About Me

I can start by saying im a busy mum but then aren’t all mums. I have a small family which consists of my daughter Mishka who is four and super hyper and husband Sudhir who is a perfectionist (God save me πŸ˜€). I cook not because its a passion or a hobby. I cook to feed us, The Sonis.

We all often say no one can cook like our mums. Now that I have a bit more time cooking for my little family I often call up my mum to ask how she cooks a particular dish. By the time my daughter starts cooking for her own kids I will have kicked the bucket by then. I then decided to create this blog for my daughter for when shes older and where she can look up her favourite “mum cooks the best” recipes.

Most of the recipes on my blog will be my simple everday Fijian and Indian home cooked meals. It’s what I have learnt growing up over the years from my mum, my sister, my brother, my sisters-in-law and mother-in-law. I use a lot of short cuts to save time and energy so that I can have plenty of rest and quality time with my daughter.

So after much encouragement and blessings from my dearest hubby I decided to give this blog a shot. Hope you enjoy my food and do let me know how it turns out for you.

Hugs 😘

Can you let me know if you would like to participate?– Aiswarya.

  10. Hi, Sanjana Soni, It was very nice of you to visit my fb page. I went into yours too but count not figure out where the LIKE button so I think your page could be private. I discovered your blog last night and loved it. That post of the vegetables (though I don’t really know what veggie it is) looks very yummy and special.
    Happy Mother’s Day.
    Kind regards, Jess the little Borneo girl.
