Liebster Award



Hi guys!

I am so pleased (and quite shocked! to be honest…) that I was nominated for the Liebster Award.  I looooove food…and so far, I looooove blogging as well.  However, being that I’m such a newbie and have very few posts and followers, it was really quite a surprise when Taylor told me that she had nominated me for the award.  What an honor! especially from such a gifted writer…If you guys haven’t checked her out, please visit her page at…I know you would love her posts and my favorite characters Samson and Mona 🙂

So for those who are not familiar with the Liebster Award (like myself until up about last week :P) it is a way of connecting bloggers, new and old, so that we can help build and discover each others page…what a cool idea 🙂

Here are The Rules :

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  2. Copy and paste the Liebster Award badge to your post.
  3. Nominate 10 new bloggers.
  4. Answer the 10 questions the person who nominated you asked you.
  5. Create 10 new questions to ask the bloggers you nominate.
  6. Notify the bloggers you have nominated by leaving them a comment on their blog.

OHHHH so many, many more talented bloggers, and food photographers out there…wish I can nominate more…

My Questions for the nominees:

  • What made you decide to blog?
  • What do you think is your most important blogging tool (except for the internet ;p)?
  • Who is the most influential person in your life?
  • If you were only to rely on one thing, do you enjoy food that looks good or smells good?
  • When making decisions, do you go with your gut or do you like to research every detail?
  • What is your favorite past-time, other than blogging? (I’m borrowing this from Taylor :))
  • What was your first project?
  • Was it a success or a failure? Either way, what did you learn from it?
  • What was the most important decision you’ve made so far?
  • What was your most favorite project?

Peas Romaine Calm’s Questions:

Why did you start this blog?

~I wanted to have a place where I can chronicle my baking projects.  Initially it was just something that I wanted to be able to share with my family, especially my kids when they got older, but I was lucky to find other bloggers out there who have visited and appreciated my musings.

What is a great memory from your past?

~ Oh, there’s really way too much that I can’t even begin to decide which one to write about.  I have selective memory :p I remember tons of happy events and forget about everything else

If the sky’s the limit, what would you like to do next?

~ I would like to be able to open my own bakery business someday…but at this time, I think I’m spread out too thin to be able to focus on such a big project…

Are you a planner? Or are you spontaneous?

~ I am both actually…is that possible?  I like to plan for important things or things where other people will be affected by my actions…For myself, I like being spontaneous and I guess “flexible” is a better way to describe it.

What makes you smile?

~ Nice people make me smile.  Seeing that there’s goodness in a lot of things, in a lot of people, out there makes me happy.

What was your greatest failure and what did you learn from that?

~ Hmmm, I can’t say it was a failure…but not taking the time when I was younger to really think about what I am passionate about, and to go for it.  I learned that sometimes, a bit of a risk might be necessary to get what you want in life.

What do you do in your spare time? (besides blogging😛 )

~ I love reading…and spending all day watching movies with my Hubby…working on some projects with our monkeys (a.k.a kiddos)…and of course baking 🙂

Favorite place you’ve visited?

~There’s lots of places that I’ve visited that I liked a lot…probably Japan being on the top at the moment.

What are your favorite sweets?

~Anything  with dark chocolate and ice cream 🙂

If you were stuck on a desert island and could only have 3 items what would they be?

~ Just 3??? a picture of my family (I’m assuming, I’m alone in the island?), something to make fire with, and my cellphone (hope there’s WiFi hahaha j/k)…although quite frankly, I don’t think I’ll survive too long on a desert island :P…if it’s a DESSERT island then count me in 🙂

Thanks again for the nomination…and hopefully you guys can visit all the other bloggers that’s been mentioned here.

Til next adventure
