Copyright Issues and Recipes

Since my first post, I’ve received a few requests for the recipes to be posted on the blog. However, having considered this suggestion and done my bit of research, I’ve decided I will not be doing so. Firstly, the recipes I tried out last week aren’t my own and I don’t want to run into copyright issues by featuring them on this blog. Secondly, while I did adapt the recipes to my own taste and depending on the availability of ingredients, it should be okay for me to post the adapted recipes; however, this would take more of my time and I just can’t devote that sort of time to the blog right now. So if you are interested in a particular recipe, get in touch with me at preeya(nospace)josef_at_yahoo_dot_co_dot_in and I will be very happy to share the recipe with you. In some cases the recipes are also available online so I could direct you to the appropriate website. If I do get inventive and concoct a totally new recipe I will try and share it, but that would be quite challenging as I hardly follow precise measures when I cook like this! I also understand it can be hard to decipher the ingredients included in a preparation from a picture and an exotic name, so I will provide short descriptions.

I hope these changes make for a better reading experience. Please do let me know and don’t be afraid to post comments, even critical ones. 🙂

My foray into photo-blogging

I’m a first time mom and I’ve decided to stay at home for the next few months looking after my dear little son. While I’m taken up with his cooing and tumbling and totally squish-able smiles, I also have this pressing urge to be creative. I’ve always striven to be creative in the kitchen and I think the kitchen is proving to be the perfect platform for me express this need, at this point in my life. So this blog is about capturing my efforts in the kitchen.

My husband and I are total foodies, and in the past, in order to satisfy our gargantuan appetite we’ve eaten huge quantities of what qualifies as junk food (fast food, confectionery etc.). For this reason, I also want this blog to serve as a food diary; I think this would make me more conscious of what I’m plating up at the dinner table and work to check the food habits I’m inculcating at home. As for the dishes I prepare, I may not always have the time to go into the nitty gritties of the process, but I will try my best to blog the finished effort in pictures, from Sunday to Sunday. I hope you enjoy this food journey with me!
