Hi Everybody ,


Welcome to Carpe Diem Spicy Eats ,

Wondering why this blog …well it helps…to have a list always ready.
Am sure you would agree to it !  This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me.

Carpe diem is translated from the Latin as 'seize the day'.  So enjoy everyday in your life in giving your best. Cook at home and eat healthy food and stay fit.Keep smiling and be happy.

Cooking is real fun and trying out stuff for your family is absolute pleasure .
I have been enjoying so far,thanks to my parents and my mom-in-law from whom I have tried to learn the skills.


I feel a recipe is only a theme, which an intelligent cook can play each time with a variation. 
~ Madam Benoit

These words rightly say cooking is an art and blending various spices in cooking is each individual cooks style.Eating is a sacred act.It satisfies,brings us joy and nourishes all at the same time.Connect yourself and Enjoy your cooking while experimenting with various combinations to get that right, unique taste for your loved ones .Give it "your " added personal  touch to each dish you prepare with love.Shower your family with all the love and care as you cook for them.
