Happy Birthday Miss Foodies :)

ABOUT

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US 🙂 Hello foodie friends as you must have already noticed that it is today 3rd of May 2014 where we complete an year of good food, experience, Restaurant reviews, gossip, recipes and what not. The journey of an year has been a learning experience and absolutely amazing 🙂

From getting started with our blog as a fun activity and because of our love for food TO  lots and lots of cooking and sharing recipes with you all TO feeling excited seeing number of likes increase, encouraging comments TO getting connected to you all – our foodie friends and food bloggers who are crazy for food just like us TO the unforgettable Miss foodies Bangkok trip 🙂 TO associating with FBAI and very like minded and experienced people from food industry TO Food bloggers meet TO Reviewing Restaurants has made the journey beautiful and left an urge for cooking more sharing more, experiencing more, Reviewing more 😉

Was it all so easy? Hmmm let us put a thought to that 🙂 Before we start to begin let us tell you that we could have actually shared some amazing recipe with you all.. May be a cake saying Happy Birthday 🙂 or something else.. In fact many ideas passed our mind, special cake was also one of them 😉 Lol….. Lets do this, lets do that, lets prepare some awesomeness 🙂 and so on. But nothing really worked out. We wondered why? But may be its now, at this hour of the night 00:48 as per IST on 3rd may 2014 that we have the answer. Pretty tired, may be half asleep, in deep thoughts 🙂 Chatting and typing whatever is coming to our minds and sharing with you all 🙂 May be this is how it was meant to be 🙂  let us go back in time a little and try to take you through our journey 🙂

So it all started a year back.. somewhere around the month of Feb or March as far as we remember when we both pushed ourselves to utilize our tiempo libre (free time 🙂 ) in doing something much more constructive 🙂 the major reason was this but what really pushed us was our love for cooking and savouring new cuisines and dishes 🙂 The idea of having our own food blog came out well and too good to be true 🙂

Once we were clear with what we really need to do, we started to work for finding the name and designing it 🙂 After thinking of lots of names and checking on availability we hooked on to “Miss Foodies”. The punch line was obvious as we used n number of times “ What’s cooking missy 😉 “

The major role was obviously played by our Editor, our very own friend and Parul’s better half 🙂 Ankit Batra who helped us through. He made the blog what it is today. We ate his head way too much as we both were so excited and looking forward to get going. Truly said he is our Eagle eye 🙂 We adore him and love him and thank him 🙂 While he helped us through taking care of the most important part that is the backend, we both spent most of our time cooking in the kitchen 🙂 Selecting recipes, building of our own, taking in puts from our Moms, cooking, experimenting and what not 🙂 Sakshi mastered cooking undoubtedly and I mastered the tasting bit 🙂  Lol… true Parul 🙂 There was work..lots of work… and then came this fine day a year back 3rd May 2013 wherein we published our first post 🙂 Here’s a glimpse of it :

They look yum, don’t they 🙂 We were pretty excited that night.. In Fact hardly slept I guess 🙂 After sometime of publishing our first post we were pretty excited noticing the likes and to top it were food blogger friends who boosted our energies liking the post 🙂 Irony is this very night after an year feels the same 😉 hardly sleeping and talking to all of you out there out of excitement 🙂 then began the era of posts after posts 🙂 Our love for cooking was driving us crazy. But we too realized grooming our other skills as well 🙂 One of them being our love for Food Photography 🙂 Here’s a glimpse:

Wow…feel so proud 🙂 Then came a phase when we started reviewing food places we loved and cherished while travelling. Made our blog informative letting you all know which place is a must visit for good food 🙂 Hope you all remember us sharing Pancakes on the rocks- Sydney , Sky Bar- Bangkok 🙂 But to our surprise the journey of reviewing took our whole experience a notch up where started meeting lot others from food industry , fantastic and  like minded people. Began the era of learning much more and still continuing. Associating with FBAI and receiving appreciation for the restaurant review gave us a feeling of awesomeness 🙂 The era of bloggers meet began. To top it all we were invited by restaurants to taste some good food and  share our experience and keeping our fingers crossed for lot more coming our way 🙂 The experience of tasting good food, savouring on to flavours, discovering best dishes and mock tails made all the effort worth it 🙂 Experiences like the ones at Monkey bar, GourmetItUp, Olive Bistro and many more have really left us with belief in thought “Good work bears great fruits”. Well theres lot more to look forward to as this is just the beginning……………Heres a glimpse of our Restaurant Reviews:

Friends its not easy to sum up the journey in just a post. Just making an effort and feeling awesome going back in the memory lane 🙂 And yes there’s another skill we have seen ourselves getting better at 🙂 Writing skills 🙂 The best of example is a poem Parul wrote for our post of Women’s day special this year 🙂 Femina-the leading womens magazine brand in the country, liked it and shared it on their fb page just recently 🙂 You know how many likes and comments she got in just last five days…….. have a look at this screen shot…..

OMG….… But it came out well and touched thousands of hearts 🙂 So haven’t we groomed ourselves in so many way and achieved so much in our beautiful journey ? Yes we have and this gives us immense encouragement to cook more, live more, experience more, Review much more ;)…… because as we say …. Its just the beginning………….. To the journey we call “legen…..wait for it….dary……. legendary 🙂 “

So Hi again …. After a bit of sleep…..Here we are posting on our Blogs Birthday 🙂 We take this opportunity to thank each one of you to help us reach where we are today 🙂 so do leave us your wishes in comments below or email us at info.missfoodies@gmail.com
