Happy 1st Anniversary to my Blog !


Hurray !! Annapurna has turned 1 today.  It was this day , one year ago ( i remember it was Gudi Padwa, an auspicious day in Hindu Calendar and a New Year day to us Maharashtrians ) when i started my journey as a blogger. A Microbiologist by profession , had never thought i will blog some day. No doubt cooking is, and was my passion since childhood and i had grown up seeing my mom (Mrs. Mangala Pagar) cook variety of authentic dishes . She remains to be my true inspiration in cooking.

Before summarizing my beautiful journey of 1 year in blogging, i would like to thank my buddies Gulshan , Seema and Kajal whom i owe my blog. I would not have been here today, writing this post if these girlies would not have noticed my potential and motivated me to step out of my comfort zone and pen my recipes and cooking experiences. Really blessed to have such kind hearts around me :)

1 year back , my journey began with very little confidence, a more of fear and hesitation. But with all your support and  motivation , i took baby steps and tried to overcome my fear and today i feel that blogging has become a part of my life. I am enjoying it thoroughly . As a blogger , i not only have a platform to share with you my experiences , but i also get to learn and experiment many new dishes and try different cuisines . It is not only the recipe i share here, but also i am able to pen the priceless memories associated  with that particular dish. In this one year, i feel i have overcome my fear of baking and now i enjoy baking breads and cakes for my Son.

I also owe my blog to all my wonderful readers , to my fellow bloggers and to my friends for having faith in me, for continuously inspiring me, for reading my long posts , for appreciating my work through likes , motivating me by trying my recipes and giving me valuable feedbacks through comments. I am also blessed with a very supportive and encouraging family, who gave me the liberty to experiment my trial recipes on them and who always stood behind me as strong pillars . There are many more of you , whom i am not be able to mention here  in this small post, who have helped me to be where i am today . My heartfelt thanks to all of you !

Today Annapurna records , 162 recipes posts and 94131 page views to its blog with all your love and support.  Hoping to see all of you and many more to be in my journey ahead :)
