You Guys Rock 2: Liebster’s Walking on Sunshine


The response to The Rantings of an Amateur Chef continues to blow my mind. First some stats:

Since I started in late February, there have been over 18,000 page views, 1664 on a single day, 850 comments left, almost 900 email subscribers, 130 shares, a dozen or so reblogs and visitors from 116 different countries. (Anyone know someone in Greenland that wants to check the blog out??)

We have had several guest bloggers: Maggie (Cake of the Irish and more), Danny (PVC and chocolate), Naomi (mushroom dip), Pam (Irish stew) and Gabby (Vegan chocolate pancakes). If you have an interest in being featured on The Rantings of an Amateur Chef, drop me a line at

Now on to the awards ceremony….

I have been blessed to be nominated for two additional blogger awards.

The first is the Liebster Award from Sarah at Memoirs of An Amateur Cook. The second is the Sunshine Award from Lisa at fLVE. THANK YOU BOTH!

As I wrote in my previous award acceptance,  I don’t always follow directions, so I won’t answer all the questions associated with the awards, but I do want to highlight several other blogs to nominate:

Sunshine: What to Cook – a great variety of recipes.   The Kitchen Bitch – Great stories and food.

Liebster: Humble Feast – Beautiful pics and wonderful food.  Marinating Online – Also great pics and good tips.

Thank you all for making The Rantings of an Amateur Chef one of the fastest growing blogs on the Net. You Guys Rock!!

    Wow thank you. What is the Liebster Award and what does nominated mean? I may sound stupid but I blog around a 60+ hour work week cooking for up to 120 people everyday. I am not very blog award savvy. Love you blog and am not surprised by your stats.
