Welcome to Food & Clicks

Hello! I’m Shruthi!!! a day dreamer and explorer by heart… passionate about cooking, photography & decor.

Where are you from?
I’m originally from South India – Hyderabad city, but I’ve been living in US (Cupertino (CA), Chicago (IL), Virginia) for the past 12 years.

What made you decide to start this blog?
I always enjoyed cooking food and entertaining people.Lot of people suggested me to start a blog, but didn’t know where to start and how. So I read couple of blogs and attended couple of blogging conferences and I figured it out to start my own blog.

Hot & Spicy Samosas

When did you start cooking?
I started cooking after I got married. I attempted sometimes before my wedding with my grandmom which turned out ok & sometimes pretty scary too ;) But after putting some love and definitely some inputs from hubby dear made me a good cook and I started loving it.

Who gets to taste everything?
My husband has been a great “guinea pig” for testing out all my experiments in the kitchen recipes – and sometimes my lovely colleagues (Chicago Washington DC). I can pretty much guarantee that all of the recipes you will find here are DELICIOUS and YUMMM!

When did you start Photography?
When I started my food blog, I had a basic camera but I always loved it and wanted to capture my food in every angle. Soon enough (after couple of years) I realized that the photos were quite shoddy and needed to capture the food just as beautifully as it is cooked. That’s where I got my new Nikon D5000, ever since I have been working on bettering my photographs.

what is Project 365?
It is a photo challenge involving people from all over the world posting one photo per day throughout the year. Some photographers choose themes and some go independent and totally random. I am planning to do mix of both. I will be shooting with my Nikon D5000 – 18-55mm, 55-200mm zoom, Fish Eye lenses and sometimes I use my Iphone. I like to keep my photographs natural but sometimes I like to edit them by using Picasa tool or Photoshop CS5. Not all my photos are “perfect”; the purpose is to make photography an everyday event and you can find them here

Where do you get your craftiness/Paintings from?
My Mom and grandmom! they both are incredibly creative! my mom’s paintings and grandmom’s embroidary works inspires me everyday to do something unique.Every detail is carefully considered to make sure it all comes together! All of my confidence in doing paintings or crafts comes from knowing I have a talented mom & grandmom!
If you are interested to view my paintings, please peek into my new decor blog My Colorful Jhopri.

I’d Love To Hear From You All!!!
