My name is Asiya and welcome to my blog! I am a stay at home mom with 2 great boys living in Toronto....well actually the suburbs but I was born and raised in Toronto! I used to be an actuarial analyst in an insurance company. After I had my eldest son I decided my time was better spent staying at home and raising him. Now 7 years later I have 2 boys and my days are very busy with them. I have always loved baking but never had much interest in cooking. Since I became a stay at home mom making dinner was now my responsibility. I love trying new recipes. I've been blessed with a husband that loves to try new food and doesn't complain when things don't go well. I started this blog in January 2011 to document my recipes and help me to improve my cooking. I try to keep my recipes easy and healthy.
My family is from Hyderabad, India so you will find a lot of Indian recipes and other recipes with a little bit of Indian influence thrown in, which mostly means more chilli and garlic! My husband is Pakistani and that really has changed my cooking and opened up my eyes to the vast variety of Indian/Pakistani cuisine...not just the Hyderabadi food I grew up on (i.e. Khatti Daal, Shaami, Talawa Gosh, Kheema...) The recipes you find on my blog are what my family and I eat. So you will rarely find recipes that are loaded with butter and cream.
I also write a blog chronicling the crafts I do with my boys called Keepin' 2 Boys Busy. I would love for you to drop by and check it out!
