Cooking, Baking & Cocktail Shaking

Introducing One Sweet Mess!

I have some very exciting news to share with you today: The Messy Baker is now officially One Sweet Mess!

I’ve been toying with the idea of rebranding for the past year and finally made the leap after falling in love with my site’s tagline, One Sweet Mess! I’ve been working behind the scenes with the lovely and talented Lindsay of Purr Design over the past few weeks to turn my feeble sketch of a few stacked bowls into a beautifully crafted design.

One Sweet Mess Logo

The design is fun, vibrant, and oozing batter. It’s the perfect representation of the flour-slinging ninja I become when I enter the kitchen.

The funky new logo design is the first of many new features.

The recipe index got a face lift. It’s now visually appealing and organized by category with a coordinating photo.

One Sweet Mess Recipe Index

My site is officially mobile-friendly! Since most of you use your mobile device or tablet to access the Internet, it was absolutely essential to make the necessary changes to achieve a mobile responsive design. Now you can access my site on your phone or tablet with ease.

The search bar is now located in the upper left hand corner. If you’re looking for something specific, type in what you’re searching for and recipes that match your keywords will show up.

I hope you love the new site design as much as I do. Happy cooking, baking, and cocktail shaking!
