Strange But Good Halloween Recipes

If there's ever a time to let your freak-flag fly*, it's Halloween. *Assuming you ever bother to hide it. This Halloween I'm letting my flag fly in full-on Rocky Horror fashion.  Complete with a costume I cannot believe I'm actually going to leave the house in. In lieu of a new recipe this week, I thought it appropriate to round up some of my favorite not-so-normal recipes.  Translation: I got busy and haven't taken pics of anything I've made.  Or made much, for that matter. 1. Roasted Pumpkin Pumpkin itself isn't all that strange, but I'm willing to bet most of you have never roasted your own.  They're delicious - 100x better than the canned stuff.  I don't do it all the time... because patience... but you owe it to yourself to do it at least once this … [Read More...]

PB&J Yogurt Bowl

PB&J Yogurt Bowl Recipe + WIAW

Staple foods.  We all have them. Some of us have them literally.

He emailed … [Read More...]
