Wow, it’s been A WHILE since my last post!
It honestly felt a little strange taking a break from my blog for a week, but it was for all good reasons, I promise!
Some BIG changes happened this week for pumpkin & peanut butter. The most important change: I moved my blog from wordpress.com over to a self-hosted site (Blue Host)!
I’d been thinking about making the switch for a while, but was pretty scared about the whole process of moving sites. I’m not great with the “behind the scenes” computer programming that goes into blogging, so I was terrified that I would lose all my content when I made the move. Long story short… I broke down and got some professional help with this, so the coding was out of my hands and my content would be safe and sound. And I can sleep better at night 🙂
Now I know there are still some kinks going on with my headings and links, but I’m hoping we’ll have those worked out by the end of the week. Thanks for bearing with me! I promise the finished product will be flawless!
Why switch over to a self-hosted site, you ask? There are a couple pros to this. The first being there is a lot more freedom to design my site, add widgets (such as sharing links and pinterest buttons), and unlimited storage for all my content. Another plus— I have the option of one day getting advertising or working with some preferred products and brands, something I wouldn’t be able to do with my old site. That’s thinking wayyyy ahead into the future, but it was still nice giving myself the option.
Now, none of this “moving sites” thing would ever have even crossed my mind without all the support from you guys! You guys are seriously the best! Your comments, likes, messages, and viewings have allowed me to really think about the future of this blog and unleashed this unexpected creative side that I never knew I had. I appreciate you all so much and want to thank you again for all your kind words and support 🙂
Even though my site has been in limbo for the past week, my cooking has certainly NOT! I’ve already experimented with loads of recipes that I can’t wait to share with you this week. Here is the first: a lightened up, healthy little pumpkin muffin to start that week off deliciously. I love the ingredients used in these muffins— they’re healthy enough to eat for breakfast, but also make a nice little snack or dessert when your sweet craving hits.
I actually made this recipe right before our last snow storm hit, so we spent 2 days (without power) gorging ourselves on these little beauties. It definitely made the winter weather a little more tolerable. Enjoy!
And thanks again for your patience and support!
