Tag Archives: Awards



I have been writing, cooking and trying out recipes since a very long time. Being interested in cooking I visit a lot of different blogs. Then I started sending recipes to different blogs, now I have my own blog. My blog has been in existence for only a few months and I have found myself surrounded by the most wonderful world of blogger friends. Everyone is enthusiastic, very talented, encouraging and always appreciating each other.

My purpose of writing this post is to acknowledge and thank my dear fellow blogger friends for the awards that they have been passed onto me while I was on vacation. When I started blogging I had never ever dreamt the recipes that I post would be appreciated so much and that I would be showered with such admiration and lovely awards. I feel blessed and truly honored to receive these awards.  These awards mean a lot to me.

My sincere thanks go to 2 very enthusiastic and talented bloggers 1) Preethi of Authentic Food Treasures and 2) Jyoti of Food Seasons for showering me with the Kreative Blog Award.
