Me and my Creative Saga
How and why did I start this blog?
Welcome to Creative Saga, a food blog, for my love and passion for food and cooking.
I am a native of Tamil nadu but I have spent a good 25 years in Maharashtra, including a few years in Gujarat , Delhi and now Singapore. This is the reason for my love for all kinds of cuisines.
I was not a very keen cook in the beginning. It was just because i was left with no choice and i had to cook. Cooking was just not my cup of tea, I believed. But my initial days of boredom immediately after my marriage and in a foriegn country only with a few friends lead me to take cooking as a creative hobby. I actually cooked and enjoyed it too!!I developed a sudden liking for cooking and used to ask my friends and relatives for new recipes.I use to ask my grandmom for authentic tamil recipes leaving her puzzled!! And next, I wanted a space where I could store my precious recipes with the picture and share it with my family and friends .Thus the "Creative Saga" came into existence. But then I had a few readers who followed my blog regularly. Then the number of readers grew. People actually began trying my recipes and giving me feedback. That was a huge inspiration and encouragement. I still don't consider myself a great cook.I do make mistakes and have my own disasters in kitchen. I am still learning and the blog inspires me to do more. There is still so much to learn.
What is in Creative Saga??
Creative Saga is basically a collection of easy Indian recipes and a few international. Being a Tamilian, I have also included some Tamil recipes including some festival food too!! In the recent years , I also developed a liking for baking. And so some cakes,breads and cookies recipes for people who are new to baking.
There may be a few recipes of my own. But most of them are from my family,friends,blogger friends and other sites. I have given due credits to the blogger or site from where the recipe is taken.
Update - now for the past few months,I have been focusing on healthy, low fat, less calorie recipes. Most of the recipes are quick and easy.They consume very less of your time. I am also including eggless bakes, vegan,gluten free recipes every now and then.
