[Just interested in the Baked Pumpkin-Cranberry Oatmeal Pudding recipe? Check the link at the bottom of the page. But first, please go vote for my blog!!]
Happy Friday, everyone!
True to my word yesterday, here I am yet again with another (very short) blog post. I just had to share the news that Diet, Dessert and Dogs is one of 20 blogs nominated for a SHAPE Magazine “Best Blog” Award!! I am over-the-moon excited. I’ve been reading that magazine since at least 60 pounds ago (I tend to go up and down, you understand). 😉 And now they’ve recognized DDD as a healthy eating blog–whoo hooooo!
I know it’s Friday (of a long weekend, yet), but I hope you’ll take just a few seconds to hop over to the voting page and click your choice (of course I hope it’s moi, but even if it’s not–take a look at those amazing other bloggers on the list!).
And as always, THANK YOU to everyone who reads this blog, who stops by regularly, who comments, who links up to Wellness Weekend and the SOS Challenge–thank you for supporting this blog with your presence and input!
PS And let’s not forget the (healthy) food. . . I’ve got a guest post up today on the XgfX blog (that’s shorthand for “Vegan and Gluten Free”)–a perfectly seasonal Baked Pumpkin-Cranberry Oatmeal Pudding (and many thanks to my friend Cara who first suggested this variation last year, which she based on my original!). Yum. Recipe here.
“Congrats, Mum, on the nomination and everything, but we cannot tell a lie. . . .we’d say that Pumpkin-Cranberry Oatmeal Pudding is way more interesting than a blog award any day!”

Lovely looking oatmeal, by the way! I have just been reading about the cranberry challenge and I’m really intrigued. Cranberries are a beautiful fruit.
Thanks so much, Isobelle. Much appreciated! And I love cranberries. I don’t even think they really need sweetening most of the time any more. They really are beautiful!

Leslie Caplan says
I’ve voted for you, Ricki. I love your blog and recipes. This one is perfect for my mother (of course I’ll have to try it too!!!).
I made your scallion pancake redux recipe a few months ago. One funky recipe to make, but they came out great. I froze one after I cooked it, then toasted it in a dry fry pan. It tasted even better.
You have a wonderful, unique way of making foods interesting, and I’m not a vegetarian!
The best to you always…
Leslie, thank you so much. You just made my long weekend! And yes, you must try this! 🙂
I voted for you of course!
Thanks so much (yay!!) 😀
