Addition, June 2, 2018, 3:54 PM EDT: The page I linked to before stopped working right. Here's one that does work right:

Current conditions at Youngstown, Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport (KYNG)




Today, I finally got tired of how sluggish Weather.com is in my web browser.

So, I found this nice, fast alternative:

National Weather Service Forecast for Hubbard, OH

At first, I couldn't figure out how to make it display Fahrenheit instead of Celsius degrees, which was bad, because Celsius sucks for weather.

Fortunately, I was able to make it display Fahrenheit by changing the above page's URL to say "unit=2" instead of "unit=1".

I recently posted this to Non24.com:

Blackstrap Molasses, Iron and Ferritin Deficiency, Menstrual Health, and a Yummy Dessert Recipe


This other page says:

"In fact, iron deficiency is the most common and widespread nutritional disorder in the world, according to the WHO, which estimates that some 2 billion people - or 30% of the world's entire population - have anemia, which is caused by lack of iron."

So, I just thought I ought to post about this here, in case it might be helpful to anyone.


I also blogged about two other good blackstrap molasses-containing recipes I recently tried:

My slightly modified version of River Cottage soda bread is good even with blackstrap molasses

My imperfect modified version of a blackstrap molasses gingerbread cake seems to need a lot more spices

Here's a recipe I found today which I haven't tried yet. I just thought it was neat (and convenient) that it's actually possible to make real pasta in the oven, without having to boil it on the stovetop, nor settle for substitutes like my microwaved oatmeal "pasta"!

Recipe: Chicken & Tomato No-Boil Pasta Bake
From TheKitchn.com

When I make this, I'm probably going to try adding a small amount of blackstrap molasses to the recipe.

I suspect it might turn out OK, since blackstrap molasses surprisingly (in my opinion) slightly improves the taste of my usual brand of vegetable juice, which contains primarily tomato juice. (I edited out the brand name because I probably ought to switch to something organic.)

I found this days ago, but haven't made it yet:

Amish Tomato Bread
From Recipes.SparkPeople.com

I already have almost every ingredient except yeast.

This is another thing I want to try putting a small amount of blackstrap molasses in, since it seems like blackstrap molasses + tomato juice is a surprisingly good combination.

Blackstrap molasses + my usual brand of vegetable juice, which contains primarily tomato juice, is still one of my favorite ways to consume blackstrap molasses. Too bad that brand isn't organic, or I'd mention its name here.
