This blog has been live for about 18 months now, and I was accruing posts for about 6 months prior to that. So it's about time I organized some of this material in more user-friendly ways. It's happening incrementally, so even though there is a seasonal archive listed, I have to go through and code all the recipes before they actually appear there. Sigh. There are only about 300 of them so I should be finished sometime before the apocalypse. And I got my gorgeous new multi-tasking domestic goddess illustration up, but my banner images went all wonky and reverted to seasons past. Bear with me. It will all come right before you know it. Not the most professional approach, but the best I can manage at the moment. There is a new print icon next to recipes, which now allows you to print only the recipe and not the entire post. And soon there will be more new and improved features: stay tuned. I would really appreciate any feedback or requests in terms of how this site functions. It's a work in progress and I value your input, gentle readers. Without you, I'm nothing (except a harried woman running between the stove, the computer and the garden). Have a fantastic weekend!


Laura, I really enjoy GFL. It appeals to my aesthetics, and your content is engagingly heartfelt. I think it is your writing that continues to draw me in (although the images are drop-dead gorgeous too). Anyway, I keep coming back for more inspiration. Thanks for all you do!

THANK YOU for the print button!! not that i don't love your writing, but i am thrilled i don't have to cut/paste/reformat the recipes onto a word document anymore. i print out quite a few and am hoping you write a cookbook one day so i have them all together. you know, in your spare time ;>)
