Black Walnut Spice Cookies

One of my mom's holiday cookies that's perfect for my new healthy lifestyle!

Mediterranean White Bean & Vegetable Soup

I'm always looking for ways to use different vegetables and this is a recipe that uses both leeks and fennel, in addition to the more classic vegetables. Water can be used in place of the chicken stock for a vegetarian dish and wine is a nice ingredient, but not essential to the soup. I just like the taste of wine! Fresh herbs can be used in place of dried, if you are lucky enough to have them.

Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

Use fresh fall apples in this wonderful fall weekend breakfast treat! (Makes a great snack if balance of batter is made up and frozen!)
