Hi !!

I am Smitha - the face behind this blog.Welcome to my Kitchen!! 

Basically I am an Engineer by profession (or should I say was), worked in the corporate world for few years. But now fully enjoying my role as wife, mom of 2 lovely kids, freelancer and this food blog. Life has been sweet. 

Smitha means "Smile" and thus the name of the blog "Cook with Smile" - All credits to my hubby dear for suggesting the name.

My mom is a good cook. I remember watching with her many cookery shows and tasting her new recipes. I was always fond of eating tasty food and may be this fondness, after marriage made me enjoy cooking. 

This blog is my journal, my space to pen down some food related memories. I have decided to explore vast and varied veg cuisines of India and beyond. And through this blog, I present you some very basic,simple, everyday recipes that I have grown up eating, to some very exotic-never heard of kind of recipe. In this journey, let us learn and grow as cook...Do try out the recipes n yes these recipes are full proof ones. I try in my kitchen atleast 3-5 times till get perfection n later post here.

Homemade food, created with love is the best way for a healthy, lifestyle.

 "You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces, just good food from fresh ingredients. " 

-Julia Child .
