So Halloween has officially come to a close. Due to the power outages in our areas and storm destruction Trick or Treat was postponed until yesterday. My kids were real troopers about it.
Costumes this year were easy my daughter, Cassie borrowed a zombie prom queen outfit from her friend my oldest son, Christian went as a hunter(all stuff he has in his closet) and my youngest son, Cameron went as a Varsity Football player.
Because of the craziness we had a party amongst ourselves. The kids really got into it. They helped me create some delicious food. It started with the Caramel Corn Treat Bags
and the Individual Pumpkin Pies

Next up was the Harvest Pumpkin Cupcakes... we ate these with no frosting and loved them.
Thank you Karo for such great food!!!
Now of course we couldn't eat all sugary goodness... So with some help from Pillsbury we added to the feast with Mummy Dogs... YUMMY! ... an army of them
and of course we had to try the Ham and Cheese rescent Roll ups
Now the kids not being quite satisfied insisted on Pizza... Creepy Mini Pizzas that is http://allrecipes.com/recipe/creepy-mini-pizzas/detail.aspx< . These were such an easy thing to throw together Thanks to Fleischman's pizza yeast. They are a definite must try! Creep faces or not!
to round out the meal we each had a delectable cup full of Pond Scum...http://allrecipes.com/recipe/pond-scum/detail.aspx<
This was great way to enjoy Halloween... even though it was postponed due to circumstances out of our control!
 My kids handled all decorations. They strung cobwebs from the ceilings and skeletons and monsters were jumping out around every corner. What a great way to come together as a family!

About Me
I have been married since 1995 and have 3 children. I started really cooking after I got married. I love hearing how great my cooking is. My kids are my best complimenters. I love talking to people about cooking and food! I have turned many non-cookers into cooks. My closest friend, for the longest time thought that baking a plain chicken breast was gourmet at its finest. I subscribed her to Taste of Home and introduced her to Allrecipes and now she cooks up a storm and its actually edible!
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy cooking most anything. During tomato season my favorite thing would be spaghetti sauce. During the Fall, I really enjoy soup and at the holidays it would be the pies and cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
At the holidays I have always helped my mom do the baking. It wasn't until the last few years that I realized how much I truly enjoy this. I am trying to engage my children more in the kitchen. I am not always the most tolerant when it comes to this but I am making a great effort to include them. I am hoping that some day they will remember the time they spent with me in the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
I made pies for Christmas one year at my In-laws house, it was great. Everyone raved and compared me to my husbands grandma, who passed away a couple of years ago. She was a truly fantastic cook and to be compared to her was wonderful.
My cooking tragedies
I remember trying to make a Pineapple Chicken dish when I was 16 for me and my brother. It was awful. The taste just wasn't right and the rice was undercooked. Needless to say the trash got more to eat than we did.
