Hi There! My name is Gurki and I am the founder of the blog This Girl’s Recipes. I am a foodie and love to try variety of food from all over the world, and recently started chronicling my food diaries.
I had a chance to read the book “Julie and Julia” by Julie Powell and could totally relate with Julie. I have a small kitchen, where experiments happen, mostly accidents and sometimes miracles. I say miracles because I am no expert at cooking, but whenever I prepare a dish that comes out to be delicious, my husband calls it a miracle 🙂
My son is my little helper in the kitchen and loves to be part of the creations we work together on.
Besides trying new recipes and cuisines from around the world, I love painting, skiing, hiking and reading fiction.
Purpose behind This Girl’s Recipes
When I tell my family and friends about my blog, first question I hear from them is, do you actually cook?
Well, I must tell you I am always expecting their surprised reaction to my cooking and recipe making. I never stepped in the kitchen back home. I never showed any interest in cooking whatsoever. This was the last thing in my mind while studying and working. During my student days, I used to get by making mac and cheese, noodles or burritos.
So what made me become a food blogger?
No particular reason. I have been writing down recipes in my recipe binder all these years. This one time my friend wanted to try my quinoa cake recipe we talked about earlier at a party.
It was hard to explain the instructions over the phone, so I decided to upload them on my free (at the time) blogging platform. She loved it and asked to share more. That was it! I decided to go with self hosting option and set up my blog. Sharing the recipes has been so much fun since then 🙂
What will you find on This Girls Recipes?
Being a vegetarian, all of my recipes are vegetarian. You will find breakfast, lunch, salad, appetizers and dinner recipes. I love to bake, toss salads and whip up ice creams.
