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.
