52 Kitchen Adventures

Happy Friday! We are ready to kick today off with our flash featured blogger winner, 52 Kitchen Adventures.

Hi, I’m Stephanie – a California girl who loves to bake (but not cook)! I started 52 Kitchen Adventures in 2010 as a challenge to try an unusual ingredient once a week for a year and make myself cook more. After the year was over, the food blog became a creative outlet for this baker to fill with beautiful, mouth-watering desserts. Now my mission is to simplify baking from scratch for the home cook. Come by and I’ll show you how to easily make something to satisfy your sweet tooth!

  7. Stephanie-

    I’m so happy to have discovered your blog! I too just finished planning a fall wedding and am happy to be back in the swing of normal life and blogging! It’s amazing how much the whole planning a wedding thing (you know…that small small feat, NOT) can consume you! Ha! I look forward to learning more about you as I follow your blog!

    • It takes so much of your energy, not to mention time and effort! It was a wonderful experience but I’m glad it’s behind me for that reason. I’m off to check out your blog now…

  8. Happy SITS day, although I’m a little late. Love your blog, love everything! If i ever baked I would definitely try these out. You’re doing a great job!

    • Thank you so much Heidi! I love your most recent post about why being healthy is over-rated. Everyone really does need to listen to their bodies more and figure out what exactly works for them.

  9. Happy SITS day!

    • Thanks Meredith! I love your most recent post about why you’ll never be a food blogger. There’s a lot of truth in there! ;)

  11. Yay, a fellow California blogger! I am excited to have discovered your blog and look forward to reading your posts and trying some of your recipes :)

    • Hi Alice! I just stopped by your blog and I love it – I’m always on the lookout for healthy eating & fitness tips to balance out all of my desserts. We live really close too – I’m up in Sacramento.

  15. Happy SITS day! Your blog is going to be good for my tastebuds but bad for my waistline!

    • Alison, it’s not great for the waistline, but I’m a firm believer in enjoying life and practicing moderation. It gets tough when I bake up a batch of cupcakes though!

  16. Happy SITS day!

  17. Love this idea for a blog! Good luck with your journey, Stephanie. Sounds delicious!

    • Thanks Rebecca! I’m going through everyone’s blogs who commented here, so I’ll visit yours very soon! Have a great weekend :)

  28. Stephanie,
    This is super cool. I am curious about two things: (1) do you have a favorite recipe? and (2) what was the biggest thing you learned after doing this?

    Can’t wait to explore your blog. Congrats on your SITS day.

    • Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment, Kim! You saw my faves from last year. It’s hard to pick a favorite overall. From my 52 adventures, I’d say some of the unusual fruits were my favorites, like dragon fruit: http://www.52kitchenadventures.com/2010/09/19/week-38-dragon-fruit/

      I learned that getting out of your comfort zone is challenging but worth it and you should try everything at least once! You never know if you’ll like it otherwise.

  29. What a fun and unique challenge? I’d be too scared but I love food so we have that in common. :-)

    • It was more fun than scary, but I know what you mean! If you love food, I’m pretty sure you’ll love my blog (unless you hate dessert) ;)

  30. Stephanie, your blog design is absolutely gorgeous!

  31. Happy SITS day!
