super sweet -- if super slow

Back in June (!), Helen Howell nominated Larry Kollar and myself for the Super Sweet Blogging Award. Like Helen, nominating a baker's dozen of bloggers would be difficult for me, just because frankly most of the people I would nominate have already received (very deservedly) multiple awards.

Here are the questions for the awards, along with my answers:

Cookies or cake? Cake, so long as it's not too goopy. Strawberry shortcake, malt loaf, carrot cake, or angel food cake with fresh fruit are all good.

Vanilla or chocolate? Vanilla, so long as it's the real deal. I don't like chocolate cake at all.

Favourite sweet treat? Depends on the season. For summer, a bowl of ripe cherries is perfect.

When do you crave sweet things the most? Right after a meal, especially if it was strongly flavoured. It doesn't have to be a big dessert though. Usually I just have a piece of fruit.

Sweet nickname? Can't think of any.

I'm going to nominate Jake at Junk Boat Travels and Tara and Artemis and Friends. Not only are they in-real-life friends, but they blog about totally different things than I do, which helps me get out of my head.
