We’re teaming up with other food and garden bloggers to host Fall Fest 2010, a season-long garden party. Each week we’ll feature favorite garden-to-table recipes and tips to help you enjoy the bounty, whether you’re harvesting your own goodies or buying them fresh from the market. To join in, check out awaytogarden.com.

So, summer’s officially ending tomorrow, but so what? There’s no reason to be blue. Fall’s got plenty to offer: Winter squash, football games, pick-your-own apple orchards and (finally!) cooler temperatures. Just like my box of sweaters, all the greens I loved in the spring are peeping out again, including Popeye’s favorite: spinach.  I’m celebrating the return of this all-purpose green with a batch of individually-sized spinach-mushroom quiches.

Quiche is a quintessential brunch treat, but it can be super-decadent and high-calorie.  This lightened-up version is made in muffin tins for easy portion control. It’s crustless, but it still has all the flavorful fillings of the decadent original: bacon, fontina cheese, onion, mushroom and, of course, spinach.

The spinach adds a concentrated punch of flavor, and you can really taste the difference when you use the fresh-from-the-ground (or the farmers’ market) kind. And at only 180 calories for 2 muffin-sized ones, who says you can’t have your quiche and eat it, too?

  6. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose .http://www.mulberrymarts.com
