A little bit about Sarita:

I am Sarita Gelner, the creator of Ritzy Mom, a recipe blog featuring hundreds of unique and self developed recipes. I am a Sri Lankan- American baker, blogger, and cocktail maker! I currently reside in St. Louis, MO with my husband, sweet baby girls, and our adored rescue dog. I am a regular “TV Chef” on KSDK’s Show Me St. Louis.

This food blog combines my love of food, cocktails, humor, cooking on TV, and writing all into one fun hobby that I can’t get enough of!

So this was what I did over the Summer -@thegreatamericanbakingshow holiday edition. It airs over 4 weeks on @abcnetwork, starting December 12th at 8pm CST. Swipe for a solo pic where you can really see my enthusiasm, ha! . . . . . #gbbo #americanbakingshow #greatbritishbakingshow #tvshows #gabs #baking #britishbakingshow #bakers #foodshow #holidayseason #bloggerlife #stlouis #bakersgonnabake #bakingcompetition #baking #abc #abcshow #holidayshow
