My mom gave each of us a hand-written book of her recipes. I received her wonderful gift at the time of my wedding. She titled mine Mum’s Yummy Cookbook. And graciously provided me with an apt title for my site!

It is amazing how much of our life experiences & memories are based on food? One distinct memory that pervaded school & college life for me and my siblings was of toting a lunch box along. I remember having a different item in my lunch ´dabba´ each day of the week. However, it did not stop me from envying my bench-mate who had hot lunch delivered to her. So one fine day my mother arranged for that service and boy, was I thrilled!

Having attained ´Mom´ status myself, I realize the effort my mother put, into conceiving and preparing our meals. For my part, I know I have neither the time nor the patience to jot down my recipes for my kids. I have instead chosen to combine my experience in the software industry with my love for cooking and give them the gift of this website.

I credit my mother’s passion for cooking as my foundation for a keen interest in the culinary arts. This website is a testament to her delicious creations!
