  11. And last I want to admit that I am a shopaholic. (I know most of women are…)

Interesting questions to answer…

1. Is your mind where your heart is?
I am presently very focused on experimenting in my kitchen and that is where my heart is…

2. Your favorite food
I like my food healthy and full of flavor, and though it’s hard to point just one specific item, Indian and Mexican dishes stand out for me.

3. Apart from cooking, what are your interests?
I love reading books and watching movies.

4. If you badly want to cook something and you cannot find the ingredients required, what would you normally do?
Initially I would look for a proper substitute, if not available then I’ll put the recipe on shelf and rush for the ingredients.

5. How do you describe "a bad day"?
 Well, If I plan to do some baking (which I love most) and there is a power cut, I feel really bad...

6. Your current working situation - being a housewife is totally acceptable, trust me!!! :)
I am a proud homemaker… and to put it in quotes …
“There is no spectacle on earth more appealing than that of a beautiful woman in the act of cooking dinner for someone she loves.” ― Thomas Wolfe

7. If there was an event you could stop the time at, what would it have been?
I would love to stop the clock at the morning hours when the Sun is just rising and giving that warm glow to the sky.

8. Rate your interest in food blogging on a scale of 1 to 10 - 1 is "least interested" (which I am sure nobody would take!) and 10 being "till I die!!!".
In present frame of my mind it is 10 without any doubt..

9. Intuitive or Calculative?

10. A habit you wish you could control.
My sweet tooth ;)

11. Your best food photography tip.
Use simple crockery especially white.

11 questions to answer by nominees…

  1. What’s the best thing you ever ate?
  2. What is your favorite place for holidaying?
  3. Do you watch TV shows?  If so, which is your favorite?
