October Favorites

Welcome to RDtipoftheday's favorites October edition. This is my blog series that highlights some of the things I've been watching, reading, listening to, cooking, and eating. These are a few of my favorite things.

Eating & Cooking

I love to bake, so naturally I enjoy baking tips. Heres a great tip on knowing when the cream puff dough is ready. Also, the hedgehogs are so cute!

The Fall weather is so nice! It makes me want to eat warm, comforting soups. Here are a few of my favorite: slow cooker chicken tortilla soup, poblano pepper soup, and tomato basil soup. I think soups pair well with sliders like my chicken jalapeño sliders. Stay warm. Enjoy!

I was looking back at holiday pictures. I love this turkey. He's ready to hold some homemade ranch or hummus. I'm already prepping for Thanksgiving and Christmas baking and cooking. When do you start holiday food prepping?

I love watching baking and cooking. Right now, I'm enjoying Kids Halloween and Halloween Baking Championship and the Kids Halloween Baking Championship on Food Network.

I'm loving the Great British Bake Off (#GBBO). Check out my Twitter as I'll be featuring some of the hilarious GIFs from the show.

Do you ever find yourself trapped in a YouTube rabbit hole? I do, especially with celebrities lip syncing or playing silly games. This is my current favorite with Mellissa McCarthy lip-syncing. Fast forward to 5:45 and just wait for it. It's full of Fall, animals, laughter, and glitter. What could be better?

I attended the Belong Tour and found it super encouraging. The themes for the year are: faith, friendship, and purpose. I was invited by my friend Amberly. We both enjoy reading Shauna and Jen's writing. Then, I invited more of my friends. Won some discounted tickets. It was great! It was a weekend full of girl talk, picnicking, truth, and encouragement.

I really like this quote by Marianne Williamson from A Return to Love, 

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shin, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

So, let's be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous. Let's shine and encourage others to do the same!
