Every Fall I start hunting for pumpkin recipes. After moving to the United States from Australia, I was amazed to find pumpkin so frequently used as a dessert food! Growing up we only ate it roasted or in soup. Pumpkin pie was new and exciting. I loved it. It didn’t take me long to catch on and I quickly moved from pumpkin pie to pumpkin bread and pumpkin cookies, and even pumpkin lattes. A few health challenges this year have resulted in the need to avoid gluten. So, I’ve had to hunt for gluten-free pumpkin recipes. The following pumpkin pancakes are one of my happy discoveries. These pumpkin pancakes have the signature fall flavor of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg and are well suited to breakfast or an afternoon snack. [by Stacy Karen]
Use homemade pre-soaked oats — or the fabulous Touch’O Honey pre-soaked oats from JoshEWEa’s Garden — to offer a breakfast of yummy choices for everyone! Let each family member top pre-soaked oats with their toppings of choice: crispy nuts, shredded coconut, assorted fresh and/or dried fruit, raw honey, and/or raw milk. This homemade (and easy) granola bar offers an excellent alternative to today’s highly processed, extruded breakfast cereals.
Preparing for the menu plan service each week has given me ample opportunity to make extra special breakfasts for my family. And they’re loving it! This morning we’re eating a 5-spice baked oatmeal; last week we gobbled up this easy baked omelet. Because it is baked, this is an “omelet” you can’t screw up — that’s why I like it so much.

Egg salad! We love it. It is a great meal for a busy mom, because it is so easy to whip up in a pinch. This is my basic egg salad, which is admittedly, nothing fancy. I season to taste, so it is not much of a recipe, either. Be sure to share how you make your egg salad! Do you have any special ingredients that kick yours up?
