He cannot go to bed if there are dirty dishes in the sink. Meanwhile, she loves any opportunity she has to take a quick nap. Together, they run Dads That Fail. This site originally started as an outlet for him to document his cooking failures. However, he realized that he has an acute case of writer’s block. She hopped on and saved the day! Today, this blog is a mix of her keto recipes, topics of mutual interest and just another creative way for them to showcase their love for each other 🙂
A little more about who we are…
I (Anne) write most of the content of the blog, while Srikanth (my husband) designed the actual blog itself. I grew up in rural East Tennessee, went to Harvard College and earned a degree in molecular and cellular biology, and came back to Tennessee for medical school, where I met Srikanth. I graduated from medical school in 2017 and am now a resident in radiation oncology in Nashville, TN.
Srikanth grew up in India, majored in mechanical engineering and came to the United States for his masters in industrial and operations engineering.
We married in 2015 and had a son in 2018. Our lives are busy, but that is how we like it!
Why do we blog?
Srikanth wanted to start a blog about his humorous exploits as a father, hence the title dadsthatfail.com. However, he quickly learned that while he could happily spend hours playing with fonts, layouts, and fancy photography, he couldn’t pour words onto a page so easily. He enlisted my help.
I had been looking for a way to communicate my reasoning for following the keto way of life to a broad audience, and I jumped at the opportunity to make content for him to post. I hope our blog will become a good resource for people looking to follow a keto way of life, with both recipes and educational articles.
My recipes are informed with my upbringing in east Tennessee by my mid-western mother (I cook a lot of comfort food), with the occasional inspiration from my husband’s upbringing in India. The educational articles I write with cited scientific literature are from my point of view as a physician in residency in radiation oncology with a background in basic science research.
Why do I love the ketogenic diet?
It has transformed my body, and I believe it could help many people manage their weight while eating delicious food. I’ll write a future article about my lifelong struggle with weight and how the ketogenic way of eating is the easiest solution for me to finally be a healthy weight while eating food I love.
Academically, I believe the keto way of eating might have a role in the treatment of patients with cancer. I’m hoping to investigate various questions in clinical trials with the ketogenic diet. In the meantime, I’m making as much information as possible readily available (and digestible) to people interested in the ketogenic diet.
