“Monique where the heck have you been over the past few weeks?” is a question I’ve been getting a lot of. I’ve been MIA and you’re looking at the reason why!

I HAVE A NEW SITE DESIGN!!!! And I guess what? I DID IT! Well not everything. I started off with the bones and customized it myself (which is epic for my non-coding self) *collapses from lack of sleep*

You like?

Be gentle, I’m still  not done yet. I have so many more sections that I’m adding to it but I didn’t want to keep it offline for too long while I tweaked it. Just step over the clutter for a few more days and make yourself at home!

Let me say, I’m all for being self-sufficient and DIY everything but I DID NOT set out to design my entire site. This is for the birds!!  My current designer…well…yeah…that’s another story that I’ll be sharing soon depending on certain circumstances.  *side eye* lol

Things didn’t work out with that company so you know what they say “Sometimes you just gotta do it yourself!”

Designing my own site has been…quite the experience. Many long hours, a few cuss words, lots of coffee and squinting at tiny html codes. It sucked!  I wouldn’t trade it for the world though. I can’t tell you how good it feels to know my site inside out and not have to depend on people to change things for me and what not.

I’d totally write more but I pulled a 25 hour shift to get this site up today and I’m a zombie right now!! Besides lack of sleep makes me chatty and causes me to laugh at everything lol. See.

But I just wanted to let you guys know I’mBACK and ready to crank out some more awesome recipes and get back into the swing of things!

Gosh I missed you guys like crazy!
