1st blog award

myphoto My first blog award !! Do you believe this ? I didn'd...Although it enlighted my day !
I was just cheking on comments....And....What....What is this ? Cristina, the gifted cook of pinay in texas cooking corner gave me the most encouraging gift !!! I started to dance around, jumping all over the place. Thank you Cristina, it is a great honour to be part of your favorite blogs !
there are few rules to fallow:

1/ thank & make a link to the blogger who shared award with you
2/ share 7 things about yourself (that's the hard part)
3/ pass the award to 10 recently discovered bloggers
4/ contat each blogger to tell them

here we are, this is 2nd rule time :

I'm a french woman, from Paris, I've chosen to write in english just for fun and...well..hard to say for a french girl but american, english, australian food blogs are far more attractive than my compatriot's.
I've called my blog "a frog in the cottage" because english people call us frogs, dont they?
it is only fair, as we call them roastbeef!

here are 10 bloggers I've discovered recently and wish you enjoy as much as I do ;

a southern grace
almost bourdain
anna's table
food for every season
green been food
rosa's yummy yums
bitter sweet
memories in the baking
valérie cuisine
au fil de mes rêves d'amour
