    Where did the summer go? It’s hard to believe that fall is almost here. The other day, I saw typical fall displays at the store, and just stood there wondering.

    Although, living in FL, the seasons don’t play as large a roll. I always miss the changing of the fall colors.

    Thanks for the recipe lineup. I’m looking forward to trying these!!

    Ahh I am so sad summer is pretty much over 🙁 Back to school on Wednesday and that will mean the official end for me! Anyway, great recipe lineup! You should add your pumpkin whoopie pies to this though… I made them last year for a party and everyone asked me for the recipe!

    I may or may not have cracked open a pumpkin ale last night & pretended it was fall. I mean, football started, the humidity is kinda sorta starting to subside… why can’t a girl indulge herself a little?

    I wish the trees look like that already. Although I will still be wearing my white jeans for a few more weeks, I want cold temperatures and pumpkin lattes now.

    Your white chicken chili is the best! I’ve made it several times and it’s always a crowd pleaser! Always, I finished your book last night (read it in less than 24 hours) and really enjoyed it! You rock, Jenna!

    That cinnamon roll! Mmm! And it’s still really hot in San Diego – hotter now that it was all summer (as is usually the case in Sept). But I’m still craving pumpkin & soup!

    I found your blog through Heather Christos. I’ve printed most of your fall recipes, OMG. I’m ready to start cooking again, now that fall is coming, and, well, our stove is getting fixed. 🙂 I think I’ll start with your mom’s chili. YUM!

    Congratulations on the book deal!
