Splendid Recipes and More Was Awarded


I love food… I love cooking… I find baking therapeutic. That’s what Mrs. Choux at Box of Recipes has to say about cooking and baking. Don’t we all, those of us who enjoy being in the kitchen find cooking a stress reliever or therapeutic as Mrs. Choux puts it?

She goes on to say, “For me, food is more than substance vital for survival. It can be uplifting, sensual, comforting, celebratory and quite often pivotal in bringing people together. It doesn’t matter where in the world you come from, because everyone understands the language of food.”

Wow, well said, cooking and sharing our prepared food creations with others is such a joy. Who doesn’t want to feel good, and make others happy in the process?

I even like her logo, Mrs. Choux has great recipes in that little box.

Mrs. Choux recipe box

She describes that box as a collection of recipes she spent more than half her life collecting, and says watch as it jumps out (the recipe) of my recipe box and into this blog (her blog) for everyone to use. Read the rest of her story here:  About The Recipe Box

Now I wish to thank Mrs. Choux of the Box of Recipes for book marking and following our blog and leaving her comments as she visits. Thank you Mrs. Choux!!

  5. Hi Randy,
    Thank you so much for this nomination. Where can I go to read about it the rules on the nomination? Congrats on your nomination as well. You deserve such recognition.

    I have been seriously ill the last 3 1/2 months.I have been undergoing alot of test and I am still waiting for more. I was raced to the hospital on sunday for anaphalectic shock. Apparently I am allergic to one or more of my meds. I just came home Wednesday night. Yesterday I was back at the medical center with breathing difficulties and hives. I wasn’t sure if I needed to use the Epi-pen for the first time. I guess I am glad that I didn’t because they discovered I have pnuemonia on top of everthing else. The new meds with all the other meds have finally made me feel better this morning. I was counting my blessings for some improvement. I was praiying That this will be a turning point that the doctors are on the right path. Then I check my emails and blogg and see this. Thank you so much for brightening my day.


    • Hi Honey,

      I feel sad to hear that you are not well. What medical problems do you have, if you don’t mind me asking?

      If you are interested I have a health and nutrition website. I call it the Health News Library ( http://www.healthnewslibrary.com ). Maybe you might find something useful there for yourself. I was certified in Human Health and Nutrition.

  6. Hi Randy,
    I have had chronic diarrhea for almost 4 months… I can go to the bathroom up to 20 times in one night. I also have had bouts of vomiting… My blood pressure is haywire, because of all the pain and stress caused by symptoms to my body from this illness. I have lost a lot of weight rapidly and I am still losing weight. My body is not able to absorbs nutrients, because everything runs through my body so quickly… The top suspect for this affliction can be Crohn’s Disease. The doctors are running test to diagnose the disease. Thanks for concern. I will check out your site later.
    Thank you
