Savi-Ruchi Turns One..

I posted my first recipe on 18th Aug 2008 with zero knowledge on blogging. Surprisingly, I never visited any foodblog before that. Slowly started finding some great foodblogs around & also made alot of friends. I have the same zeal as I had one year before (touch wood) & want to post hundreds of more recipes. Also, what more can I expect than these wonderful awards that made their way to celebrate my blog anniversary. Thanks a lot Lakshmi, Suparna & Jayasri. They are indeed the precious gifts, my blog received for its first birthday.

7 things about me…
1. Me..., a chatterbox. I can talk to strangers as if I knew them for many years. However, my friends circle is very limited. I open my heart to only very few.
2. I like collecting designer & silk sarees, but often postpone wearing them.
3. I love experimenting in my kitchen. However, my blog hopping is limited to few tried & tested ones. I do try a lot of recipes, but often fail to note down the ingredients immediately. After 15 days, I forget what went into that recipe & the photo goes to my thrash.
4. I absolutely love yogurt in any form.
5. I love planning for any occasion. Be it wedding, upanayanam or naming ceremony. I plan & select my accessories to match in with my saree. I can plan as early as 6-10months before the occasion.
6. I hate rats. I get all kinds of rats in my dream, even if I happen to see them once.
7. I dont like any kind of soft drinks or fresh fruit juices. I forcefully sip fruit juices & milkshakes. I prefer home made buttermilk, ragi ambli, lime soda (with salt).

1.What is your current obsession?
Planning for my visit to India :D

Red kurtha & jeans

5. What are you listening to right now?
6. What do you think about the person who tagged you?
  • Lakshmi is always there for me from my initial blogging days. I have learnt a lot about blogging, html editing & widgets from her. I love her North Karnataka recipes.

  • I knew Jayasri recently & she has some new recipes at her blog that I am waiting to try.
7. If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
Can I get 2 houses? One in Mysore & the other in Chikmagalur/Agumbe?
