rollin’ in the deep (whole wheat cheddar crackers)

Posted on Apr 7, 2011 in Career, Fitness, Food

Kind of a hodge-podge post here, but I’m trying to keep everyone up to date with the goings on in BTHRland!

Awesome April Blog Changes

Changes are rolling out!

On Monday, BTHR silently (but triumphantly) made the switch over to self-hosting. I’m currently trying to feel out all my newfound freedom. Lots of very cool things I can do now!

A notes on subscriptions: if you previously subscribed to BTHR through e-mail, you should have received a note with instructions to update your subscription. The old subscription service does not work with self-hosting.

Also, if you read BTHR through an RSS reader, it would be great if you could update your RSS feeds to this. Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to get content on the old feed, my new feed just has better tracking mechanisms.

Content changes are rolling, as well. If you look up towards the very tippy, top of the blog, you’ll see a new fleshed-out About section. I’ve added a pages for:

If you look to the far right of the navigation, you’ll also see a new link to the BTHR Store. I get a lot of product requests for items I use everyday and figured lumping it all together in an easy-to-browse Amazon store would be the way to go. I’ll be adding and changing my store frequently.

Run, run, run

You know what else rolled out? Pictures from my 5K last weekend. I had no idea I was a heel striker until I saw these. Huh!

Smiling cuz I totally smoked that old man in the last photo. :)

Food!

Remember when I used to write about food? I promise this all-consuming redesign won’t last forever and I’ll be back, better than ever and happily writing two food-filled posts a day.

I do have some food to rollllllll on out to you!

Whole wheat cheddar crackers. Basically these are Goldfish crackers. But I don’t have a mini goldfish cookie cutter. When I saw this recipe on Smitten Kitchen, I knew I had to jump on in, even though I’m without the proper cutter.

I usually post recipes right here on the blog—because I usually change something—but this was one occasion where I didn’t change a dang thing. And I’m glad I didn’t!

These were perfect. Crunchy, cheesy, a bit salty and perfect to satisfy the afternoon munchies. So head on over to here to Smitten Kitchen and make yourself some goldfish. Or not goldfish goldfish. Whatever shape, they still taste good. :)

  1. Yay for self-hosting! Everything still looks great around here, of course :)

    Those crackers look so tasty! I have GOT to buy a food processor!

  2. Hi,
    I think the new features on your site are really cool and it’s been something I’ve been wanting to do for a while. I started learning HTML and CSS a couple months ago and I have a good feel for the basics, but I’m still nervous about doing the self hosted thing. What kinds of skill did you need to be able to do the stuff you’re doing? Do you plan to use the basic layout of this theme or are you going to completely redesign eventually? Sorry for all the questions, I’m just so curious about what you did/know because I can see the changes happening! Thanks!

    • For the actual transfer, I paid WordPress to do it for me through Guided Transfer. There are lots of good guides and stuff out there if you don’t want to shell out the money, but I was way too nervous to deal with the databases, domain transfers and PHP and such.

      As far as the design, there will be a whollllleee new look coming (hopefully this weekend!). What I did was buy a theme from a theme site, and now I’m using my HTML/CSS skills to edit it to be exactly what I want. It is definitely a learning process. :D

      • Awesome! Yeah, I was going to do it all myself, but it’s my blog and I don’t want it to go horribly wrong so I understand why you paid them! I’m just so anxious to get Photoshop and learn a bit more CSS so I can finally have a professional looking site. I’m really excited for you!

  3. Those crackers look AWESOME! I much prefer the little flower cut to the traditional goldfish shape.

    If it’s possible, don’t forget to include your awesome Bondi Bands and your tiny spoons on the Amazon store. I had both of those items on my Christmas wishlist this year after having seen them on your blog. :)

  4. Those crackers look amazing! I like making crackers. They’re a lot easier than they seem…but then I gobble them up too fast.

  5. I’m a new reader and just wanted to say hi! I love your big smile in that picture! haha!
