I am a mother of a very energetic, funny, happy and loving boy. My husband travels all over the country for business, so when he is home, I like to spoil him with home cooked meals. I find absolute fulfillment and happiness in cooking for my family! Footnote: my interest in cooking actually started on a dare. After college, while working as a Human Genetics research associate at UCLA, a colleague discovered that I have never cooked anything in my life! This person challenged me to cook. I accepted the challenge, reminding them that if I can carry out scientific experiments, I should be able to follow recipes, right?! Well, I have been cooking since and I am forever thankful for that very moment!
