"Hi, salam, namastay, chaao to everybody.. Meet me I am Monu Teena recently blogging on Recipes Passion :) As clearly mentioned from my Blog title, cooking is more than a passion for me. I am truly inspired with nature and traditional flavors, loves to come up with new stuff and keep searching on new recipes for my blog. Not only cooking, baking has the same importance for me. I baked my first Vanilla Cake when i was only in 10th standard under my mom's assistance. She taught me how to bake a cake, how to whip a cream? I did icing on top and frosted with pineapples. It was a big achievement for me at that time. Almost 10 years have been passed but I still call myself a learner. Other than my passion I am Telecommunication Engineer by profession and a student of management sciences. Happily married too. It was a little introduction about myself.
I am glad to be invited at Gloria's place, thanks a lot Gloria dear for taking out your precious slot for me. I met Gloria in our bloggy world, seriously she has so many wonderful collection of recipes. I was truly amazed by her desserts and vegetarian recipes. I started following her, after a week or two, found her on Facebook. When we started conversation, i found her such a sweet heart, so friendly and a humble person. Very happy to have her in my friends list. Hope our friendship will get more stronger from time to time. Well I am so grateful to her, this is truly a wonderful experience to me on her blog. When she asked me for a guest post, i started work on that. Later on decided, the recipe that i am going to share is "Cherry Bundt Cake crowned with Honey Almonds". This Cake will go best in parties, holidays, Christmas or in festivals. Lets move to the recipe
