With so many blogging events going on, one tends to get creative,and think of interesting entries. I must say the blog events being posted, surely gets us experimenting with our culinary creativity.....with our kitchens turning into labs, and our family members, guinea pigs..........its fun over all. Though I have been on the blogging scene since a year now, but I got regular pretty recently, so I catch up with the events, from my other blogger friends.
Recently I came across the Vow-JFI bell peppers event, hosted by JFI and VoW. Bell peppers are pretty versatile, I think they can be used in any kind of cuisine. Be it Indian, Chinese, Italian, continental, it fits in pretty well. As soon as I read about the event, I quickly ran to my fridge, and saw I had a few bell peppers. I simply got cooking.

Thanks pooja for the event.
