Frightfully Good Halloween Candy

Trick Out Your Halloween Party

If Labor Day marks the end of summer, Halloween kicks off the holiday party season. In our house, with a spunky five-year old, we love dressing up in costumes all year long. So when Halloween comes around, the only problem is deciding what to wear – every day my son comes up with a new idea for his trick-or-treat outfit!

Attack of the Candy Creatures

These Halloween treats are your secret weapon to fend off sugar-crazed kids without falling victim to the really scary stuff — hydrogenated fats, artificial preservatives and colors.

Roast or Toast Pumpkin Seeds

Packed with protein, zinc, iron and antioxidants, these little green guys are the perfect garnish. From soups to pasta and more, add their sweet flavor and fun crunch to your fall meals.

Treats, No Tricks

Trick or Treat! To many of us, those words are terrifying. Not because of the all those ghosts and goblins wandering around. It’s because of the shocking amount of candy in our midst. All those horrifyingly unnatural artificial colors and flavors and all those preservatives better suited for a mummy than a mommy. Eeeeekkk!

Harvesting Mystery Pumpkins

September is an overlap month in the world of vegetables. Tomatoes, squash, corn and other summer vegetables are still available in abundance and while most of these are still quite good, the cool fall evenings and crisp mornings bring with them that familiar tug in my tummy to the hardier greens and roots of fall.
