Super Sweet Blogging Award

Special thanks to Crystal Collier for the award. So here's what I have to do. I have to answer five "sweet" questions.

Without further ado, the five questions and their answers.

1. Cookies or Cake? Both?  Um. I'm not much of a sweets person. So how about salt and vinegar potato chips? Or honey mustard pretzel pieces. YUM. (And since this is true confessions, I've bee known to eat salt--but only really good salt, like the pink salt. And it's healthy. Really. All that pinkness is from essential minerals. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.)

2. Chocolate or Vanilla? Okay, this does hit my one sweet weakness--Chocolate. Dark chocolate. Always. It's a gift from the angels.
3. Favorite Sweet Treat? Coffee. I know this isn't really sweet, but I do put some sugar in it. There's nothing like a mug of steaming, black coffee in the morning
4. When Do You Crave Sweet Things The Most? Chocolate is the panacea for all ills at all times. Depressed? Chocolate with sea salt and caramel. Happy? Chocolate with  black currants. Bored? Chocolate with pear and almonds. Sick? Chocolate with cayenne. Yep, there's a chocolate for every time and need.
5. Sweet Nick Name? Sugar. Weird thing is that no one I actually know calls me this. But when I moved to the South seven years ago, total strangers began calling me "Sugar" or "Baby." When I first moved here, my little Nutmegger heart (people from Connecticut are called "Nutmeggers," don't ask why because no one knows) thought "I'm so not your baby or your sugar." But after seven years, I respond, "Hey, girl." Okay, I don't really say that, but I think it. And that counts.
My nominees for the award. (To fulfill the award, you have to display the certificate, answer the questions, and nominate a baker's dozen--i.e. 13-- other bloggers.)

  1. Thanks so much for thinking of me!

  2. Thanks for the award, Connie! Wish I had those cupcakes right now!

  3. Thanks for the award, you Nutmegger. :) (But seriously, what??)

  4. Thanks for the nomination, Connie. It will be a fun post to get back into my Fall schedule.

  5. Thanks, Connie! Now I want some chocolate.

  6. Yay! I'm such a snob. I won't touch chocolate anymore unless it comes in "twix" or hails from places like Austria. If you're going to splurge, it better be the best. ;)
