Hi, welcome to my tiny corner of the inter web!
My name is Maria – recipe developer, writer and photographer behind this blog, an outlet to share all the lip-smacking creations that I experiment in my kitchen.
My journey into the culinary world started early. As a young child, I was always curious about every dish, method and the process involved. I was more interested in flipping through cookbooks when the rest of college-mates were glued to romance novels. Born and raised in India, I moved to the US with my wonderful husband and we have created ourselves a small family with two beautiful children.
What would you find here? Creative mash-ups of different foods and flavors. Treats that will satisfy your sweet tooth for days and healthy dishes that can be enjoyed guilt-free. Every recipe that I create always has an inspiration, a light-bulb moment. Sometimes it is the ingredient, the technique or even the moment. I believe in cooking with fresh seasonal ingredients, so you will not find asparagus recipes in January. I’m the kind of person who gets excited to take a trip to the farmers market and you might find me admiring a perfect sweet potato for hours on end (ok, that might be a bit of exaggeration, but you get the idea).
My diet mantra has always been “every thing in moderation”. So, you will find healthy, nutritious dishes and also over-the-top-indulgent ones. I’m no certified nutritionist and every recipe is based on my knowledge that I have gathered over the years. Having no formal training in baking or cooking, my field of education is in Mathematics and Statistics. But, kitchen is where my heart is!
I try to give accurate measurements and methods for each and every recipe. But, if you find an errors or have any difficulty in following a step, just shoot me a comment and I’ll be more that happy to assist you.
All content and pictures that are found in the blog are my own labor of love. You can certainly re-post my pictures and recipes as long as you link it back to me.

Hope you enjoy!
