Welcome Back Delicious Fall Days

Fall has returned, just as my neighborhood is beginning to turn an array of warm autumn hues. The morning dew is back and a slight chill is present in the air each evening. Hot tea in the morning is sounding better and better.
In my garden I'm growing pumpkins! They should be ready to harvest early next month and soon the farmhouse will be filled with the scent of pumpkin pie, roasted pumpkin seeds and pumpkin bread.

This is a great time of year to gift a seasonal treat like a loaf of zucchini bread or pumpkin muffins to a dear friend. I love home cooked gifts. You can taste the love that went into making it.
And don't forget about apples. They are ripe for the picking. If you have apples going bad or more apples than you know what to do with, make a quick dessert tonight. Simply slice them up and throw them in a baking dish, top with oatmeal (mixed with a little butter and brown sugar). Bake at 350 until it starts to brown a little on top. You have quick apple crisp!

Do you have an easy fall snack, meal or dessert? You know you have to share it, right? Call me at 1-888-633-5452 or send it in (with a picture preferably) at D@Delilah.com.

JHud Shows Us her Fabulous Side

Jennifer Hudson's new album is as sassy and cool as the leather jacket she is sporting in the cover photo. In fact, it's so cool all they had to do was call it JHud. No further explanation needed. Jennifer's album, JHud, is fun, fast and full of the power you know and love about her voice.

I'm used to Jennifer's ballads but JHud sports a little more attitude in this album. And it's amazing to see and hear the maturity and growth in her talent since she was discovered on American Idol years ago. Check out the latest songs from this accomplished artist...

Don't Save Forgiveness for Tomorrow

Your recent Delilah Dilemma really hit home with me. You were reminding a young woman how important it is to forgive her mom because you aren't guaranteed tomorrow. Well, I'm 45 and my mom is almost 76. My sister and I grew up without a father figure in our lives, believing that our dad committed suicide when I was just 3 years old.

A few years ago, my sister and I found out that our mom had not been truthful with us as to whom our dads were, and that we both have different dads. This really hurt me! I felt she had stolen so many memories from me by not knowing my father. I've tried to locate him but have been unsuccessful.

Since finding this out, I've distanced myself from my mom and I have gone months at a time without even as much as a phone call to her, when I used to visit daily. You reminded me of how important each day is. We are not guaranteed a tomorrow. My mom is getting up there in years and she has been through so much in her life. She has had an aneurysm burst along with several bouts of breast cancer. Yet, she always took care of us. I'm ashamed of myself for staying mad at her for so long.

My promise to you is that I am going to work on mending our relationship, starting today. I can't change the past but I can change the future. Heather

Tell Me What Inspires You

What inspires you? Does music inspire you? Sunsets? Art? Kids? Are you inspired when you paint, when you draw, when you sing?
The earth inspires me...nature just blows me away. When I go hiking or walking thru the woods or on a horseback ride, I get inspired and it rejuvenates my spirit. I took my kids on a float down the Umpqua River this summer and it was pure serenity letting the water carry me thru the breathtaking scenery. Plus, it was a whole lot of fun.

When I look up at night and see the stars from my farm or when I'm in Africa where there are no bright lights, I'm in awe of creation. When I'm in the garden, harvesting a field full of produce, I'm in awe of how easily and quickly a small seed grows to become nourishment for the body.

And when I'm in my kitchen with my girlfriends or my kids cooking and canning our goods, there is so much wonderful conversation. We share and laugh about some of our favorite memories...and all these things inspire me to continue doing what I love to do.

Now it's your turn: Write to me and sound off about the things that inspire you and take you to your happy place. I will return the favor with some uplifting and inspiring music on the radio tonight...
