Hey everyone!  That time of the month again for my round up and faves!  Are you full steam ahead into fall?  I know I am!  I’ve already had 100 pumpkin spice lattes, 10 pumpkin smoothies and 6 pumpkin pies.  Just kiddin’.  It’s actually 99 lattes, lol 😀 Another busy month around here.  Let’s get on with it—> 


Chanterelle Mushroom Crostini with Ricotta, Thyme and Honey – I was gifted the most amazing chanterelle mushrooms and made this crostini.  So good.  Wine and I’m set!

You guys, I watched the new It movie!  It was so good (and so scary) and I practically covered my eyes the whole time.  Would I watch again, though?  Totally!  And I may just do that before Halloween.  Hubby read the book by Stephen King before we watched the movie and I can only imagine how scary that would be to read before bed.

Will & Grace on NBC.  I haven’t seen the new show yet, just advertisements, but I know I’m going to love it because I loved the show years ago.  Favourite character?  Karen played by Megan Mullally, hands down.  She is so funny and dry.  Who is your favourite character?

Gothom on Fox.  I’ve mentioned this show before in my monthly faves and a new season is back on.  Woot woot! It’s basically a Batman show, but Batman is only a teenager right now. The show has all the characters you love stirring up trouble.

Wentworth, Season 5, is now released on Netflix.  Are you a fan of Orange is the New Black?  I did watch an episode or two of that one, but really enjoy Wentworth more so.  Totally recommend this one; it moves really fast and its uber entertaining!


I’m such a fan of Sam Smith and totally rock out his music in the car or shower.  He has a new song released – ‘Too Good at Goodbyes’.  Another home run with this one.  And for the record, I can totally sing 😀 #Not

‘Good Old Days’ by Macklemore Featuring Kesha.  Great upbeat chill song and cool video too!


I just realized recently that I’ve never told you about Ricardo Magazine.  If you are a magazine lover and a food lover like me, then this one is for you!  It’s such a high quality magazine jam packed with delicious recipes.  It’s a Canadian magazine so that’s a definite bonus for me 😉 I made bagels this past weekend from the recent edition and they were too easy to make and dangerously good.  If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen the shenanigans….and, if you don’t follow me, ya better get on that  😉

You guys!  I just picked up Super Nintendo Classic Edition.  It was released September 29th and I got up extra extra early to be at the store to pick one up.  Nerdy, right?  Fun?  Oh yeeeeah!  And for the records, hubby and I played that Friday night and I totally kicked his butt 😀 Hehehe…that doesn’t happen very often, so he must have been having an off night….or let me win.  What was your favourite video game growing up?

Hope you’ve enjoyed my Monthly Round up and Favourites for September 2017!  What has been your faves this past month?

Someone needs his beauty rest….he had a busy weekend, ya know 😉

    I’ve gotta get my hands on that Ricardo magazine!! I am still in love with that pad thai you made from the Juice Truck – I will be trying it real soon! OH – and I LOOOVE Gotham. I feel like it’s totally underrated! So glad it’s back! We’ve got some similar tastes 😉

  2. Milena | Craft Beering says:

    I am with you about Karen:) and I am seriously concerned that you have somehow managed to ingest 99 pumpkin spice lattes already, lol. What a cool month food wise! Still totally into the chanterelle crostini and the almost Pad Thai. Looove them! Mushrooms are a Fall food to me, not sure why the association. Have a great October girl! Waiting for some more deliciousness from you.

    omg your pup is so cute!! Also, I NEED that crostini (and probably a Super Nintendo Classic, too!). I was never that into Will and Grace when it was first on, but I’ve been dying laughing at the old ones I’ve caught recently and the previews for the new one, so I think I need to start watching!

    • Girl Heart Food says:

      So funny, right? You should definitely look for that magazine – it really is awesome and I can understand your magazine addiction, lol. Have a great week (and October) too, Kelsie 🙂

    Sounds like you had another delicious and fun month! I really want to see the new IT…I’ve heard mixed reviews, so glad you liked it! And YES to Will and Grace! We dvr’d it but haven’t watched the first episode yet. And my husband and I were just talking about getting super nintendo, though it sells out SO fast around here, I’m not sure if I could get my hands on it! If only I kept my original one from years ago… 🙂 Hope you have a great week!

  5. Cheyanne @ No Spoon Necessary says:

    You definitely had a very tasty month, Dawn! I want a few of everything, followed by 700 pounds of those peanuts! 😉 I haven’t seen the new IT movie, but hubs wanted to see it. I’m a weirdo who didn’t think the original was scary, so I had doubts about the new one, but if you say it’s awesome, I’m going to have to watch it!! I LOVE Karen from Will and Grace, she’s the best part! And Wentworth is one of my FAVORITE tv shows!! Thank you so much for including my martini here, doll! You da Best! Xoxo
