I don't have any kids of my own yet. Hopefully someday but I do babysit all the time. One of my favorite fall treats is carmel apples with homemade carmel. I cook most often with my friends two daughters an 11 years and a 7 year old. The older one stirs while the younger one & I put sticks in apples, roll out the wax paper, and put down the pre-crushed peanuts. I enlist the help of the girls' 13 years old brother to dip the apples and we all have a great time rolling them in peanuts. (Even the sometimes grouchy teenager. lol!!!)
I don't have kids of my own yet either, but with everyone else's kids I make Halloween cupcakes.Spider cupcakes-black frosting, pieces of black licorice sticking out as legs, candy eyesGraveyard cupcakes-brown frosting, wafer cookie set into the frosting, with RIP piped onto it so it looks like a headstone sticking out of the dirt
Great Ideas! Love the caramel apples & the cupcakes. Sounds like alot of fun! Thanks Andrea
I agree! The cupcakes sound like fun. Gotta figure out how to make black icing. :) Girls, I just love talking recipes and cooking. This makes my day! Happy Halloween ya'll!!

I love talking food & recipes as well & I have tons of food coloring too!I really enjoy hearing from you. Andrea
This has been really fun for me to find a place to talk recipes and ideas with other girls. I live in a very isolated area on a farm that's about an hour from anywhere. I actually live in a place called Possum Holler. lol! I usually only see folks on the weekends so it's wonderful to have a place like this to talk about recipes & such during the week. :)
