I am back...

Best Blogger Tips
Hi Friends,
  I am back after my long hibernation. Actually there are a lot of things I would like to share but I do not know where to start. Following my husband for the good of his career, we have moved to Dallas, Texas. First I was busy packing during the first few weeks of June for our move to Dallas, then went on a vacation to India and reached Dallas during the end of August.

  As many of you know I’ve been living in Seattle for almost ten years. When others would complain about Seattle, I was the one to persuade its virtues. 
Moving away from Seattle, a city which I loved the most was the most difficult part. I know that you can make any city work for you and I hope Dallas will work for us.
  We rented out an apartment and my daughter is slowly adjusting in her new school. I should have stared bogging soon after but I don't know what has kept me from posting so long... I guess I just needed a break from the digital world. Well, all of that changes today: I'm back and glad to reconnect with many of you!

PS: I would be posting a recipe in a day or two but before that I would like to share with you that my entry “ Neer Mor'’ to the cookbook contest at Foodista has been selected and the book is published and up for sale at Amazon . Foodista  announced the cookbook contest to bloggers in December 2009, inviting them to submit their favorite recipes, blog posts, and photos for possible inclusion in the cookbook. Over 1,500 submissions and less than a year later, the winners were announced at the International Food Blogger Conference in Seattle on August 27, 2010. The result is a mouthwatering collection of 100 “best of the best” recipes reflecting a wide variety of cultures, tastes, and interests from over 20 countries. Thank you all for your support.
