Hello to the world! Welcome to my blog!
Hi, I am Divya, a big big foodie and I absolutely love love LOVE to cook. For me cooking is a therapeutic exercise, that helps me de-stress!
There is nothing better than the appreciation of your food. Its the best reward one can ask for, when the people you cook for, love what you present to them!
My mother has been my greatest inspiration. even though she is a working mother, she would always put up such beautiful dishes for the family all the time. She introduced us to many cuisines, and yes I can proudly say, I have inherited her flair for cooking. My grandfather owned a Bakery so yes I think my love for baking comes from him. Sadly I never got the chance to learn the art of professional baking from him cause he left us before I could learn anything from him! Although he used to absolutely love the simple sponges I use to bake as a child!
I have been cooking ever since I was in school, & I remember my first cake was made when I was still in 8th standard. My cooking ever since has evolved (atleast I think so), and today I can cook most of the world cuisines! Be it Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Lebanese, Thai, or The classic Indian dishes right to the traditional Himachali Cuisine of my Motherland!The dishes that I make are generally very easy with simple methods and ingredients, and as a vegetarian the dishes on this blog are all without egg or any kind animal meat!
Apart from cooking I have always loved to paint and do all kinds of ‘artsy’ things. I learned the art of painting for some years, and after that I have filled the homes of my aunts and grandmother with my paintings. Here is some of my work…
As I love to cook, I absolutely love to entertain small gatherings of family & friends. As most of my friends keep asking me to text them recipes of some dish or the other, I have decided to blog the recipes for the dishes that I create or cook.
The name for this blog came to me in my sleep one night. Yum’e’licious…Now you might ask what is Yum’e’licious?? ….Anything that is Truly Delicious and makes you say YUMM when you bite into it is Yum’e’licious! Anything that makes your taste buds dance and your hands move to grab more….is Yum’e’licious…..So what is it that makes food Yum’e’licious? For me its the individuality of each dish, the spices…the herbs…the vegetables! The way a dish romances your palate is what makes it Yum’e’licious…
I share with you, some of the recipes that I stumbled upon, or some that I recreated by reminiscing a dish I had once tasted. Cooking is a rejuvenating exercise for me which I thoroughly enjoy. So here’s hoping you accompany me on this journey while I discover more flavors and some interesting dishes. Feel free to drop a request for any recipe below! If I have tried it I shall post it right-away. If not, well that gives me the opportunity to try something new! Till then Happy Cooking..
Eat Healthy…Stay Happy!
