Thanks for stopping by! We love what we do here at the Mr. Food Test Kitchen and, because we couldn't have this much fun without you, we thought we'd share some behind-the-scenes moments, stories, step-by-steps and other tidbits you might find useful, interesting or just down-right silly. So, have a cup of cocoa and stay a while, 'cause family is always welcome in our kitchen, and, as we like to say around here...
Admit it–you bought more candy for the trick-or-treaters this year than you really needed to because you didn’t mind having some leftovers around the house. Am I right? Is it just me?
Whether you perpetually sneak pieces of candy out of your child’s Halloween bag or you like to take advantage of the clearance aisles at department stores the day after, I bet you’ve got plenty of chocolate and other sweets lying around the house, calling your name every time you pass by the kitchen. Instead of just staying in a constant snacking mode, however, it’s time you looked at this as an opportunity to get a little creative with your cooking. And I’ve got a few ideas to get you started.
Pumpkin spice may be the king of the season, but apples aren’t far behind, especially in the month of October. (Did you know that October is National Apple Month?) At this point in the season, you’ve probably already eaten, seen, or thought far too long about apples. And you’re probably not even ashamed to admit it. Apples are good, they’re part of a healthy diet, and they make for some fun fall treats…like candy apples!
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays of the year. My friends come up with some of the most creative costumes; I’m always so impressed, especially when they’re topical. While I can never find much costume creativity for myself, I do look forward to finding a funny costume for my dog. (Don’t worry–he seems to enjoy it more than I do!)
Once you’ve got your perfect costume all picked out, you’ve got to show it off to everyone, right? It’s not going to do any good if you’re just hanging out in your swanky new costume watching Netflix. You’ve got to invite over your friends or head out to celebrate. After all, Halloween only comes once a year. If you’re stumped on what kinds of foods you ought to make to bring along, we’ve got a few Halloween party food ideas you’re going to love.
