OM NOM Nominations - 1.1

Ok, here we go with the first OM NOM NOM Nominations.

First up is Hello, Hawaii, How Are You? Pulled Chicken from Coconut & Lime.
Coconut Lime - pulled chicken
I don't know if it is because it reminds me of summer and warmer weather or if the sandwich just looks incredibly tasty. Either way when I read this, I literally started to drool with anticipation to make it. Someone get me a towel. Definitely OM NOM NOM worthy in my book.

Next is a Szechuan Syle Hot and Sour Soup from So Many Cookbooks...So Little Time
So Many Cookbooks - Szechuan Style Hot and Sour

First of all, I like the idea of getting two meals out of one package of pork tenderloins...particularly when we're just cooking for the two of us and tenderloins usually come two per package. That's a lot of pork for two people. Secondly, with all this cold weather in our area, a good Hot and Sour soup just sounds really good right about now...and right in time for the Chinese New Year!

The final choice this week goes to 5 Star Foodie and her Rack of Lamb with Saffron Cream.
5 Star Foodie - Rack of Lamb with Saffron Cream

This recipe gets an OM NOM for being creative, upscale and comforting all at the same time. As an added bonus she includes a dessert recipe for a Fruit Paella which sounds delicious and a great finisher for that meal.

I also want to give a shout out to the Inaugural Luncheon menu which included Seafood Stew, Duck Breast with Cherry Chutney, Herb Roasted Pheasant with Wild Rice Stuffing, Molasses Whipped Sweet Potatoes, and a Cinnamon Apple Sponge Cake. A big OM NOM NOM to that menu!!!


  1. Thank you so much! I am truly honored. I will make sure I write about the Om Nom Nomination on my next blog post (probably Monday).

  2. Wow! I am honored. Thank you very much!
    Let me know how you like the recipe. It's one of my favorites.

  3. Just wanted to let you know that I updated the original rack of lamb post to include the award. Thanks so much again!
