Round up of Spotlight : Summer Food & Drinks

Finally, It's time to present the round-up of 2nd issue of Spotlight event : Summer food & drinks. Nowadays, weather is acting so strange, Summer comes before we start enjoying the beautiful Spring.
Thanks to all my blogger friends who actively participated in this event and made it one interesting event to mark. Incidently, few days after I announced this event, my Gmail account had hacked and I lost access to my blog "APPYAYAN", no idea if I'll get back my blog again, for which I worked so hard for last 2 years. Luckily, I had another blog for my recipe Index, which I'm currently blogging from, with other mail account. I tried my best to let all of you know my new email address for sending entries....may be this event could be more successful if this incident hasn't happened with me.
Thank you all again for your enthusiastic participation and friends, visit me here from now on until I get hold of my blog.
