I love Umm K's blog, its colourful with delicious food. Bismillah Masha Allah I sense her passion for cooking excellent cuisines on every visit and wonder how much does she weigh.. lol :) On a personal level and through my interactions with her on our network, I found her to be friendly and generous. Here's an interview with our expert chef and winner of the 2010 Best Food Blog "Umm K".
Did you expect to win? and How does it feel to win?
I never expected to win! I was up against some very stiff competition and didn't think I stood a chance :) But alhamdulillah, it does feel good to be recognized for my efforts. Up until now I thought my audience was restricted to a few family and friends, but this award has proven me wrong - alhamdulillah!
What would you like to say to your voters?
Thank you, thank you, thank you! To know that there are people who enjoy my recipes and can benefit from whatever tips and advice I can offer is rewarding enough itself. But to have people go out of their way and vote for me - it's very special!
What are your goals for 2011?
I don't specifically make new goals for the start of a year, instead I try and work on the few goals I already have: strengthening my imaan and being a dutiful and obedient slave to Allah, subhana wa ta'ala. In terms of the Muslim Wife's Kitchen, I hope to start a tips and advice feature, working from the questions I receives from readers and to categorize my recipes for easy access, insha'allah.
Congratulations and thank you Umm K
