Hi, there! I’m Robin, founder of CaliGirl Cooking and busy mama who loves teaching other moms how to turn their little ones into healthy, adventurous eaters. I started this blog as a way to share my favorite recipes and my love for cooking with those close to me. Now, years later, it’s turned into my passion, my livelihood and a huge resource for other busy moms like me!
When I became a mom, I knew I wanted my little one to grow up enjoying all the same nutritious foods as I do, but I also knew it wasn’t going to come easy. I threw myself into researching everything I could about feeding little ones, paired it with the psychology and culinary backgrounds I already had, and am proud to say that my toddler – although not perfect – continues to surprise me on the daily with what she’s willing to eat.
It took me a long time to get to where I am today in my healthy, balanced relationship with food, and my one wish for other moms (and their kiddos) is that I can speed up that process for them. That’s why I love sharing all of the tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way here with you.
If I can make just a few mamas’ lives easier when it comes to feeding their little ones, my days will be made. Raising children is both the most rewarding and most challenging experience, and my goal is to help lessen the challenges and increase the rewards.
Mamas, if you constantly feel overwhelmed, out of sorts and like there are not enough hours in the day, I feel you! And I’m here for you.
My hope for CaliGirl Cooking is to not only empower all you mamas to turn your little ones into healthy, adventurous eaters, but to inspire you to get into the kitchen more, in general, and whip up something delicious, even when you’re short on time. I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy sharing it with you. I love connecting with all of you so please be sure to drop a line and say hello! XO
