Greetings! Hope you are enjoying a great summer. Here is what I have been up to lately:
Farmer’s Market is my playground during summer and fall weekends. I love the vibrant fresh vegetables, fruits, flowers that farmers so enthusiastically bring to us in their trucks for bargain prices. I feel so happy to talk to the farmers and enjoy buying farm fresh vegetables, herbs, and flowers. To me, farmers look like so divine when they bring the nutrient-rich, fresh produce harvested from their farms.
When I read the “Food Section” of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel dated June 6, 2012, I was saddened and surprised to see what “Lousy Cooks: Class of 2012” were quoted as saying.
I am thankful that so many of you took the time to send me feedback about the first three episodes of my MPTV series titled, “Healthful Indian Flavors with Alamelu”. I hope you are enjoying the cooking shows on MPTV. I want to let you know that I have prepared many of the dishes from my shows for kids in middle schools. I found their response to be one of excitement and enjoyment in trying the flavorful foods. Cooking is love and is very nurturing. As Pensey says, “Love people, cook them tasty food”!
