Liebster Award – I haven’t even heard of this term before. Have you? Well if u are like me, a small introduction about the award would help. This award origins from Germany, the term “Liebster” means DEAREST and this is given to bloggers by other bloggers.

Are you wondering why I am writing about this award instead of any normal recipe post??
