So on Friday maltyk and I and a few other friends are having a little get together and we’re going to attempt to do contour make up a la Kim K. Also we will be drinking. And then we’ll go out with our amazing faces and blow the minds of the people of Portland.

I am so so so excited I can’t even. I cannot EVEN.

I shared my go-to no-knead pizza dough recipe with OnMilwaukee, so now I can share it with you.  I use this dough for baking steel & pan pizzas, and it’s awesome.  I’ve tweaked it until I got to a recipe that has numbers anyone can remember, and it’s dead simple.

I like to use “00” flour, which is the finest a flour can be milled, but this dough really works better with all-purpose flour (I prefer King Arthur). A dough’s “hydration” is the percentage of flour to liquid. With this dough, we’re working with a hydration of about 67 percent, and using the fine-milled “00” flour results in a dough that’s just a little too wet.

This recipe calls for a 12-cup food processor fitted with a dough blade, but it can just as easily be made with a mixing bowl and a wooden spoon. The most important thing is that the dough is thoroughly mixed and all of the water incorporated.

Basic No-Knead Pizza Dough
  • 450g all purpose flour
  • 10g kosher salt
  • 10g sugar
  • 10g quick-rise yeast
  • 300g water
  • 10g olive oil
  1. Put flour, salt, sugar and yeast in the bowl of the food processor. Pulse once to combine. Add water and oil.
  2. Turn on food processor and run until the the dough comes together and starts to follow the blade around the bowl, about 20 seconds. Add a little flour if it’s not coming together. Run for an additional 20 seconds.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and bring it together into a ball. 

This recipe makes enough dough for two 12-inch pies or one pan pie. If you’re making two pies, split the dough in half and put in separate lightly oiled containers that can contain the dough once it doubles. Refrigerate at least one day, up to five. It’ll taste better three days in.If you’re making a pan pizza, put the dough in an oiled 12-inch cast iron pan and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise at room temperature for 24 hours.

Def gonna try this and see how it compares to our usual recipe!

Ok, so thegorydetails tagged me and you gotta give the people what they want, right? So here’s 6 pictures of me where I feel beautiful.

1) In Vegas when I was 24. This was probably the zenith of my babe-atude. Loved that dress.

2) From our engagement pictures. You know, when I got engaged to my cat?

3) I could have picked a lot of wedding pictures! I definitely felt beautiful that day! This was from when I was getting ready. So much fun and excitement in that moment.

4) From our honeymoon. Always liked this pic.

5) 8.5 months pregnant! I was very fortunate to have a really easy pregnancy and to feel really cute for most of it. I went out for my best friend’s bachelorette party this night and I felt so silly being out at bars while hugely pregnant, but it was super fun.

6) With Max last winter when we were picking out a tree. Kind of an epic hair day, not gonna lie.

I’m supposed to tag 6 people, but I feel like everyone has already been tagged!! But I’ll try. Apologies if you’re double tagged!

Things to remember about Max at very-nearly-14-months:

• He LOVES cars, trucks, tractors and all other things with wheels. He likes to go up to cars and point at the wheels and, for some reason, the license plates. He points and giggles, “heheheh” to himself. If you have any insight into what’s so funny about a license plate, definitely let me know.

• Jeff’s parents gave him a book about “things that go” and he is OBSESSED with it. He basically wants to look at it all day every day. He turns the pages and points at different things, saying “dat! Dat! Dat!”

• Other favorite books are currently Boo-Hoo Baby, Dinosaur Roar, Hop on Pop and Go Dog Go. He knows when his favorite parts are coming up and gets all excited. It’s super cute.

• He’s big into hugging Wallace. He puts his arm around him and lays his head on him. Ridiculous.

There are a million other things, too, but that’s good for the moment. He’s pretty wonderful.

Owl update…

Almost 2 hours later the owl was still sitting there in the tree above the run. I went inside and a few minutes later I heard he chickens making a racket again. So I went back out and the owl was gone. I think it must have swooped at them again. I already had closed them in the coop (it has an outside part, but it’s enclosed) so they were fine, but they’re all freaked out.

I’m guessing the owl is still nearby, but I couldn’t spot it in the trees.

I did some reading about Barred Owls and they’re not very likely to kill chickens, because they just aren’t that big! But I guess they can if they really want to. Apparently they’ll snap their necks!

Not sure what the long term plan is, but I’m not letting the chickens out in the run for now…

Going into the teepee and then running out as fast as possible= SO FUNNY!

The owl from yesterday is back and it just tried to attack the chickens!! I feel like that’s very ambitious. Most of the chickens are bigger than it and even the smallest ones are at least the same size.

Still, it swooped down at them and they all freaked out and now they’re hanging out in the coop like, “uh, we’re just going to stay inside now thanks” and the owl is sitting menacingly in the tree above the run.

It watches me when I walk under it but hasn’t gone anywhere for 10 minutes now.

It has such spooky eyes!
