Portable Mistletoe

Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

Betty Crocker Halloween Cookbook ★★★☆☆

Betty Crocker Halloween Cookbook - Betty Crocker

This is a cute little cookbook of Halloween-themed recipes. It's well put together, with a photo of every recipe and some tips on throwing a Halloween party. I tried three pumpkin or jack-o-lantern related recipes from the book, as this was for the 2016 Halloween Bingo square for Pumpkin: An appetizer, a main dish, and a dessert. I had mixed results, but if I were a more skilled cook and had the palate of a small child who attends Halloween parties, they probably would have been more of a success. Overall, would recommend. 

 

Links to the recipes I tried:

Peppy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Pizza Pot Pie

Jack-O-Lantern Whoopie Pies
