  1. That’s impressive. I am here because Brigid Hagan shared one of your posts. I had no idea I was going to be checking out an award winning blogger. I thought I would simply be reading about some fantastic breads in Germany. I very much enjoy reading well written blogs and look forward to reading the one Brigid shared (My Mother-in-Law’s Cookies).

    1. Hi Cynthia! The blogger awards are mostly bloggers patting one another on the back but I was/am flattered to get nominated for these. Check out the bloggers I’ve nominated as well. I’m in good company.
