A Century & Not Out!!!

"Try leaving a friendly trail of little sparks of gratitude on your daily trips. You will be surprised how they will set small flames of friendship that will be rose beacons on your next visit."
- Dale Carnegi

Some 8 months ago when I started Spice Corner I had no idea it would become integral part of my life. One day while as usual browsing the internet, a newly wedded girl, away from her family and friends living in a strange country stumbled upon a magical world of Food Blogs. She looked at each and every blog with awe and started trying the recipes from there. Some turned out to be a crowd pleaser and some were absolute disaster. Slowly she started gaining confidence with cooking and started giving her own touch to different recipes. At last she decided to post her experiments on net so that she can keep track all the recipes which she learnt from her mother, MIL, cook books and blogs. Yes, Spice Corner was just a backup for all the recipes I tried and loved by my family and friends.
That was just the beginning… Never in my wildest dream had I imagined to meet so many wonderful people from all over the globe. Since then my whole purpose of blogging has changed and I have found a new meaning for blogging. Spice Corner is not just a food blog to me, its much more than that. It has become a very special place where we all blogger buddies gather and share not just recipes but our memories and experience. It has made me realize that friendship and love has no boundary and barrier. Spice Corner showcases my passion for food and life and I am enjoying each and every moment of it. Cooking is no more a chore, it is my passion. I have come a long way from a girl who would hesitate to boil the water to a woman who knows the joy of culinary adventure.
Thank you… that’s all I can say at this moment to each and every readers of Spice Corner. Thanks to my dear blogger buddies; you are my source of inspiration. Thanks to all those anonymous and ghost readers who left their trail in Spice Corner. And a special thanks to my hubby dear for his patience, guidance, encouragement and everything.
So my 100th post is dedicated to all you lovely bloggers out there… These are the recipes I tried from my fellow bloggers and have become my family favorites. Let the celebration begin...
