Sarita Gelner

Welcome to Ritzy Mom!

I am Sarita Gelner. I currently reside in St. Louis, MO with my first, only, and favorite husband, Grant! I also have the daily joy of being a stay at home Mom to our hilarious toddler girls and our adored rescue dog.

My Mother immigrated from Sri Lanka decades ago, and quickly became known for her authentic cuisine. She was even featured in a local St. Louis newspaper! You will see me cooking alongside of her when I was a toddler. See the top right of the newspaper clipping below for the curly haired sous chef! Cooking with my Mother has been a lifelong joy, and an activity that I know do with my own two girls.

This love of cooking with my girls became the basis for this blog. Ritzy Mom was created in August of 2017 after my Mom moved across the country. This blog began as a way for her to stay close without being in the same town. The name Ritzy Mom is a nickname that my family gave me as a joke, so it was only fitting that it became the name of this blog! My lifestyle blog is a way to share my experiences, the latest trends and things I enjoy, and all else that makes my Ritzy Mom life a beautiful compilation of love, adventure, laughter, food, and wine, lots of lovely wine!

Thank you for joining me!

Cheers and Enjoy!
