Another one has come and gone.  For this mother of five, Halloween has evolved quite a bit over the past 27 years.  Where once this time of year meant burning the midnight oil sewing costumes, visiting the local pumpkin patch and selecting our pumpkins, carving and roasting seeds, decorating our home and trick or treating, has now become waiting for the doorbell to ring to hand out candy to the neighborhood kids. 

I reminisce on Halloweens past with so many kids with fond memories, but I won't let all the fun of this fun time of year get by me.  I can still entice my kids to hang a while with mom in the kitchen and munch on some tasty treats. This year I tried the Karo Classic Caramel Corn
and the Individual Pumpkin Pies 

Both were loved by all.

I can SO relate to this Laura! Try as I might, none of my big boys would dress up as Wolverine this year :) We still had a blast and just love handing out the candy to the cute little ones in costume.

About Me
A wife and mom of five beautiful children who love to eat! I absolutely love living in south Orange County, CA. I enjoy cooking for my family almost everyday. I derive such happiness from feeding people and filling their tummies with good food!
My favorite things to cook
I have a favorite peach cobbler dessert that my hubby loves and it is so easy to make. It puts a smile on anyone's face.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas eve dinner and St. Patricks Day dinner. My husband and kids look forward to these dinners each year.
My cooking triumphs
I cooked a huge prime rib dinner for Christmas last year for a large family dinner (20+) and it was delicious although a couple family members could not get over the very pink meat!
My cooking tragedies
A lemon meringue pie I cooked when I was about 18 years old would not set and it was full of liquid when I cut it. My dad still teases me about this to this day!
