Liebster Award!

Quick update post! I’ve been nominated for the Liebster award by another new blogger, GreenMind/VegHeart at and I’m quite flattered! Thank you!!


That said, I might bend the rules I was given a little bit, because I am terrible at following directions! I want to pass the fun along, but am just as interested about my readers as other bloggers- so I’ll nominate backwards… if I have any readers that would like to join the fun, answer my questions and/or give 10 facts about yourself in the comments below! (fyi, it may take a little while for comments to go up, but I try to be fast on approvals!)

The questions I was asked by GreenMind/VegHeart:

  1. What’s your best dish?
    This is a really hard question! Best as in “the one I make to show off”? Because that’s enchiladas… but best as in, “the one I make and feel the happiest”? That would have to be Dragon Noodles! (I’ll get recipes for these out eventually!)
  1. Where’s a place you’d like to visit?
    There aren’t many places that wouldn’t make this list, but most immediately, I’d like to do a lecturing tour at Hogwarts!
  1. Who’s your favorite fictional character?
    My traveling companion (read: Skyrim character) Sparkles the Destruction Mage
  1. Vanilla or chocolate?
  1. If money were no object, what would you be doing right now?
    Wandering in the woods, trying to learn to talk to trees!
  1. What is your favorite childhood memory?
    Watching an older mage mistakenly cast a fireball in a small room- nothing was damaged except the poor fellow’s eyebrows, but it was freeing to see that even older, more powerful mages messed up, too!!
  1. Autumn or spring?
  1. What is your spirit animal?
    Not sure I have a spirit animal, but the last time I summoned a patronus, it was a fox!
  1. Favorite outdoor activity?
    Mischief! Or, alternately, running backwards away from Frost Trolls…
  1. What do you think is the greatest challenge the next generation will face?
    Necromancy. The threat is real, folks.

10 Facts about the ArchMage

  1. I like grocery shopping, and even enjoy wandering grocery stores I’ve not been to, just to look around.
  2. I used to search for “how to hide vegetables in your kid’s food”, then use the best ideas in food I made for myself… I’ve come a long way…
  3. I like talking to people about what they find hard or discouraging about cooking, and trying to find simpler, more straightforward recipes to make cooking more fun for them!
  4. My left foot is a full half size bigger than my right foot.
  5. I REALLY like pointy hats.
  6. The spell I most wish I was better at is “Resist Netflix”
  7. The hardest part about writing this food blog is remembering to measure ingredients before adding them.
  8. I used to only be able to handle the juice (not the chunks) in mild salsa, and have learned to handle more spice, such that now I add hot sauce and red pepper flakes to food ON PURPOSE!
  9. I occasionally make certain dishes so that I can have an excuse to cover them in ketchup… sloppy joes, roasted potatoes, chili, there are many others….
  10. I can talk about food, cooking, and recipes all day- and do, sometimes… 😀

My questions for you:

  1. What is your favorite thing about cooking?
  2. What is the biggest challenge you face in the kitchen?
  3. Favorite spell to cast?
  4. What species is your familiar?
  5. What is your preference: wand, staff, other?
  6. Favorite mode of transportation?
  7. What book have you read the most recently?
  8. What is your favorite thing about yourself?
  9. What thing, if spotted at a farmer’s market, can you not stop yourself from bringing home?
  10. What fruit or vegetable, despite your best efforts, can you not stand?

I hope other bloggers keep up their good work, and we’ll all keep making magic! Have a happy weekend!


About FoodArchMage

I'm enthusiastic about food, but wanted to share recipes and write without the seriousness that frequently accompanies heath food... so I decided to keep it lighthearted and write from a mage's perspective!
