Extreme Blog Makeover and Other Random News

Don’t adjust your monitors you’re at the right blog. After a month of working on new headers and buttons, picking fonts and colors and reformatting recipes I am unveiling the new look.  I have to give a huge shout out to Ashton at Something Swanky. Her DIY Blog Design Series was invaluable during this process. If you’re reading this through email or a reader you’ll need to click through to see the new look.

There are a few kinks to work out of course. I don’t have all the drop down menus ready and I still need to format a few more recipes but if I waited for everything to be perfect it would never be finished.

In other news I am going to be reworking my Menu Planning Basics series and will be launching that with all new printables and new information sometime this fall.

I completely forgot to write a menu for this week. I guess I was still in vacation mode. I spent most of last week playing Chutes and Ladders, Cootie, Uno, and dinosaurs and blogging was the last thing on my mind. I did a lot of cooking as well but most of the food was devoured before I could snap a picture of it. Guess that means I’ll just have to make the recipes again.

I’ll be wrapping up the Favorite Kitchen Tools series in the next couple of weeks and I have a fun new feature replacing it starting in July.

I’ll be continuing on with the Secret Recipe Club and the Crazy Cooking Challenge. I have the recipes I’m making for both picked out and I have a feeling they are going to be amazing.
