Happy Friday everyone! Well folks another week has passed and more food has been consumed. How is everybody doing?  As you know, I started a ritual last week where every Friday I would feature some excellent food blogs and display some of the great content around the world.

Before we get started, I have to first say a special thank you. I received the “Premio Arte Pico was given to me by: Jo@KitchengirlJo@blogspot.com

This is an interesting one that originates from Uruguay and is called the Premio Arte Pico from a blogger who makes dolls. You can visit her site here.

The acceptance of Premio Arte Pico has some rules:

1) Pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award, creativity, design, interesting material, and also contributes to the blogger community, no matter of language.

2) Advertise name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.

3) Each award-winner, has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.

4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of “Arte y pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.

5) Share these rules.

I would like to pass this award onto:

  1. Jenny@PickyPalate - where you will find something for even the pickiest eater around. Drop in to find great family friendly recipes and check out her nice design. Good work Jenny!
