A giveaway as my blog turns four

Yesterday(June 30), my blog turned four. It is not everyday that you get an opportunity to show people how thankful you are for the comments that they leave and the encouragement that they give. So, when CSN stores contacted me and asked me if I would like to host a giveaway to celebrate my blog's birthday, I jumped at the opportunity.

CSN Stores has over 200 online stores where you can find everything from cookware to cribs to specific needs such as dining room sets and toddler beds.

So, what is it that you win by participating in this giveaway? You get a $60 gift certificate that you can use at any of the CSN stores online, including cookware.com which has products that any food blogger would love to have.

All that you have to do to take part in the giveaway is:
Leave a comment on this post with your email id.
Tell me one thing that you like about this blog and
one thing that you'd like to see changed.
That's it.....simple, isn't it???
So, go ahead....leave me a comment and win that $60 gift certificate.The giveaway is open until July 12th. One lucky winner will be chosen by a random draw. Since CSN only ships to the US & Canada, the giveaway is restricted to these two countries.

Jayshree, you and me both share the same blog title. I want to participate in this Giveaway. What I like in your blog most is your snippet posts (he he weird taste, liking non food posts in a food blog). If you have Label set up it is easy for new bloggers like me to go through your previous posts. Happy hosting. My email id feastinthekitchen@gmail.com

Wow! Four yrs of continued blogging is a gr8 achievement dear. Wish u all the very best for successful future.

There r couple of blogs with same name but still you have ur own style of maintaining your blog, which i like a lot dear.

You should continue with step by step pictorial instruction for your recipes( i found it very attractive and easy to follow) and label set up is very important for easy access of recipes index.

That is a huge milestone, especially in the blogging world. And what a great giveaway to commemorate!
I love the recipes. It's not a big deal but my old eyes like a solid background behind the text better than a patterned one!

Wow Jayshree, 4 years, amazing !!! this is my first time here as well. Beautiful blog and wonderful collection of recipes !!!

I would surely love to be in the giveaway as well, priya.mitharwal@gmail.com

For the methi mangodi (dumplings), you don't have to spread it into a thin layer, it is just drying it with spoonful of the batter , they are solids and not hollow dumplings. Hope that is clear :)

Pixie said...

Congrats on 4 years! What a milestone! Love all the neat interesting recipes, but I agree with a few other folks...infuse a bit more of your wonderful personality into your blog design!

RV said...

Congratulations dear!!! What I like about your blog is it is very simple and elegant. I love the idea of having step by step recipes too. One thing I would like to see in your blog is a Recipe Index probably you can have a menu on top/or on the side to list the index and highlights in your blog. Happy Blogging and Happy Eating...

Congrads Jayashree! Love your blog, as you keep sharing restaurant reviews, and some rare recipes like wheat halwa, manga inji oorukaai etc.

I tried ur mangaa inji oorukaai and liked it a lot too!

as RV said, you could put some recipe index and archive list to browse old recipes.
