My canvas for food, photography and life.....

I believe that there is a deep association between food and memories.. every recipe has a story behind it...some long..some short....
So grab a cup of coffee, pull a chair and enjoy the little stories that I share with you.....some with recipes.....some without ....

A wonderful poet once said "The universe is not made of atoms ; it's made of stories"... And I couldn't agree more.....

Thanks Swati! My oven is a Bajaj Majesty 3500 TMC SS Model...Earlier I used to bake on the convection setting of my LG Microwave but I find the results of the separate oven much better.. take care...
