Hello, dearies!!! Good News!!! FBTY has put on a fresh face, with some awesome new features… Just in case you hadn’t noticed, our site design has changed…
I do hope you enjoy it! Our logo has been updated, and now there is a cool slideshow on the homepage header that presents great images from Brazil’s different cultural elements. Also, from now on, searching for recipes will be a snap: our search box is now located in a conspicuous place at the top of the menu bar! We also have several new pages.
Among these pages, there is your favorite one of all: RECIPES– but this time with new categories, and displayed by picture. Oh, yeah! It will be much easier now to find anything that you want. You can see the pictures and their respective titles, and can decide much more easily upon one or more recipes. I hope that you browse them all to your heart’s content.
Our social buttons are also now more visible as well, both on our homepage and within posts. I hope you follow FBTY on social media and share our recipes. After all, sharing is caring!!! Sharing is also a way to let me and others know what you enjoy, and to give others the chance to enjoy it too…
You can pin our pictures much more easily since a PIN button was installed on all pictures. To see the button, just position your mouse over the picture that you would like to pin.
Further, now our recipes are easier to save, thanks to ZipList, and now they are also print-friendly. How cool is that?
Our newsletter has a new format, as can be seen from the one you may have received this morning.
And I could never have done this all without uber web-designer Josh, from JP Designs. The man did a fabulous job… and had a huge amount of patience to accommodate all my demands. 🙂 Thanks, Josh, for everything that you have done!
I am so happy to provide all of this for you all… Enjoy our new home and have fun!
