Frankenstein Pasta

Halloween is right around the corner. So are ghosts, goblins, and witches…

And we totally bet they would go crazy (in a good, non-scary way) over these special Halloween recipes! Whip these up and enjoy a fun, creative food spread that everyone, even Frankenstein, will enjoy.

Bloody Cups

These aren’t as gross as what you might think based on the name. Think of them as chocolate peanut butter cups, but with raspberry filling instead! These are a great sweet treat for parties and are also vegan and gluten-free. Spooktacular!

Pumpkin Smash Martini

Halloween calls for crafty spirits and this one is perfect. Enjoy all the flavors of a pumpkin pie without the calories!

Chocolate Halloween Spiders

No doubt spiders are creepy. This fun recipe is really easy to prepare and is bound to spook anyone that passes by…before they devour these tasty treats.

Zombie Finger Snacks

No, these do not taste like actual zombie fingers (not that we know what those taste like…). They are shortbread with raw pumpkin seeds as the fingernails. So even though they look super gross, they are actually quite delicious. Grab one and take a bite!

Halloween is the perfect time to get creative and play with recipe ideas. Whether you’re entertaining or making recipes for the kids, there’s plenty of inspiration here to help.

Happy haunting!

 

 

The Best of Summer

 

 

Coconut Ice Cream

Well…the weather has definitely proven that it’s summer! And it sure has been an eventful season already.

The summer season is meant for lots of activities. Of course it’s a great time to enjoy the outdoors but temperatures are warm enough these days to make preparing food miserable. So when it’s time to start thinking about food, what can you make that doesn’t take a lot of effort while still being flavorful?

Here are a few recipes that will leave you satisfied instead of burned out (pun intended).

Fresh Veggie Summer Rolls

Veggies are a great choice for a healthy snack or quick lunch. These veggies rolls are stuffed with summer vegetables and can be wrapped with cucumber or zucchini. So cute and really tasty, all while being super healthy!

Squash Pancakes

To the naked eye, these look like crispy golden latkes but instead of potatoes, try grated summer squash. So good!

Summer Grilled Mexican Street Corn Quinoa Salad

It sounds like a mouthful, and it is in every way. This quinoa salad is full of so many delicious ingredients that it’s impossible not to love the combination. Plus, any day you can eat Mexican street corn is a good day!

Grilled Surf and Turf Salad

Ok, this recipe does actually require some flames from the grill but it’s worth trying to power through the summer heat for.  It’s a fun spin on traditional Surf & Turf – just add some fresh spinach and watercress and drizzle with a homemade dressing for a savory tossed salad dish full of flavor.

Don’t forget to save room for some homemade ice cream and refreshing drinks. Here’s a collection of other perfect summer recipes to enjoy.

Happy cooking!
