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!
This recipe is a really delicious and unique way to use squash which is so
abundant in the summer here in the south. I tried it for the first time at

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
