Rudolph Peanut Blossoms    
I’m not sure if everyone else’s mom called this type of cookie a “peanut blossom,” but mine did, and that’s what I’m going with.  Dress them up for Christmas a la this idea from Recipes.com!

I was undecided about whether this should go under "recipes" or "crafts"!  Whatever it is, it is adorable and a perfect idea for a Thanksgiving bring-along dish!

RIP Graveyard Halloween Cupcakes

This is a true chocolate-lover's dessert: rich, thick puddings topped with chocolate wafer "dirt" and cookie "gravestones." Best of all, you can make the puddings with very little fuss using a microwave and a blender. I personally LOVE the traditional dirt cups with worms, so this Halloween twist is right up my alley!

Jack-o-Lantern Tarts
Store-bought PopTarts don’t hold a Jack-o-Lantern’s candle to these homemade ones! Older kids can carve their own designs with a paring knife, while little ones can trace a design with a toothpick for an adult to carve.
