I have been passionate about cooking since I was about 9 years old.  Today, I enjoy cooking for my family & friends as well as cooking often with my 2 young children.  I am the author of the unique childrens cookbook Picture Me Cooking and the voice behind the food blog Souffle Bombay.  I cherish the memories that cooking creates, to me cooking = love.

My Love Affair With Cookbooks

I remember the first cookbook I owned.  It came to me compliments of Santa Claus when I was 9 - it was the Sesame Street Cookbook and I immediatly began to cook from it.  Since then I have accumilated over 100 more.  I read them cover to cover like a new book from a favorite author.  I hop into bed with them much to my husbands chagrin.  I am inspired by what I see.  I don't so much follow recipes to cook, just use them as inspiration (unless baking due to the science of it all).  Many are like old friends. ...more

Holiday baking

I don't know what it is about the holidays but they make me want to bake. This can be problematic because I don't particularly like to eat sweets. Well, it was more problematic when I worked at home and lived alone. Now both the fake husband and I can see the fruits of my labours off to our respective offices. What I make each year generally changes with two exceptions - I must make Denise's mint sugar cookies and I must make chocolate peanut butter balls.I'm debating whether or not to make plum pudding this year....more
