Mexican meatball soupMemories of sipping the juice of my favorite childhood soup always come back during the fall season. Though I love making and eating albondigas all year, it's this time of year that I remember eating many special stews and soups as a kid! Unfortunately, I never learned to make Mexican meatball soup until I had become a mom. Now I try and make a batch of albondigas any time I can. Albondigas have become such a favorite dish in my little family.Read More »from Mucho Gusto! Make 7-Ingredient Mexican Meatball Soup
I love the flavors and the tenderness in the albondigas, especially the way my grandmother made them. She was very particular of how she rolled her meatballs and the amount of rice to meat ratio. She was also a lover of lots of oregano. Thanks to her, this is the only dish I can really tolerate making with oregano. Trying to make this recipe without oregano defeats the whole purposes of making albondigas. The flavors really come together in this soup with oregano.
Now as a mom, I prepare this soup for my babies. I find any excuse to make this

Now almost essential to the season, pumpkin spice makes an appearance every fall. Traditionally, pumpkin spice is a blend of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, and cloves that's added to seasonal pies like pumpkin or apple. But these days, the pumpkin spice craze is much, much more than a spice blend - it's a full-fledged niche industry, with manufacturers offering up everything from pumpkin spice cappuccino mix to pumpkin spice M&M's. Whether you're a fan of the craze or simply want to marvel at all the possibilities, here are 7 unique ways to get your pumpkin spice fix this fall. - By Elizabeth Stark and Brian Campbell

Smoked Salmon + Yogurt
As yogurt shakes off its only-for-breakfast, only-with-fruit-and-granola reputation, we're seeing lots of innovative ways to serve and eat this protein-packed food. The one we're most smitten with right now: topping plain Greek yogurt with chopped smoked salmon. It's creamy, savory and salty, and a fantastic snack or light meal for any time of day (it's even better with a squirt of lemon juice, a drizzle of olive oil, salt, pepper and a pinch of fresh dill). Yogurtmaker Chobani serves the combination at its New York City shop and it's been a runaway hit.
Try it: Combine a half-cup plain Greek yogurt with 1 1/2 Tbsp. smoked salmon, a squirt of lemon juice, 2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil and a pinch each of salt, pepper and fresh dill. Eat with a spoon or with bagel chips.

Celebrating National Coffee Day
September 29 is National Coffee Day and for me that's cause for celebration! There's nothing I like better than a big cup of steaming hot freshly brewed Joe! And while I'm a coffee purist...I pour boiling water over freshly ground coffee in a Melitta filter...I've been pleasantly surprised at what a great cup of coffee, espresso, or even a latte you can now get from a single-serve coffee machine.

"Did you know that today is National Pancake Day? Any food as spectacular as a pancake deserves its own holiday! In celebration, I'm making a stack of sweetly tart buttermilk-apple pancakes. And the best news of all: This recipe relies on applesauce -- instead of lots of sugar -- to help create a deep fruit flavor, so it's healthier than the average flapjack you'd make from a mix. I can't think of a more fall-friendly (and delicious!) breakfast than this one, so grab your spatula and start cooking."
