Sunshine Award

“Sunshine award”, I have got the nomination for this award two times. First, Aiswarya of My Kitchen Moments gave me the opportunity to participate in this award and second time I got the nomination from Shatarupa of My Kitchen Adventures.

Aiswarya became a good friend of mine through this blog. I always get a warm response from her. She has a lovely blog comprised of traditional South Indian foods. I got to know a lot about her culture and food from that blog, also love to read her charming childhood memories. I got this nomination from her quite at the beginning of my blog writing, don’t even know at that time how to participate in this kind of awards. But as they say, better late than never. 🙂

Shatarupa is my new blog friend and I recently get connected with her. I love to follow her blog as there are some interesting Bengali recipes as well as gorgeous baking items.

I want to thank both of them for this nomination.
