Add some spice to your life

If you are like me, you just like to sit idle, wait till your mom prepares the mouth-watering dish, jump on it as quick as it arrives on the table, and after some voracious moments, brush up your tummy and say - "you are the best, mom!" Life is beautiful, eh!

So far so good. Until a week ago, I didn't have to worry a bit about "preparing" or "cooking" food. It was always there. My mom and dad both possess the finest of cooking skills of all the people I know. And as a result, having a cuisine on the fly has been a normal phenomena. I had been so used to get well-cooked food ready on the table that I thought it to be a perpetual arrangement. Fool's paradise!

Now that I will be leaving the country for two years for minimum, the paradise I have been living in is lost. Completely. There would not be anyone out there with the dishes. Then would be the time for cooking. COOKING. Now is the time to learn cooking!

Though I had a premonition to be a unworthy pupil in the realm of cooking, I am surprised now to find the 'cook' in me. For the last few days, I have been co-operating my mom and dad in preparing the dinner. And I like what I am learning! I believe it flows in the blood..ahem! Cooking is just an art, it has to be.

Just to let you know, one of my friends is very good at cooking. He specializes in cooking for large no. of people. And he is damn good!
If, by any chance, you are interested, find some good recipes here.

From Heaven's kitchen it is me signing of, ciao!
