My old blog started off simple enough. I love to bake and I wanted to share my recipes that I concocted/adapted/cried over with the greater world. I started off with just WordPress.com and my iPhone and the love and support of my husband’s stomach. Thus, The Catalyst: Cupcakes was born, because it all started with a love for cupcakes! That went on for well over a year and naturally as both my baking skills and my husband’s love of photography has evolved, so has our ideas about the direction of our blog. I’ll always love my old blog (which now permanently redirects here) for the motivation it gave me to keep baking and cooking and trying new recipes, both sweet and savory. But as I was saying, we have evolved to a point now where we deemed it necessary to change gears a little bit, both in blog design (getting off of WordPress.com) and blog direction. While I will continue to bake and cook and my husband will eat and take pictures (usually while gesturing wildly and complaining about the light) we decided to combine both of our blogs into one. He canned his photo blog a while back and we felt he could contribute to the blog by posting recipes of his own as well as other things that are food related (or that spark his interest and aren’t too-far off topic, he says).
Thus, Sugar & Snapshots began in earnest after the first of this year. Frank wrestled with boiling a blog down to its essentials and making a good understated layout that focuses on the food and the recipes. I think he did a great job :)
We are very excited to get going with this new blog just as Spring is in full swing here and we will soon have fresh seasonal ingredients to cook with (and photograph)! So feel free to kick the tires and sub to the new RSS feed and stalk us on Pinterest! We’re excited to see where this all leads to!
