I grew up with 2 1/2 acres of walnut grove for a back yard, and my earliest distinct memory is the bitter, urgent scent of crushed walnut leaves. My father had bought the land just before I was born with the idea that the walnuts would cover the property taxes of our new home. The San Fernando Valley had been a walnut-growing center for a long time, though, and the trees were old and eventually they didn't crop enough to sell, but for a couple of years in the '40s, I was a walnut-farming kid.

The few cool days we've had this season have put my taste buds in an autumn mood. Warm and homey baked casseroles sending good smells through the house are a more than fair trade for less sunshine and slowly approaching cold weather (OK, maybe not cold, but at least cooler). This sumptuous and filling breakfast takes advantage of seasonal tart apples. They meld well with the Italian triple-cream cream cheese used here, also known as mascarpone.

DEAR SOS: The Piret M Bistro Gallery in Encinitas, Calif., makes a wonderful chicken salad with apples and walnuts. The dressing is especially good. The recipe would be greatly appreciated.--LISA DEAR LISA: The salad, according to Piret M Bistro Gallery, is a favorite on luncheon menus, bridal and baby showers and buffets, since it can be made well ahead of time and requires no last-minute fuss. And you can't beat that, especially around the holiday season.
