Welcome to my cooking site

About Me

I am Akila... Working Mother of two and author for this blog. As most of you people... I went to kitchen after marriage only. Before that, I know only to cook maggi and to do Tomato chutney, as it is my favorite. I brought two cookbooks by chef Dhamu along with me when I came Singapore first time. I used to call my Mom, Mil to try even a simple sambar. Morning I take bread and butter and for lunch, get yogurt outside and have curd rice with pickle. Even cooking the rice in cooker is a night mare for me. Those were the days I struggled hard. I hope even some of you might have these kind of experiences like me.

I asked one of my friend to give easy recipes and she gave some and asked me to check internet. That was the first time, I started searching for recipes in net and saw people posting recipes for beginners like me. That was the first time, I came to know about blogging. Slowly I started my interest in cooking. After a year, I started my own blog in wordpress, but could not continue it. Two years later, I started my own cooking blog and named as "Learing-to-cook" as I am still learning the different cuisines and experimenting the Eggless baking. 


The recipes in my blog are tried and tasted by me and my family members. I sometimes browse net for new recipes and try out. In such case, will definitely give the credit to the source recipe. Since I got some requests from viewers for step by step pictures, now a days, I post recipes with step by step methods and pictures of the recipe. I am planning to post the video of the recipes too.

Camera and Photography

In the early stages of blogging, I used Point n shoot camera to click the pictures and used picasa to edit them. Now bought the DSLR Canon EOS 600D and use the lens, 18-55mm which came along with the camera. I use light room version 4 to do the post processing of the pictures I clicked. I am not a professional food photographer or food stylist. I am still learning the food photography and trying to improve it day by day. Also I am trying to update my old photos with the new and decent photos.
