Sunshine Award

Cooking my way around the world feels like young love.

One minute I’m giddy with excitement, thinking about what it will be like to cook and feast on the next 3 1/2 years of meals.

The next minute, I’m dumbstruck with awe as I ponder just how many countries I have left in my challenge.

I mean, really.

I’ve done 7 and I’ve got 188 to go… !!!

With an average of 4 recipes per country that’s about … 752 more recipes…

And this week I’m putting together 7 dishes for Armenia alone!

Some one pick me up off of the floor. Please.


Now. I’m going to get all mushy on you.

I am so very grateful for YOU, my dedicated readers and fans, who click by to see what’s cooking at Global Table. You keep me motivated and happy! I’ve been both humbled and honored by your interest in my little project. Some of you have even made my recipes! Wow. What a compliment. Thank you.

Less than two months in, the blog is getting quite a bit of attention. I’ve been featured on FOX 23 news and will be in the May issue of TulsaPeople magazine. Who would have thought… (besides, perhaps, my personal cheerleader, my husband… and, of course, my mom).

Most recently Global Table was honored with the Sunshine Blog Award. Super! And, incidentally, what a great name for an award! Again, I find myself so amazed and thankful.

I wish I could fit you all around my Global Table. Wouldn’t that be fun?

    Thanks for the list! I am so excited you are doing this, and I enjoy reading and seeing the pictures of your meals! Keep it up!

    • You seem to have more international food stores and markets where you live. Thankfully Tulsa has a few specialty shops which keeps this project afloat. :)

  3. Hi, Sasha! It was great to meet you at the Tulsa Bloggers Meet Up this evening! (As I was drawn like a magnet to your beautiful daughter *giggle*) I will definitely be here on a regular basis, checking out your weekly cooking adventures! Good luck!

  4. Dear Sasha,
    A million thanks for the award, for your words…my blog has been running for only a few months so I am in the does-anyone-read-me? stage…so I am glad to know someone does read me!!!
    I am also glad to see my video has been of help for the famous “repulgue”…
    Your blog is great…food can save the world? I am sure it would…people would understand each other better around a table plenty of delicious dishes…
    Thanks again,
    Take care,

    • Cristina, your blog is beautiful and full of interesting information. Keep up the good work and you’ll have a big following soon :)
