Baking Bites’ New Look

New Look

It has been a long time since I updated the look of Baking Bites’ main page, but I’ve been working on a new look for some time now and launched it this weekend. Sorry for any downtime. I know that I helped a lot of you out by e-mailing you recipes and messaging them through Facebook!

The new look has more pictures, although the photos on the main page are smaller to help increase page load time. You can still see the full size images when you load up the individual post pages and recipes. The main page only shows the first few blog posts, as well as some featured posts and baking tips, but you can click on the “blog” tab for a more traditional view of all the posts on the site!

I should mention that there are some cool new features on Baking Bites now, too. We are now mobile friendly, with a mobile layout that will work on iPhones and other smart phones and will rescale to work better on tablet computers and iPads!

We have a monthly  newsletter put out in conjunction with Rodelle, makers of my favorite baking extracts, where you can get a recipe and some baking tips delivered straight to your inbox every month. No spam, just a recipe!

Finally, we also now have a very cool random post button at the top of the navigation bar. This button will show you a random post from the site and it is a great way to explore new recipes and be surprised by old favorites! Did you know that there are more than 3000+ posts on Baking Bites? There has never been a more fun way to explore them. A much improved recipe index will be coming in the next few weeks, as well as some other small improvements, so keep checking back for more updates and enjoy the new look of Baking Bites!

  1. Love it! I have an iPad and am finding the new update very user-friendly. I am off to do some more exploring of your site..plan to sign-up for the newsletter, too.

  2. Looks great! I hope you’ll have a complete list of your recipes on a single page…it’s so helpful, instead of having to scroll through multiple pages!

  3. Love the new look! Like being able to scroll through a few posts and pick the one I want to read completely.

  4. As noted on a previous blog I missed you over the weekend but was thrilled with the changes. Really looks great and I can’t wait to try it on the iPad. Thanks for all your hard work getting it launched.

  5. Very nice additions! Love it! :)

  6. Have been unable to get RSS feed to work for your site for some time now. Any idea why this might be and how to fix it?

  7. I love the new look, Nicole! Very clean and easy to use. Plus I love the baking tips section on the bottom of your homepage. Awesome!

  8. Ever since the new look, the RSS feed is not working… Do you know why?
