My 1st Blog Anniversary !!

I cannot believe how time has flown!!, I give all the credit to my hubby who inspired me to try out new recipes and introduced me to the world of blogging. I have made so many friends from around the world with one common goal, to make cooking joyful. I learnt so much from all of you and improved my cooking.

When I was in US I had so much time but now after coming back to India my liabilities have increased , the last three weeks I was away from home attending family functions and get togethers !!, but I am sure I will continue blogging.

I came back this weekend and my hubby reminded me it was my blog anniversary, on this special occasion my hubby requested for a indo chinese dinner as he loves noodles and I prepared this for him.
