{A}romatics: #AtoZChallenge 2016

Day One of the #AtoZChallenge!Hello Luv-lies,

Before I dive right into this challenge this year (I tried two years ago but didn’t get too far…*hanging head down in shame*) but this year I am extremely excited about the challenge.  I think that two years ago, I got stalled at the Letter ‘M’  because I just plain ol’  ran out of creative ideas.  What makes this year different?  Focus.  And my love of this year’s theme!

Over the last few years my relationship with food has completely changed. Before, I had no interest in food. I was simply a consumer of food. All I wanted to know was, when it was time to eat!   What changed?  I got bitten by the all things foodie! – magazines to food- inspired television shows.  Now, I can’t seem to get my fill *cheap pun intented* of all that is food!

So now I’m here!   Day One of the #AtoZChallenge!

Without further ado, I give you the {a}wesome:

Letter {A}.  {A} is for {A}romatics

Aromatics is said to be the combination of , mostly veggies and herbs – although at times it can include meat – that are heated in some type of *good* fat at the beginning of preparing a dish.  The result – deep flavors imparted into your favorite dish! You see, it’s the heating of the fats that helps the ingredients release their addictive aromas.

…. and all those wonderful scents are what memories are made of. ….

What’s your favorite food scent?  Where does that scent transport you to?

Do Tell…..

Next….. THE LETTER {B}

{April Blog Challenge}: Theme Reveal-Blogging From A to Z Challenge – April 2016

Good Morning Luv-lies,

      It’s been a little while since the last time that I’ve posted. I’m sure that the lack of posts have rendered this, otherwise vibrant and fun space, appear forgotten and abandoned. Abandoned…Temporarily -*Okay, a lot ‘temporarily’ time lapse*. Forgotten….Never that!- *Despite the way it looks…because looks can be deceiving, Luv-lies*. 

      I kinda of chalked it up to ‘blogger’s block‘. So what better way to get back into the game, than an exciting blog challenge?

                                           *drum roll please* 
                  ‘Blogging From A to Z April Challenge 2016‘.

  What?
Say you is the ‘A to Z Challenge 2016‘?

   It all started in March of 2010 when  Arlee Bird, the wonderful blogger over at Tossing It All Out and creator of this inspirational quest challenged her then, 200 new blogger-friends, to an April blogging challenge – blogging everyday, except Sunday.  To up the annie,  the posts had to be thematically from A to Z.   That year 100 bloggers not only took part in the challenge, but passed the word on to other blogger friends. Who told blogger friends…. who told blogger friends… who told – *You get the picture* – to the tune of 1300 bloggers taking the challenge, one year later!

    Three years ago,  Mina Lobo, an A to Z blogger, added another twist to the challenge by introducing the notion of blogging with a theme.  And the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge 2016

                                  Theme Reveal was born!
