And the Winner is: Lazaro Cooks! Again

Hopefully I will need a virtual trophy case to store my blogger awards.  Seriously, I would like to thank Denise Fletcher, the subject of my last post, for nominating me for the Happy 101 Award.  I am quite sure by now, you can all get a sense for how I feel about Denise.  If not...please read my last post.  In short, she is a Mom, cook, writer, and a wonderfully sweet person.  If anyone is a deserving recipient of this award it it her.

Having to choose blogs to nominate is not an easy thing to do.  Last week I nominated 12 fellow bloggers for the Sunshine award.  Now, in the order of fairness, I did not nominate you for this award.  But, some of you are my absolute favorites, you know who you are.  I could give you every award, however I wanted to shine a light on some others.

Since, I started blogging I have had the pleasure to read countless blogs, most are cooking blogs, but some are not.  With this being the Happy 101 award, I submit the following blogs.  These blogs are run by people who always have a sweet word to say, and are sure to put a smile on your face.

Here are the rules:
1    Copy and paste the award on your blog.
2    List who gave the award to you and use a link to her blog (or hyperlink).
3    List 10 things that make you happy.
4    Pass the award on to other bloggers and visit their blog to let them know about the award.

10 Things that make me happy:
1. Making sure my wife is taken care of: Mind, Body & Soul
2. That my family is healthy & prospering
3. Having my Cousin Nancy on Lazaro Cooks!
4. Making new friends (In-person or on-line)
5. Cooking something I am proud to share with others
6. Writing
7. My Cats
8. Playing FIFA 2010
9. Fringe - (Best show on TV)
10. Watching blu rays on my Panasonic plasma TV

Here are my deserving nominees for the Happy 101 Award....



  1. Lazaro, thank you so much for this lovely award and congratulations to you on receiving another deserving award.

    I love your first thing that makes you happy - taking care of your wife. My great husband treats me exactly the same way and I feel the same about him. Perhaps that's why we've been married forty years.

    Thanks again,
