This reciepe is directly lifted from the blog of the Always Awesome @schmutzie. You're Welcome.

Arrabiata Sauce

¼ cup olive oil

2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

1 tsp red pepper flakes

1 can diced tomatoes, drained

Fry the above ingredients minus the tomatoes together until the garlic is browned but not burnt.

Turn off heat and allow to cool for approximately one minute to avoid excess spatter during the next step.

Add the tomatoes and turn the heat back up to medium. Continue to cook the sauce for another 10 to 15 minutes.

Serve over spaghetti – I prefer the rice variety – or pasta of your choice.

When I am so moved, I also like to fry a diced onion with the garlic and add 1 tsp of oregano and a ½ tsp of basil when I add the tomatoes.

Olivia's Story: As told by Tracy Lynn Kaply ( all rights (and Pie!) reserved

A Story For Olivia

Posted By Tracy on December 2nd, 2010 Once upon a time there was a girl. She was not a princess, because she had a backbone and thought that waiting around for someone to rescue you instead of doing things for yourself was more than sort of stupid.

She also felt positive that thinking a guy was a suitable life partner because he wandered around the place trying to get random women to try on this shoe he found was a road to disaster, and also, such a guy was probably a pervert with a shoe fetish.

The girl felt pretty strongly that sitting around bitching about stuff was useless, and so she determined that A) she was gonna do stuff and B) if she found someone she liked, then yay, but she wasn’t putting her life on hold for that shit.

The girl went on to do many things. She traveled all over the world, she worked at a lot of different types of jobs, she learned a lot of interesting things and meet many people.

She devoted a fair part of her time to making the world a better place and an equal amount of time to doing stuff that made her happy.

And in the long run, she was happy and productive, and life was good.
