If you’re a fan of our show and have seen some of last year’s episodes, you’ll see that we are pretty big fans of Halloween. For me, Halloween is better than Christmas and for Alex and Soph, it’s a close second. It’s not just because of our love of dressing up like various fictitious characters and publicly flaunting how great we look; Nor is it for the pillowcases filled with sugary sweet candy, given to the kids willingly as we wander from house-to-house, sharing our beautifully detailed costumery with our neighbors. Although we can’t deny that those reasons are PART of our love for the holiday, the main reason is because it’s an awesome holiday for whipping up some scarily, creative food and having a party!
I realize it is only the first week of October, but for us, that means more weekends to celebrate with food. We love thinking up scary-themed menus and serving them up by candle light with all of our Halloween decorations glowing. Although we love inventing our own recipes, there are also tons of magazines and websites with endless ideas for us to try as well…we could honestly do an entire year’s worth of shows just on Halloween. But, we can’t, so we’ll just share some of the coolest stuff we’ve seen from around the web so far this year:
– Spooktacular Halloween Recipes – Trick Or Treat Chili – From the Mom Blog Network
– Fall / Halloween Recipes – From Paris Pastry
– Friday Finds: Halloween Recipes – From a Well-Crafted Party
– Fun Halloween Dessert Recipes – From MomFuse
– Eerie Halloween Eats – From Oregon Family
– Healthy Halloween Recipes – From Pickles ‘n Pumpkins
– Pumpkin Butter – From Gina’s Skinny Recipes
We know we get a little carried away with our bi-weekly Halloween parties here at the 2 Kids House; but we hope that your family takes a couple of these Halloweeny recipe ideas and throws at least one Family Halloween Party of your own.
Spook-tastic Family Cooking Everyone!
Alex, Soph and Mom
P.S. This year, we taped three quick new Halloween episodes that will be out in the comping weeks. In the meantime, check out our Halloween episodes and stuff from last year….Boo!
