I talked about Food Network Magazine for my Fantastical Feature this month.

I participated in both the Crazy Cooking Challenge and Secret Recipe Club this month. I posted Sour Cream Blueberry-Blackberry Muffins for CCC and Crunchy Buttermilk Baked Chicken for SRC.

I want to revisit my resolutions again and update on how well/awful I'm doing on them:
  • Drink more water - I have gone to about 16 oz. a day again...May's goal is at least 24 oz. per day, but leaning more towards 32 oz!
  • Eat more fruit - I've eaten a TON of dried fruit lately, but again, not enough. I need to make smoothies. Seriously.
  • Exercise 5x a week - I have been sporadic with exercising this month. You can follow my "journey" over on my personal blog.
  • Get on a schedule - I am doing really well with this one!
  • Catch up on adding the printable feature to old recipes. - I didn't do any work on old recipes and printables :(
  • Plan garden and get started indoors. ASAP. - oh the life of an army wife, I'm not sure if I should plant or not....I have a feeling that once I do, we'll come down on orders and be leaving. *sigh*
  • Work on emptying bookmarked recipes. - I have been blowing this one out of the water lately. I am up to mid-November...which is great because I started with recipes saved from last summer.
  • Leave reviews {comments} for recipes I've tried where I got them. - I did a little of this during the beginning of the month. I hope to keep on my toes more with this one.
  • Look for duplicate recipes in the ones I have in the binders - Didn't get around to this.
  • Work on finding out which store locally has the cheapest food without sacrificing quality. - Decided that driving out to Tops isn't worth it. I can get better quality at Walmart rather than the's just a matter of NO IMPULSE BUYS!
  • **new** Update Blog Love page.
  • **new** Use breadmaker, cake pop maker, and KitchenAid pasta attachment.
  • **new** Organize kitchen cabinets.
  • **new** Implement baskets in organizing fridge and maybe pantry.

If you missed them, you can find Sunday Social, Oh, How Pinteresting Weds., and Tasty Thursdays (formerly known as Twisted Thursdays) by scrolling all the way down and finding the little label cloud. Click on whichever you want to see :)
