Before I get started today, I’d like to apologize for my lack of posting but it couldn’t be helped. Why? Because Turnips 2 Tangerines has gotten a ‘new look!’ How do you like the new blog design?? I love it and am very pleased with the final look. I’ve been blogging for a very long time, eight years to be exact, and wanted something lasting. Since this will most likely be my last ‘Big’ blog design makeover, I wanted to splurge and splurge I did. So sit tight for a minute, I’ll get to the recipe for Lemon Poppyseed Bread with Lemon Glaze.

Behind the Scenes

There is still lots that I have to do behind the scenes. It will be an ongoing process for sometime but I’m up for the challenge. Things like optimizing all of my images and thumbnails, all 68,411 of them. I will need to go through each recipe and make sure they are ‘google’ worthy. All of my posts, over 1,300 of them, need to be more ‘google’ worthy. After all, everything needs to be ‘searchable.’ Now I need to get my butt in gear and start posting. The recipes that I made during the summer and into September are starting to pile up, so to speak:)
