Thanks for taking the time to chat with SIW. Tell us a little bit about yourself and your blog.

Rupal : A sweet Hello from the cow boy hat state of Texas. I am Rupal Patel, a vegetarian, an avid cook and a full time mother of 2 beautiful and cultured children(Shree & Pari). A blogger who loves to spoil my family and friends with my fond of cooking. Join me in the journey of my cooking spree where I share my experimented and few try out food compositions for your taste buds from my home to yours!

What makes your blog so unique and why should people read it?

Rupal : Born in a super foodie family. And that’s only one reason to became a food blogger :)  Yep, my recipes in my blog are dedicated to all my family members. Having a high quality blog is not enough. If your blog is like every other one out there, it will be difficult to stand out. I live in USA and here, sometime we can’t find the real Indian cuisine taste. I tried so hard to get that taste here in my food, and after some struggle, I found that taste in my kitchen. My recipes are basically fusions. Some recipes are also truly international and some are totally Indian. Most of recipes in my blog are inspired by Fusin Cuisine because “dil hai Hindustani”! My recipes are easy, jiffy and almost full of style, and that’s why people love my blog.

How often do you blog?

Rupal : Usually I post twice in a week.

What has been your most successful blog post to date and what was it about?

Rupal : Each and every post of my blog is very precious and lavish for me, but when talks about numbers than;

Above all I’m learning from so many other talented bloggers too, so it’s pretty hard to name all.

Can we really make a living by Blogging? If yes, how we can do that?

Rupal : If you are passionate about a subject and you have decent writing skills, blogging definitely could be alternative career path for you. The short answer is yes, it is possible to make living- a very good one, even-by writing online.

Rupal : I love to read about food and spices. My favorite books are, “The Spice Story Of India” and “The Flavor Bible”, and so many more.

What advice would you give to young women readers of SIW who want to follow a similar career path as you?

Rupal : It’s too early for me to give some advice to young women who want to follow food blogging or blogging but one thing I must share with you is that – Know your passion. Follow it. Dream it. Live it.
