10 years back, if someone had suggested that I would cook my heart out, I would have simply laughed. I had a love-hate relationship with kitchen before marriage. Loved to gorge, hated to actually sweat it out in the kitchen :P Though I knew marriage would change everything, what I really didn't know was how much I would  enjoy my time in the kitchen. Of course, I have to thank my hubby dearest for the change. I truly realised that the way to my man's heart was through his stomach and from then on there was no looking back. I still fondly remmber all those days of burnt cabbage and uncooked rice. Hubby dearest had to bear the brunt of many of my cooking disasters.  Blogging my hearth adventures began 2 years ago more as a distraction and within no time became a passion. Also, it became a platform to make some good friends forging the bond for a long-lasting friendship.

When I see dedicated bloggers sizzling their hearths, I get inspired to shed my lethargy and do better. So it was a pleasure when Radhika invited me to join a group that aims in creating magic in kitchen by setting challenges, pushing boundaries, teasing palettes in a wide range of cuisines and in essence dishing out great food.

Avant Garde Cookies are all that and much more. Joining me in this culinary trail is an eclectic bunch of bloggers who are in nut-shell A.W.E.S.O.M.E 

Besides me ,Say hello to :-

Radhika  :- The group is her brain-child. A very talented cook and a passionate blogger. She inspires me with her energy and dedication. Constantly striving to better herself, her space is a delightful mix of {life, spice and everything nice}

Anusha :- A dainty lass who in her own words is a super-happy lovable wife. Her charm and wit rubs on you and when she pours out the hearth adventures in her inimitable style, the result is magic. 

Kavitha :- This girl is a bundle of spunk and fun. Mixing CA and aprons is a piece of cake and her blog is a proof of that. Her would-be is gonna be one lucky man.

Roshni :- A dedicated blogger, her space is a fine mix of recipes cutting across international cuisines .

Veena :- A talented lady. Not just cooking and baking she is an avid quilter and an entrepreneur too ! Hop in to her space for yum eggless bakes.

Jayanthi :-  Her space delights you with stunning cakes and tasty recipes. Besides her clicks are phenomenal too.
