My first Blog Award- "The Liebster blog award "

I am so excited to share with everyone that today morning I have been awarded with the " Liebster blog award " by Manasi S from Indian Delights. This is my first award for the food blog and thanks a lot Manasi for sharing the award with me, you made my day.

When I saw the comments by her on one of the recipes posted by me, I didn't understand what the Liebster award meant for, as I had heard the word "Liebster" for the first time. On quick search I got to know that in German, it means “ dearest or beloved". And that the aim of this award is to offer public recognition to new bloggers for their work. Its a kind of appreciation for their efforts. It's really so motivating , I feel like trying more and more healthy and authentic cuisine for family and my readers.
