the essential tool-kit

I love to cook. I love to eat good food. I love to cook good food that I and others will enjoy eating.


I learned to cook from my mother. We even argue about how to add salt into the dish. She does the measured-method, I shake it in (gasp, I know).


If I am not cooking, I am painting, gardenning, thinking, writing or thinking about doing either one of those activities. I like crafting - much like my late maternal grandmother - I sometimes imagine her watching over me, but I dont have her patience. 


I juggle being mom with my chosen career as a food enthusiast. I have one daughter, and obviously love being a mom - but only because I am blessed to have an intelligent, caring and kind child.


I am, an admitted chai fanatic. My pet peeves include the improper use of the words Chai-tea-latte and Indian-Curry. The correct usage is 'never'.


I love wearing Sarees', taking photographs in macro-mode, particularly of flowers and visting new places that are generations older than me.


There used to be two Master's Degrees with my name on them hanging on the wall in front of me. They reminded me that there are always greater things to pursue in life than the titles one recieved. I have kept them away, knowing I have found my purpose.


I also believe, if one puts their heart and soul into any task, it makes everything worthwhile.


So now you know a little about me. Tell me something about you in the comments below!
