These are a few of my favourite blogs (and bloggers – some new, some old)…

... because they’re such a pleasure to read, because the photographs are gorgeous enough to make you want to lick your monitor when they’re on your screen, because the writers’ personality comes through as warm and genuine, because their recipes are innovative and have that unmistakable stamp of tweaked originality, because because because...

But mainly because, to me personally, they represent that extremely elusive blend of a pleasant blog that’s easy on the eye, that has intelligent and interesting and funny writing and, most of all, scrummy recipes achievable even by the likes of me in my kitchen – this combination spells perfection, in my opinion. I'm pretty sure a lot of the food bloggers out there will feel the same way!

Ladies (and gents, if any), please take a bow!

Suganya, of Tasty Palettes

The Cooker

Evolving Tastes

Nupur, of One Hot Stove

Hema, of Vegetarian Concoctions

Coffee, of The Spice Café

Sunita, of Sunita’s World

Manisha, of Indian Food Rocks

Busy with so much right now, and hardly spending any time online, but I came here to find quite a party going on. And what an honor to find me and my blog in this list, sharing space with some of my own favorites. Likewise to you on all those reasons too, Shyam!

Anu said...

Great to know that I too am taking part in spreading the joy of greens, Shyam! :) Very nice to hear from you again.

'Busy' might be overstating things a bit when explaining my absence; perhaps lethargy would be more like it..;) Oh, no reason in particular; just turned a year older and have been indulging in a bit of 'spacing out' in the name of contemplation.

How're things at your end? Spring in full swing?

Suganya said...

You made my day, Shyam. I can't tell you how much it means to me, coming from you. Because I envy (yes, envy) your diction and sense of humor. I always think why I can't be funny like she is :)

Coffee said...

Totally agree with you - they are all interesting food bloggers with that extra "something" about them. Nice post!
