KAREN CIMMS/TIMES NEWS Cream of Broccoli Soup

As soon as there is a bit of a nip in the air, I start thinking about soup. Whether for lunch, dinner, or just a snack to ward off a couple of hunger pangs or an early autumn chill, soup is the answer. It's even better when it's easy to prepare.

This recipe is adapted from one given to me by a friend many years ago. It's thick and rich and very flavorful, thanks to a pinch of nutmeg and cayenne, but it's also just as good, and better for you, if you substitute the high fat ingredients.

Either way, this soup is a winner.

Q. My skin has all kinds of small thingies on it like my father used to have. My doctor checks them out and says they are all harmless. But, what exactly are they?

As we age, most of us start sprouting an array of unwanted growths. Let's go over the common ones:

Liver spots: The official name for liver or age spots is "lentigines" from the Latin for "lentil." These are flat, brown with rounded edges and are larger than freckles. They are not dangerous.
