Welcome to my blog! My name is Nisha.
My passions include cooking, baking, traveling, and watching hours of the Food Network. I'm originally from Jersey City, NJ, and I love exploring the various facets of New York City where I enjoy a variety of cuisines and learn about different cultures. Being of Indian origin, I moved to the United States at a young age where I learned to appreciate all cultures.
Now, I live in sunny Southern California with my husband. Yes, I moved for love, and you can read all about my favorite love story here (part 1 & part 2). Moving across the country was hard, but it was the best decision of my life. New York City will always have my heart, but California is slowly growing on me. 😊
The year 2020 brought me my greatest blessing of all - my baby boy, Krish. He's the sweetest, happiest, funniest little boy, and I'm having so much fun with him. Motherhood is challenging, but I'm slowly figuring it out.
Why did I start this blog?
After being 25 pounds overweight and successfully having lost all of it, I am now at my feel great weight. Eating healthy isn't always easy, however my objective is to make mostly healthy-ish and delicious recipes without compromising taste and texture. Although you'll find me snacking on a samosa here and there, overall I believe in mindful eating. You will find a lot of seasonal content on here as I love eating real, wholesome foods that nourish the body, and of course the occasional cheat meals. All things in moderation.
On my blog, you'll find a little bit of everything. My specialty is Indian Fusion recipes, and Healthyish recipes, but I also share lots of Indian Vegetarian Recipes, Healthy Indian Recipes, Eggless Desserts, and some Mexican, Italian, and Asian cuisines.
What do I do for a living?
I have a Bachelors degree in Computer Science and have worked in Corporate America for many, many years. I enjoyed it while it lasted. After having my baby, I decided to go full-time on my blog and explore other opportunities. I'm still figuring things out and I'm not sure where I'll end up on this journey. I still love the tech world and sometimes miss it.
Blogging is such a great outlet for me to release my thoughts, ideas, and recipes to the world. I hope you will join me on this soul-searching journey through my love for food, fashion, and travel.
