Molly Wizenberg author and a food blogger said

‘I hate the notion of a secret recipe. Recipes are by nature derivative and meant to be shared – that is how they improve, are changed, how new ideas are formed.
To stop a recipe in it’s tracks, to label it “secret” just seems mean.”

I would like to keep sharing some photos, comments from family and friends who have followed, improvised, tested and tasted some of the recipes on CWS!!!

Please keep photos and ideas  coming as I would love your feedback!!

‘Yummy!!  What a recipe!!
Tastes Great – combination of cooked aloo and uncooked grated raw beetroot it unique.
You have a way to state the recipes in such a simple manner – even beginners like me can make them ‘

Vishaka Rajaram from the US says………………

I adapted your recipes for nombu adai today.
The instructions were really clear and made it so simple- I had to substitute ingredients because I didn’t have some & was nervous about that, but it was delicious.
Thank you for the timely post!
