Hey, thanks for the mention 🙂 And mucho congrats on the award. Like very much that you received!!
Thank you – and congratulations. Your blog is one of my very favorites, and you are a great blogging pal! 🙂
Shanna, You are such a delightful person! Thank you for the lovely words and mention.
You being naturally happy (and of course talented) person makes me want to visit you and be happier that day. As a result, Blog Of The Year Awards! By just being you, you are making this world a better place! Your recipes are bonus treats! 😀 Hugs, Fae.
Oh, dear. I am blushing. Your words are so kind, sweet and generous. My most sincere thanks for your support, encouragement – and this lovely nomination. I am honored to have you in my circle. Hugs reciprocated!
Congratulations Shanna, you deserve it! I love Persian dishes too. I had the opportunity to visit Iran a few years ago (for business) and I was in love with the food 🙂
Sofia – I do look forward to hearing about about your culinary adventures in Iran. Oh, lucky woman! I have not received an email from you. When you send it, please send a P.O. Box or work address so we can remedy your pecan conundrum. Thank you for saying such nice things. Warmly – Shanna
I know I have to write to you and I will very soon, I hope tomorrow! Haha don’t worry about my pecan conundrum. Mr. H. is from France, there are plenty there and we should be going there soonish 🙂 Last New Years when we were there, we went a bit mad on buy pecans, so I invaded my brother in law’s kitchen and made about 300 biscuits 🙂
Hi, Sofia –
I am relieved to hear that you will not be deprived of your pecans. Pecan biscuits sounds great – are they more like a Southern biscuit (bread-like) or an English cookie? Have a great Sunday.
Congratulations. You are such a wonderful lady and I really love reading your posts. They are so warm and with a great sense of humour. I love your blog too…Have a fabulous weekend!
Liz – I hope that (even more!) folk flock to your amazing blog, My Favourite Pastime. I do adore it. Adore. Thank you to the woman behind the magic. Mazel tov. Warmly, Shanna

To borrow your diction, you – and Petit World Citizen – are a true jewel. The pleasure of nominating you is all mine. Without question: anyone who has not checked out your blog should.
