Stephanie // Beyond ExpecTASTEtion


Stephanie is the blogger behind Beyond ExpecTASTEtions.

Describe your blog:

Beyond ExpecTASTEtions is a food and travel blog that features my own unique recipes, reviews of restaurants and food events, travel series, and food-related product and service reviews. I love to cook and experiment in the kitchen and try and share at least one creation every other week!

What is your favorite post you’ve written or your favorite series/type of post?

I LOVE to travel and write about my experiences while traveling. Every city has it’s own unique “flavor” and I love writing a series of posts about each new place I visit. If it’s possible to explore by walking even better, I truly believe that’s the best way to see a city and discover all the little shops you would have whizzed by in a cab.

What is something you wish you knew how to do related to blogging?

Web design/development. Besides purchasing a domain and a theme I’ve really built my whole site myself and there are so many little things to learn when it comes to back-end web development that I feel like I’m missing. But, I’m really enjoying learning as I go along!

Why did you start blogging?

The joy of writing.

What is your favorite social platform?

I love Twitter, but I’m getting more into Instagram because it really lends itself well to foodie photos!

What are a few of your favorite Chicago blogs?

The Ghost GuestEverything EricaChicago Food Girl, and Chicago Food Magazine.
