Blogging Marathons are always fun and at the same time a bit challenging. These marathons help me to get back to all the recipes that I missed or the cooking techniques that I almost forgot. The April marathon helped me to get back to my baking routine and now this got back to explore different cuisines. Apart from these I did learn a lot a recipes from various countries.
I was so amazed by the other participants who posted buffet for each and every day. Just imagine, its minimum three to four dishes in a buffet and that multiplied by 23 days? Kudos to them and I really appreciate their effort and I need to learn a lot from them too. When I look at their effort mine seems to be simple. I think I took the easy route. But I enjoyed doing this marathon and learnt a lot. I have bookmarked a lot of recipe and will be trying them out soon.
Here is my simple recap…
