Happy Thanksgiving and Some News!

I’ve begun moving the site to my 0wn domain! I’m very excited about this change but, like any change, it is hard, and overwhelming. But hopefully after vacation I will return with a clear head and then all of this code will suddenly make sense to me.

Please be on the lookout for an update after Thanksgiving!

Speaking of Thanksgiving, have a great one! If you don’t yet know what you’re bringing to the holiday feast, let me leave you with this simple and delicious recipe. It is a crowd pleaser!
