Talking Greetings from Pakistan :)

Hi everyone
I am Maryam from Pakistan. Around three years back I had almost no interest in cooking till I got married to a food lover and then I learned to cook many different dishes. I like to try new things from around the world and I keep looking for new recipes all the time.
I started cooking the traditional Pakistani dishes for the family and soon found out that it gets really boring after a while.
I began searching for recipes online for different Italian, Chinese and continental dishes. What I found out was that most recipes for international dishes some times uses ingredients that are not available easily. So I add a little bit of my own ingredients to make the dish more flavorful and a bit spicy which is suited to the Indian / Pakistani palette. In Pakistan we tend to overcook meat and use a lot of spices so mostly Mexican, Chinese especially Sichuan food and Italian dishes with lots of Cayenne pepper is loved by my family.
I like cooking food and taking pictures so I hope I'll share a lot of fun food pictures and will enjoy these forums !!!
