Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any good recipes for Halloween, and Thanksgiving? I am looking at mostly Halloween right now and I have some old recipes but want to start with something new.

 

I am looking for:

 

Apple Pie (homemade)

 

Pumpkin Pie

 

and idk alot of other recipes that will make my family and friends happy to eat!

 

I have been looking at the foodnetwork site a lot, are there any other good sites for these types of recipes?

 

Thanks!

For this time of year, I like to make roasted root vegetables.

 

I peel and chop sweet potatoes, parsnips, carrots, rutabagas, or other root veggies. Then I toss them in olive oil and pressed garlic and sprinkle on some salt and pepper. Roast them on a shallow pan in the oven at 325 degrees until softened and browned. Yummy!

 

Also, I've seen cute Halloween recipes in magazines at the library, so you might want to check there.

In the past, we have made cupcakes, about 10 or so and put them in the shape of a jack o' lantern.

 

I put 9 cupcakes in a square, and they're iced with orange. Then, I make a face on the cupcakes with black icing. I usually put the black icing over the orange icing so I don't have to sit there planning out exactly what icing goes where.

 

Then I put 1 or 2 cupcakes on top with black icing on them as the stem.

 

I don't have a specific recipe since any cupcakes would work, but it is a pretty cool thing as a whole.

That's pretty neat, and I know my little siblings and their friends will like that. We have a good cupcake recipe to go with that, thanks so much, I think I am ready to write my own recipe book!;)

This is delicious:

From Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone

 

12 oz bag cranberries

2 peeled tangerines or an orange

(optional) 2 drops orange oil

1/2-3/4 cup sugar

salt

3 T finely chopped walnuts

(optional) 1 teas orange flower water ...this makes it SPECIAL

 

 

Wash berries, pulse with chopped peeled citrus in food processor to a

mince (or grind through a meat grinder), stir in the rest, starting with

1/2 cup sugar, and then taste. Add more sugar if needed. A little dab of honey is nice, too.

 

 

 

I eat this by the bowlful. It is good with cottage cheese for a quick lunch. Or, toast some WW bread, smear with cream cheese, and put a layer of this on.

It will keep for about 6 days, and doubles well.
