PRESCHOOL-WAITLIST FEES — The dilemma for the modern-day working parents affluent enough to wrestle with the dire child care workforce crisis is they either find somewhere to go, or make do by patching up nanny hours, live-in au pairs and relying on family members. By Sally Ho. UPCOMING Wednesday: 900 words by 2 p.m., photo.
FRANCE-PALACE SECRETS — The French presidential wine cellar holds 14,000 bottles regarded as so precious, few people are allowed to enter the room.

SENT Saturday: 760 words, photos.
FOOD-COLUMN-ATK-SOUR CREAM COFFEE CAKE — This ultra-rich coffee cake is pure decadence, from its nutty topping and dramatic swirls of cinnamon sugar to its supremely moist, dense crumb. By America’s Test Kitchen. UPCOMING: 640 words by 2 p.m. Tuesday, photos.
FOOD-COLUMN-ATK-PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE BARS — We love how in a pumpkin cheesecake the tangy cream cheese offsets the warm-spiced pumpkin. So we set out to create a streamlined version in the form of a pumpkin cheesecake bar. By America’s Test Kitchen. UPCOMING: 575 words by 2 p.m. Tuesday, photos.

FOOD-COLUMN-ATK-MIXED BERRY SCONES — These scones are a flaky, honey-glazed brunch delight, brimming with juicy, sweet berries in a buttery, rich crumb.

FOOD-COLUMN-ATK-APPLE PIE — The average apple pie has unevenly cooked fruit, and its juice turns the crust pale and soggy, making it impossible to slice the pie neatly.

FOOD-COLUMN-KITCHENWISE-SAUTEED CHICKEN CUTLETS — This delicious entree that can be prepared in just 30 minutes is indeed a quick, easy and affordable skill with endless variations. By Sara Moulton. UPCOMING: 750 words by 2 p.m. Monday, photos.

GARDENING-MESSIER FALL CLEANUP — Time to rake up the leaves, deadhead the perennials and till the vegetable garden? Hold on a sec.
