Hello! Thank you for stopping by
My name is Maria – recipe developer, writer and photographer behind this blog. This is my outlet to share all the lip-smacking creations that I create in my kitchen.
I am a wife and mother of two amazing kids, Sophia and Sylvester. I have no significant memory of when my love for cooking began. As a young child, I was always curious about how every dish was prepared and asked for recipes of anything and everything I liked. I was more interested in flipping through cookbooks when the rest of my collegemates were glued to Mills and Boons. Born and raised in India, I moved to the US with my wonderful husband Victor. He loves to eat and I love to cook, perfect huh!
What would you find here? Mash ups of different foods or flavors. Every recipe that I create always has an inspiration, a light-bulb moment. Sometimes it is the ingredient or at times the technique or even the moment. I believe in cooking with fresh seasonal ingredients, so you might not find asparagus recipes in January. I’m the kind of person who gets excited to take a trip to the farmers market and you might find me admiring a perfect sweet potato for hours on end. Ok, may that might be a bit of exaggeration, but you get the idea. I have no formal training in baking or cooking. My field of education is in Mathematics and Statistics. But, this is where I belong!
Why the name kitchenathoskins? To be honest, we were brainstorming ideas for a blog name and almost every name already existed. Guess, I’m entering the world of blogging a little too late. As always, better late than never! I’ve always loved the unique name of our street, Hoskins Lane. Hence kitchen @ Hoskins.
I try to give accurate measurements and methods for each and every recipe. But, if you find any errors or find hard to follow any step, just shoot me a comment and I’ll be happy to assist right away.
All content and pictures that are found in the blog are my own labor of love. You can certainly post my pictures or recipe in your blog as long as you link it back to me. I will certainly appreciate it!
