First Monday Favorites for October 2020

We're finally in November, and it's time for First Monday Favorites.   

This is where I post my favorite recipe from the previous month and ask fellow bloggers to do the same.   Just drop on by and let us know your favorite recipe that you made last month. 

Not the one with the most views, although that's always nice, but your own personal favorite, the one you'll make time and time again. 

I started this linkup party a couple of years ago, mainly because of a group I used to belong to.
It was called the Secret Recipe Club, and the members were grouped into four groups, assigned a blog to go and make a recipe from, and then post about it on their assigned date.   We shared our finds on a Monday, and were staggered throughout the month.  Which meant that every Monday we could look forward to lots of great recipes.  I still make several of the recipes I found through that amazing club. 

It was always fun to see what people made, and shared and also to see what recipe they found on my blog and made.   I loved it and missed it when the group dissolved.  So I thought I would do my own version of it.
And here it is.  But now you pick your own favorite recipe from your blog from the previous month and share it here.   The First Monday of the month.  

My favorite recipe last month was actually a tie.  

In my heart that is.   

I made some mini Mock Pumpkin Cheesecakes, and they were amazing and if we were going to be going to any kind of Thanksgiving dinner this year, I'd be making them to bring along.

 However, I do like a piece of coffeecake with my afternoon coffee or even for breakfast.  Well, it's got eggs and dairy and oats, so it qualifies as breakfast, and, it even has veggies.   

I made this Candied Carrot Coffeecake

and it is one I will be making again and again. Not only did it taste amazing right out of the oven, it made just enough for 4 servings (generous ones at that), but I baked it in my toaster oven and... it stayed moist and flavorful for a couple of days.  

Now I want to know what special dish did you make last month that you'll make again.  Please share it here at First Monday Favorites.
