A food blogger, culinary enthusiast and photographer with a obsession for cooking, experimenting and Food styling– Shema George
I am just "the girl next door" kind of person with no frills attached. I just happened to love food, everything about it, especially the art, culture and science behind great food and that's basically what makes me blog. I am an IT professional by day, a mother of an extremely energetic toddler and a home-maker. In tune to my Indian background and heritage, you will find a lot of Indian recipes on my blog but my love for other cuisines with related recipes are also on display. Myriad cuisines, recipes and cooking techniques, the interesting science behind the various techniques, the art of baking and crafting beautiful cakes are just some of the things that intrigue and inspire me to blog. I believe that a good dish is the result of a good recipe and the love that goes into it while making it.
A beautiful family- Thanks to my extremely supportive husband, my lovely daughter, my parents, sister and all my great friends for their constant encouragement. You guys keep me going. Words can’t describe how indebted I am to you for everything you do for me!
Lately I have been hit with this question several times from my near and dear friends. So this really made me think - why? Here are the answers
- Pure Joy: Cooking is a source of joy in its purest form to me- Very therapeutic!! Even when I was facing the worst days of my life, cooking brought peace to me and helped me relax.
- Organize: To keep my recipes organized.
- Idle mind is a devil's workshop: I don't want to sit idle and be a devil!! LOL :))
- A sense of using my time wisely, a feeling of achievement and sharing that blogging brings to me
- For my daughter: Even when I am not there beside my daughter, especially when she has a family of her own, I want to be with her virtually through these recipes that I cherish. Oh come on Shema - That was very sentimentally philosophical.
My husband is the VERY reason I started blogging. He is the one who prodded me to channel my passions and pen my experiences through this medium, instilling in me the confidence to begin and providing me with all the support I need ever since. He is also the editor and critic of my blogs and of course the primary taster and judge. He claims that his job of having to taste all the dishes is not a task to be taken lightly but he is forever willing to sacrifice in support of my passion ;)
The Assistant Food stylist, Helper & Motivator – Mikaela Sarah George a.k.a Mia
Our 3 year old Mikaela is also a mini-connoisseur of good food. She genuinely compliments me when the food is good and I must admit, I do feel truly happy and appreciated when she does so :) She has been a part of each and every photo shoot and does contribute with her original ideas even though she sometimes tries to sneak a bite of the food that is being photographed. By now, she has got used to the fact that mommy cooks and take photos of what she cooks so on some days when a dish is not photographed it keeps her wondering and confused ..LOL !! She is also the main inspiration and reason for some of the cake recipes, like the “Yo gabba gabba cake” which was baked for her second birthday.
I really appreciate you spending your precious time and stopping by my space. I and so glad you did and hope you enjoyed it
