A Change Is On the Horizon…

New Blog Design

If ya can’t tell, the changes have already been made!

I gave y’all some hints yesterday that, when it came to my blog, I was really unhappy with the way things were going. As I was writing up posts and previewing them before they were published, I’d cringe at the blog design. It was great for when I first started about two and a half years ago, but it just wasn’t doing me any favors.

Actually I felt like it was holding me back.

I know when I visit blogs that don’t look very professional, I almost immediately leave. Its like putting on my seat belt; I do it without even thinking. Shoot, we all do it. That’s just how it goes down nowadays in this very busy internet savvy generation we live in.

I felt that was exactly what people were probably doing when they came to this site, and I wanted to do everything in my power to make y’all stay.  Plus, I didn’t feel as if the old design was doing my photos any justice either.  Changes were definitely in order.

Gluten Free Drunken Grape and Goat Cheese Galette-4

I made you something special today. Actually, I made us something special two days ago because the hubs and I wanted something sorta sweet to snack on before we drove to Raleigh for our cousin’s “Yellow Submarine” themed 3rd birthday party.  Because, you know, we couldn’t be sure that a 3rd birthday party would be…

Gluten-Free Black Eyed Pea Burgers with a Sweet Chili Pepper Chutney-2

I can’t even begin to express my excitement over these burgers, y’all. They are seriously one of my all time favorite recipes to date. I want to marry these burgers and have, like, 10 thousand of their babies and then carry those babies around on my back in a papoose. These black-eyed pea burgers are…

Blueberry Miami Vice Cocktail

All hail the Miami Vice. And, no, I’m not talking about Don Johnson and his super smokin’ all white ensemble and his fancy feathered hair. The Miami Vice I’m speaking of is the super sweet strawberry daiquiri and delectably dreamy piña colada combo that you’ve probably had if you’ve ever been on a cruise, snorkeling in…

White Chocolate Carrot Cake Larabar Bites

White-Chocolate-Carrot-Cake-Larabar-Bites-5

I’m not sure whether to call these dessert or breakfast? I tend to have a bowl stashed in my fridge at all times so I can just grab one or five anytime the hankering hits so I guess, technically, they could be called bressert, snunch, lupper, deakfast, or my midnight denack. Either way, they are…
