Hi, my name is Robin and I’m so excited & happy that you stopped by my little slice of blogosphere. I hope that you can take a few moments to check things out & gain some inspiration from my recipes that I’m cooking up today.
A little background on me… I’m married to my best friend and the man of my dreams for the past 15 years. Bill and I have two wonderful daughters that keep life very busy. We have two cats and one black lab – all rescued animals. I’m also a stay at home mom who rarely stays at home.
Thankfully, I love to workout as much as I love to eat! Keeps me in check. I’m not a crazy calorie counter, dieter etc. I love to eat good food and I work out hard to keep myself in balance. We try to eat as organic as possible. I shop local farm stands and markets to buy local produce and dairy. I love weightlifting, yoga, pilates and running. In fact, my husband and I ran our first marathon almost two years ago and we’re currently training for our second one right now. Life is hectic but we embrace the craziness & live life to the fullest.
I have a BS in Business with a specialization in Marketing. My husband and I met when I began working at a telecommunications company. When he decided to take a job out west in California, I stopped working to stay at home with my first daughter. His career has taken us back from the west to the east coast, where we are both from. We have settled back in Pennsylvania and love it here.
I’m an Italian girl who grew up watching and eating whatever my grandmother & aunt cooked. My passion for food grew as I got older. I understood that food was more than just a vehicle to fueling the body – it was a way to connect with loved ones. I am addicted to food. Reading recipes, creating, cooking and of course, eating! I love it all. I enjoy cooking for my family and friends. It’s simply a way for me to share my love with each of them. Plain and simple.
My cooking, in my opinion, is quite simple. I don’t have formal culinary training. What I know is from my incredible grandmother and aunts and what I learned along the way from trial and error. I believe that when you cook with love, it comes through in the food and I know that people can sense that and of course, taste it as well.
In life you must be passionate about what you do, otherwise, there is no sense in doing it.
