Since the reduction in the size of cake mixes I am reluctant to use a recipe using a cake mix unless the size (ounces) is listed. One of my favorite coffee cake recipes just does not work with the new size. Every brand is different now. It really bugs me there is no consistency in sizing of a staple to so many recipes.
Just venting :-D.

I have been a faithful since the beginning of the newsletter. So many
of the recipes in my files are coded source NL. Keep up the good work.

Sending prayers and good vibes for your speedy recovery.

Both cats are happy to have me at home. I have a cough when I am lying down. The last few days he looked like he was so tired. I guess my coughing has kept him up at night.  Last night Ditto had had it with me and my cough.  He whacked me with his paw and slept in the opposite end of the house. My thinking was I was not sleeping well at night but I guess I kept up Ditto as well.

Nancy this is a good soup for cooler days. Good for you too!

This is pumpkin season and I always go a little crazy with pumpkin treats like pumpkin English muffins, pumpkin Cheerios, pumpkin yogurt, etc. This is a dessert for 2 that I've been making in the microwave for days now.

1/2 t. ground organic cinnamon
1/4 t. ground organic ginger
3/4 cup cold milk
1 pkg. ( 3.3 oz.) instant white chocolate pudding mix (used Hershey's)

In small bowl, whisk the pumpkin, cinnamon, & ginger. Add milk & pudding mix; whisk for 2 min. or until soft-set. Transfer to individual serving dishes. Refrigerate until serving. Garnish w/whipped topping. (Note! I just discovered that McCormick now has their organic spices

Light and Tender Cream Scones/Biscuits Recipe
(approx 8 scones)

2 cups cake flour, spooned into measuring cup and leveled-off
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
3 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 large egg
2/3 -3/4 cup heavy cream (do not substitute milk or light cream)

For Topping
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon demerara sugar (also called raw sugar or turbinado)

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine the cake flour, salt, baking powder and sugar in the bowl of food processor fitted with metal blade. Pulse several times to combine.

Add the cold butter and pulse quickly until mixture resembles course meal with pea-size clumps of butter within.
Add egg and 2/3 cup of heavy cream and pulse just until mixture comes together in clumps. The dough should be a bit sticky. If it seems dry, add remaining 2 tablespoons heavy cream and pulse quickly again until just combined.
Dust a work surface lightly with flour, then dump scone dough onto surface. Knead very gently a few times until dough comes together into a ball. (Sprinkle more flour, little by little, if dough is too sticky to work with.) Press dough into a flat circle about 3/4-inch high, then use a sharp knife to cut into 8 triangles. Transfer wedges to prepared baking sheet. Brush lightly with beaten egg and sprinkle with demerara sugar. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until tops are lightly golden and firm to the touch. Serve warm with butter or softly whipped cream and jam.
