“People who love to eat are always the best people.” – Julia Child . I believe in this completely. Eating healthy (Egg free and completely vegetarian) is a way of life at home and having a foodie spouse who loves to cook and create new dishes also helps :) Clean flavours, seasonal foods, sugar free / fat free /low cal recipes and processed-food free diets rule the roost at my kitchen :) My family gives me the best feedback to my cooking, and watching them tuck into a healthy plate gives me inspiration to cook on.. My food experiments are all recorded on my food blog www.sizzlingtastebuds.com
