Halloween Food:  The Mummy's Hand..

Happy weekend… this is from several years ago, but it was so good, I thought it deserved a repeat!

My dear creative friend, Chad, made this for the Halloween party …  and was kind enough to give us a tutorial, so we can all make our own!

Halloween Food: Dot’s Mozzarella Eyeballs

Halloween Food: Dot's Mozzarella Eyeballs

These Mozzarella Eyeballs have been a staple of my Halloween party food for several years now.  They are delicious, and suitably creepy!

The curse of Halloween food blogging is that many of my Halloween delicacies, made up for the Halloween party, are done at the last minute.  So I can’t write them up very well before Halloween, and it seems silly to post the recipes AFTER Halloween.  So I was noticing that some of my really cool Halloween treats are relegated to quick photo posts, rather than giving them the treatment they deserve.  … [ KEEP READING ]

St Patrick’s Day cooking…

St Patrick's Day cooking...

St. Patrick’s day is coming up… got any cooking plans?  Here are some of the recipes shared previously on Foodwhirl.com.

Planning ahead for Holiday Cookie/Candy Baking

Here’s a few cookie ideas that I’ve posted and linked to in the past, that I thought were worth a repeat!

Start planning ahead now… many cookie recipes can be made ahead and frozen, which makes things easier when the season gets more hectic. Plus, that leftover halloween candy you’ve been trying to get rid of is great for replacing chocolate chips in your fave chocolate chip cookie recipe!

Just. Too. Awesome. Star Wars Party Food

Just. Too. Awesome.  Star Wars Party Food

I’m blown away by the awesomeness of this Star Wars party by Just Jenn. From the cutest lil Princess Leia cupcakes to clever Cloud City Pops, to Yoda Soda (straight from Dagobah!) to Carbonite Jello (complete with Han Solo action figure!), this is a great spread… She even did a deathstar watermelon (remember our deathstar cantaloupe from the Star Wars party this summer)?  There’s bunches more too…
