A New Design!


Looks like Wilbur noticed it.  Did you?

Pinch My Salt has a brand new design! It will take a little time to iron out all the kinks but for the most part, the new site should now be up and running. If you are using Internet Explorer, you still might notice an error or two. This will be resolved shortly! But as always, this site is best viewed using the award-winning Firefox web browser.

A big thanks goes out to Ben, my very talented and very patient designer!

The above photo is of Wilbur, my sister’s 38 pound Bull Mastiff puppy. We spent this last weekend together at his home in San Diego where he had fun waking me every morning by jumping on my head. My sister and brother-in-law thought it was rather amusing. You can see more Wilbur photos here. I’ll be back with more food soon!

    So Wilbur will help you with your next creation….”Slobber Sandwiches, wrapped in old bed sheets, and lightly sprinkled with Dirt”?

    The site looks great, although I am partial to the old banner with the Italian Pastries…

    Nicole, it seems like just last week when you changed things around! Things look good, though… Nice fall colors.

    Great job Nicole and Ben 🙂

    Hi Nicole, I just wanted to say that the new design looks gorgeous. I love the colors! But I enjoy your blog no matter what the desing. It’s the writing that draws me in, even if I never remember to comment!

    Cute Wilbur! He probably weighs 10 lbs more since his pics were taken.

    It looks wonderful, Nicole! I really like the comment feature and how your comment stands out from the rest. But I think the whole design is terrific. Congrats on the relaunch!

    New site is beautiful. Dog, too. Best viewing for this Mac user is either Firefox or Safari. Internet Express and Netscape don’t work as well.

    Lovely new look! Wilbur is ALLL puppy!! We have a Rhodesian Ridgeback, affectionately refered to as the ‘OX’ or the Herd of One….Wilber looks like he’s going to be around the same size.

    Love the new design Nicole! I’m working on my own revamp, so thanks for the inspiration . . . it’s hard work!

    Adorable pup too . . . my hub and I love the bigguns. We (like C’tina) have a galoot of a Rhodesian Ridgeback who’s convinced he’s a lapdog.

    Love the new look–I’m thinking of getting a face lift myself soon.

    Now that’s a cute dog. Wilbur is a good name, but I’d totally call him “Mr. Dribblesworth”. (Not that you’re looking for a new name for him, of course!) I don’t know why, it just came to me when I was looking at him.

    Doesn’t he just make you want to say ridiculous things in doggy-voice?

    […] house now but my dog Smack is still getting used to the fact that he’s sharing a house with a Bull Mastiff named Wilbur. Wilbur is still a puppy and, at 6 months and 70 pounds now, is not nearly finished […]

    Firstly, I would like to say that I love your site and have been silently following your entries and baking the breads on Peter Reinhart’s BBA for some time now. At the moment, I am checking out some good loaf pans and I noticed that you frequently use one eg in the zuchinni bread recipe. May I know what brand it is and also, is there any non-coated 8.5 x 4.5 in loaf pans that you think is good that I should check out…..
