October's Top 10 Roundup






October  seemed like such a busy month to me. 

Did it for you?

I honestly have no idea why. I don't have little ones to come up with costumes for, I didn't have a party to plan, I didn't even have family dinner every week.


But for some reason I just felt so busy.

Oh well, I am sure it will be nothing compared to what is coming up right?

I mean we have Thanksgiving and then Christmas, and I swear the older I get the faster it all flies by. 

Which, by the way, drives me absolutely crazy. 

I mean really? It is a proven fact that the older we get the more we appreciate things, everything!! 

Yet it seems that it all goes by so much more quickly. Couple that with the fact that, as I get older, my memory seems to be getting shorter and shorter? 

Seriously not fair!! 

Yes, I am pouting. 

OK, I am done.

Anyway, the up coming two months are going to be filled with food, fun, and family. That makes me a very happy girl. I am excited to get into my kitchen and whip up some awesome holiday dishes for you. So stay tuned!!

But until then, here is a round up of October most viewed recipes.


  1. Pumpkin Applesauce
  2. Spicy Sausage and Sweet Potato Soup
  3. Lightened Up Broccoli Cheddar Soup
  4. Pumpkin BBQ Sauce
  5. Cheddar Biscuits with Peppered Ham Gravy
  6. It's the Great Stuffed Pumpkin
  7. Roasted Tomato and Garlic Pizza Sauce
  8. Slow Cooker Balsamic Pot Roast
  9. Easy Garlic Pizza Dough 




Have a wonderful weekend!!

  3. I love Broccoli Cheddar Soup and whenever I go to Panera (do you have those by you??), that is what I get. In a bread bowl, too! Yum.

  6. I actually don't remember much of October. My birthday was just 2 weeks ago and turning 30 was HUGE for me... but I don't remember many days before and the days after. That's so odd! --Pumpkin Applesauce sounds amazing!! I will have to give it a try!

  10. October was definitely a very busy month for me and I shudder at the thought of how busy the next two months will be. These are some great recipes as we transition into the Fall and Winter.

  11. Unfortunately I know precisely what you are saying and mean by time seems to fly by even more quickly the older you get--and the memory gets shorter! Which reminds me-----I have to somehow get into that new state insurance website and confirm that I really want the insurance I picked before I do not have any at all---Nov and Dec will be kind of hectic--My Mom's 91st birthday, Thanksgiving, my nieces baby shower-but first things first--convincing my cat that it really isn't 12 am it is 11 am!!!!

  13. Agreed! October had flown by, and now its November......I guess it's time to think about Christmas soon! (yes, I said the C word!).
    That Brocolli Cheddar soup sounds great - so warming and delicious for these cold evenings xxx

  14. Nice post. October went by fast for me too and I know next October will go by even faster. I love cooking and even more I love eating. My wife and I are very healthy eaters. I think I am going to get some good ideas from a few recipes from this blog. Thanks for sharing.

  15. What a fantastic idea to "lighten up" a traditional broccoli cheese soup recipe. I love the taste of this type of soup but generally refrain from eating it because of the high fat content. Your version looks like an amazing one I would love to try out. I would probably try it with veggie stock instead of chicken because I'm a vegetarian. I'll let you know how it turns out! ;)

  16. I agree--October went way too fast! And to think that we are just now heading into the busy holiday season that ALWAYS flies by. I have to check out all of your recipes. They sound delicious. Definitely looking forward to trying the broccoli cheese soup.
