My first event - Story Telling with Food!

As I have been promising in my previous posts, finally I am announcing the event to all of you.

I have always been amazed and humbled at the positive response that I have been receiving for my little blog. From the bottom of my heart, a big thank you to all of you who have been kind enough to keep coming, viewing my simple recipes and giving me some real good feedback. I am so grateful to the lovely friends that I have made in the process. A big thank you to the Almighty, who has showered a real blessing in the form of this blog!

OK, a little into the event. I am sure everybody who reads my blog posts know that I just do not go directly into the recipe. I love to have some random ramblings, about anything before I actually go on with the post of the day. I feel that this kind of a practice would not only improve my writing skills, but it helps a lot with connecting to the people who are reading your posts. So here you go, the theme is this:

There must be some food of yours that arouses quite a lot of memories. Just like I mentioned how much the Vettu Cake reminds me of my umma. Something similar - it might be some situation, your HD, a lost love, your giggling friends, the kids, anything... If there is a particular item that reminds you of something, I want you to recreate the recipe and post it along with the story. Sounds interesting? Great!!! :)

And what more? I am planning a giveaway for this event. It is not sponsored and I am arranging it myself for pure satisfaction. The prize will be one giveaway and I will be deciding it based on the location of the winner. I will keep you posted on what 's up, but definitely it will be related to cooking!!! ;)

Now for the rules of the event and giveaway:

1. Only one entry per person - archived included but do update to include point 2.
2. Displaying the logo on the entry is much appreciated and then link it back to this page.
