“Eyeballs and Worms” (Halloween Spaghetti and Meatballs)

What better thing to fill up on than a big plate of worms and eyeballs carbs before a night of running around and stuffing your face with candy?! Well, I have just the thing that your kids (and even the grown ups) will love!

Matcha Mint Chip Ice Cream (No-Churn)

I know some of you will question why I’m doing an ice cream recipe in October. Well here’s why– here in Arizona the only things falling from trees, are birds from heat strokes, not pretty orange leaves; and unlike the rest of the country, us Arizonians get to look foreword to 100 degree weather and 2rd degree burns from our seat belt buckles during fall. (though not quite as bad as the 3rd degree burns we get during summer! Or the 1st degree burns just from walking from your car to the store entrance. honestly, no joke.)

Habanero Butter Shrimp Tacos

I’m going to let you in on a little secret; well, it’s really not much of a secret, because anyone who has had the GREAT pleasure of me cooking for them, knows I make THE BEST tacos. I make tacos at least once a week in my house, and now I’ve added making chicken wings once a week too, now that I tackled how to make perfectly crispy wings in your oven. Bye bye bikini body, hello sweatshirts and baggy pants. Not only are tacos and wings my FAVORITE things in the world, but both this recipe and my Crispy Baked Wings recipe contain a seriously spicy kick from the addition of a few spices from Sonoran Spice Company. You can buy their products HERE!

Black Bean Hummus with Roasted Corn Salsa

Last year it was kale, the year before that it was quinoa, this year it was hummus. Every year, a new health food makes it way to the spotlight and people can’t jump on the bandwagon fast enough. It’s in every grocery store, every menu, and everyone is eating it; but let’s be honest, it can get real boring real fast. Even with the addition of roasted peppers, garlic, and chipotles, It still has the same texture and base flavors. That’s why I like experimenting with different types of beans, spices, and flavor combinations!

Crispy Baked Chicken Wings

I like LOVE chicken wings! So much so, that when I’m consuming them, I closely resemble a rabid, wild animal, that hasn’t eaten in days weeks; which is why I prefer eating them in the comfort of my own home where I can borrow my son’s bib and my cats don’t judge me, because all lady-like etiquette goes out the door (not that I really had much to begin with).

The BEST Red Velvet Cake

Today marks a very special day, which is why I made a cake! Really I’m celebrating 3 things today; my mom’s belated birthday, the first day of October (my favorite month EVER), and it’s been exactly one month since I started this blog (which is seriously the biggest migraine, I mean, accomplishment of them all! Then again, I wouldn’t exactly be here if my mom was never born, so I guess her birthday trumps all…)
