Happy Hallowe’en! We have a spooktacular Favourite Foodies selection for you today. There are gory goodies, creepy crawlies, and daring dishes galore – plenty of inspiration if you are still looking for ideas a spooky supper or party. And just in case Halloween isn’t your thing, we’ve thrown in a few delicious non-spooky recipes that we’ve spotted this week too.
So, pop on your witches hat, sit back on your broom and enjoy our Ten at Ten this week…
First up we have some spooky spider cakes from What Kate Baked – the children are desperate to make some this morning! She also has a quiz for you to take, just to check how excited you are about all things Halloween.
If spiders aren’t your thing, then maybe you’d prefer some bugs? This supper dish of witches hair with bugs from Vanilla Clouds and Lemon Drops is the perfect post trick or treating dish for all the troops.
If you’re looking for something a little different to hand out to the trick or treaters this year, then these pumpkin pie cookies from Mike’s Baking could be just the thing. Much better than sickly sweets, I think!
Next up we have a work of art from The Crazy Kitchen in the form of a Spooky Halloween Gingerbread Church. This in an impressive structure and one that the kids would love. If you’re a dab hand with gingerbread construction then why not join in with Helen’s linky?
Are you a whiz when it comes to pumpkin carving? I’m definitely not! But I’m not bad at cake decorating, so I am very tempted to have a go at this fabulous pumpkin cake from Blue Kitchen Bakes. It would make a great centrepiece for a Halloween party table.
Another yummy treat is this creepy crawlies chocolate cheesecake from beesteas. Those little oreo spiders are just brilliant – they could be used to decorate all sorts of goodies!
Our last lot of Halloween treats comes from Cake, Crumbs and Cooking. These ginger pumpkin chocolate cupcakes sound delicious and the spider cupcake cases are wonderful!
And now for the non-spooky posts. Firstly, there is a lovely creamy chestnut and parsnip soup from Andy’s Kitchen. I’ve not used chestnuts much before as I’ve been told they’re bland, but this soup sounds perfect for a chilly Autumn day so I think I shall give it a go.
Next up, we have a French lemon and thyme roast chicken from Jonny’s Kitchen. A classic winning combination of flavours and a great way to jazz up a plain roast chicken. Definitely one to try.
Last but not least this week, we have a slow cooker recipe – lamb in red wine from Kitchen Delights. We love simple but delicious dishes and I bet it smells amazing as it cooks away during the day.
That all for this week. If you’d like to put together a Ten at Ten featuring your favourite blog posts then do drop me a line. See you next week!
