WIAW #26 + Tuna Salad Melt Recipe

This Wednesday, my diary of daily eats consists of baked goodies, warming meals, and, well, more baked goodies. The grey, rainy, cool end of last week put me in the mood to do some baking experimentation. Now it’s warmed up again a little, making it a glorious autumn outside that just begs for seasonal sweets. Perfecting my recipe for gluten free pumpkin muffins? Check. Using up the rest of the pumpkin on some awesome pumpkin banana chocolate chip bread? Of course. Making even more muffins because I wanted to test out the batter in a blender? Oh, my goodness, the berryliciousness of it all. And there’s more coming your way on Friday with my pumpkin peanut butter cookies…

Ridgefield Pamby Half Marathon Race Recap

This weekend was a whirlwind of stormy weather and calmer skies, the baking of many autumn pumpkin goodies, and oh yes – my spur of the moment half marathon. Last Tuesday, I decided to sign up for the Ridgefield Pamby Half Marathon, organized by the local Wolfpit Running Club, because my parents were running it and I thought it would be fun to do a hometown race. I knew the course would be hilly, because Ridgefield is basically a bunch of hills grouped around a quaint New England main street area, and I don’t do well with hills, but it was going to be a run for fun. My Ridgefield Pamby Half Marathon race recap is going to feature fun and hills…and some struggling, and some more hills. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

Pumpkin Puffins

Pumpkin may be an autumn flavor to some, but I enjoy pumpkin treats all year round! That said, pumpkin patches and all the pumpkin goodies in stores do get me in the mood to whip up more pumpkin baked goods this time of year. What better way to usher in October than a batch of gluten free pumpkin muffins?
