Greetings for a Beautiful New Year - 2008

Wish You All A Very Happy and Peaceful New Year!!
.

I'm delighted to say that 2007 was a fantastic year for 'As Dear As Salt'!
There is more to blogging than can be explained in words!
The gush of excitement that takes over when you find a recipe you have been looking for, forever,
the meeting of like minds,
the exchange of emails to get that 'exact' taste in a recipe you are looking for,
discussions on nutrition(sometimes carried to extremes....lol ).
All these things make blogging so very exciting. I hope to continue blogging more of my experiments in the kitchen in 2008 and look forward to all of your active participation in my blog! I'm thankful to all my friends and readers for taking time to leave their valuable comments and messages, it means a whole lot to me :) It would not be the same without you :)
.
I was hoping to participate in Nupur's event, but other plans took over :) Anyway, here I'm, ushering in the New Year with all of you, my blogger friends! Not sure if I can list top 10 posts as such, after all each and every post is dear to my heart :) A blogger knows, the amount of time and work involved in publishing a post!
Instead what I will do is list a few random posts that you may like to take a look at.
.
.
Ragda Patties, as a homage to 'A's' mom for the love showered upon some hungry kids :)
.
Pineapple Jam, for it was such a fun post.
.
Matthi Puri, a truly unique recipe.
.
Sweet Potato Paratha, one of the easiest and yummiest parathas one could make without a fuss.
.
Paneer Puri, sheer paneer indulgence :)
.
Vatana Batata Tameta Shaak, the essense of simplicity.

.

Black Eye Peas Burger, a change from the usual.
.
Please check out the blog archive for many more .........

Happy New Year!!

Is that burfi I see in your lead photo? Looks so dense and sweet! Happy New Year, Richa! Glad to have discovered you in 2007; I know I will enjoy many visits to come in 2008.

[P.S. - Yes, I did put the lime (and rosewater) in my rice pudding at the end to prevent the heat from breaking them down. : ) ]
