We landed on Diwalin night. The city was awake with firecrackers, music, lights and people everywhere. Nameeta was leaving to go to a puja(prayer) at midnight so we decided to join her. Didn't go to bed until 4 am and even at this hour the city was alive! Diwali is the festival of lights.
I like food, wine, the ocean, technology, cooking, fashion, music, netflix, celebrity gossip, manhattan, my baby girl, warm sheets out of the dryer, sunday mornings, food blogging.....
I started cooking in 2008 and it became a way of working through unexpected life challenges. It was also a way to remember mom and get involved in something that she loved. I come from a family of cooks and food lovers so it was a easy choice for me. Today it's become a passion. I use cooking as a way to express myself.
And if you know me you would know that I love to COOK because I love to EAT!! If you try any of my recipes, please please let me know what you think, what you liked and what you didn't like. Thanks!
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of loved ones, to earn the appreciation of honest critics. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a little bit better whether by a healthy child or a garden patch; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
