About

wp-1464171216745.jpegAromas and Flavors trigger so many memories of wonderful days gone by, Childhood memories of Grandma’s kitchen, the school canteen, hanging out with college friends or that family barbecue outing. Certain aromas like the wafting smell of a cake baking in the oven, mom’s home cooking, onions frying , chicken on the grill create an instant craving for them.  While Aroma is related to the sense of smell, flavor is the combination of a food items’ smell and taste. Aroma plays an important role in the flavor of a dish so much so by altering the Aroma, we can alter its flavor while keeping the taste intact.

Beautiful Aromas floating from a kitchen reflects a happy home. I always believe that the way to a person’s heart is through his or her stomach. So if you are out to impress your family or friends and make a special place in their hearts, cooking a beautiful dish is a sure shot way to it.

Balance the Aromas and Flavors in your cooking. It will go a long way in balancing your life with the Fragrance of love and Taste of happiness.

Each of the dishes included in this blog have been tried out personally in my kitchen . Go ahead and give ’em a try.

All the Best………

    I love the name of your blog, as I genuinely believe half of the joy in food is the sweet memories the smells and tastes bring back, looking forward to following and hope to learn more about you from the recipes you post 🙂

  4. Hi at first glance your blog looks “delish”! I can’t wait to delve into it a little further. I’m new to the blog world but not so new to cooking/eating world. I’m from the south and absolutely love southern cooking. -Gumbo, pralines, shrimp po-boys, etc. – perhaps you will follow me at Runaway Nuns and Leprechauns where I randomly share favorite recipes.
    ~ oh and thanks for sharing!

  5. Hi, at first glance your blog looks “delish”! We’re anxious to delve in a bit further. We’re new to the world of blogging but old to the cooking/eating world. We live on the gulf coast and can often be found stirring up a pot of seafood gumbo or perhaps a batch of homemade pralines. Perhaps you will follow us at Runaway Nuns and Leprechauns where we randomly share recipes and tips on cooking some of our favorite southern dishes.

        Of course you can feel free to ask. WordPress has a very supportive community. There is a community pool on WordPress. You can go there and leave your comment and link. Spend some time on other blogs which share the same interests as yours and like their posts and comment on them. You can build a rapport with them. And invite them to your blog. Start following some interesting blogs. You can also spend some time on freshly pressed and like other good posts. WordPress also conducts blogging classes regularly. You can follow them.They will be of great help. You can join some online parties . It does take some time but then it will be worth it.
