Wow–that poll was fun! Looks like most people love stuffing!

Today let’s try something else new! I’ve got a great cookbook to give away to one lucky reader.

Simply leave a comment with your suggestion for how I can improve my blog or things you’d like me to write about.

In one week, next Wednesday night, I’ll use to pick a winner. (If you’re ever running a raffle or contest, that’s a great service to use, to keep things totally fair!)

If you don’t know me personally, make sure to leave me an e-mail or some other way to contact you, so I can  find out how you want me to get your prize to you.

I can’t wait to hear all your ideas!

Good Luck!!



A Halloween Cookbook Review

In this edition of my Halloween Countdown, I want to take the opportunity to recommend one of the best Halloween cookbooks you can own: Ghoulish Goodies, by Sharon Bowers.

It celebrates the true creepiness of the holiday and has inspired many of the recipes that are posted here and that I’ve served at Halloween parties over the years.

There are plently of sweets, like Pumpkin Spice Vanilla Fudge and Carmel Apples, but also some savory treats like “Cheddar Eyeballs,” which is a buttery, flaky appetizer that is so good I make it all year round.

Sharon Bowers is also the author of a book called Candy Construction, in which she describes dozens of objects you can build using–you guessed it–candy! She is so creative and talented, you should definitely get one or both of her books!
