One Year Blog Anniversary – Eat Pray Love Style!

Eat Pray Love is celebrating an anniversary!! 🎊🎊

It’s our one year blog anniversary and we are super-excited to share with you our journey!😇🙏🏻

Exactly a year ago, I started my blog on 10th October,2016  and pressed the publish button. 💌 I remember during my childhood I used to help my mother in the kitchen and would note down all the recipes.

Since then it became a ritual to maintain my recipe collections and now it is a cook book. But as time flew (read as married),I started to spend more time in kitchen and undying penchant to try new recipes.

So I decided to make one of my best cake recipe Double Layered Chocolate Truffle Cake. (http://wp.me/p8b7Mq-3J)

and celebrate my blog anniversary which is super-hit among my family and friends circle.

This “little blog” has grown into so much more than I could have ever imagined over the past year.

I just wanted to thank you each and everyone for inspiring,motivating, stopping by my blog and appreciating.

Eternally grateful.😇
