You know Halloween’s around the corner when these start appearing on the shelves. Pretty garish, eh? Or maybe just cute. Or maybe a little of both? I love them, nonetheless and was so happy to find an excuse to use them in these Mini Halloween Oreo Cheesecakes. The recipe was adapted from one called “All […]

Candy anyone? Fuzz made quite a haul! I guess no one could resist a cute little fairy with a hockey injury? That, and it was Halloween. That little brown dot by her eye is a scab forming from last Wednesday when she got hit with a hockey stick in P.E.. So Halloween is done. …

Halloween Sugar Cookies

Today’s second cookie was something I threw together at the last minute, my excuse being that the cookies would be perfect for Friday’s class Halloween party.

Marbled Pumpkin Cookies

I came up with the idea for this cookie last night. It was inspired by Martha Stewart Living, where they did something similar with brownies. Wanting to do something a little different, I tried making a cookie version by combining a chocolate and pumpkin dough. This was the end result. The cookies tasted pretty good, […]

Halloween Cupcake

Fuzz’s class is having their monthly play date/Halloween party this afternoon, so I decided to bake some cupcakes. The first batch was vanilla and the second batch was based on this prize winning Taste of Home recipe submitted by Mary Bilyeu. The original title is Special Mocha Cupcakes, but if you are a real mocha […]
