right from the day we are born - its all about food. But have you ever given it a thought as to how much eating can affect everything - Health, Moods, Parties, Weddings (yes), Relationships (now you're thinking), Business Opportunities (now we're talking!).
If that's going too far... How about that day when you ate that pack of cookies but ended up loathing it because it just did not have enough chocolate chips? Or complained that the vegetable gravy your aunt made just for you with all her love was far too "not-your-type"? And, never went to a restaurant just because you dint like one item that you tried on their menu a decade ago?
Its easy to call someone a foodie. Besides its very debatable as to whether or not being a foodie is good or bad. No, we are not talking about people who devour food just for the sake of eating. But under the superficial layer of a person who is a food lover, lies a genuine interest to relish every bite. To savour, to indulge, to absorb every ion of taste.
Then again, its a very hard task to be a foodie in this generation. Whether you are a compulsive eater or an intuitive one, finally what matters is relishing every morsel. Also, with globalization bringing cuisines from across the world together right at your next door restaurant, picking an item to eat is just as hard as trying to look up the web for the right information. Seen yourself in this situation? Caught you, dint I? And you thought you dint belong to the "Foodie" category. Think again....its a little secret hidden in all of us...the secret life of a foodie!

Ok its been a while since I got here... a year to be precise! Any guesses what kept me away? Oh yeah, motherhood and all its glory. Life can be hectic with a baby around, but nevertheless it did not leave me longing to get back to do what I like most.. Write!
Credits credits - I have to mention it was my friend's sister who inspired me to get back to blogging. With two babies and a toddler, hats off to her for actually making time to sit and write about everything happening in her life.
And then there's my little son, Samvit, who will turn six months in just a few days. So if you find me missing for a while, you know why! Ill probably be just folding the warm clothes out of the dryer or stirring the simmering gravy or changing a soiled diaper or mopping the house or...
So here I am, back again.. to keep you occupied,bored,intrigued,bugged and everything in between!
