Makeover Monday

109 comments

Good morning!

I want to tell you about a fun makeover that is going down on my Recipes page. Phase 2 of my recipes page makeover is currently underway…and delicious things are happening.

I have been going through every recipe on my Recipes page (over 300!) and organizing my little heart out. I’m fixing broken links (there were a lot…) and grouping recipes into easier to locate subcategories. For example,  there is now a ‘Vegan Overnight Oats’ subsection within the ‘Breakfast’ category and a ‘Chews/Balls/Truffles’ subsection under the ‘Raw/No Bake’ section.

But what I am most excited about is that I have been inserting a clickable thumbnail image of each recipe

I’m hoping that this helps you guys find recipes a lot easier and also locate some recipes that you may have missed. I included a sub category of ‘Angela’s Favourites’ recipes as well (in ‘Dinner’ section). Yesterday, I got about 120 recipes + images complete and I am hoping to finish off the rest today or tomorrow.

Click here to check out what I have done so far…be warned though you might get hungry!

Also checkout my right hand sidebars- I have added a ‘Featured Recipes’ list and an ‘Afternoon Powersnacks’ list that will be continually updating as new recipes are added.

I hope this makes your life easier and my Recipes page is a bit more fun for you to explore.

I shall return. wlEmoticon smile   Makeover Monday

I’m impressed! That is some serious work you are putting into your page, and thanks so much for it! I love the idea of click-able thumbnails and have thought about doing that for my page too, but the amount of work to do it stops me every time.

You are dedicated!

I’ve yet to try vegan overnight oats. It’s one of those things that requires night-before planning and always slips my mind. MUST get on that asap!
