Feeling All Grown Up...and a Little Lost in the Real Dot Com Sea, Introducing www.4RFood.com


Oh boy, what did I get myself into? My lovely web developer husband was kind enough to help me on my next step of the internet blogging yellow brick road and set me up with my very own dot com. I can hardly believe that I got the domain, and the site is up! Of course it is still in progress since I am learning as I go...man this stuff is complex.

Starting something completely new, that I have no mastery of, makes me feel like I ventured out of my little fishbowl for a swim in the ocean. The tide takes me away to another, disorienting, strange and different local that takes some getting used to.

So if you wanna see me baby step toward the next step in my journey, please check out www.4RFood.com, (oh my gosh, there is no Blogspot behind that, woo-hoo!) and let me know what you think!

Miss Lindsay!! Wow! It's great to see you breaking out and into the dot com world! Yes!! I think it's totally special that you, Heather, and I are getting ourselves out there even more. I enjoyed reading your latest blog posts, about your own journey and what it is that you're trying to do. And I enjoyed your new website so much! I love the review of the pie crust (I've always wondered) and I'm now curious about the one-dish dinners. That's my style! So what will happen to the blog? Will you maintain both? Love you girlie.

Beware of Trader Joe's Imported Penne Pasta - Stow-Aways on Board

Prepare to be grossed out - yes, I know Halloween is over. This is serious. I do this for public health reasons, and because it made me want to swear off pasta and Trader Joe's for a long long long time. Doesn't that suck? Yes, yes it does.

A few days ago I made a sauce for pasta and grabbed the package of Trader Joe's Imported form Italy Penne. The water had not boiled yet, so I put down the package and then I noticed something moving. Black and moving. Lots of black and moving and some dead, black and not moving.

The completely sealed pasta bag crawled with who knows what kind of little black bugs (see picture below and fill me in if you know), made me lose my appetite. I got out my camera and shot these pictures, but the pre-flash made many of them hide (guess they don't like bright light).
I am sooo thankful that I hadn't just opened the package and poured the contents into the boiling water - how many times had I done that...not looked at pasta before pouring it…

321 Dough - Multi-Purpose Recipe, Repost of Recipe

For anyone who is interested in my 321 Super Secret Dough, here is the recipe. I hope you all try it! It only has six simple ingredients and takes minutes to make. This dough can be transformed into homemade pizza, rustic artisan-style bread, crispy breadsticks, savory flatbread, mini calzones (pizza balls), and much more. Even better, it can be made days in advance and kept covered in the fridge to be used at a later date. I call it the 321 recipe because it has 3 cups of flour, 2 teaspoons of yeast, sugar and salt, and 1 2/3 cups of water. 


• 3 Cups AP Flour
• 2 Teaspoons Yeast
• 2 Teaspoons Kosher Salt
• 2 Teaspoons Sugar
• 1 2/3 Cups Lukewarm Purified Water

1. Place the flours, yeast, salt, and sugar in a large bowl and mix with a fork until ingredients are evenly distributed.
2. Add the water and stir with a spoon until flour mixture is evenly wet (about a minute). Cover with a clean dishtowel and let sit for about 2 hours in a draft free area.
3. You can use the dough at this point, or …

Ode to Coffee, Something I Never Thought I Would Love SO Much

The signs have clearly been there - my favorite ice cream flavor since childhood: Coffee (even better yet with toffee crunch pockets hidden inside), but until relatively recently I have not been a coffee drinker (babies and the lack of sleep that come with them helped the coffee gods lure me in). I passed up numerous perfectly made Italian espressi with gorgeous deep caramel colored crema rising to the top (anyone have a time machine?), but now the day hasn't begun until the espresso machine does.
