~ Charismatic Yellow ~
In Indian mythology yellow is the color of Gods !
Nothing here is complete without a dash of yellow.
A bride to be adorns yellow, a new house is decorated
with yellow, festivals are incomplete without yellow
marigolds , sunflowers & a smear of turmeric.
In our culture yellow means a new beginning & a
sunshine of love, warmth and happiness.
After completing 3 yrs of blogging Little Food Junction

not the least many more recipes definitely with a healthier
twist for our tiny lil eaters ...... Isn't it nice to add a tinge
of yellow to a new beginning ...............

your apron & get ready to salivate those tiny taste buds.
