I love to hear about dreams coming true, and about those that keep trying. I believe success comes when we try, try, try, and never give up. It sounds like the Robinson family is making great headway in living their dreams.
When Robbie Montgomery – one of the original back-up singers for 1960s soul duo sensation Ike and Tina Turner – toured with the band, she poured her creative gifts into her cooking as much as her singing. After the singing stopped, Robbie took her mother’s soul food recipes, passed down through generations, and created the empire known as “Sweetie Pie’s,” St. Louis’ iconic and wildly popular soul food restaurant run by Robbie and her dynamic family. With two successful locations, Miss Robbie is upping the ante and preparing to open a third restaurant with the help of her son and business partner, Tim. While Tim and his girlfriend, Jenae, also prepare for the birth of their first child – and their wedding – Miss Robbie, who has never been married, continues to look for love at the age of 71. Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s follows the loud, loving and still very musical Montgomery family as they struggle with the demands of expanding their family-owned business, one soulful dish at a time.
A great part of the Seven Steps is fun and laughter. I can see a lot of that happening in this TV series. The ups and downs of life, real life, is always great to see. I hope they learn and grow into all their dreams.
