Appyayan has turned 1 last Saturday. Yeah, April 18, 2008 was my first post and I introduced myself to this wonderful world of blogging. And this is my 71st post. I can't believe it's already been a year since I discovered blogging accidentally(had no idea before) and started posting my own creations.
I have to say, starting a blog is one of the best thing I have ever done...once started as a hobby has become a part of my life. I took care, I nurtured it as my own child. Not even a day passed, I havn't take a look at this blog at least for a minute. Through this blog, I made so many good friends who never forgot to encourage me and showered their love with lovely comments and feedbacks. I am inspired by them daily. I learned so many new recipes which I never even heard before. So I want to Say A Big Thank You to whole blogging community and food lovers. Thank you for supporting me, trying my recipes and encouraging me in every way......You are the fuel/energy source of my engine....Keep loving me, pls :-)
Through this blog I learned healthy way to make and eat food. Blogging made everyday cooking much more interesting...cooking and then clicking the food and posting it for whole world. I love every bit of it. More importantly, I came out of my phobia of Microwave cooking and made my first microwave cake. Thanks to my blogger friends, whose step-by-step instructions have forced my fear to flew away. So to celebrate my blog's 1st Birthday, I made Microwave ginger carrot cake from Dhivya's Cuisine.
And as a surprise to me, it was quite a nice experience. Now I'm going to explore MC more often. Thanks to Dhivya. I followed her recipe, only exception I made was instead of her butter cream frosting, I did Chocolate glaze on demand from my dear daughter, who was more excited than me (because of the cake, she loves cake!!) ...we did a nice family celebration by cutting and eating my first ever microwave cake.....................
For those, who don't know Appyayan is a bengali word that means to serve guests, I want to serve you with my kitchen experiments and continue showcasing my native cuisine i.e. Bengali cuisine.
Hey, how have you all liked the new look of APPYAYAN...........let me know
