People call me Robin, Freckles, or the Red Menace. You can choose. I have red hair, freckles, and a menacing attitude. So I suppose all of the above are appropriate.
I am a Seattle real estate agent, but I’m also a freelance food writer and avid home cook in Seattle, Washington.
This site was born a couple of years ago when my boyfriend, who was enjoying the fruits of my culinary labors, suggested I start a blog. I had no idea what a blog was. In fact, I’d never seen one before that suggestion. However, it seemed like a good idea. I was tired of hoarding scraps of paper, sticky-notes, and computer printouts of recipes and ideas. In a sense, the blog was a way to go “green” or paperless.
It turned into so much more. I’ve met such lovely people who encourage me to write more, cook more, and explore more. Thank you for that. You certainly keep this thing running.
Many readers ask about the photos. I’m so glad you like them. Most of them are taken by my dear husband, Kirk. (We got married last year!) I often refer to Kirk as K out of pure laziness. Kirk is a professional photographer. I feel very lucky in this respect. He loves to document our meals and our lives. As a Seattle Wedding Photographer, he is also very talented at documenting special occasions. Give him a ring if you are interested. He would love to hear from you!
Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions or thoughts. I would love to hear from you! achowlife[at]gmail.com
