I'm The Star - My First Event





Believe me when i say i have been waiting for the Last day of Feb :D..I wanted to announce this on the last day & have been tempted to so mid-way..Feb is indeed the month of 'Love'...With the Valentine Day fever, i am sure,we have seen the prettiest heart shaped balloons, heart shaped chocolate boxes, bright shining red gift packs, decorations..right :)



How can the blogging..esp the food bloggers be left behind.. Lovely heart shaped bakes, chocolates and the most important component 'Cooking with LOVE for your loved ones :)'. All you guys have done such a great job, by whipping up very innovative, creative dishes, just to see the lovely smile of your loved ones..& to make them feel special and loved!


So, this time, its going to be ' ALL about U'...When i saw the entries in various events, the first thing that came to my mind was 'Do you do something only for u??' Blame it on the Hindi sitcoms, i watch, i suddenly potrayed all of us as the Martyr kind of people... one who does everything for everyone but self...then the reality dawns.. Nah! we don't cook exclusively for ourselves, coz we are lazy..its so much easier to order right? I rather watch a movie & enjoy that with a bowl of maggi..or its a day off kitchen if people don't want dinner or lunch :D..


This event is all about U & only U :..I know, this means going to the Kitchen again..but then think, i mean for a minute...Its going to be your FAV foood :)..


My rambles stop.. Here are the rules :)


The Event run all March from the 1st ~31st '2012
1. Send in any dish, which is your favorite...something you cooked, bcoz you love it ..could be a starter, desert, rice..anything absolutely anything!
2. I hate to do this but then Only Vegetarian favorites..egg in baking is cool! 
3. Go ahead & share with us why you love it..most recipes have a story to it.. or it could remind you of something or maybe you just love it..no particular reason..
4. Mainly new entries..its the time to make it again & enjoy it & post it!! :)..is it a double entry to your blog..hmmm..does it matter ;)..you enjoyed it that's what matters :D
5. Usage of the logo is Mandatory!! Not only it spreads the work, i think its kinda cute..dont u agree?
6. Go ahead & send any number of entries.. The more happy moments..the more smiles :)..
7. Kindly link back to the Announcement page!
8. Make sure you leave a comment behind..i don't want to miss the chance of reading your post!
9. Non- bloggers to can send in your entries by mailing me!


Please Link your entries using the Linky tool attached to this post by 31st March 2012. If you have trouble linking, do let me know and I will do the needful!

Non bloggers - Email me your entry and I shall post the recipe and link it up here. You can mail me at rasyasrinath(at)gmail(dot)com

We have become a nice virtual group now.. so make sure you go ahead & read others posts and get to know them better :).. who knows, someone's fav might just be the food, you love too.. it might be ''THE'' recipe you have been hunting for...or might be the dish you tasted & loved but just can't remember what it was named ;)



Can't wait to see & read all about your fav food & your stories my blogger and non blogger friends!!

  13. Hi Rasi!

    Linked my Green Gram Coconut curry for this event. Well, it is one of my favourite dishes but mainly because after a long lousy week I finally managed to cook something for myself :) My hubby has lunch from his office canteen so cooking anything for lunch doesn't really happen and the very 'lazy' moi end up having rice, curds and pickle! Height of laziness right :D

    Thanks to your post I thought I will make something to have a lovely lunch. And tada! Hope you like the recipe. Happy hosting :)

    Do contribute your fab recipes to my event too!
