Welcome to My Fancy Pantry!
Let me introduce myself. My name is Shari and I reside in Rochester, Minnesota with my husband, Piyush, and our sons, Arjun & Rohan. We also have two (very) neurotic cats, Penny and Harry.
With the addition of Rohan to our family, I have (reluctantly) become a stay at home mom. Doing all sorts of mom things and drinking not nearly enough espresso on a daily basis.
Life has surely changed since I started this little blog!
Because of how much my life has changed, I decided to start a new blog– Spiced Up Mom
I’m not really sure what will become of My Fancy Pantry. There’s some good stuff on here. So for now, I’ve chosen not to actively update it. New recipes and updates will be found on my new blog, but I will post here, as well, when I post something “foodie.” So you won’t miss anything!
Before I met Piyush, I was a horrible cook. My idea of “fancy” was throwing a pound of ground meat in the slow-cooker along with a couple chopped potatoes. If I was feeling really adventurous, I’d maybe throw a carrot or two in as well. It’s true! My “crack-pot” creations were legendary! …and I don’t mean that in a good way.
Luckily for Piyush, that all changed. Once we were married, I started seeing food as a hobby instead of a chore–and that made all the difference.
I enjoy making, eating and sharing food with friends and family and introducing my (often) picky toddler to different flavors and cuisines.
I don’t discriminate (usually), but I do have a soft spot for a steaming cup of chai and a spicy Indian curry! I’ve also developed a newfound love for coffee–pretty sure that happened once Arjun hit the “terrible twos.” Uffda.
Aside from sharing what I’ve learned and what I’m cooking, I hope to also blog about our trips, life with a toddler and our adventures around India…
but it will mostly be about the food :)!
