Savor the Sweet Bites of Life

Savor the Sweet Bites of life...what I'm loving October 2017

Happy October! Hard to believe Halloween is this week and then suddenly Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before we know it! I hope everyone is enjoying life to it’s fullest! Taking time to love the ones you’re with 🙂 Let’s chat for a few minutes about what’s going on in my world!

We just finished watching “The Handmaid’s Tale” on Hulu. Apparently it is based off a book? I bet that it’s a great book, the series was fantastic! Speaking of books, I finished “All the Ugly and Wonderful Things”. Whoa. I need to talk about this one with someone! Not sure how I feel. Any good books you’ve read lately?

Know a super special friend who needs this mug in their life? The perfect way to brighten their day!

Every once in awhile I go back and pick a few recipes to update the photos. And this Lemon garlic pasta needed some love! Plus, we make it all the time it seemed only fitting that it gets a makeover. We served ours up with some Parmesan Tilapia, but a grilled chicken would be great too (or just a salad and garlic bread)!

Also, don’t forget about these Pumpkin Scones. My middle daughter LOVES these and I know she would be thrilled if I baked up a batch this weekend for her! The problem is, I’d eat WAY too many…good thing they freeze well!

If you don’t watch Heather, then what ARE you doing? I look forward to seeing her new videos, and I’m sorry, but the CrossFit one? So much truth (coming from a crossfitter myself, haha).

In case you missed it this week, I shared three delicious Halloween treats. Spooky Red Velvet Eyeballs, Butterfinger Frankenstein Cupcakes, and Halloween Peanut Butter Cookie Cups. I think you’ll love each one of them!

I also added a new video to these Peach Pie Bars. Recently Lucky Leaf put out a new ebook (it’s FREE) with 20 delicious recipes using pie filling. I think you’ll want to check it out!

Want to know what’s coming soon? Well, not only am I working on updating some old recipes and photos…but I’ve got a wonderful Chocolate Cobbler coming to the blog this week. Apparently it’s a southern dish, and the only way I can describe it is “Chocolate Heaven.” You’ll just have to trust me and come back later this week! I’ve also got a whole bunch of soup and chili recipes…are you ready for some of these? Like Roasted Tomato Soup and Pumpkin Chili? Please say yes!

My friend Jocelyn recently put out a new cookbook, Cheesecake Love. I’ll be sharing one of the recipes from her cookbook soon. Y’all know how I love cheesecake bars…this one is pretty amazing!

One last thought. Help.

As I’ve mentioned before my daughter and I have recently gone vegetarian. Please tell me your favorite vegetarian meals, lunches, etc. And how on earth will I get through Thanksgiving without turkey (and don’t you dare say Tofu, blech).

  1. The Handmaids Tale was soooo good! I read the book first and the show did an awesome job of bringing it to life. That parmesan tilapia sounds so delicious!!

    I read the book you mentioned, All the Ugly and Wonderful Things, and I am at a loss too. I didn’t know where the book was leading and it made me uncomfortable to read it at times. I picked it up specifically because you mentioned it and I am always up for a good recommendation, but this one was not what I expected because the topic is so taboo. Interesting, but I don’t know what her other books would be like after reading this one. If you have any more suggestion, please let me know! I would have never read it without your input.

    • I think it would make a GREAT book club book, because there are so many feelings about it. Mainly I just feel sad. I’d be curious about her other books too! I need some good books as well. I just read Descent by Tim Johnston. It was good. Predictable though.
