I am indeed honored to receive this " The Versatile Blogger " Award from Kimberli  of What's cooking?  She not only honored me this award for one of my blog but two of my blogs !!! Thank you Kimberli...I am super happy to accept it :))

As I accept this award I must note the rules ( this goes for all who receive this award as well ) . You must thank the person who awarded you by linking back to their post, you have to say 7 things about yourself and last but not least, you have to pass the award down to 15 other new or newly discovered blogs .

Are you ready to know another 7 interesting things about Elin ?   ^ *  ( I received many awards and I have written 7 things about myself many times and now I have to rediscover myself again...Lol !)  hope this is interesting to you

7.   I love to try out new recipes from books I bought to the dismay of the Piggies clan :p Wild Boar famos line " Why can't you stick to your own recipe that the kids like to eat ? "

6.   I love to crap nonsence lately to the dismay of my readers :P I have just started another new blog to crap on things that make me happy besides food - My Knick Knacks  So , if my post doesn't make sense at all...please excuse Elin - she has succumbed to the ageing factor !

5.  I love hot stuff...chilli is a must have side condiment in my food ( my secret chilli dipping - mix together chopped basil leaves, chopped garlic and chopped chilli with light soy sauce - this goes well with noodles or baked fish )

4.  I can be a Kind Momsie and feed my kids with the best food and supplement and yet can be the Wicked Momsie alive....I tease them with my virtual food on my blog till they salivate over their keyboards : ) (  Elin can sometimes be such a wicked Momsie to her Piggies )

3.  I only use two types of oil for my cooking -  Grapeseed oil and olive oil  - one can take heat and the other just can't .  You can say I am an extremist but both are good for health :) so this extreme sides of me is good afterall :)

2.  I can save on anything but not on food , kitchen accessories and cookbooks. I love them and that is my only weakness ! I can stay away from all temptations but not those lovely cookbooks and kitchen accessories.   Wild Boar know that and my Piggies know that.  You can guess what I get from them each year for my birthdays and Mother's Day !

1.  I talk with my two dogs everyday without fail and my neighbor thinks I am mad or overly romantic for I coo and call them ' Baby and Darling '  ( WB asked why I never coo and call him Baby and darling) So I told him this " coz you are not a dog :p  you are a wild boar "   

Now I would like to pass the award to ..........

1.  Mary - One Perfect Bite
2.  Roxan - Sweet Shanti
3.  Elisabeth - food And Thrift Finds
4.  Kristy - My Little Space
6.  Cheah - No-Frills Recipes
7.  Tiffany - Como Water
9.  Joy - Pastry By Joy
10. Lora - Cake Duchess
11. Veronica - Quay Po Cooks
12. Briarrose -  Flour Dusted
14. Maja - Sitno Seckano
15. YummyLittleCooks - Yummy Little Cooks

Thanks Kimberli for the award ....I am truly honored :)
