Hello and Welcome!!!
Welcome to Tickling Palates! I’m Radhika, wife to a loving husband and a mother of 2 teenage boys aged 15 and 13.
I live in Chennai, India and my hometown is Kumbakonam, known as the Land of Temples.
As I had a full time working mother, I think I started learning to cook right from an early age say 11 or 12 in an effort to help her. Food has always been a source of sustenance to me till I had kids on my own.
I believe that once you have kids, the entire perspective on life and food changes. At least it did for me. I started looking out for healthy and easy recipes to cook food to make meal times more interesting for them. As of now the elder one happens to be “THE” foodie in the family and is my best critic. The youngest one is the hardest to please, a picky eater who has slowly started to eat just now. On the whole, I like and enjoy cooking for my family.
I started “Tickling Palates” to keep track of my cooking adventures in the kitchen and to share my passion with like minded foodies around the world. I love how it has grown now. All the recipes in the blog are tried and tested by all of us at home and I share it with all of you in such a way that, its fail proof when you follow the steps exactly even if you are a beginner in cooking.
I’m game for trying out any recipe as long as it happens to be vegetarian as I happen to be one too. In this space you will find vegetarian an vegan recipes with an exception to some egg based recipes for the sake of my children.
Baking has become my new found love ever since I got my Microwave oven with the convection mode. I concentrate more on learning the techniques of the science called baking.
I love to hear from you all even if its not regarding cooking. Please feel free to contact me at [email protected] with any of your questions, comments, concerns, or if you have a recipe that you would like to be featured here. I can also be reached on Facebook, Google+, and Twitter.
Hope you all get to spend a great time in my space and enjoy the recipe collection. Thank you for stopping by.
