How I started "Cooking Isn't Rocket Science"

Got inspired from my sister in law who started a blog , out of her passion for cooking , this along with motivation from my friends and  a little of knowledge I received through my most preciously attained degree in food science, drove me to start a blog where food is not only enjoyed but also explored, I have tried not to exploit it though.
I think I am trying to escape the  guilt  feeling of being unproductive , anyways this keeps me happy.
I have to write about My Achachen (Dad) here...Am not sure if cooking and love for food comes with one's gene as my Dad was a lover of good food.He was the first person who inspired me to love food and cook with passion. He passed away 3 years ago after being diagnosed with Cancer and I had a life changing experience during those last days with him, while in his deathbed , his words wasn't clear he asked for some fish curry and Kanji (Rice porridge) and I served him fish without permission from his Doctors, few memories which never fades. 
With Gods Grace I am  married to a food lover too , a true food analyst. But I love serving food to those who enjoy it , love watching them eat and always happy to hear constructive criticisms which helps everyone to improve. And we are blessed with two daughters,

A 7 year old helper of mine who's another tough food analyst and a fuzzy eater and a 1 year old baby who keeps me engaged all day long. 
I was taught that MAN IS WHAT HE EATS , I believe it too 
so lets eat healthy and enjoy the good things that God has given us in this life.
