It is with great pleasure that I share this post of mine with you all.. especially because this is my 100th blog post in my journey of two years as a food blogger.

I still remember the day when I first started blogging and shared my first post 🙂
The nervous excitement and the mixed bag of emotions that I felt at that time, cannot be explained in words!!
It was akin to a small child performing on a stage for the first time or like a debutant actor/ singer’s first film releasing.
Because when one is showcasing his/ her talents for the first time, we the artistic people always worry about how their labour of love would be received by the people.
Whether our work would be appreciated or not … will we get bouquets or brickbats for what we are presenting before the world is always our concern!!
But I must say I am so thankful to all my viewers and followers, who lapped up every post of mine and complimented me with an open heart..which inspired me to go on and reach to my 100th blog post 😊
Blogging has always been my passion and now it has become an integral part of my life.

My love for collecting knick knacks from the places I travel to..to go along as props in my blogs..presenting them before you all, and waiting with baited breath for your lovely comments to pour in 😊
And while I kept writing blog posts and participating in various online cooking contests .. winning accolades and prizes for my recipes..I kept sharing my joy in form of recipe posts with you all on my social media pages.
