Microwave Easy Cooking event 2nd Anniversary with Potluck Party!

This edition marks the second year completion of Microwave Easy Cooking Event. Exactly a year back, I was writing about this, please read that for more details. I am repeating something from that post so that I can remember back on those wonderful months every month, spent looking over the entries!

When I was writing all those mails to dear friends who poured in to say they would love to host the Microwave Easy Cooking, I kept the August month for myself, being selfish to celebrate the second Anniversary, hosting it myself! Time has really flown! I know I repeat myself here, but I really wonder at the creativity and the enthusiasm shown by all my blogger friends.

I get many mails saying how they love this event as it helps them learn something new. Though when announcing the event, I knew its going to be hard for people to cook everything in Microwave let alone based on themes. But can you believe we have had nearly 23 editions of themed events on Microwave. Starting from Sweets, to full course meals everything has been tried.
