I Read somewhere that, “cooking is a talent and skill both! You must love it enough to build up skill but if you aren’t talented and imaginative you won’t be fixing any truly interesting dishes or meals”.
Today i am very much excited to introduce you to a lady who has both qualities. When i saw her recipes i was truly inspired with her work and i decided to ask her to guest post for me.I am grateful to her that she accepted my invitation and here with us ,sharing a very nice recipe.Now over to you Ambreen..:)
Hi everyone! I’m Ambreen, a Pakistani food blogger sharing my favorite recipes on Simply Sweet ‘n Savory. My blog features simple recipes, made from scratch and using common ingredients found in a typical Pakistani kitchen. I’m a sweets loving girl, so most of my recipes are centered around cakes, cookies and desserts
Thank you so much AINY for inviting me to guest post, it is such an honor to guest post on your awesome site. I’m excited to be here on AinyCooks to share a simple yet delicious cookie recipe
