In the Beginning
Back in November 2011 five Aussie food bloggers – @HungryAustralia, @ledelicieux, @diningwithastud, @KCrusader and @84thand3rd – were chatting on Twitter about peanut butter and chocolate and pavlova. They decided to organise a pavlova blog hop where everyone cooked their own version of this quintessential Aussie dessert, and then linked-up to share the recipes and photos. With that, The Great Australian Pavlova Blog Hop was born.
But of course we couldn’t keep something this good to ourselves, and before we knew it the Sweet Adventures Blog Hop was off and running!
The other original founders have since stepped down as regular hostesses due to other commitments. You can view past hop themes and hostesses in the Adventure Archive list.
