About Me

Welcome to “Cooking isn’t rocket science” –  I want to change this name but is completely novice in technology so for the time being let it be the same

This little space is maintained by Tara Paul


I grew up in a small town named Alappuzha in Kerala-  that’s the southern most state in  India. We moved to the United States 7 years ago , when we began our life here like migratory birds, nested in different places the first 2 years. But we are now settled temporarily in a  very beautiful place near Salt Lake City -Utah

How I started “Cooking Isn’t Rocket Science”

I am enthusiastic to try new recipes also interested in observing different culture and lifestyle. I learned that maintaining and sharing records in the digital world isn’t anyway easier than connecting the same with technology, so with the little of knowledge that I have in this fast phase technology world I also jumped into blogging.
I started this blog 5 years ago when I lost my Dad (Achachan), a time when I wanted to keep my mind occupied. Not sure if cooking and love for food comes with one’s gene as my Dad was a lover of good food,he was the first person who inspired me to love food. He passed away  just after a month when he was diagnosed with Cancer, the last few days with my dad was a life changing experience for me. 
Little about my Family 
Greatest blessings in life are to be shared when I write about myself, these are the few people in my life that makes me feel important. Am  married to a food lover , a true food analyst but I love serving food to those who enjoy it , love watching them eat and always happy to hear constructive criticisms which helps everyone to improve and we are blessed with two daughters.


Below is a picture of me wigth my  8 year old helper who’s a fuzzy eater and a 2 year old baby who loves to try everything. I earned my Masters in Dietetics and was taught that MAN IS WHAT HE EATS – for me this statement is very true 🙂 but I am like majority of human beings who tend to forget what was taught.

Thanks again for reading 🙂
