Hi guys! I’m Rikki, an American ex-pat living in Dubai.  My husband, Rakesh, is from Dubai, and after we got married in the USA back in July 2010, I moved here too.  I came with only 4 suitcases if you can believe that!  We’ve been making our home a dream come true ever since.  In March 2013, we had our first child, Sophia Colette, the most amazing blessing and inspiration in our lives.  I’m a stay-at-home mama, and between juggling her and my husband, there’s not much time on my hands.

I love cooking and baking and it was hard for me not to have all the products and brands that I love from the US.  I will say that Dubai has quite its share of international brands, though, and most everything I need can be found here.  Rarely am I completely stumped without a substitute, but when I am, I put on a brave face and try to find an appropriate substitution.  This blog is just a way for me to share what’s going on in my life, and how I’ve adjusted to living outside my comfort zone.  I hope you enjoy!
