Welcome to the new and much improved Annie’s Eats!  If you read this site through a feed reader, you will need to unsubscribe and then resubscribe in order to follow the new feed.  This update has been in the works for quite a long time so it feels amazing to have it finally going live.  Take a look around and navigate the new site.  It has some features I think readers will enjoy such as an updated search function that sorts based on relevancy instead of chronologically, as well as easier access to the archives.  I also get a lot of questions about what sort of kitchen equipment I have, so now you can see a lot of cookbooks and kitchen tools I have (or similar versions) in the Amazon store.  Of course, with this transition there are still minor tweaks to be worked out, but in general things are ready for action.  I hope you enjoy the new site as much as I do!

Thanks to everyone who has helped us with this transition.  But most of all, thanks to my totally rockin’ graphic designer Ryan of 2nd Street Creative.  I never, ever would have been able to do this without you (and now having worked with me, you know just how true that is :).)

  • Looks great! Excited to start using the new site – especially the search function – I’m always searching in your archives for great recipes I saw. I’m a newlywed who is just now learning to cook, your recipes along with your tips and tricks have helped me learn SO much in a short amount of time and I’m very appreciative (so is my husband.) Keep up the good work!

    It looks fab, Annie! I just wanted to say thank you. Like Laura ^ I am also a newlywed who was absolutely clueless when it came to the kitchen. A cousin sent me the link, and I was hooked! I’ve had several parties and hosted several other events, always including recipes from the blog. (My new hubby has even mentioned a time or two that I might just cook better than his mom! (; ) So THANK YOU! And Happy Holidays!

  • Looks great. Love the rotating header!

    Hi, Annie. I’m normally a lurker, but I had to join the legions who say they love your new site design. I think it looks fantastic. I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and a brilliant New Year. Thank you for teaching me how to cook. I look forward to learning more from you next year.

  • Nancy H.

    I don’t see any archives. When I click on a recipe on the right, it is not your recipe.
    Where are your recipes and archives???

  • Annie

    At the top of the page, under archives.

  • Stephanie

    It looks incredible!

    Maybe I am blind, but I cannot find the link for your Amazon store? Please point me in the right direction!

  • Stephanie

    Oh, I found it hidden under the blogroll!

  • Looks awesome Annie. So clean and easy to navigate. Love it.

  • Love it!

  • This is the first time I have come to your site, but it looks amazing!

  • Mary Ruth

    I tried to comment first thing this morning, unfortunately it didn’t work out!

  • Hillary

    i love your new website, but does it not have the “search” feature your old one did? i loved being able to type in the recipe i was looking for and it popped right up. now i have to figure out which category it belongs in and scroll back from there. am i missing something? do you still have this feature on your new beautiful site? thanks!

  • Annie

    It’s on the right side, and now it actually returns relevant material!
