1 Year & 6 Months and Still Counting!!!

1 Year & 6 Months and Still Counting!!! :-)
On 12th July 2010 this blog turned 1 year & 6 months old :-). Thanks to all of you who supported this venture. I was planning to post this on 12th Jan 2010 on the completion of 1 year but was busy with my wedding preparations and was not able to spare time to write, so decided to write when my blog turned 1 year & 6 months.

I had started Anjali’s Kitchen, on 12th Jan 2009 as a place to save our home-made food recipes and also some new trials by me, my Mom and now by my Mother in law :-). I would have never started this if my husband would not have encouraged me that time to go ahead and start my own blog. In the beginning, I had no clue about blogs; I used to try adding new features every day to my blog through lots of exploring. The day I received the first comment on my blog, I was delighted. The motivation has lasted so long due to the amount of love and admiration I have received from you all.

I was overjoyed when I got an invite from Zee Marathi for a popular Marathi cookery show “Aamhi Sare Khavayye”. It is a TV show featuring preparation of various delectable dishes. I was invited by them to show my culinary skills and it was hosted by well-known Marathi actor ‘Prashant Damle’. It was telecast on 7th Dec 2009 on Zee Marathi. It encouraged me even more to add new recipes to this blog. I have posted the videos of the telecast on my blog for making it easier for everyone to try out those recipes.

I always tell people to drop a comment on the posts as comments are the only way I get to know who is reading and what they like here. It may not be possible for me to always post what each and everyone wants, because each day I get so many different requests. But at least I would know what you want to read here. I encourage you to write at least a single line here when you try out any recipe from Anjali’s Kitchen. Tell me what you liked about it or what you did not like. If you have genuinely used this blog, please let me know. Please be polite while commenting. It takes a lot of hard work, time, energy and money, to maintain this blog, so let us make it a homely and nice place.
As said above, I post what I cook. Many a times, when I get a request, I try to find the recipe and prepare it. But it is not always possible. Sometimes I don’t know the recipe, sometimes I cannot prepare it for various reasons. I don’t post anything unless I try it myself.

So to sum it up, Anjali’s Kitchen is a place with the following purposes:
1. Preserve and document food recipes that my family enjoys.
2. Log the experience and preparation of new learning spanning across a variety of cuisines.
3. Connect with like minded food lovers, friends and bloggers.
