Dear Taste of Mysore,

It has been a while that I visited your site for browsing...I typically just go to the pages I have previously bookmarked for recipes. but in seeing your new site, I noticed that I am no longer able to search for recipes...The organized list of recipes for breakfast, curries, desserts on the right hand of the page is GONE!! Needless to say I am PANICKING!! I am hooked to your blog and use it as a source of "inside" tips on how my family back home cooks...please do release the menu of items you have, a searchable way of finding recipes would be much appreciated. The list by category is priceless!!! Please bring it back! Thanks as always!!
