A New Look for B&S

After many late nights of screaming at my computer I am proud and excited to introduce the new Biscuits and Such! It was a huge overhaul of the whole site and I’m both very happy with how it looks and completely terrified by the change. So you know, progress as usual!

The biggest change is that the front page is no longer just the blog feed, but instead a collection of featured posts and recipes. You’ll find a scrolling carousel of ten of my favorite recent recipes (click the photo to see the recipe in full!) and the four most recent blog posts. Want to see more of the blog? Just click “More Blog Posts” to see our blog page!

Speaking of the blog page! Click on the “Blog” link in the menu and you’ll see everything ever posted on B&S, three posts at a time.

If you’re looking for something a little more specific, I think you’ll like the new recipe index. From main menu you can scroll through our recipes by category. You’ll see all the posts, starting with the most recent,  in an image based format. I can’t get over how awesome this looks, it’s so much fun to scroll through all the recipes and see over six years worth of recipes.

Know exactly what you want? There’s a search! Click on the magnifying glass on the right side of the menu and a search bar pops up at the top. No matter what page you’re on you can pull up the search bar and search to your heart’s desire.

Ultimately the reason I decided to overhaul the site is to make it more responsive, something that is a priority as use of mobile devices to access sites of all kind becomes more common. So no matter whether you’re accessing B&S on your computer, tablet, or phone, it will look beautiful.

I am so happy with how it looks, and the feedback has been really wonderful and incredibly supportive. I would love to hear from YOU about what you think of the new design, and please know that I am happy to answer any questions you may have about navigating it. And I’m sure there are still some glitches, so if you find anything funky, let me know. And, as always, thank you for reading and loving and sharing B&S. The past six years of writing this site have been life changing, and I so appreciate the support of all of the people who read this site and make it worth it.
