Blog Announcement



Some of you may or may not be aware that I have been working for a while on implementing some updates to this website. Unfortunately, I work very slowly because I am not the best with working with HTML but progress has been made and things are finally looking a bit more modern around here. First, I updated the template a couple months ago to brighten things up a bit. Then, I slowly started working on going back through my old posts and formulating a consistent tagging system because I was kind of all over the place when it came to keeping everything neat and tidy. Finally, and this is what I'm REALLY excited about, I updated the recipe index to a visual format where every single recipe that has ever been created on the blog can be not only quickly accessed but visible! I was so nervous about getting this to work and have to say that I'm very pleased with the results! So, please, check it out!

Just find the recipe index at the top of the page...



Select the category you want to view and click on the picture...


....and it will display all the recipes ever made under that label. It will even automatically add recipes as I make them, an awesome feature for a lazy blogger like me. Recipes are currently displayed in order of appearance on the blog. I haven't figured out how to alphabetize them. Any suggestions on how I would do that would be greatly appreciated.


Hopefully this will make it much more user-friendly to find past recipes! What do you think?

    1. I'm really quite terrible at it. I get all nervous before I work with it and ALWAYS make sure to back up my blog before I mess with it. And picture indexes are the best - I never looked through text only recipe indexes so I knew I had to fix that on my own blog!

  3. Perfect timing! If I can help it, I come to your blog for recipes before google. And after almost a dozen batches of your mall soft pretzels since the new year, we are progressing to bagels. Your index was sure handy! I hope you keep enjoying baking and posting your recipes! Last night I made the banana chocolate snack cake for church function, and I have enough bananas in the freezer, I might make another one. Love, love, love your good finds!

    1. Thank you so much for the note, Tori! I really appreciate it! Those pretzels are the best...but you're going to LOVE the bagels. Have some lox and cream cheese on hand for one of the best breakfasts ever. I'm so glad I finally got around to figuring out a more efficient way to find recipes!

    2. I did a half batch of the bagels - delicious and a lot easier than I expected! I had some homemade neufatchel, which has been great on them, not to mention the green chiles and garlic - a winning combination.
