Welcome to Let’s Get Lost

Hello! I’m Rebecca Blackwell, a recipe developer, food photographer, and food and travel writer. While I have cooked professionally, mostly I am a home cook and baker who writes for other home cooks and bakers. Also, my husband and I are full time travelers who live in a 5th wheel RV.

Our home on wheels! If you look closely, you’ll see me on the back deck. This photo was taken in December, 2020 in Lyons, Colorado.

So what is this newsletter about?

I have been cooking and baking professionally and just for the sheer pleasure of it for nearly 30 years, and writing and publishing recipes since 2013, so this newsletter includes recipes, of course.

But unlike my two recipe websites (ofbatteranddough.com and alittleandalot.com), this newsletter allows me to write and share what I want directly with everyone who want to read it. It’s a much more intimate exchange with no middleman and the only rules are the ones we make up as we go along. Also, no ads. 👏

The recipes in this newsletter are exclusive to the newsletter and not published on either of my websites.

In addition to writing about food, I also write about the people and places we meet on the road. My husband and I have two incredible 20-something daughters and lost our son, our oldest, to suicide in 2020. So, I occasionally write about loss and grief, and the complicated landscape of being a family when one of you is missing. These are the things I know the most about.

Every issue includes:

  • stories from the road

  • several new recipes that you won’t find on either of my recipe websites

  • useful (I hope!) tips and tricks

  • a monthly bake club challenge

  • recommendations for cookbooks, books, podcasts, and other things that I hope will be of interest to you

What will I get as a free subscriber?

As a free subscriber, you’ll receive 2 newsletters a month (24 issues a year) mostly sent out in the first two weeks of every month.

What else would I get if I paid to subscribe?

Paid subscribers receive three newsletter a month (36 issues a year) and access to the entire archive of issues and recipes. Subscribe for $5 a month or $50 a year.

Or, if you want to support my work more fully, you can be a founding member for $100 a month (or any amount over that: thank you!). Founding members receive exclusive content throughout the year.

Some housekeeping …. Or, RV keeping?

My cozy 7x4 foot kitchen! Question about my kitchen that I get asked the most: Is that a giant coffee pot by your sink? Nope. It’s a water filter. 🙂
