Confusion Cook is about creating recipes which we as a family enjoy & relish, which matches our tastes & preferences and which may have been inspired from a cuisine/ recipe and totally worked around to suit our sensibilities. Today in the day & age of technology, saving recipes in diaries or handing over to the younger generation doesn’t happen traditionally. So I decided to chronicle my mom’s most liked recipes here, I am also adding recipes which may be everyday but have special childhood connection or memories attached for me.
I have also included recipes which I came across and loved the taste, so I tried re-creating the same magic. I have given due credit to each & every recipe even when I started at point A in a recipe & reached a totally different Z with my own twists & style. Despite it, if any reader feels that I’ve missed out on giving credit somewhere, do point me out & I’ll be happy to correct it.
Since I’m a vegetarian, CC is all about vegetarian and eggless dishes. CC is lacto-vegetarian recipe /food blog. Confession time: I eat egg in baked goods but do not cook or bake with egg at home. Though yes I can eat Baked Goods – Cake, Cupcake, Muffin, Pastry, etc bought from a store or even at a party as long as it doesn’t smell ‘eggy’.
I’m a mother of 2 kids (the youngest being 10 months old), home-maker (which includes being a cook, PA, nurse, packer & mover, errand boy, etc – mind you all unpaid), buyer, merchandiser, friend, lover and when time permits Confusion Cook. I’ve studied Food, Basics of Food Preparation, Nutrition & Dietetics as part of B.Sc. (H.Sc.) and fashion buyer by profession.
This blog is helping me learn, and learn food photography. For me it is a big challenge as I’m not very creatively inclined, rather I am the type of person who would think why all this fuss attached to a photo. But I would be the first to accept & acknowledge that since when my first post, I’ve realized the importance of food presentation/ styling/ photography – You eat with your eyes first! So I’m taking baby steps to learning totally alien concept & field. I would try & take you through my journey as I take some constructive baby steps, at the moment it is a lot of floundering.
I keep updating this page as and when the blog grows or life changes. 🙂 Two most important wishes that have taken shape after almost 2 years of blogging is to have a kitchen & a storage area which gives me enough free space to work & second is to work on my food photography in every sense. Only when I will fulfill the 2, I will feel worthy of being here, I believe.
