Weekend Links & Awards!

Happy New Year!

I trust everyone had a wonderful New Year’s Eve and day. From a quick poll on our Facebook page, most of you were staying in and cooking up a feast!

We rang in the new year with a small group of friends and a candlelit dinner that went so late, midnight came while we were still savoring dessert. It was fun to relax around the table with the kiddies upstairs sleeping and enjoy uninterrupted conversation with other adults!


2010 Canadian Weblog Awards

Midnight brought a fun surprise, as the Canadian Weblog Awards were announced and Simple Bites was declared the winner of Best New Weblog! What an incredible honour (yes, spelled like a Canadian).

Simple Bites also placed third in the Food & Drink category, behind the highly regarded Everybody Likes Sandwiches (1st) and inspiring Gourmet Fury (2nd). It was a thrill just to be in the running next to the two of them.

SLM Vlogs

In case you were doing other things (gee, you think?!) on Christmas Eve and missed all the cuteness, I wanted to point you in the direction of the little vlogs that each of the Simple Living Media channels put together. Don’t miss holiday greetings from Art of Simple, The Art of Simple, Simple Homeschool, Simple Kids, and my family and me!

Frosting for the Cause

Frosting for the Cause

I’m posting today over at the newly launched Frosting for the Cause. It’s a 365-day blogging project featuring frosted cookies & cupcakes that will all raise funds to help combat cancer. I’m giving my very special recipe for Poppy Seed Lemon Cupcakes with Lemon-Mascarpone Frosting, so stop by and check it out.

Warmest wishes for 2011!
