The New Website is Live!

After many weeks of planning and designing here we are with the brand new site live. I really hope you like the new design and layout. I’d really love to know what you think so let me know: the good, the bad and the ugly. And if there’s anything you’d like to see that isn’t here or if you have any ideas for the features section, or any others, do let me know.

The URL did change a few weeks ago from to so don’t forget to update your RSS readers, bookmarks and links. The new RSS feed is feed://

    A very interesting site Julia. Some interesting recipes of which I will be trying out especially the lemon Salmon spaghetti and the Eton Mess with white chocolate pieces.

    You have done really well Julia producing what looks will be a very interesting book and your website to back it up. I wish you every success

    Well done! This looks fantastic, I reckon you’ve totally raised the bar for UK food blogs here. It really shows off your content and achievements beautifully. pst – if you ever want to feature me in your community section you know where I live. I’ll never forget how you were one of my earliest Twitter followers and it really gave me the incentive to take my blog seriously.

    Website looks fab, have pre-ordered my copy of your book.

    Hi Julia – I just wanted to say how much I love the new site. It is stunning – clean looking and user friendly. If this is anything to go by the book is going to be awesome!

    Great site Julia, it’s nice and easy to find things, which helps and there isn’t too much “going on” which I always find really off putting on websites. Would be interested to know what you think the advantages are over Blogger – probably quite a lot by the look of your new site!

  13. June 13, 2010 / 5:10 pm

    Simply WOW! I can’t wait to start exploring all the sections!

  14. June 13, 2010 / 5:23 pm

    Lovely! Wow, everything so tidy!!! And tasteful but then you already got us used to that.
    In love with the “recipes” area.
    Congratulations Julia! WELL Done :thumbsup:

    Goodness, what a fabulous response! I really am very happy that you all like the site. I am still tweaking things here and there so do tell me if you have any suggestions or would like to see anything different.

    Sarah – I’d love to feature you! I’ll be in touch…

    Janice – thank you!

    Choclette – it’s early days but, as you say, quite a lot, I would say! You can just do so much more with it – it’s really a content management system giving you much more control over how you organise your content.

    Thank you all so much for your good wishes, they mean more than you could ever know x

    Rhyelysgranny – how lovely to see you too! It’s been ages since I’ve been on the forum. I wonder if I can remember my ID and password?
