About me..

Hello everyone!!

I’m Ramya. Welcome to my kitchen.
Cooking was something which i used to see my mom doing in her kitchen and i used to just watch her cook. But, somewhere along the way, i think i got obsessed with it. I started trying out different recipes either from a cookbook, from the Internet or i used to call up my mom asking her for her recipes.. Finally i ended up testing and experimenting with the ingredients. I got interest in Baking when i was in Germany as i had a baking oven to experiment with, but knew nothing about it as we hardly use a baking oven in India. I slowly began trying out all the baking recipes from the internet and things were actually working out great for me and i even had a lot of fun baking..

Apart From Cooking I Also Love Sketching, Reading And Lots And Lots Of Internet  Surfing (With Often Fights With My Hubby To Hog The Laptop). I Also Love To Do Adventure Sports And Last But Not The Least, I Love Traveling.

I was then into creating this blog, "The Cooks Collection". Thought of this name thinking that it would be a journal of my recipes and experiments.. Wanted to store and share my recipes somewhere and a blog was the place i found..

It gives so much of pleasure and happiness when people visit your blog and comment on your recipes.. Just a way to keep life going..
Thank you so much for being with me and wanting to know about me. Do visit my blog and looking forward for all your comments and questions..

Cheers and Have a great day!

Ramya Kiran

Hi! I love your blog. I found it looking for eggless baking recipes. I will be trying your scone recipe, though I will substitute gluten free flours for the flours, as I have Celiac Disease.

I love your blog template. I've wanted to change my blog template (I'm also a blogspot blogger) and would love to use the same template as you. Can you tell me where or how I can find it? Thank you so much. Please email me at birdwoman5151 AT yahoo DOT com. Thank you!

Dear Ramya, I like how you became inspired to start experimenting with cooking. I came from a traditional Greek home, and remember how I used to watch my mother cook, and her saying to me "pay attention because one day you will be cooking this!" I suppose I did not pay enough attention because when I got to college I was calling her up and asking her how she made my favorite rice and other greek dishes. She was more than happy to explain over the phone but I realized how important it was for her to pass on her recipes to me, so I could keep that tradition alive for my family. I thought I should share this with you because of how much fun you said you have baking and cooking. It is so rewarding! Thank you for sharing.
Cheers, Gaby
