Along Came a Spider...

I'll be the first to admit I hate spiders, but for some reason, I kind of like these cookies.  Maybe if real life spiders were bright colored I might like them, umm, probably not. 
 
Remember when I wasn't going to buy any more stuff for Halloween?  Well, it was only a dollar, so I don't think this really counts.  And it wasn't my fault.  I had to stop at the post office and right next door was the Dollar Store.  I mean, I didn't plan where the Dollar Store would be, right?
 
Anyway, I stopped in and found the little foam shaped spiders.  They were hanging there, in plain site, I had to buy them because I had a plan.

Yard Line Rice Krispie Treats!

I sure make a lot of Rice Krispie Treats, don't I?  This idea can be used on cookies, brownies or any other bar you like.  For some odd reason RKT are the first to come to mind.  Maybe because I can have them made before you can say snap, crackle, pop.

Eyeball Cupcakes!

I really didn't plan to make anything too creepy this Halloween.  But I went shopping.  Shopping always leads to a purchase I didn't plan.  Trust me when I say, I didn't have bloody eye gumballs on my shopping list.  And I can't help it if I didn't stick to the plan.

Anyway, I found creepy eye gumballs, making the perfect topper for the cupcakes.

Fall Cookies!

Have you heard the news?  There are new cookie cutters in town and I couldn't sleep until I had my hands on them.  Once I actually had them, I couldn't sleep because I was dreaming up cookies to make with them. 

Sweet Sugarbelle has created the sweetest cookie cutter line ever.  They are more than cutters, they are multipurpose cutters!  Each cutter has use for more than one design and not only do they show how to decorate, her cutters also include templates to follow.  To find more information on the cutters, checkout her blog HERE.

Fun Food Blogger Retreat!

You know when you're so excited for something and then it happens and it's over way too soon?  Well, that just about sums up the Fun Food Blogger Retreat I attended a few weeks ago.  You see, for weeks and weeks I was looking forward to the retreat hosted by Beth of Hungry Happenings, and sponsored by Wilton and Farm Rich
 
Now it's over, but definitely not forgotten!

Game On with Wilton!

Whenever it's time to get together and watch football with family and friends, I'm in charge of dessert.  No one ever asks me to bring anything involving protein.

I was so excited to use the Wilton candy melts in my favorite teams colors and the Wilton mini cake pans were the perfect size to make my brownies!  This is how I want to kick off my football season, how about you?

Halloween Cookies!

It's official. Fall. September. Halloween.  All at the same time, or at least everywhere I turn I see Fall and Halloween stuff.  And so far...no Halloween purchases. You see I'm trying to just say no when it comes to buying more stuff.  Sometimes it's hard and I don't know if I'll get through the season without buying something new.  Unless, someone casts a spell on me.  I think my husband might have those powers.  We'll see.
 
Anyway, because I've made so many Halloween cookies, I decided to share them with you.  And by sharing, I mean share the photos, you don't actually get to eat them. Sorry.

Mini S'more Pie!

I made it mini, but you can make it any size you want.  Individual desserts are always a win win in my book because I love being able to set them out for people to serve themselves.  Plus, when cut into for a photo, I only have a small amount to eat versus an entire pie.  Because you know what happens when I'm left alone with sweets.  Anyway, I needed to get this made so you can enjoy it over the weekend too!

Cookie Decorating Tips & Tricks!

It's been awhile since I've done a guest post for Beth of Hungry Happenings, so I was excited to share a few of my cookie decorating tips and tricks with her readers.  While searching for a few tips and tricks to share from my blog, I almost overstayed my welcome.  It wasn't easy, however I was able to narrow it down to these six.
