I’m not a sports fan (do you really think I have time for that? haha) but I do enjoy the food. My husband is a huge Giants fan so we do catch a few games on his days off. We usually head to my Aunts where we watch it on her giant (ha! it’s a pun) TV and I sit at the kitchen table munching on snacks and reading cookbooks. The snacks are always plentiful, we always make venison chili for the main dish but we fill ourselves up with half a dozen dips and chip/cracker combos. [Read more…]

Halloween Witch Hat Cookies

I’m off my game (again!) I’m always ready for Halloween in August and then I blink and it’s October 20th. My kid doesn’t even have a costume! For the record she’s going to be a bat and the fabric is somewhere on my kitchen table. I was feeling like a Halloween failure so I put on Hocus Pocus and got to baking. You’ve probably made a version of these cookies, I’ve seen them called peanut butter blossoms but growing up we called them the kiss cookies.

If I told you I didn’t have Halloween decorations in mind when I designed and built the chicken run I’d be lying. It was barely done before I strung it up with with twinkle lights. I considered putting my giant spider webs down there but considering how often the geese go barreling though where they are in front I didn’t think they’d last long that close to the barn (the geese are no longer cute and tiny). I needed a new idea and it just so happens that a few years ago I saw a few pictures of ring-around-the-rosy style ghosts and fell in love. I wanted to do something like that but I wasn’t sure where or how. After we finished the run the where became pretty apparent but the how was still eluding me.
