Happy News & A Sweet Fall Roundup

Big news! One reason that I've had tragically little time to play in the kitchen lately has been my training for the Walt Disney World 1st Annual Wine & Dine Half Marathon, which was this past weekend. I'm thrilled to say that I was able to go from professional sedentary couch potato to half marathon finisher in less than a year (read more about the saga on my running blog). For the record, I am fully convinced that if I can do it, you can too.


On a slightly more food-related note, there are some recipes that are just too good and too appropriate for this time of year to stay buried forever in the Playing House archives. Here are some of my favorite fall-related treats from Autumns past. Happy October, and I'll be back soon with more fall deliciousness!

All those fall treats look spectacular! I've been making a ton of apple and pumpkin things myself. I might have to include those pumpkin cream cheese muffins.
