halloween treats

Halloween is just a few days away!!

Remember my pumpkin decor post? and my pumpkin seed post? Well this one is all about the kids!


Keep the kids busy after school (or during a halloween party) and have some fun with them.

These treats are simple, fun and so tasty!

Frankenstein Marshmallow Pops

Halloween Gingerbread House

Halloween Oreo Pumpkin Cheesecakes

Peanut Butter Jack o Lanterns

Goblin Goo Cups


Get the kids to draw a face on the clear plastic cup. In the meantime, prepare vanilla pudding and add a few drops of green food coloring. Let them help you fill the cups and top with crushed oreo or chocolate cookie. YUM!

Can you guys tell I love special occasions? I really think you can make it fun at any age. 

that’s all for now – wishing you all a wonderful evening!

* I do not own any of the photos posted above. I have collected them from various sites.

pumpkin seeds

Happy Sunday Everyone!

I posted about pumpkins and fall decor here, and now that Halloween is just a few days away I have some recipes for pumpkin seeds!

I usually like my pumpkin seeds baked with a tiny bit of olive oil and some salt but these bloggers had some suggestions I just had to try!

Caramel Pumpkin Seeds

Salt & Vinegar Pumpkin Seeds

Italian Seasoned Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Sweet & Spicy

Cinnamon Sugar



Have any of you tried pumpkin seed brittle?? I saw this recipe but haven’t tried it yet! It’s on the list.

Tomorrow I’ll be posting recipes for fun Halloween treats to bake with the kids.

wishing you all a wonderful day!



fall decor: pumpkin inspiration

Happy October 1st!

I can’t believe September has already come to an end however I have so many things to look forward to this month and I cannot wait to share with all of you.

Also, I’ve been told I can now decorate the house with fall & halloween pieces (yay!)

I wanted to share some ideas with all of you, so go pick up a few pumpkins and have fun decorating simply and creatively.

Oh the magic of paint! Using paint to customize your pumpkins allows you to create a style and theme to your home decor.

We all know I love a little sparkle! Use white craft glue and glitter or a glue gun and plastic spiders or pompoms to create unique pumpkins.

I absolutely love this idea and it’s so easy! use what you’ve got. Put the pumpkin in stockings.

There are so many options to make your pumpkins look fabulous without carving!
