Peace and blessings be upon you ╰⊰✿

Thanks a bunch for stopping by. You have no idea how much I am grateful for your lovely presence here.

My name is Nusrat – I live with my husband, unfathomable tranquility and a camera in Dallas, Texas.

I compile my food photos and stories behind the photos here, basically for my newborn babydoll. I’d like her to get the fact that “Cooking is an ancient act, an art of survival”.


Have a fun day and may God continue to bless you in your strive to get a righteous life.


You’re welcome to send me some love, inspiration, sunshine and drop some advice, opinion, wisdom, smile before you leave ♥

  10. আপনার ব্লগ দেখে আনন্দিত হই। যারা রান্নার প্রতি আগ্রহ দেখায় আমি তাদের সাথেই আছি। শুভেচ্ছা।

    • আপনার মত বড় মাপের শেফের কাছ থেকে এ ধরনের মন্তব্য পাওয়া অনেক ভাগ্যের ব্যাপার। অনেক অনেক ধন্যবাদ আমার ব্লগে নজর বুলিয়ে যাবার জন্য। শুভেচ্ছা 🙂

      • ধন্যবাদ বোন।
        আমার চেষ্টা হচ্ছে নেটে আমাদের রান্না গুলো সহজে তুলে ধরা। যাতে খুজলেই সবাই পেয়ে যান। আমার প্রায় ৪০০ শত রেসিপি আছে এযাবৎ। প্রবাসী এবং ব্যাচেলরদের জন্য রান্না তুলে দেয়াই আমার কাজ।

        আপনার ব্লগে আমি আগেও আরো এসেছি। আপনার ছবি এবং রান্না দেখে প্রান জুড়ায়।

        ভাল থাকুন। শুভেচ্ছা।
