From Eewww to Boo


This is my second Halloween blogging. And although I’m having fun playing with new recipes again this year, the truth is that there are many great recipes from years past that I’m making too. Each of my kids have their favorites and they’d be let down if I didn’t make them again.

So I thought that I’d bring those favorite recipes of Halloweens past to one blog post. A sort of compilation of Oooh, Eewww, and Boo.

Before you look through them, let me just apologize for the (lack of) quality of the pictures. I’m not a photographer in the best of circumstances but the camera I had then may have qualified as the worst of circumstances. The state of my earlier pictures were equipment failure. Unfortunately the state of my more current pictures is operator error.

Below are pictures of Halloween recipes I posted last year. Under each one is a link back to my original post where you’ll find the recipe. Let me know which ones you try. I just love when people make my recipes and then post a picture of it on my facebook page. If you’d like to do that, post your picture here: Baking In A Tornado on Facebook.

    1. The edible band-aids, yes. In fact my kids wouldn't eat them until I told them exactly what they were. And the witch's fingers only because of the cool bloody nail!

  6. Love them! Especially the candy corn poppers. Wish we had littles around here, or at least trick-or-treaters, but Halloween is sort of a bust where we are. :( Oh well...I still enjoy looking!

    1. I love Halloween baking so much I think I'd do it even without kids. We'll see what happens next year, I'll have to find a Day Care or someplace else to bring all the goodies.

  9. Last year, my daughter-in-law was in the hospital on complete bed rest for 5 weeks prior to the birth of their 3rd child on November 2. Lots of family members pitched in to help with the (then) 5 & 3 year olds still at home, so that my son could continue working. My week was the week prior to Halloween and I made the spider cookies with the kids. I don't remember the origin of the recipe, but I do know that I saw it on Facebook. Maybe it was yours!

  12. Your treats are so festive. I wish I would have known you when I was teaching. My students would have loved everyone of those treats. I made the candy corn poppers last year. There's a 2 percent chance someone in my family got to eat one too. I can't be sure.

    1. Love those poppers but they are definitely a dangerous size. I guess you found that out . . .
