Hi, everybody!

As you have probably noticed by now, we’ve given Simply Recipes a bit of a make-over! Everybody needs to get gussied up now and then, including websites. Do you like?!

What’s New?

First off, we have a brand new logo. We gave our original logo a new coat of paint, and then switched things up with a more modern font. We know the old one will be missed (sniff!), but trust me, we are going places with this fresh, new look!

Second, we decided to switch up the colors. Friends, we played around with a LOT of different colors back at Simply Recipes HQ. There was a lot of late night chatter on our Slack channels about this or that color palette, and whether certain subtle shades of red made us feel happy or sad or just hungry.

In the end, this watermelon red and teal blue rose to the top. There’s no great story behind our choice, I’m afraid, other than that we just really liked these colors. We hope you do, too.

What’s Next?

We’re hard at work on a bigger, broader, and even more awesome site redesign, which we hope to bring you in early 2020. If you’re a newsletter subscriber, we’ll be sharing glimpses of this new design over the next few months. (If you aren’t subscribed, go do it now!)

In the meantime, we’ll continue to share great recipes, tips, and stories every week. As always, we love to hear your feedback. Drop us a note and let us know what you think!

    I like the original. The color scheme was homey. The new color scheme is millennial and impersonal. Looks like it’s trying to fit into the current generation.

    We all followed Elise/Simply Recipes because of the quality/success factor of each recipe. The original logo may have looked outdated to you / but to me it represented unique person to person connectivity.

    I guess I’m the odd ball…I prefer the original design and color palette. I think it was much homier. I normally love a change up on stuff…but not just for the sake of “change”.

    I have followed Elise for many years and always loved the ‘dad’ stories and Simply Recipes being just a great place to find ‘normal’ recipes with yummy ingredients. I know in the age of speed and flash, one has to keep up. Now I will wait for the name to change :/ Simply Recipes is surely way to ‘simple’.
