Hello there !! Welcome to Simple Fresh n Yum, my little place on the internet for many things yummy. Thank you for being here and wanting to know more about me.
I am Yamini and I am the author, recipe maker and photographer behind this blog.
I am originally from a state in the southern part of India called Andhra Pradesh. I was born, brought up and graduated in Information technology from there and worked as a software engineer for a few years before moving to the US with my husband. Fast forward 11 years, now we are a family of four with two happy n strong girls. I realized my growing passion for cooking when I got a long break in my career and later turned into a full time mom by choice.
I love every aspect of food, from shopping for fresh groceries to cooking, planning meals, eating, watching cooking videos just for the fun of it , developing new recipes, giving my own twist to many of our family's favorites, seeing the glow on my family’s faces for their favorite foods… the list might go on and on( dish washing may be not so much 🙂 but hey, am not complaining ). Having a hubby who is a big foodie and even bigger food critic helps further to add to my excitement :-). Cooking for my family and friends is one of the things that constantly excites me over the years.
I believe many of the best cooks in the world come from home kitchens. I don’t have a professional experience in cooking but I have a lot of self taught, family taught, friends taught experiences which gave me many valuable lessons in cooking. I am continuously improving my cooking skills, passionate about learning new dishes, perfecting my old favorites and I can’t wait to share my .02 cents with you.
What kind of recipes can you find here on Simple Fresh n Yum?
I like to call myself a cook from an Indian origin in a global kitchen. As a family, we love Indian food but being foodies, we love to explore and experiment with many of our favorites in other cuisines. Here you will find tons of Indian recipes along with many recipes from other cuisines like Mexican, Italian, Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, Mediterranean and so on that we love to eat.
Why the name Simple Fresh n Yum?
As a mom of two young kids I understand the value n lack of time and importance of eating healthy in today’s world. So I will try to simplify n healthify ( not sure if there is even such a word but feels right to say it) the recipes with fresh ingredients as much as possible without compromising on taste. I believe anyone can make great dishes with just the right instructions and cooking healthy food at home is actually very easy if you have little planning. That’s where I can help you. All my recipes will have very detailed instructions, tips and tricks, FAQs for the recipe with detailed step by step photos to help you make the dish yummylicious.
