Hello genius! I have a humble gift for you: I’m passing on an award to you. I always enjoy browsing through your creative blog. And thanks for making my browsing time a joyful one. Come check it out: http://myselfnusrat.wordpress.com/2013/11/16/the-marchant-of-happiness/
Hi Nursrat and thank you for passing the award. Its always great to see your comments on our blog. You have a wonderful blog too Nusrat and its so warm and personal. Your pictures are excellent too. I have to tell you that I saw this picture of a person who is picking up some rosmarin. I was able to feel the smell of the rosmarin when i looked at the picture.It was so inspiring that i just wanted to get a bunch of it and start making someting out of it. My first thoughts where a lamb steak and rosmarin ice cream. Have a great day Oli 🙂
Wow lots of experience in the kitchen eh? I am a pastry chef by school but I love the whole culinary field. Would love to cook with you one day, lol! 😛
