Gourmand World Cookbook Win, A Survey and Instagram

So, I have some exciting news for you. But first, how was your weekend? Anything exciting that you did? ( leave a comment below!) Mine was quite low-key because weekdays can be hectic. OK. Now that you have left a comment below telling me about your weekend, let’s talk about the exciting news.

News One


Do you remember Seasonal Cooking e-cookbook (->) that was published almost a year ago?  I wrote it on a whim because I wanted you lovely friends and readers to have a great time here and in your kitchens. . It has been an exciting journey ever since that day with over 250 downloads! I am grateful. The good news is that the e-book participated in the Gourmand World Cookbook  Awards competition as an entrant from Uganda. It won from the country. I was surprised because, like I said, it was created on a whim. Furthermore, the book made it to the top 2 cookbooks from Africa! Exciting is an understatement. Click here to -> see the short list.  This award is dedicated to you all awesome readers who take time to come here week by week to read these words, get recipes to try and get inspired.

Because we are all in a happy moment right now, I wanted us to get to know each other more. I thought it would be a great idea to create this survey that will help me provide better content for you my friends and improve your experience here on the blog. So I am asking you to kindly spare 5 minutes to answer this short survey. Also share it with anyone who reads the blog. Click image to answer survey
