Working on the site…

I am going to be working on a special Thanksgiving Edition for tonight.

I need to make my grocery list, (using the Our Groceries App) And figured I will let you guys see what I am going to make, as well as the list for the day.

So far, I will be getting the Directions for Turkey from Butterball, where my husband and I learned to make a turkey that has not failed us in being awesome.  I am also going to be grabbing some well known other recipes.  Why?  Because I am not kidding you, the sites seemed to be overwhelmed on that day and take forever to load.

My menu will be published here, but the basics are: Turkey, Stuffing, Green Bean Casserole, Sweet Potato Casserole (an amazing recipe that I need to make 3-4 times the amount to make sure there are some left for me, and it reheats awesomely!) Homemade Gravy, Pumpkin Pie and a Cheese Ball.

If you can think of something before I publish the list of recipes, let me know and I will get it on the menu for you.  We probably have a lot of the recipes, just I haven’t had as much time online to work on them!

See you guys soon!

GINGERBREAD PUMPKIN MINI CHEESECAKES

Not as much today, but I will be getting the rest of the recipes from this page tomorrow.  For those of you looking for where these are in the Top menu, they are under Desserts and Cake.  Some of them will reappear on the Pie category, (the cheesecakes) but I wanted them under the cupcakes to make it easier to find.  Under Cakes is the regular cakes, then Cupcakes and then Icing.

I am still working on the pages, once I am done with those, I will go back for the recipes that had posts describing how to make and add the instructions into the recipes with the pictures to help those making them for the first time.  Once I can be online with the other ladies doing the food blog, this may end up going faster.

Thanks for joining us and I will see you guys tomorrow!

On Our Way!

I know it has been awhile, but we are working on this.  Actually, I am working to organize it to hand it back over to the ladies who literally have tons of recipes all prepped to be added.

As you can see, we have streamlined things to make it easier for you to find what you want.

One of the things with this site is that all the widgets are on the bottom of the screen.  Leaving the page clean for you to view on whatever device you are using.  I also invite you to follow our Facebook page since there are often recipes I post there that I find on my walls.

Right now, all I have done is the breads.  But after I finish posting this, I will work on whatever is next on the listings.  I am having to go in and ‘touch’ each recipe to make sure it will sync with the new format.

For the menu system, we have revamped that as well. The categories are on the bottom of the page as a cloud.  We knew that the old menu was hard to use on a tablet (especially since I am one of those tablet users for cooking!) and wanted to find an easier way for you to use the site and find what you are looking for.  We went for a restaurant style menu since we are all familiar with that setup.  Once you click on the main menu, it will show you what all is offered under that category.  If you wish to refine it, we attempted to do that with sub-categories.  You can always look to see what the sub-categories are since they are listed under the main listing.

At the very top of the footer section is the search option.  I have used this to find what I am looking for.

We are also looking at more options to feature recipes on the now static front page.   Once we are done with the organizing, we will replace the front page with a picture equivalent of the categories.

I will also be showcasing the recipes that I am organizing so that you can see what wonderful options we have! The first is below:

Banana Bread

I am working on each recipe, and I will be looking for my instructions on how to do the biscuits to add to that recipe.

Enjoy and please let us know what you think!
