Hey there! I am Naina, part-time neat freak, part-time cook. This causes problems when some of my cooking experiments leave my kitchen looking like a tornado has run through it. My sous chef (my words, not his) on most days is my husband of 11 years, who also helps me to power through the mess. A (not-so) recent addition to our family is our beautiful, precocious
15-month 4-year old daughter, officially referred to as ‘The Munchkin’. Our lives now more or less revolve around her & hence the cooking we do now are quick fix recipes, with the occasional time-consuming special meals created on weekends & holidays.
My love affair with cooking began when I was still at school, initially helping mom in the kitchen & then trying out new recipes & improving my knife skills, watching Chinese chefs on cable TV (remember ‘Yan can cook’ ?).
I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a blog for some time now, but have been putting it off till I had more time on my hands. But like they say, there is no time like the present, hence here I am!
This blog is intended to be a chronicle of the ‘special’ recipes that I try out. By special, I mean the ones that taste great and are different from the millions available out there. And since this is my blog, I am entitled to my opinion :). They may not all be original recipes and where applicable, I will credit the owner of the recipe. I also hope to pass these recipes to my little girl through this blog, so that’s my ulterior motive.
There may also be random musings which have nothing to do with food; you’ve been warned!
