Hi, I'm Anjali
Cooking has been my passion since childhood.
After getting married and being a busy mom of twin kids, when finally my kids went off to study, I found this blog as a creative outlet.
There are so many recipes and stories related to those recipes.
Today, when I get to blog about them, share the stories associated with each and every recipe, it feels so good.
From trying new cuisines to adapting to newer ways of cooking keeping the nutritional needs and dietary needs in mind, it's all a journey that I so wanted to document and share with everyone.
Today doing that every day makes me feel so glad.
Making new recipes everyday, blogging about them, learning Photography techniques, and Food Styling, I really felt like I found a community in this blogging world. Since then, it has been so an amazing journey...!
I started this as a hobby but soon realized that this was reaching to more audience than I ever could have imagines.
Then began the journey of Recipe Magik, where I was working right from dawn to dusk, creating recipes, blogging, social media marketing, photography and so on!
My Journey as a food photographer
When I started this blog, I took the worst photos! I used my iphone to photograph some of my recipes 🙈.
Seriously, those close knit overhead shots were so bad. I still feel embarrassed about those.
But they are still on the blog as a memory! But I soon realized I need to up my game to compete with other bloggers
Then I started using my Canon200dMarkii, using better lights, stand, and of course props. And it has helped me a lot to shoot better photos of my food.
Hi, we are Surup and Srirup. We joined this blog to help Mom share her recipes. And today we handle the technical aspect of this business, besides developing recipes from time to time, managing the SEO, to technical support to Website Designs to User Experience, its all us.
She is the constant source of positivity and happiness in our lives and helps us share that positivity through our recipes with y'all. Not to mention, the one who's always below the kitchen table, while we are cooking!
How RECIPE MAGIK was started
A lot of you might wonder why the Name "Recipe Magik"!
Well, for me The kitchen has been a place of Magic. Since childhood, I used to love my Mom talking about recipes, discussing kitchen tricks with my grandma, and others. I loved those stories, where they would go, "Oh! There's an easy trick which I use for this one..." 🙂
And I loved it so much. I never made notes of those but I loved hearing them. When I was a teenager, I automatically took over the kitchen.
From helping Mom in everyday cooking to baking out Cakes and Brownies once in a while, which my Dad used to love and rave about 🙂
Finally, after my marriage, I learned more recipes from books, magazines, and online. And that was an experience on its own.
Dishing out recipes from minimal ingredients, budgeting my recipes, baking cakes in an Instant Pot for the kids to making innovative lunch boxes every day! But also so much fun.
I learned so many recipes from my MIL. She was an expert cook and her recipes were to die for. Learning from her, the skills and techniques made me realize that cooking is not just a daily affair. It's a whole mood in itself. It's a journey, which I love to live every day.
I love to wake up, hit the kitchen, and get started with brewing my coffee, bake my muffins, get the toast and eggs ready!
And how magically, the aroma of food, wakes everyone up around the house. Even I feel refreshed and excited to start my day. For me, food is life. However, mood you're in food is always the solution for it!
Hence, I thought of the name - Recipe Magik. Why the "K" and not "C". Well, I tried looking for Recipe Magic, but it was already taken, so I thought, of going with magik with a "K". Also, I thought, when it comes to magic, your logic fails you right, and here its all about the magic of recipes, which will make a boring day a special one!
Food for me is not just recipes. It's so much more than that. It's a whole mood in itself. From joyful to comforting to holidays to festivals, its so so so much fun!
Isn't it strange that you realize how capable you are only after you have done the work!
From helping the kids get on with their life to learning about Photography, Food Styling Techniques, Recipes, and Videography, this blog showcases the amazing culinary journey of mine. 😇
Take your time, look around my blog, enjoy the ambiance, and most importantly try these delectable recipes! 😊😊😊
