Awards and Failures

First off, the good news. Both Lisa at Lime In the Coconut and VeniceForever at Loves to Eat gave me the E for Excellent Award.
Thanks so much ladies! I really appreciate it, and I draw so much inspiration from the food blogging community. Now it's my turn to honor a few blogs:

Liz at Liz's Cooking Blog - That's a familiar name in this blog since I get so many recipes from her.
Sweet Tea in Texas at Sweet Tea in Texas - Her cooking makes me miss the Lone Star State! I have a bunch of her recipes starred in my Google Reader.
Ashlee at A Year In the Kitchen - She is so creative, and most of her recipes are on the healthy side too.
Nashvillest - This is how I figure out what's going on around town.
Kiley - He's my brother, and though we may not agree about much, I've got to share the family blogging love.

Now it’s your turn to spread the love. Please find at least 10 more blogs of any kind which you deem to be excellent (but if you only know of a few, that’s OK too). Post about the blogs you picked, linking back to me and to them. Once you’ve posted, return here to let me know your post is up, and of course let your 10 award winners know too.

Now for the failures. I had the brilliant idea to make pizza on Friday. Everyone else makes it seem so easy and simple, and we had some Italian sausage in the freezer. I had looked at several dough recipes and decided on one, so I was ready. Then, my food processor gave me trouble, so I scooped the dough onto a floured surface in an attempt to knead it myself. But just like the last time I did something with dough, it proceeded to get everywhere and muck up everything around, and I just gave up and threw it in the trash.

(Not my kitchen, but a similar type of mess. Source)

Fortunately I had bought pre-made dough at the grocery store for fear that might happen. I had already made a mess of the kitchen, the sausage took longer than I thought it would to cook, and I was nearly in tears by the time we sat down.

Next time I'm in the mood for pizza, we're ordering in!

KM--I am deathly afraid of flour and words like "knead." However, even I can manage this pizza dough recipe...give it a try.
