Hey guys! It’s the 3rd birthday of my blog and I am so excited! This amazing journey started 3 years back, wow hard to believe that. Time sure does fly. I would have never in my dreams thought of doing food blogging and actually doing it full time. I guess that is why they say, life is super unpredictable and it surprises you in ways you could never imagine.
Out of everything that I have done in life, I have to say that blogging has given me the most happiness and creative satisfaction. It’s not only about the recipes, it’s about the whole process and the learning. Sure I have become a better cook and baker thanks to my food blog but it has also taught me a lot of things. My blog taught me that nothing comes easy. If you want to succeed at anything in life, you have to bloody work hard for it. It also taught me to never give up. Yes there will be days when you will feel down and feel like no one likes what you do but keep your chin up and move forward, sooner or later success will be yours. It has taught me to work hard and remain focused even when life throws challenges.
And all this has been possible because of YOU, my readers! I am so eternally grateful to all of you who read my blog and support me in this journey. I really really appreciate it. As a token of thank you, I am giving away 3 of my favorite things for summer to 3 lucky readers!
1. Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker: it’s summers and what better than homemade ice cream! This one makes sorbet, frozen yogurt and of course ice cream!
2. Lodge Cast-Iron Reversible Grill/Griddle: grilling season is not complete without this amazing cast iron griddle.
3. Hamilton Beach 8-Cup Food Processor: this is my favorite food processor, I use it all the time and it makes all the prep work so easy.
