I am thrilled and excited to have been nominated for the 2017 Liebster Award by Allen Raimundo from The Traveler 196!!  You definitely need to check his travel blog out because he has traveled to over 40 countries!  His love for travel greatly shows his experiences in traveling through his blog The Traveler 196.

I have never expected to be nominated for the Liebster Award just after launching my new website 2 weeks ago!  This was truly and honor to have been discovered during my early stages of my food blogging journey. With that said, let’s get to know a little more about me.

Here are 10 random facts about me:

  • I am half my son’s age (which leaves you guessing)
  • I hate bell peppers so you’ll rarely see them in my recipe posts
  • I love anything garlic flavored or with garlic. Hey! It’s good for the heart!
  • Cheese pizza is my favorite! Relax, I eat pizza during my monthly femme season.
  • I hate Los Angeles and the 2 hour traffic to get to a destination.
  • Love road trips and traveling.
  • Love Football season. Baseball and basketball are boring to watch but keep me entertained off football season
  • I have an American Pitbull Terrier named Daja like “Deja vu“. She’s 7 weeks now.
  • I have a S&W 9mm Shield that I conceal carry and other weapons so I am well protected!
  • I don’t think you want to Fck with me, right? LOL

The Liebster Award 2017 is an award that exists only on the internet, and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

Within the guidelines, I am to nominate 5 other bloggers (or up to 15) to receive this Liebster Award.  The rules are as follows:

The 2017 Liebster Award Rules:

If you have been nominated for The Liebster Award and have accepted it, write a blog post about the Liebster award and “pay it forward” by following these steps:

  1. Thank the person who has nominated you and include their blog on to your blog.
  2. Display the award on your blog — by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a “widget” or a “gadget”. (Note that the best way to do this is to save the image to your own computer and then upload it to your blog post.) At the bottom of this post I’ve included a whole lot of images you can use for your 2017 Liebster Award.
  3. Provide 10 Random Facts about yourself. (Optional – This will engage your readers to learn more fun facts about you! *HINT-HINT*)
  4. Nominate 5 other blogs who you feel deserves this award.
  5. List these rules in your posts. (You may copy and paste mine or visit the official site here)
  6. Inform the people/blogs that you nominated that they have been nominated for the Liebster Award and provide a link for them to your post

(I’m sorry but the rest that I have nominated never confirmed my nomination so I deleted them.  Your LOSS!)

Therefore, this is why I am called “Naughty” Kitchen…


Here are my answers for The Traveler 196 questions:

  • How long have you been blogging?
    • I started blogging on a free WordPress site back in 2015 but was not in it. Then, I decided to buy a domain and launch my blog this month. Technically, I have been blogging for less than a month!
  • What advice/tips do you have for new bloggers?
    • Just start blogging today and be original. Be yourself! Join Facebook/Pinterest Blogging groups cause they can help you when you are stuck. Remember, they were in our shoes before. Post to all of your social media platforms!
  • How do you overcome writers block?
    • I take a break and do something else that’s not related to writing/blogging a post – cook, play with the puppy, watch episodes that I’ve missed. Usually, when you are distracted and you come back, you’ll come up with the motivation to generate ideas on your blog.
  • What impact do you have plan on having on the world?
    • I am hoping that my recipes will help my readers gain a healthy lifestyle.
  • What is your favorite blog post written by you and why?
    • My favorite blog post is my recipe for Spicy Glazed Chicken. This recipe is similar to your Chinese fast food menu – Orange Chicken but with a Spicy kick to it.  It’s my popular post so far in my meat-eaters category.

Now here are my questions for My Nominees:

  • How long have you been blogging?
  • What advice do you have for new bloggers?
  • How do you overcome writers block?
  • Is blogging your full-time business or is it a hobby?
  • What do you want your readers to gain and learn from your blog?
