  1. Hey Aarthi,I really appreciate your effort in trying many delicious foods and updating your blog regulary. I like all your recipes so much, it is very detailed and easy to follow. however your recipe description are little monotonous, feels like you have certain templates for introduction for all salads, dressing, payasam, popsicles etc etc..This is just an opinion from me.I have no intention of hurting you in any way.But u are trying different recipes from diffreent cusines and I bet you are so talented to try more different recipes. but try to avoid posting similar recipes twice, add more heartfelt introduction of the dishes which you prepare( for some you really do have a story). when i read similar contents for similar recipes i really lose interest in checking them out.I know you I am rambling like an expert which i am definitely not. i have seen many food blogs out there, and ur recipes are awesome but i dont see the qulitative maintenace in them. you can actually have a proper time table for updating, like 3 recipes on wednesday and 3 on sunday something like that.and more heart and soul for the dish you prepare.dont clumsify your blog.it is absolutley beautiful..please keep up the good work and do some innovative things to take your blog to next level.All the best dear.
