Tree of Happiness!

I'm thrilled to have received a Tree of Happiness award from Beth at Cloth and Fodder. Please do check Beth's blog out - she has some fabulous creations including an octopus cake and even a spider hunting wasp cake!
6 things that make me happy:

1. Dancing in the kitchen with my lovely bf
2. When I bake a cake and it disappears in a flash
3. The colour pink
4. Growing my own herbs from seed
5. Indoor picnics - when the British weather is just too rainy, nothing beats hanging out in the living room with the Sunday papers and picking at cold meats, olives and fantastic cheeses from my local farm shop.
6. Listening to the Puppini Sisters, especially their superb cover of Crazy in Love

Now I'm going to tag...

Caitlin at Engineer Baker, cos she's a geek like me and is even known to produce spreadsheets of her recipes!

Emeline at Sugar Plum - tasty cakes and more.

Bethany at Dirty Kitchen Secrets - Bethany's London based but originates from the Lebanon (and seems to have lived in a lot of other places too), and this diversity really shows in her recipes.

Jeena of Jeena's Kitchen, a master of spices and big, punchy flavours.

Carrie at Fields of Cake, I'd really recommend checking out some of her beautiful creations.

And, last but not least, Kate/Kajal over at Applemint. Check out this blog if you're in need of some food porn...

Please consider yourselves proud owners of the 'Tree of Happiness' award. I really hope you will accept by listing six things that make you happy and then pass the honour on to six other bloggers!

Thank you for the award, and congrats to you!

I'll have to think about this one.

I love it when people gobble up my food! That's a great feeling.
