Super Sweet

on September 3, 2012


(Have I got your sweet tooth screaming? All these pictures are in my Pinterest food board; you can click to follow me.)

There are a lot of really good, inspiring writers around the world, writing blogs while carrying on with their “real” lives. It’s encouraging to know that there is so much wisdom and kindness in the hearts and minds of regular, everyday people. One of these people is Faith at Faithrises, who writes to encourage, motivate, uplift, and inspire people to rise above personal difficulties and challenging circumstances. What a great work!

Sweet Faith nominated me for the “Super Sweet Blogging Award.” What a “sweet” thing to do! My constant prayer is that all my words, coming from my mouth or my fingertips, will be a pleasing, sweet aroma to our Father. This is a fun award because it’s all about sweets… which I love! Then I get to nominate my own sweetie-pie bloggers.


1. Give credit to the person who chose to nominate you. (You rock, Faith!)

2. Answer the “Super Sweet” questions.

3. Nominate a “Baker’s Dozen” (13) blogs.

    You are just too sweet, and such a dear to nominate me! I am more comfortable sharing here, if that is ok. 🙂

    I have always been a sweets hound, unfortunately, but I have spent the last 5 weeks working to slay my sugar dragon.
    That being said, I love fresh, homemade, right from the oven chocolate chip cookies, and will take them any day over a piece of cake.
    I never thought I was a big chocolate person until I really looked at what I ate for sweets…Chocolate it is, although I have recently developed a taste for the 85% dark chocolate bars.
    My sugar cravings would usually come late afternoon, too. What I found was when I started eating really well (no junk, no breads), those cravings dropped significantly. Yay!
    A sweet nickname? That would have to be honey.

    I loved reading your list. I do have to say if a cake has lots of frosting and there aren’t any cookies around, I will join you. Would you like one of the corner, heavily frosted pieces, too? ;-D

    Thanks again, Melinda!

      HA! you are like me– I’ll take that corner piece too. I’m trying to slay the dragon as well.. something about 50 year old metabolism just goes too slow to process that!
