The new whim....

I've been busy! Not the busy busy, but silly busy, but still busy!!

Confused? Of course you are.....
I started a new blog on COOKING!
Ma was pleasantly surprised as I was never famous for my LOVE for cooking like she or most women of my family are.
But the idea was triggered when I had to make a particular dish which I had made only once before but couldnt find the recipe when I needed it the most....
So I thought why not just maintain an online diary and make a blog out of it!
But who would know that a normal blog and a food blog were not the same ball game!!!
A food blog required detailed photographs of ingredients, pics of the in-process activies and of course, of the end product in a well presented way!
So while cooking, I had my faithful camera with me in the kitchen, right by the side of the vegetables-spices-knife-wok and was clicking away furiously while cooking and chopping! SD found it hilarious and called it my new craze. AD was perplexed and asked 'Ma, are you cooking the camera?'
Today dinner was served an hour late as my simultaneous activity of chopping-mixing-clicking-cooking took a tad bit long! And to add to the self-inflicted woe, M has gone off to Kolkata for ten days on an emergency visit to her village.
So pandemonium reigns supreme at home and more particularly in my kitchen as the new whim is on in full swing....let's see how long this lasts!!!

Kudos for starting the food blog. ...I loved the 'are you cooking the camera?' remark!

The pics deal scared me too! IMHO, the ones that accompany cookbooks and some of the food blogs're touched :( y'know, like the bell peppers always look bright green and shiny, as if it's not been cooked at all! Just a thought!

This is indeed a revelation...reg. the touching up of the food pics!
No wonder, my cooked bell peppers , carrots look a dulled down green & orange....and I kind of go into a mild depression as to why my pics arent attractive enough!! lol!!

More power to you! I hate to cook. I'm not sure why. I can cook. I just don't like to. Good luck on your new cooking blog.

Thanks for visiting my blog.
