My name is S and welcome to my blog , a canvas for sharing recipes, cooking ventures, travel adventures and musings. I consider this blog a creative outlet – a medium to reach out to people,  for I relish creativity –  I think it enhances ones thinking, helps channel that energy and in the process brings out the best in a person.

Food is a part and parcel of our everyday lives. I grew up being exposed to good food and great cooks. I am a vegetarian and these are the homemade vegetarian recipes that I have enjoyed cooking and sharing with my family. When I started cooking, I discovered that I enjoy cooking, experimenting and also learning new dishes. So I used this platform of blogging for sharing the recipes and culinary ideas with people across the world – some recipes are my own inventions, some are ideas or recipes from friends and family that I have tried out and want to share with people and some are experiments of recipes from the internet – fellow bloggers. My husband and I believe in healthy eating and so our experiments are aimed at making some traditional or common recipes in a more healthy way… The Indian diet being highly protein deficient and carb rich- we try to increase the protein quotient and minimise carbs in some of my attempts.

Travelling is something that I hold near to my heart too. Just love to go to different places, understand the culture and people…try out their cuisines, their festivals…every trip brings with it a whole gamut of experiences and just broadens one’s perceptive beyond expression…What is travel without Photography? Photography is the latest art that I have taken an immense liking too. My experiments started off on a more serious note thanks to my husband- H – who is into photography big time…I use his CANON 40D DSLR and to start with, tried a hand at food photography – taking shots of my experiments in the kitchen and gradually moving onto other contours and areas as I learn the various techniques…So this blog is also an outlet that showcases some of my experiences travelling and my experiments at photography.
