Premio Dardos Award Nomination- yay!

Four months into the blogging world and an award nomination already! Yes, I'm truly honored as I'm just a beginner and have to learn a lot but all thanks to this lovely fellow blogger Roy who blogs by the name of "Piece of Cerebrum" for nominating me. She not just shares about the traditional Bengali Indian recipes but gives us the insight into her culture and heritage too, through her writing. I love the caption of her blog "a piece of 'mind' in writing" :)
Do check out her interesting blog here
My heartfelt gratitude to her once again for nominating me for this award! :)

So, what is it all about? 
Upon being nominated, the rules that we have to follow are:

☆Thank the giver and link their blog to your post.
☆Pass the award on to other bloggers of your choice and let them know that they have been nominated.
-This is for the ones who didn’t understand the meaning of this award(which includes me)
The Premio Dardos {means Prize Darts in Spanish} and it exists to acknowledge the values that every blogger shows in their effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values every day. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.
☆I will add a new edge! I would love to know you fellow blogger/foodie & so I request you to say 3 things about you. Keep it fun! It needn’t be food related :) :)
If you don’t own a blog then you could make a Facebook or Twitter post too.
Don't forget to drop a link below for all of us to read. :)
Since I'm still new at blogging and have begun to meet some great and successful bloggers who are really nice people as well therefore, I'd be able to nominate just a couple of fellow bloggers at the moment. They are truly deserving of this award also. So, here are my nominations. Do check out their work, people. You'd really love the time and effort they put in to bringing all those wonderful posts to us and that also quite regularly. Kudos to them!
I'd like to nominate Byron Thomas of "Pretty Practical Pantry" 1st. I love his work and he has not only been sharing some great recipes with all of his readers but he's truly a gem of a person also and has been always supportive to all of his fellow bloggers including me :) Do check out his pretty and mouthwatering healthy, vegetarian recipes here. While you're at his blog, don't forget to check out his "Crafts & Decor" section as well where he has shared that how he transforms an old furniture piece into a totally new one and how he made a beautiful blanket in 4 months so, be prepared to get highly impressed! :) You'd fall in love with his Christmas decorations as well! :)
My 2nd nomination will be a South African sister who now resides in Dubai. She is neither a trained chef nor does she hold any certificate in culinary arts yet, she'd amaze you with her cooking skills, creativity and photography that shall tempt you to get your hand at trying her lovely recipes. Now imagine how talented she would be who baked a cake successfully at the age of 8, you gotta be kidding me! But not at all respected ladies and gentleman. Do check out for yourself here :)
My 3rd nomination is of a very talented cooking expert who not only blogs but conducts cooking classes as well as does catering. Wow! Manal's recipes are close to my heart because she shares Middle Eastern recipes on her blog that really takes me back to the time when I was growing up in the K.S.A and easily got all of those delicacies and enjoyed eating them but now, thanks to her that I can prepare them at home. Do visit her blog here to get some taste of the Middle Eastern cuisine :) 
My 4th and final  nomination is of a very talented blogger who happens to be my neighbor as well :) Yes, an Indian dental surgeon who has a penchant for healthy vegetarian cooking and has a very interesting blog name " Veggie bus on a simple route" She shares delicious, healthy and lovely looking recipes on her blog. Here, I'd like to take the liberty of mentioning that also that she sure is a woman of multiple talents as she's a Bharatnatym trained dancer as well. I'm impressed! Visit her lovely blog here :) 
These are my nominations, folks :) I hope to connect with more bloggers in future and hope to make some more friends in this process. I feel all of the bloggers who take out time to share about their passion, talent and the part of their lives truly deserves to be appreciated. Hats off to all the talented people out there! 
Now, as the last part of the rules state that I have to share three things about myself so, I would say that I am at the loss of words when it comes to talking about myself :) But I can say that I love to learn new things everyday. I love to travel and to connect with like minded people. I love to know about different cultures and believe in this mantra that "Live and let live" :)
On this note, I'd like to thank once again for this nomination and to all of my respected nominees, I really appreciate your work! My words couldn't do justice to your talents and that includes yours too, Roy! :)
Look forward to reading all of the acceptance posts so, don't forget to link me up :)
Enjoy and keep doing the best that you all are doing already! :)
