Fall is my favorite time of year. I overheat easily; I love weather that’s just a little bit cool, crisp enough that I’d consider wearing a jacket.
To celebrate the first day of autumn, here are five things I’m enjoying now…with a bonus food quote from my twitter feed:

Five Fun Food Finds September 2014
1. Le Creuset Fingertip Pot Holders
(Picture at the top of the page.) These pinch potholders are the perfect size - big enough to protect my hands, small enough to make it easy to grab a pan, sheet, or pot full of stew. I bought them earlier this year, and I rustle through a drawer full of potholders to find these little guys.
2. Cedar Plank Grilled Chicken Wings
My Ohio grilling blog buddy Mike Lang posted these on Weber’s blog a few weeks back. I have this recipe bookmarked for tailgating parties this fall.
3. Why You Should Refrigerate Tomatoes
From Daniel Gritzer at SeriousEats.com - Store tomatoes in the refrigerator? Everything I know is wrong!
4. Sous Vide Beef Goulash
From Jason Logsdon at ModernistCookingMadeEasy.com. Sous Vide stew? Everything I know is wrong…again! [h/t SousVideSupreme.com blog]
5. Jacques Pepin bones out a Chicken
Intellectually, I know Jacques Pepin is a master of technique. I own his Techniques book, after all. And then...I watched him debone a chicken. This video left me weak in the knees. Now, I'm no amateur - I can section a chicken pretty quickly - but he can remove ALL THE BONES from a chicken faster than I can cut it into pieces.
