Halloween Recipe Round-Up

Now that I've gotten this off my chest, I can write about Halloween.


I think your Halloween day would be perfected with:

This Pumpkin Pie Smoothie for breakfast

And some oatmeal with fresh fruit for you and your family. You probably are trying to pack as many health-giving nutrients into your child's tummy throughout the day, to prepare for the candy mania...

A quick and easy recipe of Pumpkin Macaroni and Cheese for lunch.

With a very big "sanity salad" and oil-free dressing for Mommy. Or maybe you prefer a dressing and salad like this?

And an easy, (pictured) Golden, crowd-pleasing soup to bring to that Halloween potluck, or fuel those cute little fairies and puppy dogs on their nights' spook-fest. Paul and I also love this Hearty Vegetable Soup, and Coconut Corn Chowder is another favorite, crowd-pleaser.

With a side of scarily-delicious chocolate cookies (sans tummy ache!) so you don't have to feel deprived as all the donuts and other masses of junk food are served.

And, good news folks, I am starting to get into perfecting the oil free, whole food cake. Hope to see one around here, sometime soon.

Next up, is Thanksgiving. I am becoming a total believer in seasonal eating. I can't believe what a difference it makes to eat fruits and vegetables, in their season. Not only are the prices fantastic (my grocery bill has gone way down!) but I feel amazing when I eat food in it's season.

I will try to find and post as many seasonal recipes as I can, as Thanksgiving fast approaches. (No promises, though, cuz I don't do well with pressure.)

I hope you have a wonderful Halloween. Stay safe, and keep those kiddos warm. (And steal some of their candy, no Halloween is complete without imposing candy taxes!)


  1. Are you going to post your pumpkin bread recipe? I was looking forward to that :)

  2. Yes, I will try to post it. My kids love it, but Paul said it was a tad cakey. I think I will work on it some more, and see if I can perfect it. Thanks for the request, I think it would be a great addition to Thanksgiving recipes!
