Welcome to the Adventurous Palate Program!

Adventurous Palate Program

In an effort to get us all to clear out our pantries, push our culinary limits, and try new things, I’ve created the Adventurous Palate Program (APP)! Basically, we’ll all work on one new recipe at a time. We’ll each publish a post about our attempts, and I’ll create a giant link-up for everyone involved!

This is a great opportunity to refine our cooking skills, meet new bloggers, and draw in blog traffic.


In a nutshell, I’m going to start this program on the honor system. If you sign up below and link to your blog, you’re saying you want to play!

How it works:

Each month, I’ll post a new ingredient or dish that we all create in our own way. You can use any recipe you find that fits the niche, and the more creative, the better!

I’ll set up a linky party on the 25th of each month that allows each of us to share a specific link and picture of our recipes on our blogs. You’ll have a week to enter your post, and that’s it! Simply make the recipe, post on your blog, and share on the appropriate post right here on The Aliso Kitchen (more specifics to come regarding this).

To register, please sign up using this subscription form AND share your blog information in the blog hop below (scroll down).

Questions & Answers

Q: How do you decide which ingredient or dish to use?

A: This will be decided in poll results by those who sign up for the APP email list. If you don’t sign up, you don’t get to vote! It’s super easy.

Q: Do I have to participate every month?

A: Nope! Pick and choose which months work for you. Maybe some months, the ingredient is too expensive or hard-to-find. Maybe in others, you don’t like the concept or have made it a million times. It’s totally up to you, but if you sign up here, I’d like you to participate for at least one month.

Q: Do I get a free product to use?

A: No. Unfortunately, that would cost me way too much money. Perhaps in the future we will have some sponsors or samples to test out, but not at the time being.

I will, however, provide links to premium quality products. All of these will be linked to my own affiliate accounts, which means any purchases will provide revenue used to support The Aliso Kitchen. You’re absolutely not required to buy or use these products; they are simply suggestions!

Q: How can I learn more about sponsoring this program or this blog?

A: For complete information, please visit my media kit and stats pages. I update each regularly, and am happy to answer any specific questions or requests through info@thealisokitchen.com.

You can access all of this information through the Press tab heading above, too! :)

Q: What’s the best way to share this program with others?

There are so many ways to share this program! You can share the link on your social media profiles, write up a blog post featuring the icons below, or sharing the button (to be released).

Q: Do I have to have a blog to participate?

A: Absolutely not! I want to get everyone moving in the kitchen, which includes non-bloggers. Instead, you are more than welcome to post pictures and experiences on The Aliso Kitchen’s Facebook Page!

Did you know it’s free to blog? Consider signing up on Blogger or WordPress.com to share your thoughts for free!

Q: Do I have to pay to participate in the Adventurous Palate Program?

A: The APP is 100% free! If you’d like to support The Aliso Kitchen in any way, feel free to make purchases through advertising links, sponsor the blog, or follow us on social media!

Q: I’m having technical problems. How can I get help?

A: Please email info@thealisokitchen.com with any questions or concerns right away! I will do my best to respond as quickly as possible!
