While cleaning out my pantry (ugh, what a chore) I found some wooden bbq skewers that have been replaced by metal ones. What do I do with these? The little wheels in my mind started grinding and I came up with this idea for my Halloween Boo-ffet.
These are so oh Eerie and real like!
Great as is just pop into your mouth, or as a garnish for drinks, or for eyes on your favorite monster cake. These are so easy to make, your guests will squirm! A tasty good TREAT!
Another one of my no-flame-required, kid-friendly recipes. I remember making these in my after school program in grade school and loving them. They are a great wholesome activity for kids parties...just make sure an adult slices the apples. My favorite Apples to use are Pink Lady because the tart flavor is a nice compliment to the Peanut Butter. For a healthier variation, use cubed Slightly Green Bananas instead of Marshmallows...ripe bananas may be mushy. If you are worried about Peanut Butter allergies, substitute Cashew Nut butter as it is far less common to be allergic to.
This is for the crafty cook and those looking to have one heck of a good time. This imaginative forest is completely edible. I came across it in my travels on BHG and I have absolutely no idea how long this would take to make so I am just putting in an hour so the Zaar puter will accept the recipe. Enjoy!

From Family Fun. It looks like a big slice of watermelon! I will try once we get the ingredients. Who knows, maybe it will make me a lover of honeydew! They don't give amounts for the sorbet, so I'm guessing on that.
WAY back in the 80's, I attended chef school and one of the recipes we made was for a Buche Noel. It was very labor intense, but very tasty and very pleasing to the eye...If you have the time it is well worth it
I saw this recipe on cooking.com and thought it was so cute. My neighbor often does holiday projects with her grandchild and other small relatives and I get to tag along. Hoping we can do this one. If you have the right cookie cutters, these could work for any holiday.
I saw Paula Deen make this on Foodtv for a Halloween show and it looked like so much fun. DS and I did have a blast making it. DS thought it was so great to have a snake for dinner. More fun with food! :) Change the meats & cheeses to whatever tickles your fancy. I mostly "eyeballed" when making this so not sure if I used the exact amounts specified. I didn't need a whole bell pepper so got a couple of strips from the grocery salad bar. Now what to do with the rest of the jar of olives!?!
This recipe come from The Searchlight Cookbook, 1935. This graced our table every holiday. It's color is deep red and very festive. The flavors are sweet, piquant and totally fascinating. Use a fancy mold.
