Here’s a sure way to get your trick or treaters in the mood for Halloween. This easy Monster Meatloaf Halloween Dinner recipe puts a different presentation on a homecooked meatloaf full of hearty nutrition.
Candy corn are the rage this Halloween season… at least in my household. We love Halloween and we love to decorate! Why not do it with one of favorite Halloween treats? This Candy Corn Mason Jar Craft is simple and affordable to make.
First things first – do NOT eat the trees! There is a wire in them. Everything else is edible. These are yummy and adorable Halloween centerpieces! The original post says they are not edible, however it’s because of the black wire they used. Instead of black wire, I twisted my trees together and then used black electrical tape to tie it together. [Read more…]
No matter how you carve, slice, steam, roast, drink it, I LOVE PUMPKIN! (Carve as in pumpkins, slice as in pie, steam as in cook, roast as in seeds, drink as in latte….)
This year I carved one pumpkin and cooked another. I wish I had taken a picture of my carved pumpkin before I fed it to the buffalo. Next year…. My other pumpkin I cooked in a way similar to how I steam squash. Scoop out the seeds and goo in the middle, peel, chunk it up, and steam it until soft. I had SO MUCH pumpkin! I used some of it for my healthy organic pumpkin brownies and some of it I used for these scrumptious whoopie pies.
Here’s what I did:
Ha ha!! Healthy and brownies in the same title! My sister Chris challenged me to come up with a healthy brownie recipe a few weeks ago after she published her own healthy brownie recipe. She nailed it when she said that I’m an organic, natural kind-of person. I like that she makes me think and urges me outside my comfy box, but — gee, I’ve got stuff going on and little time to come up with a wa-zoo recipe! Ah, the pressure…. Tis the season for pumpkins, however; and adding veggies to dessert makes it healthy automatically, in my opinion. Right? Right?
Anyway, following is my response:
Fun, fun, fun! These yummy appetizers are a great addition for any Halloween party! Deviled eggs are one of my favorites at any party I go to. They are so easy to make that I usually volunteer to bring them. With this cute affordable idea, I can’t wait for the Halloween party this year! Guaranteed to be a hit!

Creepy Crackled Halloween Eggs are the perfect Halloween snack! It’s a creative and spooky way to serve up those every day eggs with a little Halloween excitement. Children will have fun making them. They are easy, affordable and a better choice than candy!
Here’s what we did:
I saw this little craft on Pinterest a while ago so we started saving our paper towel and toilet paper roll tubes. It took about 2 minutes to make but is really going to spook those trick or treaters this Halloween! Peek-a-Boo monster eyes are spooky and creepy and easy to make from recycled toilet paper and paper towel rolls and glow sticks. I love this project because we are recycling and can get glow sticks at the dollar store. This project only costs about $1 to make!

Halloween this year for my house has a candy corn theme going on. I don’t know how it happened but each DIY project I was attracted to was candy corn related. First the Candy Corn Cones and then the Wine Bottle Candy Corn Light and now these easy and tasty candy corn crafts!
These tasty projects made with actual candy corn were a lot of fun. They are great for all ages and if there’s a candy corn that splits, YUM! That works too.
The candy corn bracelet, necklace and garland are all created the same way. EASY!
Here’s what we did:
Last night I made the candy corn cone craft I’ve been seeing around everywhere and I thought they were great but I wanted to brighten it up a bit. With all the excitement of meeting Kathie Lee Gifford over the weekend I also had wine on my mind. 😉 And on my way to work this morning, when I talked to my sister about it, we came up with this quick and easy wine bottle candy corn light. Tonight I worked through it as it was a little bit trickier than the candy corn cones. The smooth surface and shape of the bottle created a little challenge but was well worth it!
Here are the steps:
Is it really only 2 weeks until Halloween? Wow! Time flies by when you are crafting! The fall leaf rose was such a success a lot of our projects took a back burner as we answered our fans’ comments on the blog and on Facebook and made the video tutorial for leaf roses. But now we are back to creating, crafting, and sharing! We stumbled on to these candy corn cones last night at Adventures of Goldilox and just had to try them! So easy, affordable supplies, and they come out so darn cute, what’s not to love?! Because you can put them inside or outside, they are perfect for brightening up any decor and bringing out the good feelings of this time of year.
Looking for easy DIY ways to decorate your house for Halloween? Last night we spent about an hour and a half letting our creative juices flow to bring our front door to life. Our once friendly and inviting door has transformed in to a funny ghoulish monster that Bill’s 12 year old daughter and I created. In my opinion, all doors have a character hidden inside them and as we started out, we let our monster take shape.
All we used was paper and tape. Here’s what we did: [Read more…]
Pumpkin Seeds are one of the best parts of Halloween! There’s nothing like slow roasting pumpkin seeds on a cool crisp October day while the family carves their pumpkins and decorate for the Fall. Below is my recipe for how to roast pumpkin seeds:
1. Select a pumpkin.
Remove the insides (pulp and seeds). Creating a jack-o-lantern is optional but a lot of fun!
My sister and I live in a small town with very few places to shop and even fewer places to buy unique and affordable Halloween costumes. I don’t know how many times one of us would go to a Halloween party and discover one or two other people dressed like us. It was so embarrassing! But now we order our costumes online and save money, time, and find original costumes. With thousands of place to choose from online, variety is a given!
Below are my top 3 favorite places to shop online for Halloween costumes and costumes for other occasions.
