I can still remember my first weeks of blogging like it was yesterday. I quickly realized just how lonely blogging could be. I longed to connect with local bloggers. I wanted to ask for advice, and collaborate with others doing what I was doing. It seemed that every time I mentioned it around the Tampa Bay area, I heard the same thing over and over. Have you met Jaden from Steamy Kitchen? I ventured over to Jaden’s Blog and quickly fell in love with her style of writing and her recipes. I love that family is at the heart of blog. She immediately inspired me and I found that I couldn’t wait to get an email letting me know that she had written a new post.
At a local food bloggers conference last Spring, Jaden was one of the speakers and I listened attentively to every word. As I listened, what was going through my mind, was – Smart. Jaden is a very smart business woman and gave the food blogging community great advice that day. I enjoyed hearing how Jaden started Steamy Kitchen in 2007 and six years later, built herself an empire from her small blog that now employs her entire family. She currently has her own line of rice bran oil, branded woks, and a regular spot cooking on-air on Daytime.
Over the last couple of months, I have had the pleasure of getting to know Jaden and I am honored to call her a friend. She has given me great insight on blogging, business and brands. It is with great pleasure that I am featuring Steamy Kitchen’s Healthy Asian Favorites Around the Family Table for Sunday Supper this week. Twenty of our #SundaySupper Contributors have received Steamy Kitchen’s Healthy Asian Favorites Cookbook and are excited to share recipes from this cookbook. We have had so much fun oohing and aahing over the recipes and pictures in the Sunday Supper Movement forums and can’t wait to share them with you.
