Five Halloween Recipes to Make you Scream!

posted in: Lifestyle 0

Halloween recipes are everywhere and thank goodness. Each year, I look for ideas to shock and amaze my family. I love watching their faces when they walk into the dining room. There is something about this holiday that brings out the boo factor in all of us.

The truth is, I started making weird and wacky Halloween recipes because I was jealous. I am a creative person but that skill does not transfer over to making things scary. I am impressed with the use of red dye and gelatin. And yes, I have been grossed out quite a few times by bowls of wiggly eyeballs.

Making Halloween recipes is another great way to bring the family together in the kitchen. You can even incorporate reading and math into the experience. I can’t help myself. I used to be a third grade teacher and a 7th grade teacher. Leaning into a plant-based lifestyle gives me the opportunity to continue to educate. Everything is a learning moment!
