Hi Cooking Moms, Dads & Friends,

Happy Friday! It’s Halloween weekend. I know the kids are getting excited. My daughter, Ireland is 23 and she still loves Halloween.

Why not celebrate the weekend with some special treats? My Pumpkin Cupcakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting sound so fancy but they are super simple to make because they start with a boxed cake mix. LOVE THAT!

No time to bake this year? No big deal. Pick up some pudding and cookies and layer up my Ginger Snap Pudding Parfaits. Get the kids in the kitchen to help crush the cookies and put them together. Such fun!

There’s so much candy around Halloween. I say you gotta offer some healthy treats too. My Halloween Fruit Kabobs are so easy! I serve them with my Orange Fluff Dip. The kids can even help make these. Putting fruit on a stick and serving it with a delicious dip is a great way to make fruit more fun!

When the kids come home from trick or treating, or even better before they head out, I think it’s important they get something in their stomachs before they dive into the candy. My Spider Web Pizza is super easy! You can make mini pizzas too that the kids can help decorate.

For breakfast this weekend, why not WOW the family with my make ahead Pumpkin French Toast Bake? It’s perfect for a special fall breakfast. Makes the house smell so good when it's baking. The best part is that I can put the whole thing together the night before and just throw it in the oven Sunday morning. We love it with sausage or my Brown Sugar Bacon. So yummy! Click on Breakfast & Brunch for more great recipes.

It’s Crock-tober! This weekend is the perfect time to get out your slow cooker and make my Green Chili Pork Roast. Just dump it all in the slow cooker. Eight hours later you have some amazing shredded pork. Pile it on tortillas with loads of fixings. Serve it with my Spider Web Taco Dip. The kids will love it, and it's so cute and easy to do!

Click Slow Cooker and Appetizers for more tempting recipes. After a night out trick or treating come home and warm up with my Homemade Caramel Corn and a mug of Hot Caramel Apple Cider. What a perfect ending to a fun night! Click Drinks and Desserts for more fall favorites!

We’ll be there for 4 magical nights June 12-16, 2023 during Lilac Festival. The whole Island is covered in lilacs. It’s so gorgeous. It smells beautiful too!

Hotel rates on the island have sky rocketed but my trips are group trips and because of that we can negotiate the best deals. We worked hard to get the absolute BEST rates possible for lots of included things, like your ferry ride to the island, gourmet cooked-to-order breakfasts every morning at the resort, a wine tasting and lunch on our drive to get to the island, a big wine and cheese party, a delicious welcome dinner and more!
