In this interview, Jolly talks about her inspirations, achievements and more…
My family inspired a lot to start this food blog(especially my mom) She is my biggest mentor or what you call “Guru”.
Cooking has always been my passion. I have taken most of my simple recipes that I use in my kitchen and shared it to my blog. I have also learnt from my family and shared them too.
This blog really means a lot to me, and it has helped me a lot in gaining confidence. I have tried different varieties of cuisines and written them down to get to where I am today! I really never expected it to come this far or even be successful at all! During these years of journey, I have faced many situations- happiness, sadness, facing the ugly people but always learned a new lesson.
Beyond cooking I love photography — food, ingredients,nature. I am a person who love to capture beautiful things which are going around in life. It is either sunset, flowers, clouds, moon, sky… Actually whatever I find interesting in my daily routine, I capture them into my eyes and save on my phone…You can check it on my Instagram account.
