Cooking has always been a passion in my family. From my grandmother’s traditional dishes to Amma’s daily meals to Daddy’s sumptuous Sunday lunches to my uncle’s Christmas feasts to my cousin’s amazing cakes.
Yet for a very long time I never bothered to try being an enthusiast in the kitchen. Well it would be wrong to say I did not know to cook! When I was young, my mother made sure to get my lazy self to help around in the kitchen. And I would be happy to whip up some desserts or cook occasionally for friends. But never a passion! In fact there have been times when someone else would think the art of cooking eludes me. I was either too busy with my work or too lazy to cook.
After marriage, I moved to a new country and decided to take a break from work. And then baking became my new hobby. In fact my mother-in-law was happy to encourage. It all started when she got me a couple of cake tins and a box of Betty Crocker Cake mix. The cake came out good and I wanted to try the next one from scratch. Soon enough I started to enjoy baking. 🙂
The next step would obviously be to brag! LOL! 😀 So here I am to share the recipes I have tried with perhaps a few tips of my own.
