I started my website almost a decade ago, it was a custom site that a friend created for me. A year later he added a blog functionality since lots of friends and colleagues kept asking me for recipes. After a few years I moved from that custom platform to SquareSpace. I loved SS! It was beautiful, easy to manage, easy to use, but not very food blog friendly. Over the past couple of years I’ve been thinking about migrating to WordPress and finally after the Food Bloggers of Canada Conference in October 2016 I decided that it was time. Last few months I spent working with Kristy from Peppercorn Creative on my new baby. (On a separate note, check out Kristy’s site, she just published an awesome cookbook!)
So, what does it mean for you, my readers? You still get my easy and family-friendly recipes, but you also get a lot more. Finally, each recipe will have a recipe card that will be easy to print; I will go through all my recipes in the next few weeks and update them. Also, each recipe now has suggestions for other related recipes that I have on the site, making it easier for you to find something you like. My homepage has a few sections for recipe groups such as vegetables, brunch, chocolate. I will keep these updated seasonly to make the site current.
There are still some quirks and issues that I have to work out. I also have to learn how to use WordPress but I’m sure it’ll all get better in the next little while.
Let me know if there is anything you’d like to see on my new site or if you encounter any issues.
