Sunshine Award


Yet another feather added to our blogging cap! 🙂 We were just awarded the Sunshine Award by our lovely blogger friend, Apsara from Eating Well Diary. You gotta love her blog- full of healthy, wholesome, vegetarian and interesting recipes. Our favorite recipe from her blog, which we are yet to try, is the Eggless and Sugarless Whole Wheat Apricot Cupcakes. Thank you Apsara for giving this award to us. You would agree when we say that it is always so good to be recognized by the blogging community. We have made so many friends since we started and we are absolutely loving the love! 🙂

So, the rules are pretty easy for this one. If you do accept the award then:

  • Include the Sunshine Award icon in your post and/or on your blog;
  • Add the link of the award presenter’s blog who awarded you;
  • Answer the  questions the award presenter has set for you;
  • Present the  award  to the blogs that you enjoy (preferably those who haven’t already received this award);
  • Notify the awardees by leaving a comment on their blog  and link their blogs on your post; and
  • Create 10 questions for your awardees to answer.

So here are answers to Apsara’s questions:

1. Why did you start blogging?
Nikhil’s love for cooking and eating and my love for baking got us blogging. Also, since I wasn’t working for the first time in 6 years I had the time to experiment, travel and share our food stories so here is where we landed!

2. Sweet or Savory?
Aditi: As sweet as sweet can be 🙂

Nikhil: Savory

3. If you were to go on any reality TV programme, what would it be and why?
Aditi: Say Yes to the Dress on TLC. Don’t judge me please. I know I have already said yes to my dress a couple years back but I love weddings and everything associated with them! 🙂

Nikhil: Chopped on Food Network.

4. What was the last thing you Googled? 
Aditi: A synonym for “out of the box” :p

Nikhil: Places to eat in Asheville. That’s going to be one of our stops on our next road trip.

5. Night In or Night Out?
Aditi: In summers, night out. In winters, night in watching a movie and having some popcorn!

Nikhil: After what Aditi said, I don’t have much of a choice. But well, I agree with her.

6. What has been your favourite blog post to write?

Trifle with a Twist


7. What’s the one thing you never leave home without?
Aditi: My phone.

Nikhil: Car keys.

8. Where would you most like to travel to?
Aditi: Currently, anywhere warm 🙂

Nikhil: Spain’s countryside

9. If you could have any super power, what would it be?
Aditi: Don’t need a specific superpower. A magic wand would be good though 🙂

Nikhil: Telekinesis

10. What can we expect to find from your blog in the future?

A makeover, a variety of (healthier) recipes from our kitchen, healthier versions of desserts and fun stories from our travels.

We had so much fun answering these questions, hope you have as much fun reading them!
