1 ball

I am having visions today. My psychic powers are at an all time high. My crystal ball is going bizerk!. And I dropped all of my Tarot Cards.

They all tell me there are new things afoot at More Thyme Than Dough.

Yes. I have made some changes to More Thyme Than Dough.

And today I want to let you know what these new features are so that you can use them today.

First ~ Subscribe

The subscribe button is back on the right side of the page and under the blue Follow Me On Twitter Button.  If you wish to be the first to know when a new post and recipe are up, just enter your email address and hit the button. It is as simple as that. You will get advance notice of a new post.

And rest assured, I do not mail you anything but a new post notice and I will never ever sell your address to anyone.

1 PSecond ~  Pinterest

If you scroll over any picture on MTTD you will see a ‘Pin It’ button. You can click on the picture and it will automatically be posted on Pinterest. How easy is that? I know some of you have been posting MTTD pictures on Pinterest for several months. Now it is just easier.

And I very much thank those of you who have been doing that already.

1 Social MediaThird ~  Social Media

Scroll down to the end of the entire page and under the green Print Friendly button you will see various social media buttons.  Now you can send a post or recipe to any or all of your Social Media with just one click of a button. How easy is that?

If you do not see the symbol for a  Social Media that you use, just click the + sign at the end of the list. You should find it there.

1 printerFourth ~ Printing Posts and Recipes

This feature has been on MTTD since almost its inception.

But for those that may not have known a print feature is available it is worth mentioning.

This particular print feature has many options and different ways to print out either a post or a recipe that you may not be familiar with. So today I want to spend a few minutes going through all of the options since I have not done so in many years. And MTTD has so many new readers now so I want to make sure you all know how to use the Print feature.

First An Alert

Now with the ‘PinIt’ button, be sure to click on the right side of the green “Friendly Print” button at the very bottom of every post/recipe. Otherwise you will send a coy of the Print Friendly button to Pinterest.

This is how the Print Friendly button looks:  pf-button-big

Once you hit that green button you have several options.

You can print the entire post and recipe exactly as it is with pictures and all. Or you can send out just the post, or just the recipe. You control that.

Or you can print as a PDF file.

Using the PDF file gives you many, many  options. One, you can print without the pictures by checking the “Remove Images” box to the right on the gray bar.

Second, you can delete parts of the post or recipe you do not want to print by simply scrolling over the text. When you do that a yellow highlight appears over the text.  Whatever is highlighted in yellow you can delete by simply clicking on the yellow box.

If you accidently delete something you did not want to delete, go up to the gray bar on top and hit, “Undo.”

You can also hit the send button and email the entire post from the Print Friendly page.

I hope you find these features useful.

If you have other or more questions just ask and I will try not to confuse you even more. Play around with that print feature.

Now, Onward Cooks!!!
Featured Recipe    Pan-Seared Steak with Onion and Worcestershire

IMG_8484

All of my psychic powers tell me you will love today’s recipe.

This is Martha Stewart at her very best; simple, quick, and delicious! This recipe came from her Everyday Food magazine.

And since I used flank steak this recipe is budget friendly too ~ only $3.24 per person.

The recipe can be doubled; in fact I halved Martha’s recipe today.

This is what you will need for 2 people:

¾ pound flank, sirloin, or skirt steak

½ medium onion

2 teaspoons oil – divided

Big splash of Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon butter – divided

2 tablespoons parsley

Salt and pepper to taste

IMG_8428

Here is what you do:

Season the steak with salt and pepper.

IMG_8434

Thinly slice the onion and chop the parsley.

IMG_8430

Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil over medium heat and then cook the steal until dark brown about 3 -5 inches on each side, for medium rare – depending on thickness.

IMG_8438

When steak is done to your liking, let the steak rest under a loose foil tent.

IMG_8445

While the steak rests add the other teaspoon of oil and half of the butter to the pan.

IMG_8446

Scrape up all the dark bits and pieces of the steak and mix into the butter.

IMG_8450

Add the onion and cook until tender.

IMG_8452

When the onions are nicely browned add the Worcestershire sauce and the rest of the butter. Mix into the onions.

IMG_8456

Thinly slice the steak across the grain……..

IMG_8453

Place half of the steak on each of two plates and top with the onion. Sprinkle the parsley over the steak.

My Tarot Cards tell me that you will serve this steak with some grilled vegetables and/or a potato of your choice.

Bon appétit!!!
