Tried and Tasted is the new event started by the lovely Zlamushka at her Spicy Kitchen! This is an event to appreciate other blogs - an opportunity to thank our fellow bloggers for sharing their recipes by re-creating them. Starting the very first edition of T&T, “laboratory rat” as Zlamushka says is our dear friend Cynthia of Tastes Like Home.
Appreciation from people who try your recipe and enjoy is such a pleasure. So I was all excited when I saw this event.
Cynthia is a warm and wonderful person who always has a kind word for every blogger she visits. She is too good in her writings and her pictures are simply awesome. I have been many times in her blogs, simply stunned by her beautiful pictures. Many looked too complicated for the poor me!
Then I saw this yummy looking rice. And I simply couldn't resist myself from asking her for the recipe! I have the print out with me for many days. And I have been looking at it and wondering when I will prepare it. So when I saw this event and Cynthia being the rat, oops lab rat rather, I couldn't stay away from making it.
Infact I tried recreating her picture, I know its no way as near pretty as hers. The taste was as she said. This recipe is sure keeper!
