The Year That Was....a Quick Recap of 2011

Print Friendly and PDF
As we bid adieu to 2011, let us also welcome the new year with a hope that it would bring more joyful and prosperous year ahead.This is the last post for the year 2011 in this blog.

While chatting with a couple of blogger friends, we came up with an idea of doing a recap post with a common theme. After a lot of discussion we decided on a theme that centered around selecting the best posts of each month.A special thanks to Lubna for the idea and for coming up with those beautiful names and thanks also to my friends Priti and Deepa for their valuable suggestions. Please also check Lubna,Priti and Deepa blogs for their round up of year 2011.

I was under the assumption that doing a recap post would be easy but I was wrong.Although the recap posts look simple, it takes a lot of time to select the best posts. While it was easy selecting the best posts for a few of the months, it was very difficult for some others.However I tried to state various reasons for selecting those specific posts,just have a look.

Joyful January:
Link

Reason:
I started the year 2011 with this sweet post,the first post of the year.

Fabulous February:


Reason:
I was quite confused in picking up the entry for this month and finally ended up choosing this post to include an Italian variety in the recap.


Marvellous March:


Reason: This is the classic breakfast combo of the year.

Awesome April:


Reason: This is the quick and easy recipe of the year and is also perfect to satisfy those sudden chocolate cravings.

Mighty May:


Reason:
Though I have posted many dosa recipes in this year,this Benne Dosa is my favorite dosa recipe of this year.

Juicy June:


Reason: A simple and easy cake which is a good start for a beginner.

Just July:


Reason: A nice twist to the regular Idli and also a good way to use the left over sour idli batter.

Adorable August:


Reason: This is one of my favorite Videshi Khana recipe but ironically I like it when made it in pakka Indian style..I mean the Indo-Chinese way.

Sweet September:


Reason: I was again confused choosing the post in this month and finally picked this Festive recipe as it was prepared for the most important festival of the year.

Overdose October:


Reason: This was a milestone post as it was posted to celebrate my 250th post.

Nostalgic November:


Reason: This is the post which I enjoyed while preparing,clicking,writing and posting it.This is the most enjoyable post of 2011 for me.

Delightful December:

Reason: This post was a surprise hit and continues to receive a good number of hits despite being a recent post.

I wish you all my friends and readers an advance NEW YEAR WISHES.I will be back soon with a sweet delight to celebrate the coming New Year.Till then enjoy your holidays and follow the mantra WORK HARD..PARTY HARDER..!!
