September 10th: Favorite Fall recipes
Did you know that I don't care for pumpkin pie? Ina Garten's Pumpkin Roulade with Ginger Buttercream is my go to Autumn dessert.

I LOVE pumpkin bread.  Bring me a piece of pumpkin bread and you have my heart!  Once Upon a Chef has a yummy recipe.

I am making these caramels this weekend and why not make them autumn caramels?

I love apple crumbles and Nagi at Recipe Tin Eats has a good one!

Perhaps you'd like to sip on something for fall?  This Spiced Chamomile Hot Toddy is a twist on a classic that'll become your new seasonal favorite!

September 17th: Zen Videos 
Long videos about process, but I cannot look away...

Artisan Sourdough Bread Process from Start to Finish - both of my daughter and I have watched this video.

Cut Flower Arrangement Start to Finish - This fascinates me – put a vase and flowers in front of me and I panic.

The Chelsea Bindery Shows the Process of Book Binding
