Alfajores {AKA Dulce de Leche Sandwich Cookies}...and Welcome to the New Site!

Wahoo! Yipee! At last I’m no longer a blogspot! I need to give a big thank you to Cre8d Design. I couldn’t have worked with a better design company to create this new blog! They are so very talented and amazing at what they do. They were so friendly and efficient to work with and they created exactly what I was looking for. They built this site from scratch, so it was customized to be just what I wanted (can you tell I like the Martha Stewart blue and fancy things?). To any of you looking for a blog or website designer I would highly recommend Cre8d Design! You won’t be disappointed. Please have a look around the new Cooking Classy. My new favorite pages, the Recipes and Recipe Box. My recipes finally have some real organization to them! And with the Recipe Box from Ziplist, you can save recipes, not just from my site but many others (such as Martha Stewart, Gooseberry Patch and Simply Recipes). It has other wonderful features, such as creating a shopping list, so be sure to check it out. Some other wonderful and highly needed features are the print button and pin button along with each recipe. Now you can print recipes without getting pages of unnecessary images and information. You can also search my site with a more friendly Google search box which is displayed in the upper right. Also, the site is now configured to automatically update facebook and Twitter (I hardly ever updated them in the past), so please follow along!
