Today there is no food in this post. There is lots of love.

Before I tell you about the “love aff.. air”, I wish to express my love to all of you and to thank you once again for participating at our event. The polls have closed and we have a winner. Tracey Olson, from the United States is the winner with 29 votes!!! Wow!!

Congratulations Tracey.

A few months ago I received an unexpected gift from Foodbuzz but I suppose most of you who are members must have received a similar gift as well.

Personalized minicards …

Yesterday I had another unexpected parcel …

a lovely bag and a warm message…

Thank you Foodbuzz Team. We love you too.

Finally, there is also lots of love among the bloggers and awards exchange hands from one continent to the other in just a few seconds. Isn’t that great.

It’s so nice to receive these awards but then it’s so hard to decide to whom to pass them on.

Vani, of Illatharasi has awarded me with the Blogging for a purpose Award. As I have received this award again you may see the rules here. Thanks a lot Vani.

Now the difficult part is to chose:

1. Nuria, of Spanish Recipes, is blogging from Barcelona, Spain with a Mediterranean temperament and lots of humour. Hola Nuria.

2. Anamika, the Sugarcrafter, is blogging from Botswana, although she is from India and you will drool over her sugarcraft.

3. Diane and Todd, of White on Rice Couple, who are blogging from Southern California, Diane is Vietnamese and Todd is from the United States, a wonderful couple who grow their own fruit and vegetables, have a garden like the Garden of Eden and will be featuring on T.V.

4. Lisa, of Lisa’s Kitchen, Vegetarian Recipes, blogging from London, Ontario and although Lisa specializes in Indian cuisine, she is not from India. I’ve met Lisa through her comments on other blogs and at the beginning when I saw her avatar of a woman pointing with the gun on her temple I thought that she was some kind of a wako and it took me a while to realize how friendly she is and what a kind person. (sorry Lisa about “wako”)

5. Bobby, of Blog Chef, is blogging from Michigan, U.S., and is a new friend who is posting mostly delicious Chinese recipes.

Finally, I wish to express my thanks to the Great Cooks Community, for having me as a featured blogger. Thanks Jill and Charles. (Pleaseeeeeeeeee change my photo. I am not that fat (lol).

  19. Nikki Miller-Ka says:

    Hello again, Ivy! I just wanted to tell you what a treat it is to come to your blog and see good food, love, and kindness. I wish I had an award to bestow unto you, but my comment will have to suffice for now.

    There is a HUGE Greek community in my city and I grew up eating Greek food at all of the local eateries and homes of my Greek friends. My world view of greek cuisine has been utterly limited. You have opened my eyes to so many dishes and combinations! I thought I had experienced it all! Thank you, my friend, for having such a wonderful blog :)

  20. Hetal says:

    I have a treat for you in my blog,check it out..

  21. Ivy says:

    Hi Nikki. I’m glad to see you again. I am glad you found something of interest in my blog and as I have already told you I enjoy reading your posts, not only for the drool worthy recipes you post but I can distinguish from your posts that you are a very cultivated person, blogging with humour.

  22. Passionate baker...& beyond says:

    Great post Ivy & strangely again, I was putting together a Foodbuzz post too(am far from posting it though). Dont have the heart to begin using the bag yet…it’s so sweet. Congrats on the pile of awards & being featured on Great Cooks…lots of love to you girl…xoxoxo

  23. Ivy says:

    Hi Hetal, this is so sweet of you, two awards in one post. Thanks my friend.

  24. Ivy says:

    Deeba, Great minds think alike (lol).
    Thanks a lot for your kind words.

  25. Bellini Valli says:

    You’re so lucky to receive these things from Foodbuzz. Not everyone receives these things because I do not so you are one lucky lady:D

  26. Ivy says:

    Val, I though everyone received them. In this case then I am lucky.

  27. Núria says:

    Caramba Ivy, Muchas Gracias! Gosh Ivy! Thanks so much!!!! You are sooooo nice to me! All awards I’m getting are from you! I wish I got another one from someone else just to send it over to y♥u!!!! You are a SuperDupperBloggerFriend :D!!! I love you two!

    I’m sorry it took me so long to answer, this summer I’m taking my daughter away some days to visit the family or to the beach and I’m not spending as much time in front of the computer as I should… everything is delayed… But I want you to know that I do feel very grateful to you for being there always!!!

  28. Ivy says:

    Hola Nuria. I don’t need an award to know that you are a friend. We shouldn’t be spending so many hours in front of the computer and enjoy your vacations without us.
