These Girls Are on Fire

Background music for today’s post:

Alright, so maybe not. But figuratively speaking, these girls really are on fire.

Yesterday I was kindly nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Kyra at Scribbles and Sprinkles. This girl is seriously awesome. She even adapted a recipe from my old blog and just posted the pictures (delicious-looking!).


Here are the rules for accepting this award:

  • Link back to the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate other blogs for the award.
  • List 7 random things about you.
  • Put the award pic on your acceptance post.

So, here are the “girls on fire” that I nominate for this award:

Instead of doing the old-fashioned linking to their homepage, the hyperlink with each of their blog names is a post that I found particularly “on fire” this week!

As for the 7 random things about me, I figured this would also be a good time to participate in Kyra’s Fun Fact Friday:


1. I have a poster of Sheldon right behind my mushroom chair in my dorm room. Sometimes it’s a little creepy.

2. Sometimes the mirror in my dorm room gets super foggy (like when you’re taking a shower?) because of the steam from cooking my soup…

3. I complain about the cold weather just as much as anyone, but really, I love it.


4. My friend is trying to convince me to watch My Little Pony. And I think I’ve finally cracked.

5. Even though I haven’t kept up with New Girl, I found a clip on Hulu of Nick and Jess kissing and my heart skipped a beat. Love them together!

6. I was supposed to go and run my car at least once this week, so the same thing didn’t happen as last time. But it was warm one day, so I figured that takes care of things. I hope.

7. My animals want me to share more pictures with you. Camera hogs.



And finally, Friday wouldn’t be complete without another FFFFriday Food Finds!


You can read all about Friday Food Finds and my past posts here:

Here are four allergy-free recipes that caught my eye this week:

First up is an Egg-Free and Tomato-Free Paleo Meatloaf from The Paleo Mom.


Next is a simple Paleo Mousska from Chocolate and Raspberries that I saw during WIAW.


While searching on Pinterest for easy GAPS recipes, I stumbled upon this 15-minute Chicken and Peas Sauce from The Iron You.


And finally, a recipe for Butternut Squash Lasagana from Conscious Eatery that will be perfect with just a few adjustments.


So, let’s turn up the heat, get the fire going (or electricity going for those of us without gas stoves), and fingers crossed for a great weekend of cooking!

If you missed my last post, check out WIAW for a recipe for Butternut Squash Shepherd’s Pie.

  1. Awe thanks and what a great idea to link up to various interesting posts…I’m going to have check them out! I’m dying at the photos of your pets. Pretty sure mine are somewhat similar. I wish I shared your love for the cold weather…I complain about it…and I still hate it LOL.

    • Lol. Do you like anything about winter? I’m basically in it for the clothes (I much prefer jeans over shorts), the warm food, and the holidays. Other than that, I’m kind of ready for Spring to come now 🙂

  2. I loved My Little Pony as a child. It was one of several shows I couldn’t get enough of on Cartoon Network (that and Pound Puppies, Scooby Doo, The Flintstones, Dexter’s Laboratory.) I actually might write a post dedicated to ‘All Things 90s’ – what a great decade 🙂

  3. Hi Madison
    Random Fact- I love the rain!!!!
    Recipes That Caught My Eye: Egg-free & Tomato-free Paleo Meatloaf & Butternut Squash Lasagna
    Weekend Plans: Finally a calm weekend, maybe a movie 🙂
    Have a great weekend!

    • I love the rain too. Especially thunderstorms. I think they are so soothing. I used to have a radio that had nature sounds and one of them was a thunderstorm. Complete with lightning and everything 🙂

      Hope you got to watch a good movie.

  4. Hey lovely!! Thanks the awesome nomination 🙂 You made my day with your sweet words, and I love the way you linked back to a post of each person you chose that you particularly enjoyed…very thoughtful!

    • You’re welcome! I wanted to take it a step farther than normal, you know? Whenever people link to other blogs I think it’s cool, but sometimes I just get lost in all of the posts. I like to know what draws people to a particular blog, and I think showing my favorite posts of theirs is just the way to do it!

  5. Yay thanks for the nomination!! Made my day! My Little Pony was my favorite show back in the day!!! Loved it. Same with Sailor Moon ha. Haha, loving that Sheldon poster. That show is just amazing. You are so kind that’s for those lovely words friend! Happy Friday!

  6. Awwr! Thanks so much for the shout out, girlie! And the Brony thing seriously cracked me up. Me and the boy were actually just having a conversation about MLP the other day and he told me about the whole brony movement… I seriously didn’t believe him at first, but it secretly warms my heart that people other than kids enjoy shows like that 😉

  7. Why thank you for the nomination girl!! 🙂 Can I just tell you, I’ve listened to the song on this post over & over again! Alicia Keys is amazing.

  8. My dad would love your Sheldon poster. I think if he could trade me and my brother in to have Sheldon as his own son he would, he loves him that much, haha.
