Hip Hip Hooray - I've won an Award!!

I have had a very busy few days but now that I am in front of the laptop I thought that I better share with you all that my blog has won an award. As I had mentioned I was in the finaland on Saturday night  the Irish Blog Awards took place in Belfast.  An aunt, with whom I was very close to and fond of, passed away on Friday night so naturally I wasn't able to travel to the ceremony. Jack and I kept a close eye on Twitter and we were overjoyed to see people tweeting that Nessa's Family Kitchen had won Best Newcomer! Sheilia from Gimme The Recipe was good enough to collect the award for me. Thank You again to everyone that makes the awards possible. I'm really chuffed and honoured to be a winner!!

    Congratulations on your award. I've just discovered your blog through a link on a list of the winners. You recipes are so lovely as the mother of a already fussy 11 month old (i didn't think this was possible at this age) I think your baby food recipes are going to come in handy.

    Thank-you for your good wishes Matt!

    Thanks for your lovely comment, Emma!
    I hope that you find the baby food ideas useful. I intend on adding to it, every so often! I think your little man is just showing you that he has his own opinion, at least where his food is concerned! I have always found that feeding becomes a little more difficult around this age. I'm all for distractions and always have something 'new'(like a spatula) for Millie to examine while I am trying to get the first few spoonfuls in! Let me know if you are searching for any recipe in particular.
    Thanks Nessa.
