About this Cook
I have been happily married to the love of my life since August 2008. I love cooking for my hubby, and my family, and believe in cooking from heart. Other than when baking, I don't really use measurements... just a feeling and love. :)
My favorite things to cook
I am really good at the basic dinner meals, roasts and pastas... I love cooking lasagnas and such but would like to try my hand at harder more professional techniques like Sous Vide.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being of Indian decent my parents are both vegetarian... I however married an Irish Catholic man who was raise on meat and potatoes so my everyday cooking is very different than what my mom taught me. I still love Indian cooking but try to encorporate meats when I can.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest triumph was learning to make eggplant parmasean. Not necessarily because it was hard but because I have always HATED egg plant but in this dish it was delicious!! I was just thrilled to find a good recipe that I could use this veggie in. :)
My cooking tragedies
Steak. I cannot cook a steak without burning it. Some things I just have to leave to my hubby. Luckily for us, he makes the best steak I have ever had!! Everyone is always floored by his steak cooking skills.
