New Name. New Site. Old Recipes.

Gast Family Recipes Goodbye, Gast Family Recipes. Hello, Mighty Mrs.!

Oldies but goodies though! All of our same recipes are now on Mighty Mrs. and I will continue posting new recipes as we test and perfect them. So why did I rename and redesign? Here's why:
  • I want a name and a site that has a little more personality so that people can get to know me and all my mightiness and I'll even share with you all of my flaws (OK, some) — ain't no Martha Stewart here.
  • I want to provide a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes effort that goes into this recipe blog. It's a lot of fun and it's a lot of work. I want you to see the whole process.
  • You can now rate every recipe on a 5-star scale.
  • It's easier to find recipes with an improved search bar and simpler site navigation.
  • It's mobile and tablet friendly. This will be helpful for cooking, grocery shopping and Pinning!
  • You can now easily print your favorite recipes. Keep a binder of your favorite ones!
  • Eventually I'd like to open a little online shop with some cute and one-of-a-kind items to make cooking more fun. Because aside from the dirtying dishes, cooking should actually be enjoyable. Especially if you add wine.
  • More recipe details: cook & prep time, how easy or hard the dish is to make and reviews by others who have made the dish.
  • The ads — I decided I do want to have ads on my site. I try to keep them as out-of-the-way as possible and I even selected ad categories that I think will be appealing to you all. Some spam does get through from time to time but I even try to monitor that to keep it to a minimum. I do make an average of $30-50/month off of them. I hope that will increase over time as I get more visitors and get accepted into better ad networks. I plan to keep everyone posted about that because in addition to sharing my favorite recipes, I also want to be a resource to others looking to start their own blog. If you're curious about starting your own blog, check out what's involved.
So there ya go. Lots of reasons to love the new site. Thanks for sticking with me! Please be sure to like the new Mighty Mrs. Facebook page.
