Welcome to my creative world.
I live in Chicago with my hubby and two beautiful girls aged
8 9 and 3 4.
A little bit about me and how I came to be here. After I finished my college, I studied science, electronics at that, I was looking to do something different. I wanted to be in the creative world. So I studied Fashion design and Pottery for a few years. I dabbled into working in that industry but soon realized that being creative and working for someone else just didn’t work out for me. My dad became more and more insistent that I follow his footsteps and study Law. After several years of practicing Law, there was this nagging sensation that something was lacking. Eventually after the birth of my second daughter, in my sleep deprived state, I figured that I had to give way to my creative side. That is when this blog was born. My original passion was to create wonderful recipes and share them. As with most Indian women, cooking is more or less ingrained since childhood. I learned cooking from my Mom and several aunts. I wanted to make use of my knowledge of cooking with my newfound baking skills and create something that I could share with others but also with my daughters down the line. When I started the blog, I quickly realized that there is no blog without good photography so I started working on my photography. Slowly things improved.
When my children were born, I could sense a change come over me. I no longer wanted the super-fast paced lifestyle where I didn’t think anything of answering emails at 4 AM. I want to really live life and enjoy every moment of it. I want those snuggles with kids albeit we can enjoy those only on week-ends. We try to eat as much seasonal food as we can. I surround myself with plants and we are hoping to really start a good kitchen garden soon where at least some portion of the year we can grow our own food. I would like to share this improved sense of health and wellbeing with you. I would like to share my kitchen and garden mishaps with you and let’s all grow together to make a beautiful world.
Here are couple of images of my lovely kitchen where I love to spend my time creating recipes or just drinking a cup of tea.
