Awesome and easy! Looks great Anu! Have to try it out - not for breakfast though!!

Just something I noticed on your blog: Your pictures seem very large and are flowing into the sidebar, making the entries on the sidebar difficult to read. Not sure if you noticed this with your Browser, but with Firefox and Safari it does.
