Your whole food, plant-based life.

Welcome to Our New Home!

There is a part of me that can’t quite believe that you are reading this post, on this page in our new Rawmazing home. It has been a very long time coming. If I start from when I first started wanting to expand Rawmazing, years. If you count the months that the designers and I have been working on the new site, eight.

There is an amazing amount of work that goes into developing a website. Rawmazing has over 6 years of content. It is a bit like climbing Everest. Well, not really, but you get my point. Every picture had to be reformatted, every post re-written. The design work went through revision after revision. But boy, was it worth it. I actually cried when I saw the dev site go live. And today, we can finally bring you the fruits of all of our labor!

I wanted to let you know about a couple of things that are new, and plans that we have going forward.

  • The first thing you have to check out is the  Recipe Index. It is so much easier to search recipes. And if you want to search ingredients, just use the search box in the upper right corner.
  • As you can see, the posts look different. The recipes are still printable but so much prettier. And all the recipes are still here All 300 plus of them.
  • We are adding new sections to the blog. You will see more cooked food (all plant-based, whole food), a separate section for beauty which we will be expanding, a lifestyle category where I will be exploring this plant-based lifestyle and introducing you to wonderful people and fun things. The photography section links to my photography site but will be expanding in the near future to show you the behind the scenes work and help you to learn along the way. I am super excited about the store. It will be growing to include curated collections of the most wonderful plant based living goods. As it is, it should be much easier for you to find and order the things you need.
  • Each recipe will have the main ingredients or kitchen tools highlighted in the side-bar. Need something? Just click on the picture and you can find out more and even order the product.
  • We are also starting to include a really cool “tip box” where you will find more interesting information about recipes.
  • We have a great “Getting Started Page” that has a lot of good information even if you have been with us for years.
  • The “FAQ” page has been reformatted and we will be adding to it as you bring us questions.
  • And I would love it if you would stop by our new “About” page. I posted a recent wedding picture there and I also give you a closer look at who I am, and why I write this blog.

Jennifer Heller of Artsy Geek did an amazing job of translating my wishes into a reality. Shannon (my assistant) and Kaia (my daughter) and I worked endlessly, going through post after post to get everything just right. And I am thrilled with the results and very grateful for their help. And especially my husband, Peter because without his support, this wouldn’t have been possible.

I really would love to hear what you think about the new site. Enjoy and look for our first new recipe post on Tuesday!

    I love your new site. Beautiful layout, stunning photography. The recipe section is particularly fabulous and I want to make them all they look so scrumptious. Looking forward to some of the new side ventures (beauty, lifestyle) I’m excited to see the cooked section as I find it difficult to eat raw in the winter here in the North. Warm and hot foods are a necessity. Thank you for all your generosity in sharing your wonderful recipes and creations.

    The new site looks great Susan, however I can’t seem to figure out how to search the recipe index by the ‘ingredient’ method, which I always use almost exclusively. When I click on the upper right box as suggested I don’t see anything that suggests I can search by ingredients… did I miss something? Thanks for all your great work!

      Hey, Gary, great question. You still can search by ingredient. Just click on the word, “search” at the top right corner. Then type what ingredient you want to search for. Like cauliflower. Hit return or the magnify glass and it will bring up all the recipes that have cauliflower in them. It is just like the search from the old site but you will really like how the results look!

        Sorry Susan….. but it ain’t working for me. When I click on the upper right box all I get is a menu. There is no search function or search box to be found anywhere that I can see.

          Can you tell me what device you are using? A computer, a phone?

            There is a search function on the website online. I am not seeing it on the mobil site. I will let the developer know right away. 🙂

    The photography is lovely but I agree, font a big larger and darker. I shall also miss your old logo – it was such a fabulous definable brand, that everyone I recommended you too simply loved and your present one – well, seems like so many other indistinguishable ones. Sorry…..

      So sorry you don’t like it, Candy. We think it represents more of what Rawmazing is about…good food (the green leaf) and a healthy lifestyle. The old logo was just a swirl. I hope you get used to it! Cheers!
