Welcome to the season of


Autumn’s Arrival

September 23—Autumnal Equinox
Fall begins at 5:05 A.M. EDT. The autumnal equinox is defined as the point at which the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator from north to south. The word equinox means “equal night”: Night and day are about the same length of time. In addition to the equal hours of daylight and darkness, the equinox is a time when the Sun’s apparent motion undergoes the most rapid change. Around the time of the equinox, variations in the position on the horizon where the Sun rises and sets can be noticed by alert observers from one day to the next.

Why Autumn Leaves Change Color
Only a few of our many species of deciduous trees—notably maple, aspen, oak, and gum—turn vivid colors in the fall. Light or, actually, the lack of it is the main reason. The amount of daylight relates to the timing of the autumnal equinox. Read more about why leaves change color.

Freshen sponges by soaking them in salt water.

  Clean your greens in salt water for easier removal of dirt.

  Gelatin sets more quickly when a dash of salt is added.

  Fruits put in mildly salted water after peeling will not discolor.

Little Pineapple
Upside-Down Cakes


1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 slices pineapple, well drained (from 8-oz can)
2 maraschino cherries, well drained
2 Pillsbury® Grands!® Frozen Buttermilk Biscuits (from 25-oz bag)
Whipped topping, if desired


  Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 2 (6-oz) custard cups with cooking spray.
  In small bowl, mix butter, corn syrup and brown sugar; divide evenly between custard cups. Place 1 pineapple slice and 1 cherry into each custard cup; top each with 1 biscuit. Place custard cups on cookie sheet.
 Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until deep golden brown; cool 1 minute. Turn upside down onto serving plates; remove custard cups. Serve warm, topped with whipped topping.
Be sure to remove the cakes from the custard cups just a minute after baking so that the cakes don't stick--and so you don't miss a bit of the caramely topping!
