Almost Done …

Updated: Sheesh. Computers are out to get me this week. Something went wonky with a file, but it's fixed now and the things I wrote about actually work (imagine that!).

Ugh. So busy. I promised myself that I'd get the updates to the site done this past weekend. Of course cuz I promised myself, that didn't happen, but I got very nearly done and with the bits of work I put in last night, I'm even closer. So … what's new? Not lots that you can see. The big deal is the cookbook … I added a few really cool things there. Firstly, there's photos. Not of everything, but I'm taking them as I make stuff and trying to remember to add them. Darn it's hard sometimes to get a halfway decent photo. I'm no Ansel Adams, people! I also added a better search, but the really cool thing I added is called “menu picker” … it will pick a few menus for you to try out, basically randomly, but with some criteria you set. Then it will generate a grocery list. I made it for myself, but I like to share, so there ya go. I figure someone might use it.

Overall, I think it's easier to use. I didn't change the links section much except that I added a new category called “featured” on there for Yvett and Ani, cuz they wanted me to archive the links I post about in some coherent sort of manner, so hopefully that will work out for you guys. I think I'll also add a category to the entries themselves called “linky goodness” or something equally “witty.” But I haven't gotten that accomplished yet. But for the day-to-day, we're ready to go.

Meanwhile, you've all written me nice comments on this and that and I haven't responded to any of you nor have I read any of your blogs, so when things slow down for a minute (possibly tonight), I will work on that. No, really.

    Wow, your cookbook is awesome. I'm adding it to my bookmarks. I wish I was organized (and computer talented) enough to create the menu picker. What a cool program! Good job!

    Okay, AWESOME! I've been trying to build a recipe database that in turn spits out a shopping list for YEARS! Sure, I haven't been very diligent in figuring it out… but I've definitely been working it through in my head. I'm starting to think that you and I were cut from the same cloth. Nice work!!
