My first Award :D

Sangi of SIMPLY DELICIOUS , Shanthi of Shanthi's krishnakumar's cookbook , Ayesha of Life today and Arti Agarwal of Breakfast to Dinner have nominated me for this lovely Kreativ Blogger award, which is my 1st award. I thank you all for appreciating my work and for encouraging me to do much better next time. This award will always be special and close to my heart :)

The Kreative Blogger Award comes with some rules:-

  1. You must thank the person who has given you the award.
  2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
  3. Link the person who has nominated you for the award.
  4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
  5. Nominate 7 other Kreativ bloggers.
  6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
  7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs to let them know they have been nominated.
Now for the seven things that you might find interesting about me :-

1. I am 23 years old, happily married from 4 1/2 years :) and mother of a 2 year old. And I love to cook for my husband and my son.

2. I am very very talkative. People around me never get bored ;) Or should I say they get bored of my talking so much ;-) I don't make friends easily :( But, I must admit that I have made many friends here :)

3. I am half Keralite and half Bangalorean. But, I am born and brought up in Bangalore.

I am crazy about collecting recipes. I started collecting recipes from age 14. Whenever i used to see recipes in newspaper or any magazine, I used to write the recipe in my book and stick the picture of that recipe to my book. Thus, I have many books like this and lost many more when moving from US to UK :(

I am not a big foodie .I eat everything except KARELA .But, I love cooking very very much. Right now I have this craze about learning international cuisines :)

I like learning new languages. Right now I know to speak and understand these- Hindi, Urdu, Malayalam, Kannada, Arabic, English(US and UK) and very little bit of Tamil.

I love traveling and sight seeing. I have visited many states in US, while living there. And my dream destination is Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, Italy, Paris and the list goes on...But, I miss my INDIA very much :( No place in the world can be more beautiful than your homeland.

Wish I had an option of nominating all my friend here. Because I really love so many blogs. But I can nominate only 7. So..
my nominations for this award:

1.Akal of Akal's saappadu
2.Lubna of Yummy food
3.Divya Vikram of Dil se
4.Suchitra of Simple Indian food
5.Humaira of Humaira's food passion
6. Divya Kudua of Easy cooking
7 .Noor of Ya Salam Cooking
