Hello, my name is Dewi, I am
45 46 yrs old, Originally from Bali - Indonesia, reside in one of the beautiful part of Silicon Valley - USA. Proudly married to a South African born - Jewish man, we have a wonderful, affectionate, energetic and absolutely hilarious son. We also have 2 1 demanding, but adorable Golden Retriever s, Elmo and Lara. Sadly, my oldest Golden Retriever, Elmo, passed away in November 2009
Elra's cooking was created after my sister Citra and her family had to move overseas in summer 2007. Luckily, I still have another sister that live not too far from me. Otherwise my life would be unbearably measurable!
Both of my sisters are very enthusiastic about cooking and always willing to try a new recipes. They used to phoned or e-mail me and asked for recipes. It was quite daunting to write recipes back and forth to both of them. This is how I've decided to write recipes in a cooking blog. Seeing all of the photographs at elra's s cooking, elras's baking as well as garden at nina place will encourage them to cook even more and also will remind them how beautiful relationship we have as a family.
To my sister Citra and her family: hope all of these recipes will bring memory back to CA where we were always get together, eating and cooking (although I did most of the cooking!!!)
To my sister manik: Keep cooking, because your cooking is getting much.....much.... better!
Cooking, baking, and gardening is part of my daily routine, and I love my routine as its give me such uncomplicated joy!
