Baked Pumpkin Spice Donuts

I love everything pumpkin flavored and these Pumpkin Spice Donuts are the perfect treat to welcome Fall this year. Pumpkin Spice Donuts Fall has always been my favorite time of year.  When we moved to the desert a few years back I realized just how much I loved fall because I no longer had it.  We have 3 seasons: hot, really hot and less hot. 🙂  But one of my favorite things about Fall is the smell of pumpkin pie, bread, cookies, etc and so to bring a little bit of Fall into my life I bake treats like Baked Pumpkin Spice Donuts.

Black Widow Spider Pancakes

If you’ve been following along with us for any amount of time you know that we love making all sorts of fun holiday pancakes.  This year for Halloween we made Black Widow Spider Pancakes.   Black Widow Spider Pancakes In the past we have made Frankenstein pancakes and Jack-O-Lantern pancakes and they were a big hit with my kids.  So I tried to figure out what I could make that the boys would love and decided that Black Widow Spider pancakes would be about as creepy as it could get.  I am definitely NOT a fan of these critters when I find them out in the yard and every time I put up fake spider webs outside, I worry that we will attract more than just the fake plastic spiders that the webs come with. 😉 […]

Easy Mummy Treat – Fun Halloween Treat

Halloween is basically here and today we celebrate with our school class parties.  I made this Easy Mummy Halloween Treat for one of my boys’ classes and they were super simple! Easy Mummy Halloween Treat If you haven’t noticed, I kind of have a thing for creating fun food for my boys.  And Halloween is one of the best celebrations for it because there are so many fun options to make.  I made Eyeball Donuts for my oldest son’s birthday and last year we celebrated Halloween with Mummy Pizza and Frankenstein Pancakes.   So when I was asked to bring a treat for my son’s class party, I knew just what to do and this Easy Mummy Treat was created.

Eyeball Cake- Easy Halloween Cake

My oldest son is an October baby and now that he is getting older he likes to have a Halloween cake for his birthday.  We have made a Spider Cake and Cupcakes, Haunted House Cake and now this spooky, but easy, Eyeball Cake.

Balloon Ghosts: Easy Halloween Decorations

We love easy Halloween decorations  that we can make ourselves and most years my boys get busy making fun things out of the craft supplies we have around the house as soon as September hits.  This year, one of the big boys was home sick for the day so we decided to make our favorite Balloon Ghosts because they were dying to have some decorations in the house.  We have shared these before but not the instructions to make them so I thought it was time to add those. Balloon Ghosts : Easy Halloween Decorations I love these ghosts because they can be made in less than 5 minutes.  Now that is the perfect type of Halloween decoration!  You only need 5 supplies to be able to make dozens of these spooky Balloon Ghosts, and most of those supplies can be found around the house or left over from previous birthday parties.

Build Your Own Jack-O-Lantern Pancakes

Jack-o-Lantern Pancakes Ok, I admit, I can’t stop making fun breakfast foods for my kids during the holidays.  It’s like some sort of addiction.  Do they have a group called Pancake Makers Anonymous?  Because if so, I may need to join.  Last week I shared Frankenstein pancakes and today I’m sharing our Build your own Jack-o-Lantern pancakes.  […]

Easy Halloween Pumpkin Tutorial

Yesterday I posted about some of the Halloween decorations I have made with my boys and I promised a tutorial of the pumpkins.  They are super cute and SO easy.  I’ve had people asking if we had to stuff them or how they could be easy. All you need is: Rolls of toilet paper and paper towell Halloween fabric Paper bags Green “fuzzy sticks” or pipe cleaner (Whatever they are called in your neck of the woods.) […]

Halloween: Spooky, Funny or Just Plain Scary?

With Halloween only 2 weeks away we’ve been getting out all of our decorations and trying to plan costumes.  Costume planning is definitely getting harder as my boys get older.  The older (and especially the oldest) boys seem to be drawn to any costume with blood and guts hanging out and they KNOW that mama’s not buying that.  But, still they try to persuade the best they can.  Sorry guys. Not going to happen! I haven’t always decorated a lot for Halloween and I tend to use more Fall-like decor, but a couple of years ago my boys had had enough of being boring and we went in search of some fun decorations or crafts (minus anything gory) to put up in the house.  The boys helped me make all sorts of spooky-cool decorations. We made bats… […]
