Your blog is very well accomplished and neat and I would like to congratulate as well for the press coverage you have received so far, wish you more in future.

To start with, I have this book written by Boria Majumdar called “Cooking On The Run”. Boria is a very well known sports journalist and in this book he has covered some crucial cooking tips and easy shortcuts to scrumptious meals. You can read more about the book here.
