Fall is my favorite time of year.

The weather cools, apple farms open their doors for picking, there’s Halloween and, of course, back to school. Whether it is sending the kids off on their first day or you are returning yourself, it is always difficult to get back into the routine. Homework, after-school activities and adjusting to early mornings all mean we have shifted from fun, long-summer-day family activities to quick greetings as we pass each other in the hallways. Evenings and weekends become crucially important for establishing quality time together as a family.

A day filled with work, school, family, volunteering, social commitments, and outside interest means you’re on the go and probably skipping meals, but you still need nutrients and energy to power thru the night. Quick, ready-to-eat, nutrient dense power bars help fill that need. They also help people who are looking for a snack to boost them during workouts or other physical activities.

Serve banana coffee cake with a twist

Written by
Waiting for bananas to ripen for baking can try anyone’s patience. Laurie McNamara, author of “Simply Scratch: 120 Wholesome Homemade Recipes Made Easy” (Avery), admits she doesn’t have the patience for bananas to brown and that roasting them in the oven speeds up the process. That process is on display in McNamara’s recipe for “Roasted Banana Coffee Cake,” which makes a great addition to breakfast tables and brunches.

Surprise guests with something sweet

Written by
Tea time is a part of daily life in England and countries affiliated with the United Kingdom. But that does not mean residents of North America do not host afternoon guests from time to time. On such visits, it’s customary to offer coffee or tea and a light snack. Prospective hosts who want to offer something sweet and a little bit traditional can try this recipe for “Rava Tea Cake with Almond Paste and Rose Water” from Ruta Kahate’s “5 Spices, 50 Dishes” (Chronicle Books). Typically served at tea time in India, these cakes are often dipped in tea.
