Happy hosting dear and congrats on 5 years and more...will sure to mail you with honest reply...:)

Here i have my comments dear...
Q1.The index like "home,About me,privacypolicy" etc..should be a big bigger i felt its sandwiched small when compared to the header tag and posts down.
you have two "about me" columns on side bar and on the above tag-i feel its using twice the space for same content. I use the same pattern on my blog too, so am totally fine with look but it goes a bit lengthy down so you can divide it to two layout columns on right side.
Q2.Honestly i have not tried recipes from your blog, but would love to and found you through FB only because i was attracted by your photographs :)
Q3.I feel recipes on our blog should be bloggers choice other than recipe requests because our uniqueness is known only to ourselfs. its always tried and tested in our kitchen works on blog too.
i am sure my answers are big but more than giveaway i am happy that this will help my blogging buddy - happy blogging.

Congrats sis, 5years of blogging thats really tremendous.

Some of my suggestions ok ok my requests i must say, why dont u change ur template as something catchy than this usual simple one. Also i would like to see some authentic Kerala dishes from ur kitchen here and few more cake decorations from u with stepwise pictures, so that peoples like me will definitely try their hands in cake decorating.Apart from this, love ur space and obviously am a big fan of ur clicks.

I have bookmarked few recipes from ur space,but yet to try them.

Keep rocking sis.

Hmmm....
1)I will be happy to see some fondant cake section in your blog. Like once a month u can do fondant basics with step by step pics like how to make fondant cake, cover it up, how to mix colours in fondant, which colours to use,how to fondant rose etc etc. This will be very helpful and we all learn and make like u did.
2)I tried your carrot cupcakes long long back and they were truly a delight :)
3)I will be happy to see vegetarian south Indian recipes :)
All d best for many more years to come. U are a sweetheart and talented person (not buttering u at all, I always feel that)
