Bye Bye .... Year 2007

Year 2007 is a very special year for me. My dearest and only sister got married in 2007. It was also the year when i started my foodie blog. I have surprised myself that i have added so many recipes and kept the blog active. Now i am sort of hooked on to it. I have also met a lot of new people through my blog.

As for myself I have surprised myself by adding more than 100 recipes which have been viewed by around 5000 visitors. Thanks to my mom and also the more famous cooks like Tarla Dala , Sajeev Kapoor who have aroused this interest of cooking in me. The posts / recipes which i have made have been very well received and i have received some interesting comments from many of you. I have also improved my blogging skills like Changing the format couple of times, Adding new functions to my blog etc.,.Looking at the photographs i can definitely say my photography and presentation skills have also been improved. I have also enjoyed participating in all the events (RCI, AFAM, JFI etc.,)

This year also has been quite revealing seeing my little son take his few steps, talk in his own language and also trying to speak our language. I am thrilled to bits that he enjoy's my cooking.

As for the new year I want to host a event for which i am expecting (hoping for) an active participation from all my co-bloggers.
