I had the great pleasuring of interviewing one of my favorite bloggers, Tessa Arias from Handle the Heat. Her blog is home to some of the most mouthwatering looking desserts- from Banana Split Cupcakes to No-Bake S’mores Cheesecakes. Tessa’s passion for baking is evident- unlike a lot of bloggers, Tessa began when she was still in High School- another reason for why she’s an inspiration. In the interview, she shared some of her blogging tips, newest releases (including Food Blog Academy, site dedicated to helping food bloggers start and grow), how she started her blog and some other interesting experiences she’s had as a blogger.

And If there’s one thing everyone enjoys, it’s a chocolate chip cookie. Simple, effective and addictive if done right. Tessa knows her chocolate chip cookies- she recently released a whole handbook with step-by-step instructions on how to craft the perfect version – for many awesome recipes, visit her site, Handle The Heat.

Tessa also has an awesome Youtube channel on which she uploads video tutorials. If you’ve been watching my videos, last Christmas, we participated in a collaboration also featuring my friends Rachel, from KawaiiSweetWorld, Gemma from Bigger Bolder Baking and Angela from The Squishy Monster.
