Grazing in The City - Chicago - Versatile Blogger Award

I was recently nominated by a fellow blogger for the Versatile Blogger Award. The intent of this honor is to be recognized by your blogging peers, while giving the opportunity to acknowledge other great bloggers as well. The conditions of this award are as below:

  • Thank the award giver and link back to them in your post – thank you, Eva. I’ve really enjoyed reading about your recent Moroccan adventures, as well as all your great recipes!
  • Share 7 things about yourself:
  1. I’m a Southerner – growing up in North Carolina, my first job (all through high school) was working at a barbeque restaurant.
  2. I hate Tootsie Rolls.
  3. I love Chicago.
  4. I came in 3rd place in the school science fair when I was in the 5th grade.
  5. The only other countries I’ve visited are Mexico and Italy (not counting layovers in Switzerland and England). Would LOVE to travel more!
  6. I lived in Texas for 12 years.
  7. I love horror/scary movies. The scarier the better!
  • Pass this award along to up to 15 blogs you enjoy reading and contact them to let them know about the award. I added the ‘up to’ part as I just don’t read 15 blogs. So here are a bunch that I do read and appreciate:
  1. Four Meals – Sarah’s mission to eat fantastic food while staying on a budget is both creative and inspiring.
  2. Kiss My Whisk – Great recipes that have given me a lot of ideas.
  3. Alexandra’s Kitchen – I love this blog for the photography alone. Amazingly well done.
  4. El Fogoncito – Arturo is featuring some fantastic Dominican food with his blog – check it out!
  5. This Modern Wife – A wide variety of recipes, DIY projects and fun anecdotes keep this blog on my radar.
  6. Simple Speedy Snacks – You want snacks? Hors d’oeuvres? This blog’s got you covered.
  7. Eat Now Talk Later – Lots of Indian and Israeli/kosher recipes with beautiful imagery make this blog a must-read!

    Thank you Bill, I am enjoying your blog as Chicago is one of my most favourite cities in the US! Nice list of new blogs I am going to review. Keep on blogging!
    PS, I am too scared to watch scary movies, in fact, that new one about the exorcism — I can’t even listen to the trailers, it’s so brutal!
