Recap of 2008

After a week of short break to the other side of California, I am here to post something before the year-end! Thanks for my readers who already started pouring “Best Wishes for the upcoming New Year”.
Thank you for your continuous warm encouragements and Thank God for giving enough food.

What I learnt through this blog?
I improved my culinary skills; discovered many regional Indian cooking and some International. I explored Vegan cooking which was totally a new territory for me and inspired me to cook some vegan dishes.
Other than food, photography become my new passion, I look forward how to present even the simplest recipe in very attractive way which I enjoy most than cooking!

What I innovated this year?
More than 100 recipes this year but let see what I whipped up something unusual in my kitchen 2008. Hey, don’t you feel like a Rock Star to tell, you have the Best of 2008 to share with your readers!
