Maple-Glazed Breakfast Cookies With Dried Cranberries and Pepitas
As a mother of two, I knew that my breakfast cookie had to be nutritious and filling. But as a baker, I wanted my cookies to be delicious and eye-catching. I have endeavored to satisfy both of these requirements with this recipe. One of the things I did to pump up the nutritional value of my breakfast cookie, besides using whole wheat flour, is to add wheat germ. To achieve a slightly nutty taste and texture in my breakfast cookies without the nuts, I added pepitas — green pumpkin seeds. The dried cranberries add sweetness and a pop of color. All in all, I think the combination of ingredients in these breakfast cookies will please everyone in your family.Recipe courtesy of West of the Loop

Pumpkin Seeds
Chef Kyle Rourke at Red Star Tavern in Portland, Ore., shares his recipe for Pumpkin Seed Dip, perfect for the fall months. The even better part is that it's vegan and filled with nutrients, using avocado as a substitute for sour cream. They serve the dip with housemade sesame crackers and pickled vegetables.

Lazy Roast Carrot Soup
What I also like about this soup is that it is relatively free form and foolproof. No real heavy measuring, no watching of a pan or pot, cutting into beans, spending hours nearby, and yet, certainly more sophisticated than puréeing stovetop cooked carrots. It is a quiet roast of a big chopped carrot in the oven, then a quick hot bath with some broth and sautéed onion, garlic, and a nice pinch of spices punches flavor into the soup an it is finished with a squeeze of lemon and whizzed to smooth.For more great recipes like this one, visit Salvegging.

Chicken Enchiladas
Here’s my twist on chicken enchiladas. Red sauce is great and all, but sometimes you just need a change. I topped my enchiladas with a cilantro-pepita dressing and pico de gallo, but you can definitely turn up the heat level with some serrano or habanero peppers. Pepitas are green pumpkin seeds often used in Mexican cooking and can be found in the specialty foods aisle of the grocery store (try asking for pine nuts, and they should be nearby).
