My 50th Post.....A quick recap!!

Yeah i know most people celebrate their 100th post and 50 isn’t a huge number but screw all that! I'm proud that I have made it to my 50th post... so wat if i'm a bit late!

It seemed just yesterday that I started this blog…sorry not yesterday, 5months to be more precise but I must admit i wouldn’t have been here without your support , so thanks to all of you.... you are so special to me!!

I also feel so elated that my blog is being liked and followed by many fellow bloggers, i am very glad i could make a place in your heart through Temptations. I hope this bond continues for ever. Your love n encouragement means a lot to me.

I figured since it is my 50th post I would quickly run through some of my interesting temptations . Sorry, there isn’t any new recipe in this particular post. But I promise I will make it up to you in my next post!

So here are some of my best dishes.

Click on the name for the recipe details.
































And there we have it....My 50th post.

I hope it wasn't too lame or boring for you.

As per my promise i will come with an interesting temptation soon.

Till then Adios.
