I think it’s fair to say that cauliflower was nearly forgotten—the lone vegetable left on the veggie platter after all others have been eaten or hidden under a blanket of cheese sauce. But cauliflower has recently been rediscovered as a skinny “starch” and is making a comeback on the menus of family-style restaurants and high-brow eateries alike as an alternative to the higher-carb potato.

What’s your favorite thing about fall? The answer for me is an easy one: it’s soup-making time again!

I’m well-known in my circle of friends for my stellar soups. Whenever we have a party and it’s cool out, it’s pretty much a guarantee that soup will be on the menu. I even made 3 different ones for my birthday party last year.

Here are my 5 favorite soups starring fall produce.

To me, carrots are a humble vegetable. However, the Greeks once thought carrots were the secret to great sex. And the vegetable’s amorous reputation followed it to Rome, where the emperor Caligula fed nothing but carrot dishes to the Roman Senate so he could watch them “rut like wild beasts.”

Most of the “water cooler conversation” around our office this time of year is about back to school. (Check out the recipes and tips in our new Back to School Guide!)

I’m sure this comes as no surprise because we work at EatingWell, but most of the focus has been on what to pack kids for lunch. You might find it refreshing to know that we too struggle with what to feed our kids.

Wonder what it’s like to chat about food with award-winning author and food activist Michael Pollan? Thought-provoking. At least that’s what it was like for me when I interviewed Pollan, author of The New York Times bestseller The Omnivore’s Dilemma (Penguin, 2006), for our latest issue of EatingWell Magazine. (Find out what one food Michael Pollan won’t eat in our exclusive podcast.)

Every fall, when I was growing up in western Pennsylvania, my parents took me and my younger brother, Angelo, apple picking. We’d usually go in late September, always on a Sunday. Angelo and I loved picking—but even more, we loved the savory apple recipes and sweet apple treats that my mom made with the bushel of apples (roughly 45 pounds) stored in our downstairs fridge.

What is your favorite thing to make with apples?

I’m trying to eat more vegetarian meals, so I’m obsessed with beans. And the bean recipes I’ve been making have made it incredibly easy. I thought I would feel less satisfied without having meat as part of my dinner, but beans fill me right up. Since they’re packed with fiber I never feel hungry after a meal. And my wallet isn’t suffering either—a can of beans is much cheaper than a pound of chicken or beef (and a pound of dried beans is even less expensive!). Now that’s what I call satisfaction.

I like to say that my favorite food group is cheese. I know cheese is not an actual food group, but it’s so delicious it ought to be. Even though it can be high in calories and saturated fat there are still ways to enjoy cheese as part of a healthy diet. Plus, all cheese is a rich source of calcium, so sampling the abundance helps to strengthen your bones. (Try these 20+ recipes for bone health.)
