Welcome to Freshly Photographed ~ my new food blog!
I am Robin and I come from a long line of fabulous home cooks and bakers. From my great grandmother to my grandmother to my mom, these remarkable women have passed down three generations of home culinary knowledge. And I … became a photographer.
So much for carrying on the family traditions.
While my mom spent her life with a mixer in one hand, I held tightly onto a camera in mine. Passion and drive run deep in our family.
I do spend a lot of time in the kitchen. With a husband, five kids, a son-in-law and various other family members … this is a given.
I strive to live up to the effortless, no fear attitudes of these fine women before me. You see, I LOVE to cook and bake. I especially love to chop and whisk. And I love to photograph my creations. That is my passion, after all.
And it hit me … maybe I should combine my passion with my culinary heritage.
And thus, the blog Freshly Photographed is born
I am inspired by those who can take a variety of ingredients, put them together and transform them into something delicious. I watched my mother and grandmother do this flawlessly. They made it look easy … they made it look magical.
So, I’m getting back to my culinary roots. I’m searching deep within for that cooking gene that had to have been passed on to me by the women in my family. And while I no longer have them here to direct me or explain how much a ‘pinch’ of something really is … I do have stories, handwritten recipes and an endless supply of loving memories in the kitchen to carry me through.
I told my oldest son I was starting a food blog. His response to me, “Grandma would be proud.”
Touches the heart, know what I mean.
