My Questions From Peter:
What inspired you to start a blog? I have always wanted to write, and I guess I just wanted to start somewhere. I have always loved cooking and baking, so after reading a ton of cooking blogs, thought, well this is something I could do. It keeps me busy an keeps my brain active.
A new recipe you would like to make that you’ve never tried before? Off the top of my head….I am stumped ! Maybe something with fish…
Favorite travel destination? I haven’t travelled, but would fancy going to some exotic place… I have seen pic’s of Bora Bora, now that looks like an awesome place OMW !!!
A great weekend would include? Just some quiet time, relaxed, perhaps a book or magazine, out by my pool. 🙂
Favorite meal to cook for family and friends? Oh I don’t know if I have a favorite…I just enjoy cooking 🙂 . Thinking about it now, a good old roast with loads of yummy veggies 🙂 and cheese sauce, of course. 🙂
Favorite movie or book? That is quite hard really….some thought is needed here 🙂
Something you enjoy about each season?
Spring: The warmth of the sun. I enjoy the new life of plants and flowers blooming. It is very comforting to the soul.
Summer: Sun tanning, enjoying the pool. There is something about Summer that makes me feel healthy, maybe it’s the vitamin D 🙂 .
Autum: The warmth of the sun with the cool breeze in the air.
Winter: It never really gets very cold here, but it is nice to put on some winter clothes…and boots….I love boots !
If you had free airline tickets, where would you travel? I would go to America in a heartbeat to visit my brother and his amazing family.
Name a favorite dessert? This is really hard for me…maybe my Chocolate Swiss Roll with Praline and Cream 🙂 ….and I just have to give you another one….My Chocolate Mousse and Cream 🙂 Yum…..
Favorite cooking/baking gadget? I have a couple 🙂 but I will say my Gefu Spice Infuser, which I use mainly for when I make my curry.
My Questions to my Nominees:
Okay, I hope you don’t mind, but I am going to ask the identical questions I asked my nominees for the Liebster Award. I have nominated different nominees for this award, so it should be fine 🙂
1. If there was one aspect in your life that your could change, what would that be?
2. What is one piece of advise you would give to your children as they grow up?
3. Is there anything adventurous you would like to do in life, if so, what is it?
4. Sweet or Savoury?
5. What surroundings do you prefer when writing, reading or studying?
6. If money were no object, where would your next holiday destination be and why?
7. Each zodiac sign portrays certain characteristics for people. What is your star sign and do you feel your star sign captures the real you?
8. Do you have any pets? If so, what are they and what are their names?
9. What is one thing that annoys you?
10. Fiction or non-fiction?

How I started my blog:
Several years ago, I left work to be a stay at home mom, and to be honest, there was only so much housework, gardening and gym that I could do in a day. I needed something else. So I started reading all sorts of blogs, then got onto food blogs (as I love food), started following loads of food blogs and came to realise that…I could do this too. So, basically that is how it all started.
My advise to new bloggers:
Never give up ! Keep going. perseverance is key !!!

Yay ! It’s Friday !!!
Happy Friday 🙂
