New Site Design!!

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

Notice any changes? It’s here – the new site design!! We’ve completely re-vamped our blog. We hope you love it and are as excited about it as we are. Our primary focus was making it more user friendly. It’s clean as a baby’s bottom (post bath). I think you’ll find it easier to navigate, and find what you’re looking for.

For the past couple of months, we’ve been working behind the scenes with Rachel and Stephen of Cre8d to completely overhaul and redesign our site (If you get a quote from them, let them know I sent you by using my referral code: NK). Even our logo is spiffed up (my hubby redesigned it himself).

Ready for the tour? Oh and be sure to scroll to the bottom for a very cool video tutorial!

The most drastic change is on mobile devices. It’s way way way way way way way easier to cook from your mobile device (I know many of you cook recipes from your phones and ipads). It’s truly mobile optimized. The ipad version is now the same as the desktop version. #FistBump (I’m so happy right now).

Here’s what’s new:

1. The search is at the top right of the blog and now accounts for misspellings (because goluptsi/golubtsy/goloobtse) can be spelled an endless number of ways. Also the menu scrolls with you so you don’t have to scroll for miles to get back to it.

Search

2. Our Recipes (top menu bar) are easier to find than ever before! You will discover better categories and can even search by ingredient. Plus, click on Category, Cuisine, Diet or Ingredient and it magically skips down to the correct section so you don’t have to scroll.

3. It’s crazy easy to subscribe to our email newsletter. If you haven’t gotten on that train, just get ‘er done y’all. I wouldn’t want you to miss out on all the benefits of being in our VIP email club (exclusive giveaways, menu ideas, stories and photos you won’t see anywhere else).

Subscribe

4. New Life Tab on the top menu bar. Finally a category for all the fun travel, home, parties, and family posts! Before they were lost in oblivion after being posted. Now maybe I’ll be motivated to keep up this part of the blog #personalproblem

Family_Archives_-_NatashasKitchen_com

5. The new Resources button on the top menu has everything you need to know to start your own blog.

6. Love Pinterest? Me too!! You can find me on pinterest between 6:30am and midnight ;).You can now easily pin my recipes on any device. P.S. Thanks for pinning – I love it when you all pin and share my recipes on Facebook and Instagram. It means alot to me and helps others discover my blog. Seriously, THANK YOU!

7. When you open a recipe, there is a print button at the top of the post in the print friendly recipe at the bottom. Also, the new print layout is snazzier and easier to read. So if you’ve printed all my recipes, you can do it again! Yes!!! 😉

8. To comment, click the “Add comment/review” button at the bottom of the post:

9. Check out this cool trick! If you use something other than an iPhone or iPad and know how to do this on your device, please share your knowledge in a comment below :).

Also, you’re awesome and thanks for reading my blog. Please poke around and explore the new design and let me know how you like it :).

      We couldn’t figure out where to put it (it didn’t fit in the menu bar at the top since we wanted no drop down menus and wanted it to fit on mobile in one line). I’ll think about where we might fit it in. Thanks Olga! Reply

    Wow Natasha (and Vadim!) I love your new site design, it’s so simple, beautiful, and easy to use now! When you were mentioning a site “redesign” I had no idea what else you could do, your blog was already perfect. I love using all of your no-fail recipes, they are my favorite! When I got married 4 years ago, I found out about your site, it was still a baby back then, I loved getting your email updates every week and trying out all of your recipes. Keep up the great work! Reply

    This is really neat what you did. I already put your page on my home screen. I’m definitely a frequent visitor and so are my young kids. They love it when i open your page and when I’m done with what I’m looking for, they always want to watch your cooking videos over and over again. Even my almost 3 year old. Reply

  • Love the new layout. I just need to gush, don’t mind me.
    1) Love that the top menu bar stays in place when you scroll down.
    2) Loving that it goes to desktop view on gadgets, like what??
    3) LOVE the gray.
    4) So much easier to navigate and loving the addition of the Life tab and Search at the top that doesn’t move, like genius.
    5) You may now start on a COOK BOOK!!!
    Bravo Vadim & Natasha, Open Blog House was a success!! 🙂 🙂

    The website updates are fantastic! I’ve been a reader for years now, and I just want to thank you for this wonderful resource, especially for the Russian recipes. Every recipe I have tried has been excellent, and many are staples in our home. I planned a Russian feast for my husband’s birthday last weekend, and all our guests were blown away! My husband was so impressed, and was calling his mom (his favorite cook), telling her how awesome all the stuff I made was. I used your Chicken Olivye, Cucumber Tomato salad, Potatoes with Mushrooms & Cream, Carrot Cheese spread, and Kiev cake (aka my husband’s yearly birthday cake).

    I’m so happy that your blog has become so successful for your family. I really appreciate all the love, work, and recipe testing/tweaking you all do. I love the way you write and your humor, too! Always makes me smile 🙂

    Thanks again! Reply

    I love the new design, Natasha! I can tell how much thought and effort you put into it. It’s so user-friendly and looks really sleek, modern and warm. Awesome.
    I’ve been working on updating the design on my blog for the past few months, so I can really relate:). Reply

      Olga, I love visiting your blog and can’t wait to see what you’re working on! Thank you for your nice compliment! It means a lot coming from you 🙂 it’s been a lot like building a house. Choosing everything from the ground up takes time but it is definitely a labor of love. I’m also so thankful for the web designers that we hired at cre8d. They were seriously awesome! Reply
