Happy Halloween and Creepy Crawler Spiders

Posted by in Holidays

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Looks Delicious! (Halloween Creepy Crawler Spiders, submitted by Nancy of Coupon Clipping Cook)

 
Tomorrow’s the big day! Are we ready for some costumes, candy and scary fun? Are you heading to a Halloween party or hosting your own? These Creepy Crawler Spiders from TK member Nancy would be a perfect spooky treat. With just a few easy steps, they’d be fun to make with the kids, too. You’re just a couple bags of melted chocolate chips and some candy eyeballs away from these tasty creatures.

We hope you have a safe, fun and delicious Halloween whether you’re trick-or-treating, screaming your way through a haunted house, or staying cozy inside with some cider and a basket of candy by the door.

Looks Delicious! Pumpkin Tiramisu

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Looks Delicious! (Pumpkin Tiramisu, submitted by TK member Christina of Dessert for Two)

Pumpkin is everywhere this time of year, as we all can’t help but notice. I tend to get a little bit overloaded with pumpkin recipes before I’ve even had a chance to make very many. I’m always looking for fresh, new things to do with pumpkin, and this Pumpkin Tiramisu from TK member Tina of Dessert for Two stopped me in my tracks. You can’t go wrong with tiramisu, and pumpkin mascarpone sounds like just about the best concoction I’ve heard of all week. It’s an easy recipe, too. Just needs to chill for a few hours.

Hope you’re doing some good baking and cooking with pumpkin. Enjoy something sweet this weekend. You deserve it!

Looks Delicious: Sausage Breakfast Bagel Strata

Tasty Kitchen: Looks Delicious! (Sausage Breakfast Bagel Strata, submitted by member Justine Sulia of Cooking and Beer)

Do you look forward to making breakfast on the weekend? I love the leisurely pace of it, plenty of time to make something from scratch without simultaneously having to pack lunches or scurry around getting myself—and possibly other humans—dressed. Also, it’s the weekend. Something a little rich or decadent is allowed. I always get excited to have houseguests, because I love waking up a little earlier and making scones or muffins. Typically, family and friends don’t mind being offered something warm from the oven first thing in the morning. Serious hostess points.

Sometimes, though, it’s great to prep a dish the night before and then just pop it in the oven and enjoy some idle time sipping your coffee. Or, let’s be real, doing some laundry, or playing legos with a 6-year-old … just a hypothetical. This Sausage Breakfast Bagel Strata from our wonderful member Justine would be great for company and can be assembled the night before. I love the idea of a breakfast strata made with bagels. Looks darn delicious. Hope you enjoy some yummy breakfasts this weekend!
