Halloween Food:  The Mummy's Hand..

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 ]

Tips for throwing a White Elephant holiday party

Tips for throwing a White Elephant holiday party

I’ve been a slacker about the holidays this year, and never got around to planning a christmas party. We usually do a White Elephant Gift Exchange with our friends, and it’s a lot of fun. This year, I think I’m just going to do the party in January, when everyone’s back from the holidays and might actually have a few white elephants they’d like to get rid of! And, conveniently enough, the invitation theme is Winter/Snowflakes, not any holiday per se.… [ KEEP READING ]

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…
