Happy Mother's Day..

Here's wishing all you mothers out there a very Happy Mother's Day !! I didn't know what to post on this special day, but nevertheless couldn't but stop and write something. Back in India, I don't remember wishing my mom on this day, but after being away from India and so far away from parents, have started to appreciate this day. And yes, more so after I turned mom too :). It feels really good to dedicate just one day to all the mothers who make this world just extra pecial!!
A special wish for my mom who has always put everyone else in the family before her, happy and content with whatever little she ever had, with a whole lot of patience and mind-blowing endurance to everything. I always think of her and think I'm not even half as good. So, to you Aayi, ' Wish you a very happy Mother's Day', and I couldn't have had a better mom than you :)...

Well, I really didn't make anything sweet today, but did try this wonderful cake from Asha's blog a couple of days back. Her MW Orange Streusal Cake was just awesome. Yes, its made in the microwave, and the entire time you will spend on making this less than half an hour. Now, for something to taste this good, that being a cake, and the time it takes to get done, can you ask for anything better ?? The cake was just moist, with the distinct orange flavour( inspite of me skipping the orange essence, since I didn't have it), and the perfect streusel part to compliment it..

Check out her recipe at AromaHope here..Thanx so much Asha, for this lovely recipe, we just loved it.

Also, few days back, I got the 'Yummy Blog Award' from Meera, my dear friend of EnjoyIndianFood. Thank-you so much Meera for thinking of my blog for this one. I really am inspired by your variety of posts and amazed by each and every one of them.

Going by the rules, I have to list 4 of my favourites desserts which I have ever tasted/prepared. So here they are..

1. Mango Cake
2. Dharwad Pedha
3. Peach & Cranberry Spice Cake
4. Cadbury- Dairy Milk Chocolate

Now, its time to pass it on to 4 other bloggers. This is really really tough coz each and every blog out here is yummy and excellent in its own special way. Although these people have already got this award, I would still like to mention their names : Meera, Purnima, Asha, Shilpa and many more blogs, whom I am truly inspired by and look forward to each and every post of theirs. So I'd like to pass this on to all the wonderful bloggers out there who put in that extra special in all their posts.
