October's Weekend Cookbook Challenge


I am very pleased to announce, thanks to Sara, that I am guest hosting October’s Weekend Cookbook Challenge! Hooray! And the theme is…Halloween.


Now, you might be thinking, hmmmm, Halloween…what can I make for that? Well, my answer is, pretty much anything — pumpkins, root vegetables, snacks for trick-or-treaters, dishes for Halloween parties, perhaps even a super-scary Sandra Lee recipe — ha! Really, anything that can be remotely tied into Halloween will work..I’m not picky.

Of course, since this is a cookbook challenge, you should try to get your recipe from a cookbook, but if you see an amazingly awesome Halloween recipe in a magazine that you really want to use for this, I’m not going to stand in your way. See? Not much pickiness.

To participate, please make a recipe and post about your dish and send your entry to mlbATjemangelavilleDOTcom by Sunday, October 21. I will plan on getting the recap up very soon after that. Thanks again to Sara for generously letting me host this month — I’m very excited. I hope everyone has fun with this challenge! Please feel free to email if you have any questions.
