Halloween In The Kitchen

Halloween can be such a fun occasion to celebrate. Kids adore Halloween because of the costumes and the candy, but it’s been my observation that many adults get into the Halloween spirit too! Our street is a very popular trick or treating street, so our friends and family use our house as ground zero. They come and go depending on the age of their children, so we keep it simple as far as the food we serve, usually hot dogs and queso, but I can’t resist trying out some of the clever Halloween recipes that appear this time of year.


The Food Network site is full of fun kid-friendly recipes like Mac-O-Lantern and Cheese Bowls which are whole orange bell peppers with carved-out pumpkin faces filled with macaroni and cheese. What kid wouldn’t like that?  There is also a cute idea for Spider Snacks made from buttery round crackers, peanut butter and pretzels – easy enough for the kids to make by themselves. The great thing about this site is that there is a video for each recipe. Click here to view the Food Network site.

Neighborhood Appetizer Party

How about throwing an appetizer, or “Appy Hour” party this Halloween? Easy appetizers and quick drinks are the perfect way to start the spookiest night of the year! There are so many wonderful ideas and appetizer recipes on the My Recipes site. Most are quite simple to make, and many can be made ahead of time. Mini bagel pizza bites garnished with olives, red peppers and cheese is the perfect savory dish that won’t cause a toothache! Fried Goo with Dracula Dip is another quick and easy appetizer that is sure to be a hit with your guests. There are recipes for Ghoul-Aid Punch and Ghost Cookies and so much more!
