Honey Apple Spice Muffin 
Apples of every stripe are in the markets now. This recipe makes a dozen muffins, so you will have leftovers for afternoon tea, or freeze them for another day.

Pumpkin Cauliflower Soup  

What could be more appropriate for Halloween than pumpkin soup? At 95 calories a serving and loaded with nutrients, this dish might offset some candy consumption this evening.

Magic Mushroom Medley Pizza 

This pizza is loaded with mushrooms and provides a good opportunity to explore some of the many varieties available in markets beyond the common button mushroom. Try the exotic oyster or cremini mushrooms for a new flavor sensation. This recipe calls for making pizza on the grill, which is great if you are having a party this evening. If you prefer, it's easy to adapt the recipe for your kitchen oven.
