First Blog Anniversary


Nithu's Kitchen completes a year today with 300 posts and 221 friends through Google Friend Connect. Thank you friends for your support and encouragement. Hope, you all would continue to support me throughout this journey. My special thanks to my Hubby, Dad, Mom and Sister for their constant encouragement.

To celebrate this great day, I made Eggless Carrot Cake. I know, most of you here are good bakers with a wonderful skill for icing. This is the very first time, I tried my hands to do some designs on a cake :-)) So, please bear with my extremely non-professional icing :-(




On this special day, I would like to share few important happenings of Nithu's kitchen for the period of one year (13th Oct, 2009 - 13th Oct, 2010).

Milestones / Important Posts :
