Tried and Tasted : Sailu's Food

Hi Friends, I am back after a long time with another great event.

There are many thousands of food blogs in this blogosphere. Each and every blog is unique in its own kind. The recipes in the blogs are new, some of them old, some of them are presented in a tongue tickling style, some of the have drooling photographs of food, some traditional, some from the loving mother, many national and international recipes and lastly, many of them are bookmarked recipes.

Many a times it happens that I start somewhere searching for a recipe or maybe going through someones new post. And from there keep continuing jumping from  one blog to another fully immersed in the recipes, beautiful photographs and so on. And after the end of about 1 hour I would have bookmarked 100s of recipes. And not only are these recipes bookmarked but several times also Tried and Tasted.

And many a times it happens that we start liking recipes of some particular blog, for many reasons. Firstly because we Tried a recipe from this blog and for the first time itself we would received a great round of applause from our family members. Sometimes because we like their way of instructions, sometimes because of their tongue tickling photos and so on. So then we start frequenting this blog, try out many recipes from this particular blog.

And so this is the whole idea behind this months event. This event "Tried & Tasted" was started by dear Zlamushka of SpicyKitchen. To appreciate our fellow blogger for their hard work. And how can we honour them for their work? Best way is to try their recipes and letting them know that their recipe had been of great success to us by showcasing their recipe in our blog and by mentioning a gratitude towards their work.

Each month recipes from one particular blog is "Tried and Tasted". So this month's honoured blog is Sailu's Food by Sailu. The blog with its beautiful and mesmerising photograph is a true virtual treat to our eyes. So we will take this opportunity this month to show our gratitude towards her work.

The logo for this event was designed by Ksenia who blogs at Tales of a Spoon.
