Big Red Kitchen Gets a New Look

Well the poll is closed and the final vote was 17 to 14 in favor of the new header vs. the old. Many more readers made their opinion known through comments, email, phone calls, gossip, and mental telepathy in favor of the old header. Many felt that the old header spoke more about what this blog represented but really liked the quote in the new header. I listened. Did you hear that Ma? See the new old header above? It’s the new Big Red Kitchen!

I have been updating a few things around here as well. My friend Rindy thought my mug should be on the About Page so that people could realign their preconceived notions of what I look like. Were your envisioning an angel maybe? Oh by the way, I don’t always look that awful.

I have also have a new Navigation Bar up top to direct you around the site. A fairly new feature is Standing Ovation! That is when I try another food blogger’s recipe and highlight it on my blog. Click on Standing Ovation! to see who received a Standing Ovation! Blogs of the Month is along the same line, I highlight food blogs I enjoy. Take a peak there as well. And if you are really bored and need a lift, you can click on the pretty frosted pink cake and see what I am doing throughout my day. Oh wait, that could depress you. If you want to banter about nothing with me, join Twitter.

Stay tuned, on Monday I will have a new About Page. Yup more info about your’s truly. Some things may surprise you. It could be shocking. Everyone who knows me should shake in their shoes for what I may reveal.

PS- You gals at my Dad’s office, thank you for voting I hope to hear from you soon.

    PaniniKathy- Thanks! I like it for now, I change my blog like I change my mind, all the time! I think I’m a little manic, or very bored!

    redforever- This is the only picture I don’t have a big zit on my chin, seriously! Lots of coverup!

    Sarah- Thanks, we girls love makeup.

    Karen- Thanks, I think I may have over done it. A little too busy. Ah chage is good for now. Its summer!

    Thatgirl- Nope I’m a shrimp. 5 Foot in the am and 4’11” by night, I slouch!

    Kristen- Thank you very much! I am having fun, even though I have no idea what I’m doing!!

    Rindy- Oh you don’t want that class. I may mess up your blog too. Yours is the one that is so very cute.

    You have made the right choice. I loved the old header but adored the new “verse”. Now, like your food – it won’t get any better.

    Wow!! What a fantastic looking blog. It always looked good to me – but it’s the recipes that keep me coming back. I’ll be joining the Blogging 101 class.

    Excellent! I like it! I’m actually considering red for my kitchen (big paint job coming this Fall), because of that photo and your blog. See how far-reaching be thou influence?

    Nicisme- Thanks for such a nice complement!

    Anon- I’m glad to have made the right choice, it feels right too!

    Eat!- Wouldn’t that be a fun class! Thanks for coming back!

    Kate- Oh red will be a BIG paint job. It is as thick as honey and goes on in 3-4 coats. But it is so pretty and warm. My guests enjoy being in there. I live in there and I have threatened to put a couch in there!
