Thinking Blogger Award - what a thrill!

Last week, I got an email from the lovely Kirsten – she had nominated me for a Thinking Blogger Award. Can you guys believe it? I was so happy! She’s one of my favorite foodies and it was a thrill to know that she likes my blog that much. Thank you, sweetie!

A few days later, I found out that Steven had nominated too. Again, one of my favorite foodies – and he lives on the other side of the planet. Internet is really fantastic. Thank you, Steven!
I bravely managed not to be devoured by my own ego - after that, who can blame me?? – and now it’s my turn to choose 5 bloggers who make me think.

Kristen and Steven, I’m sorry it took me forever to make this post, but it was sooo hard to choose only 5 people!

There you go, guys, my choices – the ones that make me think about getting better and better, always improving my cooking skills, my photos, my texts, the whole bunch:

- Valentina, who writes Trem Bom and Trem Bom in English: her blog was the inspiration that made me start Technicolor Kitchen (and then, the English version of it). We’ve met through the Internet and became friends – she and I have so much in common it’s amazing. Some months later she came to Brazil and we had lunch together – it was great. Our friendship has grown so much after that. She’s my best friend and I adore her.

- Gattina and her Kitchen Unplugged. Just a look at her photos will make you dream. And once you start reading her texts, delicious recipes and caring comments you’ll become an instant fan. She’s been so supportive of my blog, even since I only posted in Portuguese. Talk about generosity.

- Haalo at Cook (almost) anything at least once: I just love her blog. The recipes are wonderful – and they work perfectly. I’ve tried my hand on some and was always very pleased with the result. Drop her a line some time and you’ll see how sweet she is.

- Anh and her Food Lover’s Journey: it’s wonderful to read her posts and relate to some of her cooking experiences. Anh has lately made some posts about baking bread and I share her passion for it. The photos are stunning and the recipes always make you feel like running to the kitchen as fast as you can.

- Last, but most certainly not least, Brilynn and her Jumbo Empanadas: her theme is “go big or go home” and I’ve tryed to incorporate that into my cooking, too. Brilynn is so passionate about cooking and baking that I doubt that you won’t feel at least a bit “infected” by that. Wanna bet?? Check her blog out.

If you are on the list above, this is what you are supposed to do:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think;

2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme;
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote.

Congratulations from me too, Patricia. You deserve an award. I am not familiar with the "Thinking Blogger Award". I suppose there are similar awards in Sweden too. I really don´t know.

By the way, I forgot to tell you. A couple of days ago, I made a link to your blog without asking for permission. Hope you don´t mind.
