Walking through the memory lane - WTML for August with a giveway

Hi guys, I am very happy and excited to announce the first event I am hosting at my blog space. Its none other than Gayathri's "Walking through the memory lane" event (WTML). And  whats more the event comes with a giveway too... Most of you may be familiar with Gayathri, a versatile blogger of Gayathri's Cook Spot. Most of her recipes comes with a step by step tutorial that is helpful to one and all. An amazing blogger, Gayathri has recently started her own eggless baking venture in Madurai. To know more about her baking venture, do click here.




About the WTML event. There may be some dishes that holds a special value in our heart. Because it is either prepared by some one special or its our comforting food that we fall back to most of the times. Or it may be some dish that we had in our childhood prepared by our mom, grand moms, aunts or others. Or it may be some dish that you learned at your in laws. Walking through the memory lane event tries to capture those wonderful memories. Any dish with a special short story/memory attached to it.

When I started blogging, initially in most of my posts, I used to mention the wonderful memories I had at Hyderabad which was my home for nearly 5 years. The recipes I learned from my room mates and colleagues and the times spent there with friends and then with hubby is really special to me. One day I came upon Gayathri's WTML event and I was hooked by the amazing theme. Quickly I linked all my entries relating to my wonderful memories be it in Kerala where I grew up or Hyderabad where I worked. I now try to send atleast one recipe every month o the event. After participating in the event once or twice, the idea of guest hosting the event came to my mind. Being a new blogger, very hesitatingly I mailed Gayathri and immediately she mailed me her assent and providing me the opportunity to host the event in August !! Thank you so much Gayathri for giving me this wonderful opportunity to host your event. 

Do you know the best part of the event? It comes with a giveway. This time the participants stand a chance to win a cookery book by Tarla Dalal called Mithai. The front cover itself looks wonderful, isnt it?
