I am Lavanya. just call me Lavi. I stay in chennai with my hubby & my sweet naughty 5 year old son. My native is Pondicherry, the most beautifull and the smallest compact city. I hail from a Agriculture family. i am a Telugu girl brought up in Tamil Nadu and in Pondicherry. Though we call our self vegetarians, we eat eggs;) so I am a Eggetarian!
How I Started my blog?
My foray into cooking had started when i was in my college. i love to cook bread upma, idli upma, maggi noodles(customized for my brother) and pizza. My brother loves to eat, whatever i cook for him. so it used to be fun, trying pani puri & different snacks for him when he comes back from school. After marriage, the cooking experience i had before did not help me. slowly i started to learn right from sambhar. i believe a good eater can be a good cook. i am definitely a good eater.
So when my son born in 2007, i was out of kitchen for 6 months, leaving it to my cook. after 6 months i had to cook. i was craving for ennai kathrikkai kuzhambu, and googled for it, landed on Mahanandi blog, tried the recipe and loved it. later i explored the blog and found many other food blogs, instantly i started one by giving a name " Home Cook Receipes". From then its a wonderful blog journey. i recently got my own domain and now my blog is "Home Cooks Recipe".
Experience in blogging:
The blog was started to share what i knew, slowly i started to learn and try new recipes across states and countries to blog. when i get comments from those who tried and liked my recipe, i feel happy & more responsible. now i am taking much care in writing the recipe and the measurements. Blogging also helped me to come out of my depression, post partum blues. Friends i made with my blog are so kind and they are very much supportive to me.
Ennai Kathrikkai Kuzhambu
I developed my interest in food photography and i go mad in trying to click decent pictures. Blogging have completely changed me in one aspect. i am person with very less interest in shopping. but after starting blogging, i became the exact opposite. my hubby comments like this, "You may cross 7 oceans and go to the corner of the world, if you need any props for your blog". yes its true! I like myself to get involved here and forget my worries and share good food for you all..
