All About Us!

Small History :)

           There was a life earlier for me and my hubby - 10 hours of work, 3 hours of travel, 6 hours of sleep, 5 hours of extra extra. Then came our little bundle of joy, who turned my world upside down. it was not easy for me to take that change, but what  keeps me going is the feel she gives me every time that "I am the world for someone who is calling me Amma".
           In about 6 months after her birth we moved to the USA. Different people, culture and way of life. This was the time I started cooking. I love cooking for my hubby for these reasons "he is always happy with whatever I serve, he never insists for anything specific, never complains, never troubles". When you have a hubby like that, you will always want to treat him with good food :). This was how my cooking interest improved.

Now About me & My Inspiration,

            I am Divya Shivaraman. Born in Kerala, Brought up in Chennai. A big fan of street foods, die hard fan of Pani poori. Other than cooking, my hobby list also includes painting and photography. Blog was never an idea for me. When my best friend and blogger Radhika Vasanth of Food For 7 Stages of Life spoke about her blog and photography interest - That simply inspired me. I am so thankful to her because she made me blog today. 

About my Critic & Cooking Guru's,

             From searching a name for my blog, design, presentation, also selecting which recipe to post - my hubby does help me. He is the best critic I have. His support is another strength that helps me run my blog. I am very thankful to him. 
          "Where are my recipes from?" Many recipes are the ones I learnt from my Mom, Grand mom and MIL. It includes my trials, recipes from my friends and colleagues. There are bookmarked recipes from Magazines and inspired one's from blogs that I note in my recipe book but I take the method and input my ideas to twist these recipes. I look up to thank the author's of the blog in my post too. 

About Dishing with Divya,

             Dishing with Divya is a food blog that features recipes after trial and error sessions in my kitchen. I started this blog with the intention of sharing the recipes with others which I tried personally. I post my recipes only if its approved by my food critic - My hubby! also includes his colleagues(They taste his lunch - howz that!). I encourage you to adjust the ingredients according to your taste when you try the recipes from my blog and please do not forget to post your feedback.
