Fantastic Ideas in the Kitchen: O, The Oprah Magazine Cookbook

I love exploring new recipes and cookbooks. The good ideas can come from any where. A popular magazine to an innovative blogger. I recently came across a cookbook that had a variety of recipes from different influences and chefs. The recipes range from easy to make to hard. This cookbook is called O, The Oprah Magazine Cookbook. All the recipes featured are from various chefs that submitted these recipes to Oprah’s magazine. If the sign off from Oprah isn’t enough to convince you to give this cookbook a look, just spend a moment to flip through.

Language of Transformation: Oprah Edition

This is my year that I have been focused on transforming myself into a happier and healthier version of myself. One way I hope to do that is through changing the way I speak about myself. It seems like an easy goal for the new year, but it is hard. I know that I am not alone on this goal when I cam across Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations with Bishop T.D. Jakes. And you know that if Oprah promotes it then it is going to be amazing. 

The Gifts of Imperfection: Wholehearted Life

A goal of the new year for me has been to work on being happier and healthier. One of the ways I hope to accomplish that goal is by learning how to erase the negative voice in my head. But it is easier said than done when it comes to erasing self doubt. 

Then I was gifted with the book, The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown. She has been featured on Oprah and TED Talks. She is a writer and research. She breaks down the shame and fear we face in life such as the fear of standing out or being enough. She explains the psychological why along with how we can reverse the process. In the end, readers and practicers of these steps will move toward what she calls “wholehearted living” or simply embracing who you are.
