A kitchen without knife – no way. We all very well know how important knives are for our day to today cooking. A good sharp knife plays a significant role in the kitchen. I am a kitchen gadget fanatic and when I got an opportunity to try and review the “Complete six-piece precision knife series set” from Edge of Belgravia I was super excited and immediately said yes. When I saw the knives that came all the way from the UK, I was utterly mesmerized. I should call these as black beauties.
I am elated and excited to share this fantastic news with you all today. We at IMC, released the Millets Ebook today! This is my second ebook…. Yayyyy!! What a great way to start the month! This idea of posting millet recipes seeded on Mother’s day 2015. We, the members of IMC brainstormed and came up with lots of recipes, and that’s when we decided to compile all those recipes into an e-book. The millet recipe contest sure did spice it up.
I have mentioned about my love for kitchen gadgets on this blog many times, and I am repeating the same now :-). Peeling and chopping vegetables are one among the most common task in the culinary world. Some vegetables are easy to handle, but some are not. Even with easy veggies, we need to be careful while chopping and peeling. Then imagine the veggies like raw banana which is sticky and ridge gourd which has a rough skin. We need to be extra careful with those veggies. I firmly believe that safety should be the priority in the kitchen. With that said I always look for kitchen gadgets that ensure safety and at the same time that saves time in the prep work.
Here is the much-awaited roundup post of the kid’s delight event – Cakes and Cookies. I hosted the event during the holiday season. I know it’s the perfect time for cakes and cookies but at the same time, it is the time for traveling and family visits. Irrespective of that, I received 29 lip smacking yummylicious recipes. Thanks to each and everyone for making this event a great success and without any further ado here is the recipe roundup.
We celebrated Vaandu’s 8th birthday today!!! You might have guessed the theme from the title, yes, it is the Angry birds. :-) E.I.G.H.T years went in a blink. It seems like only yesterday I was holding him in my arms and I was changing his diapers and watching his first steps, first babblings etc. But time just flies and I am missing those years for sure. No matter how old he gets, he will be always our little Vaandu and Happy happy Birthday to my dear Vaandu.
Like cooking, I inherited gardening interest from my mother. I am really fortunate to have lived/living in houses with a back yard (one had a front yard too) that fostered my interest in gardening. Due to my dad’s work nature, we shifted places often but once I entered middle school we stay put in the house in Periyakulam.
One more day and will be bidding goodbye to 2016. Like 2015, 2016 went in a flick too. Before welcoming 2017, following the tradition of 2015 and 2016, here is my retrospective post. Err precisely, a small recap of what happened in VVK in 2016. Before that, I would like to thank all the readers for all your support and encouragement and especially for trying my recipes and taking the time to click and send me the picture. It means a lot to me and it’s a boosting factor for sure.

Being a food blogger, I admire and appreciate all the food bloggers out there. Food blogging is a pretty involved hobby and it requires a lot of time.
