Jake-congratulations! Ya' dun good! hee hee, and in only 7 weeks. Keep up the awesome writing and interacting in those forums. :)
Me-I enjoyed receiving the Hubnugget aware as a newbie, (Soul Work: JOY), and with each accolade my confidence grew. So...my very latest accomplishment from HP that I am proud of?
I received a judges pick and $50 for one of my recipes that I submitted during the recipe contest this past summer. Now, why this is sooo amazing to me is because:
1. Ask my kids-they will tell you I was a lousy cook when they were growing up and tell tales of some of the 'creations' I came up with...I'm sure NOT at all healthy, LOL
2. I never had the INTEREST in cooking or the patience, when they were younger but have developed this over the years and cooking has become one of my passions (see my Peach and Pecan Pie video, haha)
3. The actual hub that won...well, I literally threw that together because of the tantalizing tomato / mozzarella cheese appetizer that my daughter put together during my visit with her in May. It looked brightly colored, healthy and just plain yummy looking. So, I felt very strongly that I had to use it.
I guess it was the food muse that prompted me to enter that particular choice and I followed her lead. Gee...didn't think I had so much to say about the subject, but apparently I did, haha.
