After a lot of deliberation, a lot of procrastination, pestering my friends for advice, and then more deliberation, Half-Baked Housewife is getting a new name, a new look, and a new home. 



  [haf-beykt, hahf-]  Show IPA
insufficiently cooked.
not completed; insufficiently planned or prepared: a half-baked proposal for tax reform.
lacking mature judgment or experience; unrealistic.


I chose the original name to reflect my, um, laissez-fare approach to housekeeping. And for some reason, I totally underestimated how many people would assume it was a stoner reference. For the record: I don't smoke. This isn't a pot blog. And the only thing hidden in my brownies are Oreo cookies.

Seriously, though, I found that some people were shying away from cross-promotions because of the name. As someone who wears ripped pajamas to take the trash out to the curb, I was surprised that I actually gave a crap about what people thought -- but I do. So it's changing.

From today on, you can find all the HBH recipes -- and lots of new ones -- at Mom on a Wire.

I love the new name because it ties together the crazy balancing act of having two toddlers and running two businesses from home, while still trying to feed my family something semi-healthy every night and maybe occasionally attempt one of the 120923710293 projects I've pinned on Pinterest. 

There are also a lot of book reviews on the new site, because I've inexplicably decided I need to read more.

While I won't be updating this site, I'm leaving it up -- there are hundreds of pins linking to it on Pinterest, and dead links just bum me out. You have no idea how giddy I get when someone pins one of my recipes, so as a thank-you, the adobo pulled pork and all its friends will live on :)

One last favor: Can you like my new page on Facebook? Okay, now we're officially besties.
