Today I have learnt about another award for bloggers, the Blogger Recognition Award. I would like…
The Liebster Award.
I didn’t know about the Liebster Award until Crichton’s Co-Op ‘s blog nominated me for. It was a pleasant surprise to receive this nomination from such a wonderful blog. In the blog you can find many recipes (breakfast, brunch, cakes, cupcakes, desserts, dinner, drinks, lunch, pizza, sauces, gluten free meals and desserts, vegetarian recipes and sides) while there are some wonderful tips and tricks for your kitchen. A must follow!
But what is Liebster Award? This award exists only on the internet, and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. It has German origins – the word “liebster” has several definitions: dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. It follows similar principles as a chain letter, in the sense that it should be passed forward to a certain number of people.
The Liebster award was created to recognize and/or discover new bloggers and welcome them to the blogosphere, so thank you very much Crichton’s Co-Op!
The rules are as follows:
- Thank the person/blog who nominated you and link back to them.
- Write a post telling your fellow bloggers 11 things about yourself.

Here are the answers to the questions for me:
If you could go back in time, what decade would you want to live in and why?
Athens around 350 BC, when both Plato and Aristotle were alive.
What was the catalyst for beginning your blog?
It was my friend Anna, who always supports me and encourages me.
What are some tips and tricks for how you juggle blogging alongside your other life commitments?
If you really enjoy it there is no need for tips and tricks.
What is your favourite go-to outfit?
What do you do to unwind?
Are you an entrée, main or dessert kind of person?
Can I choose two of them? I would go for entrée (most of the times its entrées, one is never enough) and main dish.
What do you get the most enjoyment out of – cooking or eating a meal?
I really enjoy cooking a meal and watching my friends and family eating it with pleasure.
What is the most memorable meal you have had and why?
No, no, no. Don’t make me do that. I really can’t choose. I am sorry. Don’t hate me.
Are you semi-fluent or fluent in another language, if yes what one(s) and if no, what language(s) would you like to be able to speak?
My native language is Greek, you know tzatziki, mouzakas etc. But I wish I could also speak Italian. It is such a lovely language, hearing it is like a beautiful song.
Are you a movie or a book person (you can be both too!)?
What is your drink of choice?
I cannot resist in a spicy margarita.
