My earliest memories are all about food. I grew up in a family that loves to eat and laugh, unarguably in that order. I even remember times, where the discussion and anticipation of the next meal began before the dishes for the previous meal, were cleared! I am often left wondering why I never made a career of it. Oh well..
My mom and grandmother are both exceptional cooks. When I was around 10-12, I realized I would be left to my own devices to feed myself once I left my mom's house. I promptly involved myself in acquainting myself with every aspect of the ritual with gusto. I promised myself that I would never suffer a mediocre meal if I could help it!
I have come to realize that the best gift you can give your loved ones, is "you" in perfect health! Since it is impossible for me to go on a diet, I try to nourish myself in a way that I can follow for the rest of my life. Since I do not much like salads and such, I am on a constant lookout for healthy vegetarian recipes. I am always eager to share whatever I create, or stumble across with friends and family. This is just a way to share it in a bigger way, keeping a record in the process.
Like the majority of the populace in the Silicon Valley, I am a techie (I know, how mind-numbingly unoriginal of me), and love to create exciting products for the greater good of humanity (gasp!).
I wish to dedicate this website to my mom who has been my biggest culinary (and all other kinds of) inspiration.
