Welcome to Mommy Its Yummy!

For those who are struggling with the experiment called “cooking”, it will be a nightmare to prepare even simple dishes. That was my experience nearly 7 years back and still i am facing that nightmare some times. Keeping all others, who are facing the same problem as mine, I thought of creating and dedicating this website for all amateur home cooks, who aspire to cook well, and impress their loved ones. For me, my best judge is my son. If he likes something then he will smile and finish off the plate in a jiffy. It it is the vice versa, then the first response will be “eeeeeeewwwwwwwww”. My score will automatically come down.

For everyone, the main thing is the “passion” that you should have towards cooking. Some find it quite tough while for others it is as simple as drinking water. For me, it is still a “tough” one, especially when it comes to preparing a simple “sambar”. If you are on the same boat, come lets sail together and reach the shore successfully.

Most of the dishes in this website are tried by me, my friends and my family members. Right from a simple coconut rice till Chicken Biriyani, everything will be here, and that is what I am planning to do too! This website will be helpful for preparing everyday meals too. Search through our recipe index and find out that recipe that you need to try!

If you feel, one of your recipes should take a part in this website, please don’t hesitate to send it to me. I will certainly try it out and post it here. After all, it is a joint venture, and come on ladies, let us celebrate cooking. Three cheers to all of you!!!
