Hello!!! Thanks for visiting my space and taking time to read about me. I am Kalyani and I live in chennai. I was working in IT industry as a software engineer for 7 years. I had to quit my job after my little one arrived and during this time I found my passion! Yes it's cooking and clicking and so this blog!  Though I am fond of food and like to taste different varieties, but started my own cooking after my marriage as I never entered into the kitchen because of my lovable mon and only had the opportunity to enjoy her yummy food. But after marriage, I started cooking vigorously. My husband is a best critic and that helps me to improve my cooking.  The recipes posted here are tried and tasted in my kitchen,traditional native recipes from my mom, baby foods which I feed my baby and few other recipes tried from friends, cookbook or other food blogs.Being a health conscious person, most of my recipes are focuses on health.
