Baked Victoria Plums & My First ‘New Home’ Post!

Well, this is both exciting and scary at the same time! Ta da  – Fabulicious Food! has made the very long cyber journey across from Blogger to WordPress!

I am totally overwhelmed by the help, expertise and professionalism of Liz of Violet Posy Design who has done an amazing job, with about a million technical issues thrown at her too.

It’s going to take me a little while to settle in and get used to the way things work, but hopefully not too long.

If you are experiencing any problems or issues, please do drop me a line.

On Monday I will also be hosting a really amazing giveaway so do stay tuned.

For now, I’m sharing this lovely autumnal plum recipe as there are tons of English plums around at the moment and they are my very favourite fruit.

Simple and in Season September is now open and working – anyone who left me a comment with a link should now find themselves on the current link-up page.

About to hit ‘publish’ so here goes!

  2. Lovely new look, very fresh and inviting! Super recipe too.

    1. Ah thank you so much! Lots to get my head round but enjoying my new home!

  3. Very nice Ren. I am in the throes of moving. Didn’t really know what I was doing, installed a plug-in and stuffed everything up before the hols. Hopefully Jason @ Fl1 Group will work his magic and I will be back on-air before the Oct Half Term – Christmas madhouse period for kids’ books? :o) L x

    1. Hi Lisa, I know what you mean. I’m terrified of installing or adding/changing anything in case I stuff it up too. Look forward to seeing you back on the blog. Thanks for the visit and vote of confidence!

  4. Ren,

    The new blog looks lovely. You’ll love wordpress.

    And I love plums! So may have to try this, like the added almond, amaretto dimension.

    1. Thank you so much Angela, yes the plug-in is fantastic. I think Jungle Frog is triallling it/using it too. Plums are my favourite!

    1. Thank you so much Sally. It does make things easier, still need to get used to it and have a bit more of a play. Thank you for visiting and for all your encouragement.

  8. Yeah, definitely working. Gorgeous photo and as soon as I saw Amaretto I was putty in your hands!

    1. Thank you Janice, sadly the Amaretto burns off a bit when cooking…still, always time for a tipple!

  9. Congratulations on the new site- it looks fantastic. And such a beautiful recipe to celebrate the new start with, too.
