Showered with awards

I am ecstatic...there are no words in my limited vocabulary to describe the feeling. The other day I had these awards passed on by Shama of easy2cook recipes.
Again, Chitra of Ratatouille - Any one can cook has been sweet to post one of my recipes as T&T while passing on these awards.
And the dream route seems to continue as Shobha of Anubhavati - Tastes from my kitchen has done the honours.
It is kind of awe that is humongous!! I am just floating in the air. There can be no better recognition for one's simple efforts.The awards have to go to blogs which
Inspire you
Encourage you
May give Fabulous information
A great read
Has Scrumptious recipes
Any other reasons you can think of that make them Scrumptious!

and the rules are,
Put the logo on your blog or post.
Nominate at least 7 blogs
Let them know that they have received this Scrumptious award by commenting on their blog. Share the love and link to this post and to the person you received your award from.
Though I have utmost admiration for all the bloggers I have been asked to recognise atleast eight others. All of you know how difficult this is. However, let me try, and the eight of you please pass it on to more friends.
Have also been tagged by Shobha. I've done the tag on an earlier post here. But two questions she had answered and coined remain to be tackled. They are,
What do you consider to be unethical in blogging?
It is disheartening to see your effort and work being stolen..hence PLAGIARIZING is most unethical.
What is your most prized possession in your kitchen??
I have few utensils handed down from my grandmother. They bear the initials VD to denote my grandpa's name, few of these are his mother's. Those heavy stainless steel utensils that have survived three generations are precious to me and best loved is the Mixie!

Now to add a question of my own…
Which gadget of the modern kitchen is of least use to you?
Trust me, I have a few in the list...just want to be sure I'm not alone there.

I would love to pass this on to these wonderful bloggers
Muskhan and Sadhana of A2Z Vegetarian Cuisine
Jyoti of Food Seasons
Roma Sharma of Roma's space
Nithya of Nits Arts and Crafts and
Rajeshwari of RAKS Kitchen

Thank you Shama, Chitra and Shobha once again and all others for being supportive and doing a great job.
