My passions in life...baking, cooking, nature, art, photography. I believe in 'Doing Food From Scratch'; it must taste as good as it looks, and be healthy too. I blog from India, where my biggest challenge is the non-availability of baking ingredients. Join me in my adventures as I wriggle my way through the kitchen! My current obsession is baking with fruit. I enjoy food styling, food photography, recipe development and cookbook reviews.
