. Congratulations, you deserve this award. Thank you for nominating me as well.

  2. Congratulations, Marlys, and thank you for thinking of me.

  3. Thank you soooo much for thinking about me! You are most deserving of every award! It is funny because I started blogging for much of the same reason. My husband would say "you must make that again!" And I would go....ummmmm, errrrr. =]

  4. Congratulations on your award Marlys:)
    I had a very hard time learning how to cook from my mum because she cooks with no recipes. Try and ask her for exact amounts for any recipe!
    I think it is wonderful that you started this blog to change that


Please stop for a moment and leave a comment to let me know you have been here. I love reading all your comments.

I am sorry but I cannot accept Anonymous comments anymore as I am getting too many spam. I hope that you will comment with an ID user. Thanks for understanding.

I will not be accepting comments that have links on them. I will not delete them but because of google's stance on links I do not want to have any problems with my blog. Thank you for your understanding.
