I am an Electronic Engineer and now a Housewife. 'Cooking' was never my passion. My mom & my relatives would have never thought that I could cook someday, let alone the thought of me having my own cooking blog site. After marriage I started cooking for my husband, initially it was a job for me and I never realized when that job became my passion. Now Cooking moves me & Cooking for my family & friends is a fantastic way to bond, reduce stress, and feel satisfied.
