Winner winners, chicken dinners.

*Tap tap tap, is this thing on?*


I've been nominated for a Liebster Award very kindly by Lisa over at Italian Kiwi, where she shares the mouthwatering Italian recipes coming out of her French Kitchen.

(Ps. check the bottom of the post to see if you won the Foodie Festival Tickets)

In essence the Liebster Award is a chain letter between bloggers, spreading the blog love through interesting blogs. It's really sweet to be nominated, and I can't wait to re-share the love.
