My Blog Turns 2 Today!

February 14, 2010

Hello All,

I am so glad that I completed two years of blogging. I haven’t been so regular in the blogging front. My family keeps me busy all the time. Yet I have managed to sustain this whole effort. This blog now has 88 useful recipes.  I have also received more than 200 comments from my wonderful readers across the world. This is indeed encouraging and motivates me to continue to blog.

The huge response that I got through this blog also inspired me to publish my book last year. The response has been very positive again. Thanks to all of you again.

I take this opportunity to list top 5 recipes in this blog here today:

My Diet Chart also seems to be a big hit. I am glad you find the chart useful.

I hope to keep posting useful recipes in the coming days. Please keep visiting this blog and do not forget to leave your comments and suggestions. I would also love to hear diet recommendations from you.

I wish you all a very blissful and healthy life.

regards

Sharadha
