Hi, this is Robin, a Rhode Island food blogger, avid gardener and single mom to my sweet special needs daughter.
I grew up on a small Rhode Island farm, where I learned gardening and scratch cooking from my mom. As an adult, I worked in restaurants for 20 years, before having my daughter. About a decade ago, I decided to share my longstanding passion for developing recipes here on this blog.
The majority of my recipes are easy family friendly dishes. The emphasis of my recipe catalog is healthy dishes. I do go astray pretty regularly though, since I enjoy making desserts and cute holiday treats. I bartended for several years, so cocktails are also something I enjoy sharing here.
We live in a Victorian Era fixer-upper, so if I am not stirring a pot or chasing my daughter, I most likely have a paint brush or rake in my hand. I cover some of the DIY home and gardening projects I get involved in here as well.
My daughter likes to sample the recipes I create and hang out with her best pals are our two rescue kittens, Kiki & Frisky. She has a diagnosis of autism. Despite her communication challenges, she is a charmer, and lights up a room with her infectious smile. She truly is my Sunshine.
