Hi and welcome!!! My name is Swetha Sivakumar, I live in Austin, TX with my husband, 2 daughters and a wonderful, old, grumpy dog Lulu. I am originally from Chennai, India. I came to the US for my Masters degree and settled here since then. I graduated from The Ohio State University and have worked in several manufacturing plants throughout my career.
I started this website in November 2016 and have enjoyed working on it since.
Motivation for this blog:
My dad died from diabetic complications many years ago. He loved life and good food, was a great cook and had an eye for culinary excellence. He is the inspiration for my blog.
Goal #1: Make food research easy and accessible to everyone. Food labels are not hard to decipher, it just takes practice, that’s all. Let me help you by sharing what I have learnt so far. Let me also introduce you to some good food innovations happening (not everything is terrible about store bought food). We have much to be excited about!!
Goal #2: Make the science of cooking easy and accessible to everyone. I don’t know about y’all; but the moment I started viewing cooking through the lens of science, it has become much more easy for me. Plus I am able to step up my game because now I am no longer recipe-dependent.
Goal #3: Make healthy recipes. Yes, I know it is fashionable to make drool-worthy, rich food in food blogs. But, I just cannot make all those dishes, and then worry about my children’s, husband’s or my health after making it. I would rather just stick to making healthy food and make them well. I document those recipes for many of you who think similarly.
