Season 2 MasterChef winner Jennifer Behm is a food lover, owner of Pink Martini Catering, a soon to be wife, an adventurer – and now a food blogger for PEOPLE.com.

Here on the East Coast the weather has started to change into beautiful fall weather. There is a crispness in the air at night – I love this time of the year. 

Recently, we had the chance to visit nearby Parson's Farm.  What a cool place!  Two donkeys, lots of chickens, goats and a beautiful array of pumpkins and watermelons. As the fall ingredients become abundant, I've got a couple great ideas of what you can do with it.

Jennifer Behm: The Best Amish Country Has to Offer

Season 2 MasterChef winner Jennifer Behm is a food lover, owner of Pink Martini Catering, a soon-to-be wife, an adventurer – and this summer a food blogger for PEOPLE.com.

This week has been filled with lots of fun stuff.  A trip to the Baltimore Aquarium, an excursion to Philly to enjoy South Street, and a trip to one of my favorite places: Amish Country.  

As an avid snorkeler and surfer with an immense love of sea turtles, I find the Baltimore Aquarium such an amazing place. They have a gorgeous green turtle named Calypso, who was rescued from the wild due to an infection in her left fin. Her diet: seven heads of lettuce a day. Boy, I would have a great figure if that was all I ate. I like my lettuce with a little more accoutrements (LOL), like garbanzo beans, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes and pickled vegetables.

With a little over a month and a half left of summer, I know like most families, we are trying to get all the things we wanted to do this summer in. Tiling, finally getting the car clean – mmmm that one is tough – the sewing projects I have ... Well, the list goes on and on, but we decided to stop and take a moment to watch some of the Olympic Games.  

As a former competitive gymnast with aspirations to be at the Olympics, every opening ceremony gives me the chills. Watching our athletes give everything to go for gold is something special.

Party party party! Wish I were the one relaxing and endulging! The life of a caterer and restaurateur.

Stats for this week: One trip to N.Y.C. – 12 hours in the concrete jungle with a very long two-hour drive home on I-95, one engagement party for 26, a business meet-and-greet, off-premises party with vino, we hosted the post party for Aubrey Plaza's new movie Safety Not Guaranteed, and topped off the week feeding 3,000 people at the Best of Delaware Party! Oh yeah, and regular service at my fiancé's restaurant Orillas.

So it was a slow week – LOL.

Last week was exciting! After catering four events and taking meetings with some networks, I missed my flight to L.A.

Did you know they cancel your entire flight if you miss your outbound? Yep, I was at Philly International with no ticket, but thanks to the amazing services of Lerone I was able to secure a seat to L.A.

Season 2 MasterChef winner Jennifer Behm is a food lover, owner of Pink Martini Catering, a soon-to-be wife, an adventurer – and, this summer, a food blogger for PEOPLE.com. Here's her latest update.

As I was growing up, my mom was the ultimate armchair quarterback for Sunday football, and my 107-year-old great-grandmother – yeah, I said 107 – could name ALL the Philadelphia Phillies stats from memory. (Ironically, she never watched them on TV just listened to them on the radio)

So, you might say that sports are in my blood.

I also think that as a kid we went to every Reading Phils game. I even saw Mike Schmidt play there! The first big-league, live sporting event I ever saw was the Flyers Vs. the L.A. Kings. I was a Luc Robitaille and L.A. Kings fan – big mistake to cheer for the opposing team at a hockey game in Philadelphia!

Season 2 MasterChef winner Jennifer Behm is a food lover, owner of Pink Martini Catering, a soon to be wife, an adventurer – and this summer a food blogger for PEOPLE.com.

As a kid, I think I spent every day at the pool in the summer. As a teen, I spent hours cruising in my best friends Honda Prelude, – yep, sunroof open rocking to DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince! In college, most of my summer days were spent mountain biking, surfing, playing soccer and laughing with friends.

Now, as an adult, I love having my friends and family for Sunday Funday – sometimes just to hang out at the local pub (love that one, because cleanup is so easy, LOL). And sometimes it is great just to sit on the patio with my dog Zoe, fiancé and a cold bevie. Funny how things change.

Season 2 MasterChef winner Jennifer Behm is a food lover, owner of Pink Martini Catering, a soon to be wife, an adventurer – and this summer a food blogger for PEOPLE.com.

With the summer now here, I am very excited at the possibilities for road trips – for a day, a weekend, a week. Growing up, we did not have a lot of money, so we often turned to the road for our escapes.

Camping was No. 1 on our list, followed closely by travel to soccer tournaments. I loved it, but I'm sure my family was over it by the third weekend in a row.

But now, with the east coast under heat attack, the beach is a great destination. I'm lucky that it's so close, but we can also easily reach the mountains or simply venture off to visit friends.

My dilemma, however, has always been about what I should bring along for two kids who generally eat us out of house and home, as well as for ourselves and whoever is adventurous enough to join us. I always pack too much, of course, but as a former Junior Girl Scout I'm always prepared for anything. Why, I do believe I even have my old mess kit!
