Spooky Spider Web Soup and Halloween Fun with The Wisest Kid #MmGood

Spider Web Tomato Soup with Spider Shaped Grilled Cheese Sandwiches #MmGood #AskWisestKid

This year we started our festivities with a few local trick-or-treating events where Miss Kaydee dressed up as a Glenwood Titans Cheerleader and Miss Emma dressed up as her favorite Disney Princess, Ariel.

Browned Butter Sugar Cookies with Candy Corn Sprinkles

Browned Butter Sugar Cookies

When it comes to holiday baking, there's one sweet treat is my absolute favorite above all others ... sugar cookies. Don't get me wrong, I love the spooky appetizers, candy, candy corn decorated desserts and caramel apples but sugar cookies ... mmm ... they're the best. More times than not I prefer to do rolled and cut sugar cookies that are all different holiday themed shapes. But they're also more time consuming and messy. After a single … [Read more...]

October Kitchen Challenge | Green Apple Saltwater Taffy

Green Apple Saltwater Taffy Recipe

I love a good challenge, especially in the kitchen. With no formal training, pretty much everything I try in my kitchen is a new-to-me experience ... including this saltwater taffy. Up until now I've never even considered making taffy. Every year I fill up on a one pound box of Sutter's Taffy at the State Fair. It's perfection, so why mess with that? Well ... because I can. Ha!

Candy Corn Rice Krispies Treats Pops for Halloween

Candy Corn Rice Krispies Treats Pops

Candy corn ... you either love it or you hate it. Personally, I love it, but not in the way you might think.
