What is you take on organic food, is it a big deal for you?
Yes, i go for organic food whenever i find time.

Never find time to take breakfast now a days. Only lunch and dinner ok.
What inspired you to write a food blog?
After marriage i was very new to cooking and i always call my mother and ask for the ingredients and recipes and used to write what she says in a note book or paper. But it made me bore to try the same dishes everytime. So i started searching the net for any recipes and came across the blogs and also i want to save all my collections together. Like this i started the blog. Though i started a blog by 2007 itself, i could able to continue it. But again started a new one with a new look by 2010 and it is Learning to cook.
