Good news for Ya Salam Cooking

I have a few good things to share that is happening with Ya Salam Cooking that I am proud of. I have had this blog for three years now and have put a lot of time and hard work into running it. I love sharing my love of food and finding exotic recipes and spices to share with my readers. I love all of the fantastic friends I have made through this site and all of the kinds emails I receive daily.

SaudiLife which describes it self as Saudis first portal reached out to me a few weeks ago asking if I would write a column for the paper. They were very kind telling me I can write weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. I am the only food writer that have brought on board so they will be giving me my own page and column. I even get the liberty of naming it. It will be great to share my love of food with a larger audience. I will let you know when I publish my first article.

I also just got an email telling me that I was nominated as one of the 2010 Top African Middle East Cuisine Blog's. These are some of the kind words the email said "As a website dedicated to help those consider a career in cooking, we only provide the best information available. Whether it's a resource to teach you a new cuisine style, or one that provides new ideas to your current
specialty, we feel that it's necessary for those seeking to obtain this information. This is why we've featured your blog, as it is one of the best to teach our readers."

I have been honored to receive many of the awards fellow bloggers have sent me and while they are not as of now up I do have them and yes I plan on showcasing them when I have more time. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to send me one. I appreciate it greatly. Nothing means more to a blogger then recognition in the field they blog.
