what is this?

all whisks and spoons

I’m Stephanie, and as you can see, I actually have many whisks and spoons.  They reside in a tin on my kitchen counter in Brooklyn, New York.

  1. You have a fabulous blog & your pictures are superb!

  2. Beautiful blog, stunning photographs and great recipes. I hope you have a wonderful time in Sydney! (I found you through the foodieblog)

  3. I love your blog and your pictures are amazing. I love photographing my food but yours honestly looks right out of Everyday Food. I’m jealous ha ha! I would love to know what you shoot with and your thoughts on food photogrpahy in general.

  4. Danielle–Thanks for the comment! I think I’m such an amateur with the camera (I could point out a few really talented bloggers)! I just use a point-and-shoot digital…a Nikon Coolpix S6. I take my food photos with no flash (just good sunlight, ideally) and using the close-up function. I’d love a full-on camera with lenses, etc, and maybe take a few classes to figure out how to use them!

    When I first started this blog, I was very self-conscious of my pictures, but now photographing my food is something that I really love doing (even if hubby thinks I’m nuts). I think food can be so stunning, and I love choosing angles and backgounds, props, etc.

  5. You have an amazing gift for photography. Thanks for sharing it.

  6. Stephanie..do you use a macro lens? My husband and I are looking into the Nikon D80 kit and weren’t sure if the macro lens was necessary to get those clear and crisp close-ups that you get! 🙂

  7. Laurie–I will send you an e-mail!

  8. Just want to say I like your style! Great photos. too I made cupcakes just like yours a few weeks back and was so excited to see you do the same thing. I also dedicated them to my memories of east coast summer soft serve. We called it the “swirl “cone in New England.

  9. hi there, just found your blog and love your desserts and photos, just gorgeous! I live in sydney and would one day love to live in or at least visit New York. You will have to share all your NYC secrets with me 😉

  10. Love love love your photos. It’s time for bed and your pictures have inspired me so much I want to start baking.

  11. What made you move to Sydney? I absolutely love your food photography…very professional!

  12. Hi Stephanie!

    I’m so jealous you’re living in Australia. I studied abroad there for a semester and absolutely loved it. I’m actually planning on going to graduate school in either Australia or New Zealand. Seems like everyone else has said it, but I love your pictures! They all make my mouth water:)

  13. Great blog Stephanie and I’m sure there are some folks over here who would happily send you PB for your stash…. Good day over there.

  14. hey steph, absolutely adore your pics + posts! just HAD to give you a shoutout. will be back for more *beams* i haven’t had my chocolate fix yet, but I’m on the hunt. lol.

  15. Are your whisks and spoons living inside a Bazzini nut can?? I LOVE their pistachios 🙂

  16. Steph, currently where do you live? I am in Melbourne, originally came from other country. 🙂

    • We moved back to New York City about a year ago…I need to change this page, I know.

      • Oh…is there any chance to come back to Australia? I was under impression that I have one good blogger friend there in Sydney. 🙂 😦

      • I hope we can one day!

  17. Hi Steph, I am another fan from Australia! I have bookmarked a number of recipes that I can’t wait to try.

  18. I wanted to say THANK YOU!! For your inspiration and your fabulous recipes!!


  19. Wow. I am blown away by your blog and your pictures. I really have never seen such consistently made, beautiful, perfect, sexy desserts. Do you ever mess up?!?! What kind of camera do you use? xoxo

    • Thanks, Anita! I use a Nikon Coolpix. It’s just a point-and-shoot, and it’s a few years old now, so I hope to upgrade someday soon!

      • Ok, so its not the camera, its YOU. Amazing stuff. Do you have a twitter?

  20. Hi Steph!
    I found your blog through a google search for “Beet Recipes” and I totally love it. I’m currently focusing recipes involving Beets over at my blog – do you mind if I link to you when I post this Sunday?
    I’d also want to link to your blog permanently on my blog roll if that’s okay.

    P.S. I use a Coolpix too. :))


  21. Your blog is adorable! Love the recipes and photos:)

  22. Hi Steph!

    I’m so glad I stumbled upon your blog! I spent the last 3-4 hours poring over your blog and finally got to the very first post! 🙂 Yes, they keep the eggs at room temperature here in Australia but back home in Malaysia, we store them both ways. No idea what this means.

    ❤ your photos too! 🙂

  31. Great blog. Makes me want to learn how to actually bake. It’s a work in progress in my kitchen. Also, on my scale. I just know that if I made a dozen cupcakes, I’d eat a dozen cupcakes the next day.

    I nominated you for a Liebster Blog Award if you’re interesting in participating. Info, rules and my own entry from my nomination are here:

  32. Stephanie,

    You have a beautiful blog. I saw on your responses that you use a point and shoot. You have a really good eye and your pictures look great. How long have you been blogging? I’ve been blogging for almost a year and I’ve used a Canon point and shoot the entire time. It has been challenging, but I’ve learned a lot about light.

  33. I didn’t realize someone already had, so I have nominated your blog for the Versatile Blogger Award. In any case, I posted a link to you!

  50. Hey! I really enjoyed reading your blog, so I’ve nominated you for the Blogger Recognition Award.


    For some this award nomination procedure maybe like sending chain letters like we did in elementary. You can simply ignore this post and decline it or you can embrace it as an opportunity to get in touch, maybe build a community and show fellow bloggers you like what they are doing.

    Greetings from Austria! Kate

  51. Do you actually bake without electric mixers using those spoons and whisks? I do!

  52. Even i am not into sweets and cakes i had to stop here ! I do bake for my girlfriend who loves cakes. I might convert if i see your posts! Amazing work and passion! You have another fan 🙂 Best wishes, Michael

  53. Fresh Apple Cake with Brown sugar Glaze – can this be made with Gluten Free flour? any changes to the recipe? thanks

    • Hi Lorraine. I’m not gluten-free so I’ve never baked it that way. If you have a reliable GF flour that you’re used to using, I’d give it a go. Sorry I can’t be more help!

  54. Hola Stephanie, te nomino para el Blogger Recognition Award 2018, creo que tu Blog es muy bueno y debes continuar con él, por favor lee mi nota en el siguiente link: https://probacocinar.wordpress.com/2018/08/23/blogger-recognition-award-2018/
