Happiness is homemade :)
Everything is better on a full stomach. I cook when I am happy, tired, depressed, anxious, and it always makes my day better. And we always have people over, and it gives me plenty chances to keep trying out new recipes.
I cook because I love to eat. It's really as simple as that. Fortunately for me, I married a foodie (who happens to be a much much better cook than me). Fairly early in the marriage I realized the best way to avoid ego clashes about each other's cooking was to make things Karan had no expertise on. And thus my tryst with baking began. Today, I can't imagine a life without my oven, maida, butter and sugar :)
