Announcing "Recipes for the rest of us – Starters"

Recipes for the rest of us is aimed at introducing newbies to the joy of cooking. Started by Ramki of One Page Cookbooks , this event focuses on very simple, fool proof recipes. When Ramki invited me to host “recipes for the rest of us”, an event guest hosted by various bloggers each month, I was happy to accept and chose my theme as “starters“, as this is my favourite course of any feast!
Guidelines :
1. Cook anything vegetarian, eggless and simple, and post the recipe on your blog.
2. Multiple entries / archived entries welcome. However, do edit the archived post to include a link to this post and One Page Cookbooks .

3. Include the logo in your post if you wish.

4. Please send an e-mail to sunshinemom(at)gmail(dot)com with the following details on or before 20th APRIL 2009.

Note :

1. Please avoid exact measurements. Please use very simple measurements like a handful or a pinch.

I was to do this announcement on 19th, but I lost track of time!! My apologies to Ramki about that.
