A Plate Full of Goodness

Fresh salad with mixed  lettuce and crunchy apples

 

Ok! Lo and behold!Finally the wait is over  and I am writing my first ever blog! My passion for cooking has been there right from my childhood ..Kitchen somehow seemed to fascinate me right from when I was a little girl. And I think  most little girls love to play with small little kitchen sets and imitate their mom cooking .and yes no doubt I have gone through the same phase .Always wanted to cook someday like  my Mom .MOM..the very word brings in so much of happiness and makes me  feel at ease .Anyways let me not divert from my topic.So this childhood fascination for kitchen and the different flavors and aroma has developed into a passion for cooking now.

I love to cook and experiment with food .So my friends .ufff.the list is huge ..always have been telling me .DEE why don’t you start blogging .Your love for cooking and experimenting can be penned down and reached out to more people!!

I have been thinking for a while that i need to blog but kept procrastinating.Finally here it is-my first ever blog!

Now the other big question that popped  my mind , was WHERE DO I BEGIN??.Food is like a huge ocean ..So many types of cuisines, flavours..etc..So then the thought came over to start writing about something healthy..With the fitness fever going on everywhere and people being obsessed with weight loss( no doubt..including me)and good looks..people are inclined towards eating healthy and light food .

SO here  I begin my first recipe!!!
