About Me !!

Welcome to my blog . My name is Shailja , You can call me Shelly , which is one of many nicknames I have . I was born and raised in India and moved to USA in 2002 .

This blog is all about adventures with food in my kitchen . I believe that cooking should be fun and there should be flexibility with the recipes .I love eating , cooking & enjoy experimenting and trying out new recipes. Cooking and baking is a hobby that resulted in my blog Sweet & Savory By Shailja .

Food has always been an important part in my life . I was taught to cook by my mother at a young age . I helped her in kitchen chopping veggies & making salads etc . Cooking and entertaining friends is an inspiration from her who is a great host . Besides cooking and baking I am obsessed with canning too .

All the recipes on this site are personally tried , tested and tasted πŸ™‚ by me & my 2 boys in my kitchen .

Thanks for visiting my blog ,
