We had months of recipes we had been working on that were completely lost on our old website. Looking for a theme that would allow people to easily navigate our recipes and simultaneously host our blog, we found the Blossom Cookery theme.
We really loved the theme, but had no idea where to begin to migrate our site over. We reached out for support and were connected with Nabin.
Nabin was prompt, professional, knowledgeable, and above all else really listened to what we were looking for in our website. He paid attention to what was important to us and put it together exactly the way we were hoping. We appreciated the in-depth training and his patience with all of our questions.
