Updates! Updates!

Dear foodies,


Yes, lots and lots of exciting updates! This space has been silent and dull all of last month...but life outside has been full of activities and wonderful turns. Soon after my previous post I boarded the plane to India to attend my brother's wedding! I got there even before the bride, my dear sis-in-law, so I could shop, for them ;-) There was one round before my brother came, one after and many more in between :) My brother strictly warned me against getting the camera to the wedding hall, lest I disappear from his wedding pics :D We had a mehendi function at home and these photos are from the arrangements my aunt and I did for it.

Happy happy married life Vijai & Pallavi, love you!
A few weeks back I got an email from Indibloggies congratulating me on my blog being nominated under the "Best Food Indiblog" category! I am thrilled to see my blog share the space with so many of my favorite food blogs! My sincere thanks to the Indibloggies jury and to all of you who suggested my blog for nomination. You guys are fantastic! A huge thanks to each one of you dear readers. Its your kind words of encouragement that have kept this blog going for so long and brought it to its current state. Thank you, thank you soo much! :-) Now I request you to click on the icon below and vote for me and the other fabulous blogs that've been nominated in various categories. Vote for us and make our day so much more sweeter :) You have until the 10th of December to vote.

Now for the biggest news of all.....I got Engaged! Today !! We decided to take the leap just last week and today we got officially engaged!! Well, e-engaged since the event took place in India :-P A month back if somebody had told me this was going to happen I would have laughed it out, but now its all fallen into place beautifully & I'm happy for it :)

Vamsi is blissfully dreaming of hot meals landing on his dinner table every day, I think you guys need to explain to him the travails of marrying a food blogger ;-) But I can promise you one thing, there's going to be loooots of cooking ahead, so stay tuned :)

Congratulations, Priya! Here's wishing you much happiness ahead!

Many congratulations!
People like you are an inspiration to new bloggers like me..

And about cooking after marriage, the only problem vamsi might have is to wait patiently 'looking' at the food on the table, till you get the perfect 'click' ! :)

Enjoy yourself!

Wow! Congrats Priya! I am sooooo happy for you! Yeah I pity Vamsi but again he should feel special as marrying an akshayapaatram altogether and no way he's going to starve even once in his rest of his life! Take care and expecting lots of posts from you! Wishing Vijay and Pallavi a very happy married life! Enjoy!

Hi Priya,

Since almost a year I have been visiting your blog. Your photos are awesome and make me want to try out the recipe. I have even tried some of your recipes. My kids love the ribollita recipe. Your recent granola recipe disappeared within a couple of days of making it.
Congratulations on your engagement and good wishes to your brother on his wedding.
