Top 10 Pictures

Top 10 Pictures

I’ve been tagged again. How fun! My wonderful foodie friend Vi from Flowers In The Kitchen tagged me. Thank you, VI! This is a new tag started by Anna at Anna’s Kitchen Table. Here’s a quote from Anna:

“Right guys, listen up….I’m starting a tag. It’s called ‘Top 10 food pics’. Here are mine, all my favourites. I’m tagging 6 people to do their own ‘top 10′. Then if those 6 people could each choose 5 people of their own to tag we’ll get to see some really good food pics! Almost like our very own food pic chain…”

Oh, that’s a great chance to direct my readers to some of my favorite recipes in case they have missed them:)) So, here they come, My Top 10 Pics. Click on the picture to see the recipe. Scroll all the way down to see who I am tagging for their best shots! Enjoy!

And The Winner Is…

And The Winner Is...


The contest is over. Looks like my daughter generated more interest than ice cream:)) Thank you for your nice words about her! Hmm, maybe it’s my fault – I shouldn’t have posted her picture:) She receives enough compliments from people wherever we go as it is:) When I told her that people who read my blog say you are cute and that nobody says I am cute:)), she replied, “I am so lucky! Maybe you should send an email to everybody and say you are cute too!”::)) And this comes from a girl who is only (almost) 5 years old. Looks like I am in big trouble:) Saswati, the name Meltem in Turkish means breeze – ocean or sea breeze.

Anyway, back to the contest. I enjoyed reading your responses although I was expecting more would participate. But thank you to all of you who took the time to answer. I thought it was a great exercise for everybody and fun too. But since there are only 4 gifts to give away, I had to pick the answers I liked the most – Honestly, there weren’t too many answers to choose from which made my decision easier:)

So, without much ado, I am announcing the 4 lucky winners:

ICE CREAM WINNERS:

- Elle at Elle’s New England Kitchen – everything you wrote is so true about Azerbaijani cuisine. And yes, since we have 4 seasons, we do take advantage of what’s available in season. We like things fresh. We usually don’t store anything in a freezer except meat and that is only if there is too much of it and it doesn’t fit in a fridge:)

- Mr. Moo at Dulcimoo- Who simply impressed me by his “discovery” of Azerbaijan from reading my posts. I wish I could write WOW in Cantonese:)) because that’s what I think about your answer. What an intelligent person you are!

- Amy at Familia Bencomo - Whose genuine answer just won her two adorable kids a box full of ice cream!

A WINNER OF AZERBAIJAN INTERNATIONAL MAGAZINE:

- Diva at The Sugar Bar -Whose answer left me speechless – literally. It read like a beautiful story. Diva, you are such a talented writer! Those of you who haven’t visited Diva’s blog, please do so and you will know what I am talking about. She is only 20 and she is writing a novel!

Thank you for being such loyal readers of my blog. It makes me happy and inspires me to do more for you!

Enjoy your gifts! They are well deserved!
