Adding a new site to Laravel Homestead

If it has been a while since you set up the Laravel Homestead Vagrant you may have forgotten how to add new sites. Or maybe you have added new sites but they are not working. Below are the steps that always work for me on the Mac.

Add Whoops back to Laravel 5.2

So I have started to learn a great PHP framework called Laravel. Coming from Yii 1 was a bit of a learning curve but Laravel does seem like it has more features needed for enterprise development.
