Here’s another one of my favorite posts:  Stuff I’ve Gotta Share and You’ve Gotta See! 

Pumpkin Bread Recipes

On Parade Magazine‘s blog this week, I shared 10 DELICIOUS WAYS TO MAKE PUMPKIN BREAD– featuring recipes from some of my favorite blogs.  Click through the slideshow and figure out which one you’d like to bake first!

Pumpkin Cranberry Cornbread Muffins

Also shared on Parade‘s blog:  a recipe for PUMPKIN- CRANBERRY CORNBREAD MUFFINS.  These are good muffins for dunking into soup and chili, and they make a good breakfast muffin too- warmed up with a little butter and honey.

Natural Grocers

Are you lucky enough to have a Natural Grocers in your town??  I attended the grand opening of the store that just opened in Reno, Nevada and got a tour.  I love it!  They have a very impressive amount of organic, nitrite and antibiotic free foods both fresh, frozen and packaged… along with gluten free products.  Everything they carry in meat and dairy comes from Grass Fed Cows.  The produce section is small but gorgeous.  Their prices are pretty good too!

Wine Purse

This is a WINE PURSE!  I’m not sure I’d buy it because it’s designed so that you can stuff the bag from a boxed wine into it (and I don’t do boxed wine…), but in reading through the reviews it looks like it might be possible to use a disposable bag inside instead.  Why would you want it?  Tailgating… picnicking… sneaking into the movie theater??  🙂

Apple Variety Chart

Good to know!

Local Children

I thought this was holiday timely since there is such a local food movement going on these days!

Halloween Recipes
It’s almost Halloween!  Here are a couple of last minute Halloween ideas for you:  FRANKENGUAC is a cute and easy appetizer shared by my friend Kristen from the Dine & Dish blog.  My PUMPKIN PIE POP TARTS would be super cute to serve up on Halloween morning!

Candy Cake

I guess this is a “leftover Halloween candy idea!”  Major Candy Overload Cake!


it was me all along

I’m currently obsessed with Andie Mitchell’s completely amazing WEIGHT LOSS STORY.  Andie is the author of the blog, Can You Stay for Dinner.  If you read anything today, read here weight loss story on her blog.  It’s totally inspiring!  Her memoir is coming out in January, and I’ll definitely be reading that.  She’s a great story teller.

I cannot stop watching this video!  It’s a smooth jazz cover of Meghan Trainor’s smash hit song “All About That Bass” by Kate Davis.  Her voice is perfect for this song, and I actually enjoy it 100% more than the original.  Nice job with this one from Postmodern Jukebox!

    Oh my gosh, I shared that video on my FB. Love it so much! The band played that song at my son’s wedding a few weeks ago and we have the cutest video of my new daughter-in-law dancing so it’s special to me. Love this post!

    So much fun in this post — I love the witch comic and the Frankenguac and pop tarts are great! I need that apple variety chart in my life, too! 🙂

    Would you believe I’ve only made 1 loaf of pumpkin bread this year? I’ve got to fix that!

    I love the apple chart. I like trying different apples in recipes. Now that we moved to a farm that has an orchard I will be picking different apples varieties to plant to replace some of the ones I don’t like. This is helpful.

    When Kristen first posted that FRANKENGUAC, I about died. I love it so much. And the apple chart? AWESOME.

    I am in love with this post. Those breads, amazing! That purse, hilarious!! That candy cake, I’m drooling!

  • Stephanie @ Plain Chicken wrote:

    That wine purse! Love! Not sure why I need it, but I want it. 🙂

    The only boxed wine I like is Bota Box – it is actually pretty good and pretty cheap. Lasts about a month – perfect for when you only want one glass at night.

    Pumpkin recipes are the bomb, loving them. I laughed out loud at that witches cartoon, too funny. Reminds me of Hocus Pocus with Bette Midler, she cracks me up!!! Love that movie any time of year =)
