I love this time of year and Halloween really makes fall official. It is also a reason to eat a lot of candy or should I say sweets/treats. I think sweet and treats sounds better than saying candy. What do you think?
This time of year beginning with Halloween you will find yourself surrounded by all kinds of sugary goodness. These last couple of years my Baby Chef and I have enjoyed making Halloween goodies. She loves helping me cook and she loves being involved with me in the kitchen. Last year we made a Halloween cake and cupcakes with candy corn and Pepperidge Farm Milano Cookies.
This year I was able to find some pretty simple recipes that seem to be kid friendly, fun and on a stick. This will make it easier to pass out and share with her friends next week. My Baby Chef will be able to get her hands in on all the Halloween fun! The recipes names, pictures and links are listed below.
Recipe #1 are Jack-O-Lantern Pops
Recipe # 2 are Peanut Butter Popcorn Balls.
Recipe #3 are Jack Skellington Oreo Pops
These are the recipes we will be attempting over the weekend. I will post our pictures later as Part 2 of this blog featuring The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. When you go to the links you will find many more recipes you can try. Feel free to comment back and share your pictures with me. Until then, I’ll be Hallowing at you later! LOL.

There’s no place like the STATE FAIR OF TEXAS! If you have never been, it’s an event you must add to your To Do List, Bucket List or whatever you want to call it list. Our state fair is held every year in Dallas, TX at the same time of the year. It begins the last Friday in September with a parade through Downtown Dallas and ends the thirds Sunday in October. This upcoming weekend will be the last weekend for the fair. So I am going share a few things we did and enjoyed. Also, I have a tip that I learned and I want to share with you as well.
This year the fair has something for everyone. My personal favorite is all about the food. I begin my fair day with my first stop at Fletchers Corny Dog. Fletchers is always my first stop after purchasing my coupons. Their booths are located throughout the entire park. There’s something special about that golden crispy fried batter wrapped around that hotdog on a stick, topped with that slightly spicy yellow Heinz Mustard. It’s heaven on a stick! The crunch from your first bite is exactly what you have been waiting for all year.
Some of my other favorites are Sausage On A Stick, the Roasted Corn on a stick, the Spiral Potato Chips and don’t let me forget about the Funnel Cake with the Strawberry Sauce on top. I hope you all don’t think I am eating all this alone! It’s all a shared effort with family and friends. We always take this opportunity to make this a family event. We’re all getting a taste of everything. We also took an opportunity to try new items such as, the Fried Jambalaya, the Fried Pecan Pie and also the Caribbean Pineapple with shrimp, chicken, rice and chunks of pineapple in a halved carved out pineapple bowl. This was enough to feed 2 people and 36 Coupons. I’m just saying!
The State Fair of Texas has everything, it has art, music, history, culture, museums, livestock, amusement rides, auto shows and so much more. As I stated earlier, there’s something for everyone. So try to make it out to the fair this weekend and have fun! If you’re not able to make it out for the last weekend, make sure you add it to your calendar for next year.
Oh yeah! Before I leave you, I wanted to share what I learned just recently. If you have coupons left over, those coupons are good to use next year. The fair coupons never expire!
Until next time!
