I am a simple home maker who loves to cook and experiment with whatever there is in my pantry.
For me, a recipe is only a theme, with which any intelligent cook can play with every time. Cooking is my way of de-stressing from my daily life and this blog is only a extension of my passion for it. I started the blog initially with the intention of just saving all my successful recipes in one place but now it has become more of an encouragement to do better and challenge myself to outdo my capabilities.
Now you may wonder, why this name for the blog? It is not very complicated but simply because I love to cook for my husband the most, who is a Captain in the Merchant Navy and hence the name- The Captain's Kitchenette! He is my biggest support behind starting this blog.
The reason behind learning the different techniques in the Culinary Art and trying to make the many recipes I find online and cook books, goes back to my childhood days. My mom would whip up so many different things and I was quite awed by what all you can make just my mixing up several things that she would pull out from her pantry. I would help her out as a child and slowly the interest to create different flavours grew in me even without my knowledge. When I found out I was pregnant with my son, I was suddenly in such a hurry to learn easy cooking and baking, so that I too may make everything that my mom made for us.
I hope with all your love and support, I will be more encouraged to learn, create and someday master the art of cooking and my new found passion, Food Photography. Speaking of mastering, I am suddenly reminded that both these fields are so vast that it may take me several years to get anywhere close to it, but I will try nevertheless. Please feel free to drop in your feedback on the recipes as comments and do join the blog in the followers section if you liked being a part of my journey so far. You can also mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with queries, suggestions or even if you want me try a new recipe.
Happy Cooking and looking forward to hearing from all of you!
