Award and tags

Yummy Blog Award time begins!


I got 4 times this Yummy blog award this weekend! I am really pampered by all of u :) Thank you everyone.
My Dear Dhiv of Dhiviyaskitchen aka "Dessert Queen" is passing me this Yummy Blog award. After few hours later, here come another fellow dear blogger Annu of Flavors of spice who says the pictures make her eat the screen. Ha ha, next time, she should fill her tummy before visiting food blogs.
My eggless stop over to Madhuram egglesscooking who treat her visitors with her unique style of eggless delicacies!
Last but not least, A fellow artist VS Foodie Anjali. J of The big Bite is passing me this award and even tagged me.
I feel like a culinary celebrity in overnight! Guys, I am overwhelmed and my joy knew no limits.
Thank you friends to make my days…

This award started originally by Roopa

"Yummy blog award is the award given to the blog with most yummy recipes/photos”

As per the rules I should also quote my favorite yummy dessert(s) that I have ever prepared/eaten. Here we go with my favorite yummy dessert(s):

*Rasmalai
*Mango mousse
*Sandesh
*Poli
Now it’s my turn to pass on this award.It’s really hard to pick only a few (only four blogs). But rules are rules. So I chose these blog friends to pass this award.

Congrats Friends!

Note to Award winners: If you are willing to play the following "tag", u r the most welcome and not a must.

Rules for the ‘Yummy Blog’ award Receiver:
The person who receives the award should display the "Yummy Blog !" logo on their blog and also the meaning of the award which is "Yummy blog award is the award given to the blog with most yummy recipes/photos".·
The receiver should also quote their favorite yummy-licious :) dessert(s) that they have ever prepared/eaten. Don’t restrict yourself to any dessert, chocolate bars also welcome.·
