Its time to celebrate with Eggless Chocolate Almond Cookies

Yes its my Dear Bloggy's Birthday :)

Haiya..Finally the day has come to celebrate....
When i started this blog i was all passionate and everything..but then i wasn't regular..I should say last year i posted just 4 posts 3 recipes and my Welcome Post.

Only this year that too after March i was kinda regular...
I started this blog for my passion for cooking so named it "COOKING WITH LOVE AND FOR LOVE " but then my love for makeup, skincare etc even wanted some i renamed my blog in such a way it represents both...So here it is " My Cyber Kitchen and Makeup Madness "

This one year i have learned so many things but first and foremost be Regular and Patient to reap the result :)

Just like every other blogger i want my blog to be famous but for that i need to be dedicated and regular...which iam trying to achieve ...

I would really like to take this opportunity to thank my hubby a lot...Seriously without his encouragement and help..I would have never continued posting at all..seriously..coming back from work everyday at 9:00 PM and then cooking dinner is a big task for me(Lazy Lazy) ....I try to do most of my relaxed cooking/baking on Saturdays/Sundays...

Also I recived The Versatile Blogger Award from dear Ikky and Rids too :)
Thanks to all my fellow bloggers for the encouragement ,who never miss to leave a lovely comment in my blog everytime a new post appears..That gives so much motivation for the next post :)

So i have decided not to find reasons to be lazy and be regular and make my blog Famous someday :P Also take better Photos.. Soon :D

So here is my treat for the anniversary :)

I took the recipe from dear priti 's Blog :)


All Purpose Flour - 1 1/2 Cup
Powder Sugar - 3/4 Cup
Cocoa Powder - 3 tbsp
Butter - 1/4 Cup [at room temperature]
