  1. Hi Esme. Thanks for adding my recipe in this page. I have a query. When people will click on “Prepared by Reena Mukherjee” link, its landing to my face book profile page, neither in my blog nor in my facebook page of cookwithreena.
    Can you help me out.

    • Yes the link there would be the one you used when you posted the specific recipe, as I copy your name you used when sharing your post. You must have posted from your personal profile and not one of the others .
