To the fancy digs you see around you now:
There are several reasons why I ultimately decided it was time to redesign my blog. First and foremost, I thought the old design was simply too cluttered and busy. There were way too many boxes and widgets that distracted from the food and recipes. I wanted to move to a design that really made my the pictures *pop*. That’s why the new design has an all-white background, complemented only by pastel colors. The austerity of this new blog design is intended to be more of a lightbox that really focuses on the main event; that is, the pictures and recipes.
