The New Kayotic Kitchen

Filed under: Expressions,life,randomness — Tags: , , — Kay @ 11:40 am


Boy, am I glad the new design is finished and the site is up and running again. How do you like it?

There are a few minor wrinkles left to iron out here and there, but mainly the transition went smooth and that is nothing short of a miracle with all the things that could have gone wrong. Aside from the down time, that is. Sorry ‘bout that! It was especially cruel after just publishing a new recipe, I know (Kenyan Curried Cabbage). What can I say? I have a cruel streak! Mea culpa.

I am in love with the design! Madly, passionately, head-over-heels in love with it. Seeing your idea materialized is such an amazing experience. It has the exact homey feel I was going for. Many thanks to Sergio for creating my visions—whom I probably drove crazy during the design process. My birth sign is Virgo. Really, need I say more?

And I especially want to thank all of you for the frantic clicks while my site was still in maintenance mode. You missed me, haven’t you? Oh come on now, admit it!

      Just noticed your 1st comment somehow ended up in my spam folder! No idea why. That thing lives a life of its own, I tell you :)

      Thanks for the compliment!

      I was definitely one of those with the frantic clicking! I went shopping for ingredients for the Princess Cupcakes + frosting during the week, because I wanted to make them today for a visit to one of my friends. But I hadn’t printed the recipe-cards I needed! D’oh, when I wanted to do it yesterday! Then I had to figure something else out (ended with some easter-chocolate-muffins)… That will teach me a leason! I missed you ;-)
      Oh, and the design is great :-) I like that you have divided the blog in 3 main categories :-)

      I want to tell you that I just printed a recipe from your site.  You have made your recipes beautiful.  So lovely.  I can’t wait to try the Kaytucky Chicken.  I’ll be back for more.  I have added you to my google reader.

      I like the how the facebook and twitter links look like they are only part of the design.
