First on the First was a culinary journey through new experiences in the kitchen. Each month, we tackled a cooking or baking feat that was new to us, sharing the results with the world. Kate at Food Babbles and I loved not only taking our readers on the journey with us, but having other bloggers bake and cook along with us. It was a virtual cook-a-long!
We posted on the first of the month at noon EST. In that post, we also announced what the next month’s topic would be. Each participant chose how she would interpret the topic, which recipe she’d use, and how she’d adapt it to her tastes. Even if the assignment wasn’t entirely new, there was always a new way to make it so it would be something different for the participant. The sky was the limit!
We posted our last First on the First challenge on May 1, 2014. While it was a wonderful way to get outside our comfort zones in the kitchen, we decided it was time to move on to new projects.
