RDTOD Favorites of 2016

I love sharing recipes and nutrition tips on the blog. I also love cooking, baking, reading, YouTube, and so much more. I started a new series this year where I share my monthly favorites. Here are your top six monthly favorites.



The December monthly favorites focused on holiday baking. There are a ton of baking ideas, recipes, and videos. There are also tips for holiday entertaining.





This monthly favorites has tons of tips and recipes for getting ready for the holidays. There are great ideas for preparing Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. How do you roast a turkey? There a great infographic to help. And, there are entertaining tips you can use all holiday season.



In October, I was in full cold weather mode. The favorites this month include how to boil the perfect egg, The Great British Bake Off, soup recipes for the cooler weather, and one of my favorite encouraging quote.



In August, I was in back-to-school mode. I featured some great articles and videos on basic kitchen skills, highlighted Julia Child's kitchen, and featured a few articles on blogging. I was also featured on our local news. You can check out the clip; you never know what's going to happen on live, unscripted television.



In July, I highlighted food trends and baking tips and videos. I read two encouraging and challenging books I read in the Summer. Do you find that you read more in the Summer? Or, is that just me?




In March, I provided recipes and tips for Easter and Mardi Gras. Being from Louisiana makes these food holidays extra special. I feature a quick and easy King Cake recipe. And, I share my current favorite podcast.

Favorite Cooking Classes 2016

I learned to cook from my family, mostly my Mom. I remember baking with grandmother from a young age. I love watching cooking and baking shows and competitions on television. I've also read a few cookbooks for recipe ideas and inspiration. Does anyone else read through a cookbook?


There's something about hands-on, in-person cooking instruction. You get to talk with an expert and get feedback if you're doing something right . . . or wrong. I had a list of foods that I wanted to learn how to make, and I wanted to learn from an expert. So, I took a few cooking classes, and you followed along with me. This year, I learned to make pasta, decorating cakes and cookies, and much more. 

Here are your favorite seven posts I wrote about cooking class. Check them out for cooking tips and recipe ideas. 










I have a running list of things I want to learn to make. What are you hoping to learn to cook or bake in 2017?
