Versatile Blogger Nomination


the-versatile-blogger-award-logo-26-5-14

This is my first ever nomination on Word press and many thanks to SandraDanby. She has been a regular supporter to this amateur food blogger whose blog is not even a year old. I have followed her blog regularly as I really appreciate and like to read her views and her take on the book she reviews. I’m eagerly waiting for her book Ignoring Gravity – http://michelleclementsjames.com/2014/06/01/ignoring-gravity-by-sandra-danby/ to come to India soon .

I’m not much of a versatile person, or it has been the opinion of my loved ones as they see me very stubborn. But yes this blog has helped me focus on Cooking in a different manner and opened the Pandora box for me. Now it’s almost been a year that I take this task of cooking the recipes to the T and even taking care on the presentation part (which has not improved till date but I’m working on it). My inspirations have been the following fellow bloggers and the entire nominated are not into cooking but looking at a life with prism view.

Seven things about me –

I live for sweet things I guess evident from my blogs name

I took to cooking more seriously since I lost my life’s balance due to slip disc surgery.

I’m a movie buff and can watch Pretty Woman, Sabrina, Roman holiday, Runaway bride and many more umpteen times….let me cut it short…Audrey Hepburn, Gregory Peck, Humphrey Bogart, and many more from the Black and white era.

I’m an engineer by qualification and took to Human Resource and Training as profession.

My hometown is Jaipur and I always, love to see a tourist’s perspective when they visit my city.

I’m a vegetarian and took to eating Non-veg for a brief period of time. Nevertheless it helped me understand the taste and now helps while I cook for my husband who is a Pure Non-vegetarian.

I love to travel but due to my surgery have been grounded for quite some time. Looking forward to spread the wings again soon.

Published by Richa Bhargava Mitra

A food enthusiast who finds cooking a stress buster. A core Rajasthani married to a Bengali, my kitchen is always happily churning out dishes covering both the states as well as many other experiments including all things sweet :) Baking has never been a part of my growing years and messing around in the kitchen schedule. Primarily because baking without egg never seemed like an option...why ? Well this goes wayyy back. I am a Bhargava who are strictly vegetarians by choice and religion. Hence no onion, garlic , eggs etc can even enter the house..forget the kitchen. But growing years of every generation had their share of baked goodies which always had eggs. My Grandfather ( Mother's father) used to assist in a bakery during his college days in Rawalpindi..this was before India's independence and hence all the bakeries etc were British. My grampa still swears by the taste of all the amazing patisseries and almond milk etc. My mother had her share during her Convent school days and so did I. For my father there was a twist, by the time he grew up his mother had allowed onion and eggs in kitchen ....yippeee. But then eventually every one grows up and the religion factor comes into the picture. Hence till date at my Mother's place no onion in the kitchen. But i married a bengali who was nowhere near to be a vegetarian. So after many... failed, not so successful, will do, oohh good, disaster, can you keep the taste consistent, too much salt and loads of patience i have finally managed to start cooking the way dishes are supposed to be. Hence my blog focuses on baked goodies, vegetarian Bhargava food and Bengali food that i have learned from my husband and In laws. Not to miss the name SweetJaw as i cannot stay away from sweet ..not in any form but i guess cakes, cookies, tarts, pastries, Indian sweets in fact any things that is either baked, deep fried, and has chocolate , icing sugar is bound be the best. So my blog's name is shamelessly SweetJaw
