2006 in Photographs
When I look at all these pictures, my one thought is "What a year!"
Hope you all had a fantastic start to 2007!
I have so many new ideas that I would like to realize on the blog. This post will serve the purpose of sharing these ideas with you and inform you of the fun things you can expect here at WFLH.
Of course I would love and really appreciate your feedback and comments. So let me know what you think.
The event I started in the summer of 2006 will be back in January 2007 again. The Monthly Mingle is a monthly event with fun and interesting themes. It is a chance for us to get together and mingle with each other, telling stories and presenting a few great dishes. I will be announcing the theme for the kickoff to 2007 next week, so look out for that. In the meantime browse through the past mingles and see what fun we all had.
Blogger Postcards Around The World
The BPW was a spontaneous event I called into life to allow all of us to get a little closer to each other. I never would have dreamed at the huge success that it was. I know I promised another one towards the end of the last year, but due to a huge workload I had, I was unable to do it. Boy, it involved a massive amount of administration and coordinating. I too learnt plenty in this department LOL! The next round of Blogger Postcards Around The World will also be announced this month, with a little twist. Keep your eyes peeled for the registration start. Just for the record - No, I am not accepting any addresses prior to the registration date announcement.
This regular session of Cooking School was something I really enjoyed. First, it got me cooking some well known dishes we here at the Wolff household love. Second, when I realized that sharing these basic yet popular recipes with you encouraged many to try them out, I had a kind of satisfied feeling. In my eyes it was the perfect interactive session and I hope to bring many more interesting recipes for Cooking School 2007.
This is one of my new sessions on WFLH in 2007. Just like the Cooking School goes for basic "western" recipes, I plan to cook up basic Indian recipes in this session. One of the main reasons I decided to start this session was to actually push me into cooking more Indian food at home - LOL! Ever since I got involved in the Blog world I have met many fellow Indians and got to know a little more about them through their blogs and food. It all inspired me to cook my own food more at home instead of relying on my favorite Indian restaurant. I also hope that there will be an additional side effect with this session. I hope that many of my non-Indian readers will feel encouraged to try out some of the great recipes Indian cuisine offers.
The name came to me after I watched the latest Bond flick (how original). My name is M. and my mission is to finally pry open a few of my dusty baking books, pick out a recipe and in dangerous combat, under acute attack from mysterious ingredients, to actually bake.
OK enough of that. But I hope you get the picture of what this session is all about. After I was inspired by a few of my favorite bloggers, I kind of got into a baking frenzy last year. As the cakes, muffins and brownies actually turned out well I thought I need to do this more often. It is even fun! Can you believe that? I couldn't! Well that is what I will be sharing with you in this new session - my results from my baking escapades in the kitchen. As a matter of fact the first session is planned for this month - I'll be cashing in on a challenge from a certain blogger. Hope you'll join me!
Get The Picture
I needed a way to thank all my readers for their loyalty, friendship, comments, motivation and inspiration so I decided to do it in a special way. Every so often I will offer one of my pictures for grabs on the blog. Two (or three or four) lucky bloggers will then get a chance to win that particular picture. I will develop the picture for them and send it to them. I am a little hesitant with this one as I am not too sure if my pictures is a nice way to say "Thank You!" But I really wanted it to be something personal from me and not just a box of chocolates. I will give it a try and see how it goes. The first session of Get The Picture is planned for in February.
That pretty much wraps up my ideas for the year ahead.
For my other blog, The Daily Tiffin, I received some great information this week. The Daily Tiffin has been nominated for Best Blog for Family and Kids over at Well Fed. A fantastic surprise. The Daily Tiffin is a wonderful team blog with a few gorgeous ladies on the team who write up fun, informative and interesting posts focussing on family and kids. We just need one last favor and that is your vote. If you are interested in voting you can find all the details here. I also have many ideas planned for the Daily Tiffin but those will be posted on the DT a little later.
I truly am looking forward to this shiny new year and hope you will accompany me through the Blogesphere.
