a new home and a new face

I am super excited to introduce to you the new (and improved, obviously) cake and bourbon, cakeandbourbon.com!

It's been a goal of mine for awhile to move the site to its own domain and to redesign to something a bit more crisp and modern. There are still kinks for me to work out – blogger redirects are giving me fits, and not all the posts have been reformatted – but I was impatient to share! I would love to hear your thoughts on the redesign, so leave them in that handy comment box.

I have new no recipes to share right now, although I made cookies during finals week:

These were a Joy the Baker Cookbook recipe which she coincidentally posted herself just a week after I made them. You can find the recipe here.

Hopefully there will be something new out of my kitchen soon; I'm thinking homemade ice cream, perhaps with strawberries? Some of you know I've been weathering some rough times, and the shape and flow of my life is bound to continue to change, and the content of my posts with it. Don't worry, food and recipes will be a constant. I have an entirely unrealistic list of "must-make" recipes, the weather is warm and the grill is calling my name,  and the farmers markets are filling up with fruits and vegetables, like these beauties I devoured on Saturday:
