Grain and Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes
These are like Harvest Grain 'n Nut pancakes, but much better! Since our arid climate keeps the moisture content of flour very low, I was concerned about some comments saying the pancakes were dry or heavy. I added 1/2 cup additional buttermilk (reducing the plain milk to 1/2 cup) and added another egg. The pancakes were delicious, moist, and light but substantial enough to accommodate the heartiness of the whole grains and nuts. Great reviews from all the family members, even those not fond of nuts in baked goods.

Seafood Chowder
I usually avoid recipes that involve condensed cream soups, but I made this tonight and I'm glad I did. My family loved it. My only changes were in substituting seafood that was available today in the fish market rather than using specifically what the recipe called for, and leaving out the clams. This chowder served with some sourdough bread and a salad was a tasty and filling meal. The cayenne gives the soup a little bit of a kick, so anyone sensitive to spicy dishes might want to back off on that quantity.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies
I made these cookies last night for my teen daughters to take to a special lunch with their friends. I can't comment on how well they store because all the cookies are gone! Everyone loved them. They have a soft, cake-like texture, aren't too sweet, and have just the right amount of spiciness. Be prepared for a very soft dough - almost like a thick muffin batter. Be sure to cool them thoroughly before frosting or else the heat from the cookies will turn the opaque white icing into a translucent glaze. After frosting them, I let them sit overnight before stacking and covering them. The icing was not sticky at all this morning and they packed and transported nicely. The icing recipe made about twice as much as I needed - and I frosted the tops completely instead of drizzling the icing on. I guess I'll have to make another batch of these delicious cookies to use up the extra icing!
