I don't know where to start. I just am really thrilled to be nominated Best Food Blog Overall category, which is currently running by Well Fed Network. I would be missing this if my dear girlfriend Barbara of Winos and Foodies did not inform me through my Wall on Facebook two days ago. I know I am less popular than the other candidates, popularity is not my main goal. I am just so honoured that HomeMadeS has got an opportunity to introduce itself through this nomination to new readers, therefore, I have been given an opportunity to know you all, share with you, and let you enjoy my photos and stories as I do yours. Hopefully, there are joys we can always enjoyed together and friendship that we can always cherished. Thank you so much for all of you who are voting for me. Very much appreciated.
I have been meaning to capture moments with my camera, to participate on photo events (not to compete, but to contribute. If it gets chosen then it's my good luck, if does not then it is just a little contribution from me to the blogging world with a bonus on my side to get a chance to explore something new), but there's always discomforts springing up and down, on and off. My mood swings, my emotion floats, I can't sleep at night and if I do I always tend to wake up in the middle of the night not be able to go back to sleep anymore. Perhaps, you say 'go see a doctor', but I haven't found a doctor who cares of a patient, who really investigates on what's going on, not only gives 10 minutes of his/her time and then scribble down a piece of paper to go to a chemist. It is so frustrating.
Anyway, I still have a job to do: run the auction to help the kids with cancer. Please, come and join me with information on the auctions you can view on Books for Love blog. I will update the schedule this weekend.
In the meantime, I managed to make Vanilla Bean Pannacotta with Blueberry Compote the other day. This is not to include eggs, so it is alright for me. Recipe for Vanilla Bean Pannacotta, you can view the recipe from New Zealand Herald. I just made bluberry compote to accompany the pannacotta. Recipe is simple: just cook the bluberries with sugar and a squeeze of half lemon until soften a bit. I like to leave it cool a bit, but if you can't wait, then you may serve it hot or warm as well.
Stay healthy, everyone!
