    Best New Indiblog...Me?? ... Yes ME!!!

    As I eagerly waited for the results to be announced, I secrectly hoped that it would be me. Then a week later, last night, just out of sheer boredom, I decided to check my blog stats. There seemed to be a sudden hike of visitors coming from a particular website. So I hopped on to to the site at question, there it was, staring me right in the face. It happened... I had won!!!

    Yes, friends, readers and blogger mates, I have been voted the "Best New Indi-blog of the Year"!! And as I get into my Oscar Award mode, and thank everyone involved, I want to give a big shout-out at my wonderful hubby who has been so supportive and an eager guinea pig in tasting all my crazy creations. And to all of you out there who read and comment on my posts, this would'nt have been possible without all the love and appreciation I get from you all everyday. So here's to a great new year with lots of delicious mouth-watering and spicy delights to come!! Thank you!!
