Kalyn's Kitchen

Welcome to the New-and-Improved Kalyn’s Kitchen!

Kalyn's Kitchen has had a facelift!

If you’re reading this post, you’re seeing the new-and-improved Kalyn’s Kitchen on my WordPress site, and I’m so excited with the increased functionality that switching WordPress is going to give to my readers. Lindsay from Purr Design did a beautiful job on the site; thanks Lindsay!

As I mentioned, moving a huge site like Kalyn’s Kitchen involves a lot of little details to be straightened out, so if you find a link that doesn’t go to what you’re expecting, leave a comment on that post (or here) and let me know, we’ll get it straightened out as soon as we can.

Over the weekend I realized that I was going to have an amazing new Recipe Index, but most of my 2,000+ recipes on the site only had the Diet-Type tags, so lots of the recipe index pages wouldn’t have much for you to see. So I spent a long weekend in front of the computer tagging recipes (definitely a humbling experience when I got back to the earliest years!) I got about 10 years worth of recipes done in two very long days, so I hope you’ll visit the recipe index and check it out. And I will finish that job and refine the current tags when I catch my breath.

While you’re in the Recipe Index, click on a recipe and notice how every recipe will have orange Diet-Type tags at the top to show what types of diets that recipe is suitable for. If you’re following a particular type of diet, you can click that tag to see more recipes for that way of eating!

Eventually the site will have beautifully-formatted recipe (see an example in this recipe) but every recipe has to be switched to that manually, so even if I hire someone to do it, that will take a long time. Meanwhile, the previous recipes with a printer-friendly link will continue to work until they are replaced with the new format.

I hope you love the new site as much as I do. Thanks to my wonderful readers for all the support; this site wouldn’t exist without all of you! There’s still a lot of work to do, but I am hoping to have a new recipe posted here within a few more days!
