Whooooo's ready for Halloween?

I am! Halloween is my favorite holiday. The weather, the costumes, the decorations, and especially the goodies!
I've never minded cooking, in fact I even like it most of the time, but I've never cared for baking until recently. I've been on a baking spree lately, usually making something every week. Now, it's Halloween cookies. I just couldn't resist making these cute little critters. Owls and black cats are the signs of the season around here this week!

PS: for those who were wondering, the homemade poptarts were AWESOME!

Lovin' from the Oven

Since Kellogg's poptarts are a no-no in this household, and Whole Foods is so far away, I decided to make my own poptarts today. I got the idea from the Chez Pim blog. (GREAT foodie blog, btw). These are strawberry filled with raw sugar sprinkled on top. They definitely look like they would taste better than the store-bought variety. The proof will come at breakfast tomorrow!

In honor of the day (and a challenge on Meg's blog), a made this little diddy.

Now you go get busy and make something too! :-)
