2) nominate up to 5 bloggers to take part
So without further ado:
1. The most beautiful post
Er, this one is kind of tough! I'm not sure any of my posts are really beautiful...at least, looking back through my archives, my photos have improved? Anyway I'm going with my post about coconut tapioca, just because I really like this photo! Also, the coconut tapioca is nice and refreshing, perfect for the summer!
2. The most popular post
Well, I guess I'm not surprised by this one! According to the stats on Blogger, my post on making bunny cookies for Chinese New Year is the most popular post, by far. I'm glad, because that's one of my personal favorites :)
3. The most controversial post
Er, I don't think any of my posts have been controversial, but I suppose I will use this post I did on the Chinese New Year parade from a few years ago, simply because of the slightly odd comments I got about this photo! (True, this isn't a food post, but I don't post about food all the time!)
4. The most helpful post
Alright, this one was easy--definitely my post on making my favorite dumplings. Actually I'm only saying that because I know Pyota has actually used this post to help him make dumplings ;)
5. The post that was surprisingly successful
This post on quinoa salad definitely surprised me with how popular it was, because I just had no idea quinoa was that popular! It does make me giggle how many times people get to this post though because they're searching for David Lynch's quinoa recipe; trust me, don't bother with that one!
6. The post that did not get the attention it deserved
Uh, definitely this post with my cupcake in honor of Robert Smith! Come on!! It's Robert Smith in cupcake form!! Well, anyway, *I* thought it was cool, heh.
7. The post I'm most proud of
Haha, definitely the post about winning 2nd place at the LES Girls Club Cookie Swap! I mean, first of all the post is full of cookies. Secondly, it was all for a good cause! And then, of course, on a purely selfish level, getting a giant basket of awesome stuff, meeting Julie Christopher from King Arthur Flour, and getting to chat to Miriam Eberhard. A good note to end this post on :)
Oh wait, and here are the people I'm tagging (and hopefully they haven't been tagged already!)-
