As many of you know, there are some challenges I face when doing my video recipes for you all. First of all, these videos are taped at my home kitchen, and Alex (my husband) is responsible for many things. He is the videographer, editor and essentially does everything aside from developing the recipes and cooking. With that said, my first challenge is him. I need to be ready when Alex has time. Alex also gets busy with his own work. There are many times where we are ready to tape with all the preparations done for the recipe and just then my next door neighbor’s dog decides to bark. This dog is very loud so we often have to wait until he calms down. Then there are the other disturbances like someone mowing their lawn or trash pickup! This can be frustrating especially when I am so eager to share my recipes and dishes with you. When I get upset, Alex will make me a cup of hot chai and try and make me laugh. He always knows how to put a smile on my face. I also spend a lot of time with my four grandchildren as they are my priority. Despite all these obstacles and time constraints, we always manage to do the videos, all the while laughing and have a great time doing so! Until next time….

    Live the recipes and video demos.
    You are so calm and it makes the whole experience relaxing when we have some cooking anxieties. I came to know of your site via an American colleague who brought Rice Pilaf to our potluck from your website.

    Aunty Manjula, what a wonderful story! I love it when we use our sense of humour to put life’s follies in perspective! I’m going to laugh my way through the daily “disturbances” while trying to put my kids to bed! 😉 ps. please post a picture of Alex so that we can picture him in your stories…and cheers to all supportive husbands!

    Manjula, I hope all is okay. Your message is a bit upsetting. If you need a break that is completely understandable as I can see all the hard work you put into your videos. I love your recipes and your smiling face as you explain everything to the viewers. All the best to you and your husband.
