I truly believe that cooking is a life skill and a simple, home-cooked meal brings people together.
Cooking at home doesn’t have to be complicated. “But don’t you share authentic Indian recipes on your blog?”, you may ask. Yes, I do.
I am here to bust the myth that Indian cooking is hard. Here, you will also find all sorts of foods– from healthy low-carb Keto recipes to comfort food and indulgent desserts to cocktails and mocktails.
ツ ✿ Hello and Namastey… I’m Shalini ツ ✿ and welcome to
I’m a passionate blogger, wife to a handsome soldier, and mom to a two-year-old Golden Retriever. When I’m not cooking up a storm, you can find me with a book in hand, sipping a cup of coffee (or Martinis, maybe?) and pampering Mufasa, my doggo.
I come from a family of fantastic cooks. I’m a self-taught/mom-taught/dad-taught/grandma-taught with no formal culinary training unless cooking a five-course meal for five to six people almost every week is considered one.
I’m here to share healthy, affordable, family-friendly, delectable recipes, all mastered in my kitchen.
About Something’s Cooking
I started blogging to record the recipes I tried in my kitchen. I was a newlywed who realized that her husband is a complete foodie, just like her. Furthermore, I was married to the Army family where food is an integral part of socializing. Oh, I knew then, I had to up my game.
