Just a Taste Turns 4!

Just a Taste Turns 4

Four years ago this month, I launched Just a Taste as a way to catalog and share my family’s recipes. Now, 288 posts, 2,584 comments, 30 newsletters and one book later, the blog has transformed from a casual hobby into a career (and a serious caloric love affair). It has been an absolute pleasure and joy to become a part of the expansive food blogging community, both online and in person, and I am so thankful for each and every one of you who visits the site and shares the content I create entirely out of my passion and love for food.

To celebrate the 4-year anniversary of Just a Taste, I’ve teamed up with KitchenAid, who has generously offered to give one lucky reader a 5-quart stand mixer (color of your choice!). Some of my earliest childhood memories revolve around my mom’s giant white stand mixer, which has churned out countless batches of Monster Cookies and cupcakes over the past two decades.
