Becky’s Bites of Life- September- A review of your favorite recipes from September and a little from my life! (i.e. beautiful fall pictures!) (Plus a review of the movie, The Stray and my favorite movie snacks.)
Happy fall y’all! I LOVE THE FALL so much! On Sunday, we took a drive through Provo Canyon and we saw the prettiest fall trees I have seen in my life! I’ll include some pictures below. Something about the fall makes me so happy! I love fall baking too. A few of my favorite fall recipes are these Pumpkin Snickerdoodles, Salted Caramel Apple Pie Bars, and Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. What are your favorite recipes to make in the fall?
The Most Popular Recipe in September was…
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Energy Bites
My kids and I just had this again this morning for our snack. It’s so delicious! Have you tried it yet?
And my most popular recipe of the month that wasn’t posted in September was your favorite marinade recipe! The amazing Marinated Grilled Pork Chops! I think I’m going to make it again this week but see how it is with chicken.
My Favorite Post in September was…
Sweet and Salty White Chocolate Popcorn
The perfect movie snack or treat for any day! This is so yummy! We especially love the peanut butter M&M’s in it. It’s a super quick recipe!
Halloween is coming soon! These Bat Oreos are a fun and super easy way to get in the Halloween spirit. Plus it’s super tasty!
Becky’s Bites of Life:
September was a great month! With two of my kids in school, we are starting to get more into a routine which is so nice!
Here’s one of the pictures from our canyon drive last night. (Provo Canyon.) It’s so pretty it almost seems fake but it’s 100% real! My fall heart has never been happier! Everything we saw was GORGEOUS!
This is one of the prettiest shades of red I’ve seen!
My sweet baby Luke turned 1! Time flies you guys! He is slowly but too quickly changing from a baby to a toddler. I’m so grateful for Luke. He fills my days with incredible happiness. He is so quick to smile, loves me so deeply and is a joy to be around. I feel so blessed to be his mommy! I think he loved his birthday and he certainly loved his cake!
I’m no cake expert but I loved making this for him! He sweetly would take the frosting off with his fingers and lick it. He did get into the cake a bit too. I used Baking with Blondie’s chocolate cake recipe and my favorite vanilla buttercream frosting recipe. (To get the ombre look, I took some of the frosting and put it in two bowls, colored it the different shade of blue, piped it on and then smoothed it all out.) It was delicious! (I made another little cake for the rest of us.)
A Review of the Movie, The Stray
On Wednesday, I had an amazing evening attending the premiere of the new movie, The Stray. It is a true story about how a stray dog found a family and changed each of their lives forever. My husband and I really enjoyed it. It’s the perfect movie to take your family to see! It’s directed by Mitch Davis (The Other Side of Heaven). It teaches how help can come from the most unlikely places, prayers can get answered in strange ways and one dog can change everything. The Stray features Sarah Lancaster and Michael Cassidy. I was fangirling to meet Sarah Lancaster. She is in quite a few Hallmark movies and I’m a big fan of those movies!
The Stray, distributed by Purdie Distribution, is in theaters today, October 6th is in 600 theaters nationwide. You can find a theater near you HERE. This is such a wonderful and uplifting movie to take your family to see!
And since we’re on the topics of movies, for movies you watch at home I wanted to share a few of my favorite treats to make for movie night:
Sweet & Salty White Chocolate Popcorn
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Popcorn
Homemade Graham Crackers (the perfect, mess-free snack for kids! It’s a softer, tastier more cookie-like recipe than store-bought graham crackers.)
Easy Funfetti Chocolate Chip Cookies
What are your favorite movie snacks?
Thoughts/Things I’m Loving Lately:
-One of Luke’s birthday presents was this fun Musical Duck toy. He loves it and so does his sister! I’d say it’s a great present for kids ages 1-4.
-I’m a little late to hearing about Collagen Peptides but I thought I would try it out since postpartum hair loss has been a pain! I’ve been using it for a few weeks so far and I think it’s helping! Have any of you used it? Let me know what you think of it!
What products or things are you loving lately? I’d love to hear!
What things are you looking most forward to this October? Do you know what you or your kids will be dressing up as for Halloween? I’m still trying to decide!
Stay tuned for more fun and delicious recipes! I have some yummy recipes coming your way!
