One Lovely Blog Award

The next award is One Lovely Blog Award! I want to thank Mike for this wonderful honor! Mike’s is not just another blogger, but a published author of the Sci/Fantasy young adult book titled “The Eye Dancers” . Mike’s stories are creative, fun and he has a really “Lovely” personality! The name of his blog is

As a new writer, it is always humbling to be recognized by not just another writer, but a seasoned one as such. Thank you so much!!


The rules for One Lovely Blog Award are very straightforward: thank the blogger who nominated you and link the post to their page, and then state 7 random facts about yourself and nominate those you feel are deserving of the award.


Here are seven things about myself . . .

I am the Jan (middle child) Brady in my family.


I used to own a 70 Dodge Challenger RT with a dual 440 six pack under her hood. She ran and clocked the quarter mile at 13.4 @ 107 mph in 1989.


I love playing Sudoku, and other types of memory games for hours.
However the longest time I spent on a game was 26 hours, and it was PS2 Resident Evil; Nemesis from start to finish



I still have my Sega Genesis from 1992 and about 15 games and I do play from time to time.


I love to go to the beach with my big umbrella, blanket, shades and sleep to the sounds of the waves.


One of my favorite places I enjoy walking through, is Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, CA. The home has a lot of history and a secret tunnel that used to run from the basement to Sunset Blvd, during the prohibition period.


I love dogs of all kinds, but I really love “Pit Bulls”


And now it’s time to nominate some of my fellow bloggers for One Lovely Blog Award. I hope that everyone who reads this post will take a few minutes to view these sites. They’re fun, and ran by vibrant talented people with loads of passion for their art/craft.

Once again, a huge thanks to Mike from
A big high five to all those who follow my blog, thanks so much to everyone for reading!
Dishing It Out With Clarissa–



Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us. Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.

    1. Thank you Gary, but I do have many flaws. My dad wanted a boy, but got three girls instead, so he taught us to fend for ourselves, and through his desire for a son instilled a little tomboy in each of us!!!!


      1. I was the eldest son of all boys and all my cousins were boys. I grew up assuming I’d have sons. I have three daughters. I think a little bit of tomboy and knowing how to handle yourself is not a bad thing 🙂


  1. Hi Claisa .you have a lovely blog and you deserve more than one award for your efforts to post your creativity.jalal


  2. Thank you so, so much for this award Clarissa but I am afraid I have already been nominated for it and attached it to my website, but I still am very grateful for you choosing me and a little bit honoured to have it again so I will follow the rules and pass it on. I hope this is OK.
