Cooking with the Moms
Last week we ventured to Atlanta, GA for the city's annual Taste of Atlanta event. At the festival, we cooked up one of our favorite family-friendly recipes for Quick Apple Sausage Quesadillas, and we had a chance to sample some of Atlanta's finest cuisine. We also took some time to visit area restaurant including Miller Union. Liz isn't sure what got into her but she couldn't resist the Braised Rabbit with Radishes and Creamed Turnips while Janice enjoyed the NY Strip with Creamy Polenta and Brussels Sprouts. Yes folks, there's a whole lot more to the South than grits and chicken fried steak!

We celebrate Halloween on this week's Cooking with the Moms with a tribute to the almighty pumpkin. A member of the Cucurbita family (which also includes squash and cucumber), pumpkin is off the charts when it comes to versatility and nutrition: It's packed with immune-boosting vitamin A as well as fiber and nutrients like potassium. We shared some fabulous recipes on the show including a makeover for Trader Joe's Truffle Brownies, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Granola Bars, Pumpkin Custard, Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Frosting, and a bunch more.

Ground Flaxseed and wheat germ can add great nutrition to everyday recipes – everything from the breading on chicken Parmesan to pancake, cookie, muffin and quick bread batters. On today's show, we share two recipes. The first is for Cheesy Chicken Parmesan, a recipe made with ground flaxseed in the crispy coating, and the second is for Orange-Cranberry Wheat Germ Muffins made with super-nutritious wheat germ.
