The lessons you learn the hard way are always the ones that stick…
All along, and ever since I was first exposed to commercial food styling shoots, it really hit me to think that how smooth my transition would have been had there been someone to guide me through the nitty gritty of food styling.
Back then, I was fairly new to the commercial world of food styling and had no mentor whom I could observe or assist. I had to jump off the cliff and learn how to make wings on the way down 🙂

Summer vacations were always welcomed, when extended families and cousins would all come over to our large joint family house for holidays in Bhilwara, Rajasthan.
I was immersed in a flurry of vivid memory the moment I stepped inside that large kitchen area at a photo shoot recently. The heady smell of sweets wafting out of the kitchen instantly transported me back into time, to the family weddings conducted at my granny’s place.
Long forgotten memories of my childhood came flooding back as I watched traditional Halwais work in the giant assembly line at Bombay Sweets in Thanjavur during a food photo-shoot last week.

“A couple in love is like a pair of scissors….two useless pieces of metal, until they are inextricably connected at the core so that they can move together as one and accomplish great things.” ~ Jack Canfield
KK and I have known each other for more than two decades. Marriage is just a reason, but lifelong friendship is the most precious gift that we received on 22nd January 1996.

“I have to mention about a person who played an important role in this project. I didn’t know how to use social media network or to even send a mail. She is the one who opened my Gmail account and started my facebook page called DSOFT. She clicked pictures of the clothes we stitched and uploaded on the page.”
“Sanjeeta, my tech-guru, please stand up where ever you are” Saranya looked at me from the stage and smiled.
I shyly stood and waved to the audience. I could see my son smiling in disbelief after hearing her mom referred as ‘tech-guru’ 🙂
Another fruitful year comes to an end. Well, you don’t need a new year to make a change, all you need is a new morning.
The sky went from dark to almost black, followed by delicate drops of rain. Soon, the rain drops grew bigger & heavier and turned into furious storm.
It rained and rained and rained…till the city of Chennai and its suburbs were submerged under water. The devastation all across the city is far beyond the words to describe.
The evening on 1st of December was when the nightmare started for everyone who were out for work. Torrential rains, power cut and neck deep water in most of the areas made the city traffic cripple and brought the entire city to standstill.

Sometimes simple things in life can bring in windfall gains and mine came through the wonderful vegetable Zucchini I bought this weekend. Yes, this small veggie got transformed into three different delectable dishes for my family last Sunday. A bread, a brownie and a few pancakes. Thought of posting all together but then restrained myself doing the same, as the post will become too long and will be difficult to categorize all. So here are the two Zucchini delights for you to indulge in…a bread and a brownie. Don’t miss out on the easy & quick breakfast of Zucchini savory pancakes.
The plain Zucchini bread with no other flavors and very less of sugar tasted very good and was liked by me and my hubby. The chocolate in the brownies marred the flavors and taste of the veggie but anyway became a hit with my kids 🙂
