Liebster Award

Liebster Award

Yippeeeyaayyy!!! Today morning, when I opened my blog to post a recipe, I found that I was awarded the Liebster Award from one of my favorite bloggers- The Recipe Box. Liebster-Award

You can definitely imagine my surprise when, all these days I was thinking whether someone was actually reading what I write. My happiness knew no bounds and I didn’t have anyone to share it with- my hubby was busy playing Golf!!Golf I was glad to find my dearest friend- Anju online and she was super-excited!! Yayyy- A friend in need is a friend indeed!!Cute smileys hug

So, What is a Liebster Award?

With a lot of research, I found that the award was generated in Germany(probably) and is a beautiful way of recognizing lesser known blogs. Liebster means “sweetest, kindest, cutest, nicest, beloved, lovely, pleasant, valued” etc.

Rules to Follow:

Apparently, there are few rules to follow(it keeps varying with each award pass on). So, I will stick to my nominator- The Recipe Box. The rules ask you to thank the person who presented the award to you, have the award on your post, answer the questions that has been asked, award the same to ten other upcoming blogs, ask ten questions to them and list ten random facts about yourself. Cool isn’t it? So, here I go..

To Recipe Box, who thought that I was worthy of this award. Thanks a ton and you know that I am in love with your collection of recipes. Cheers!!Thumbs up


Questions by Recipe Box:

a. What inspired you to start blogging?

As mentioned in my “Straight from my Heart” page- It was accidental when decided to do some real cooking. I used to post few of my culinary achievements in my FB page and thanks to my dearest friend, Anju Rachel who inspired me to watch the Oscar nominated movie “Julie and Julia”. Julie Powell played by Amy Adams challenged herself to make all the 524 recipes from Julia Child’s cook book ‘Mastering the Art of French Cooking’ and blogging all her experiences naming The Julie/Julia Project.
