The start of this blog was my husband’s idea. A spunky new camera – his Christmas gift to me – turned every plate of food into my willing subject for daily photography practice. Before too long, there it was: an album I called ‘Good Eats’ on Facebook. “Where’s the recipe?” everyone asked. So, here I am and here are some of the recipes and tales of my inspiration.
I have been cooking since I was eight. In far-away India, an omelette with onions prepared under my father’s watchful eyes was my very first attempt at cooking. The rest just followed. I come from a family of superbly picky eaters! I haven’t inherited that trait, but that doesn’t keep me from critiquing a plate of food that doesn’t hold up to its name.
I love to cook, style, and take a picture – or ten – before serving the concoction up to my ever so patient husband, Tony, and our little girl, Saira, or to a dining room full of family and friends.
What I like to cook is whatever I can find in the grocery store. Fresh vegetables, seafood, or a new product inspire me; so does Food Network on TV, occasionally a magazine or a cookbook, and most importantly a yearning for something new, something fun.
Food is such a wonderful thing. Besides everything wonderful it does, it also bonds us. What could be more rewarding than bonding with people, new and old, over and over again? Food is so worth it!
Thank you for visiting. I hope you enjoy reading where my recipes come from. I have come to realize how much I look forward to hearing from all of you. Most importantly the thought of my little girl growing up to be able to read this takes me to a whole new level of happiness.
Cooking and eating is complete therapy. Enjoy.
