  3. I appreciate your blog objective at the first visit. I would go through it as often as possible. And comment in more detail. Keep it up. It is useful for common people.
    Best Wishes,

    1. Mr.Remigius,I am thankful for your observations.The phrase "common man" has jolted me to rethink about recipes.

    2. Why the jolt? What is wrong with common man? Do you write only for the bloggers? I find Internet is accessed even by school children...

  4. Dear Mr.Remigius,while posting recipes,the various categories of people are not kept in mind.The persons can choose any recipe according to their liking,health conditions etc.I was jolted that the recipes of low cost and easy cook ought to be posted so that the same may be useful to persons of limited means.
