Since today is Halloween, I thought that I would share our menu for this evening. When children are small, it’s very difficult to get them to eat anything for dinner before heading out to Trick or Treat. One of the traditions in our house is that we always serve something Ghoulish for dinner, so that the pre-trick or treat meal is also part of the […]
I love to make variations on simple recipes. I am in love with the candies that are made by melting either hugs or kisses on top of pretzels and smashing them down with either a candy or a nut. I have already publishes three variations on this recipe, but I had to do just one more. You can find the versions with candy corn, marshmallow […]
This is another one of my non-recipes. It’s just a cooking technique that effectively changes a very kid friendly dish, macaroni and cheese, into something a bit more ghoulish for Halloween. The entire process is very simple. All you need is a box of macaroni and cheese plus all of the ingredients needed to prepare it along with some green food coloring.
I have always thought that cauliflower florets looked like brain tissue with the undulating shape of the florets on the dense surface. As a result, I have attempted to transform them into something ghoulish and frightening for Halloween.

Today’s post is going to use a deviled egg recipe that was previously posted here at Patty Cake’s Pantry as the base, but we are going to make a few changes to the finished product to produce something a little more […]
The name of this post sounds like the headline from a tabloid. Candy Corn was seen hugging Pretzel. “Who knew that someone so sweet would melt for someone so tough and salty?” It sounds like a good start, right? I didn’t really know what to call this recipe, but as I was thinking about the ingredients, candy corn, hugs, and pretzels, I settled upon the […]
This post is my community service post for better nutrition before I start posting all of the candy and cookie recipes for the upcoming holidays. We should all strive to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet. This post is my contribution toward that goal. I know someone is reading the title of this post and thinking “Aren’t most Jack-o-Lanterns orange?” They are, but allow me […]
Holidays don’t necessarily mean that you have to ignore your grocery budget. In fact, holiday treats can often be pulled together from things that you already have on hand as long as you have a well stocked pantry and plan ahead. Candy for the trick-or-treaters still has to be budgeted, but fun food for the family is already in the bag. Lets take a look […]
