It felt real good that people like my posts. Thanks to all my blog visitors. o I thought of celebrating this event with all of you. There were many ideas in mind, but I stuck to this one. Myself being a non-vegetarian I thought of hosting an event to celebrate these 4000 hits of my blog.

My blog reaching 4000, you can say that’s just a mere alibi to host this event. All I wanted was to share more and more with those people whom I have never but they share the same love for cooking like me.
