It May Not Be Pinterest Worthy, But...

Pinterest food can be overrated, don't you think? When I look at some of those picture perfect photos of Halloween cupcakes decorated with upside down ice cream cones piped with icing to look like witch hats, I feel super inadequate. But then I think about it, and realize that stale ice cream cone would be ripped off and thrown aside and along with it all the icing. At least at my house.  : )

So if you are looking for a non-Pinterest worthy Halloween treat, look no further. Here are a few of our favorites. Nothing fancy, but yummy and festive just the same!

Perhaps our favorite Halloween meal...Candy Corn Pizza!
Easy and fun!

Peyton makes this yummy Spiderweb Munch every single year.

Stuffed Pepper Soup and Mummy Dogs are a favorite as well...

 Simple chocolate cupcakes with orange icing and Halloween sprinkles are always a good idea...

And breakfast can be fun too! Some food coloring in the batter with mini chocolate chips on top make waffles spooky but yummy too!

The fun doesn't have to end when Halloween does!
Use that extra Halloween candy to make some Candy Bar Brownies!

Have I ever told you how much I love Halloween?!?!
Thanks for visiting, my friends.
Have a cozy day!


  1. Every year I adore that spiderweb munch and this may just be the year I get it together enough to make it! We like pumpkin pancakes with chocolate chip faces which I guess would actually make them jack-o-lantern pancakes!

  2. Looks good enough for pinterest to me!! Have you seen the orange spider doughnuts from Dunkin doughnuts? They are cute and should be easy to make.

  3. You, my friend, are Pinterest worthy, smiles. Peyton has a talent, Billie Jo, smiles.

  4. Looks Pinterest worthy to me! I just bought Pillsbury crescent rolls to make John mummy dogs this week! Thank you for all your ideas!! I love the candy corn pizza! Easy and quick (but still cute and festive) is my idea of perfect! Happy Wednesday! xx

  5. -chuckle- I don't "do" Pinterest.

    I'm very sure, you and Peyton can conjure up just as amazing Halloween "goodies," as those fancy STAGED pictures on Pineterest. Just look at what you have shown!!!

    Happy Haunting!

  6. I can see all those treats on Pinterest! They look as any on there! I bet they are just as yummy too.

  7. Forget PINTEREST....I am hanging here on your page drooling! Looks great.

  8. You are certainly Pinterest worthy you and Peyton make an amazing team together. Have a wonderful celebration and enjoy Halloween together.

  9. Oh Billie Jo, that is very Pinterest worthy!!! Did I mention I want to come to your house!!! LOL Hugs friend. Juli

  10. I love the idea of candy corn pizza!! I'll be making this next Friday for sure :) I'm right there with you on the elaborate desserts, I always pin them thinking that would be so cute but let's be real, I don't have the time to put all my energy into the perfect cake or cupcakes when all we care about is eating the darn thing and it tasting good!!

  11. I used to make mummy pizzas out of English muffins for my kids on Halloween right before they would go trick-or-treating! Simple and cute is waaaaaayyyy better than elaborate and overdone, in my humble opinion!

  12. Love!! Recipes please for that munch. And how you do pizza!!

  14. Yes, I laugh at the food on pintrest... and the perfectly decorated house... such a joke! You food is cute and spooky and fun and I bet really really good!

  15. Billie Jo! Oh YUM! It's hard sticking to my diet looking at your post. I've made the mummy dogs in the past and they were a hit!

  16. Hi Billie Jo!

    I agree, Pintrest is way over-rated!! I love your ideas, and they are ALL too good for Pintrest! I have tried a few things from Pintrest, and to tell you the truth, we really didn't like very many of them...:0/ Your candy corn pizza looks delightful...all of it looks delightful, who am I kidding!! Today I bought some, Pumkin Spice Gingersnaps and thought I was really going all out!

    What a yummy post!!

    Hugs and Love,

  17. I would say your Halloween foods are perfect! When our kids were home we celebrated much like do, your Halloween posts bring back wonderful memories.

  18. So many adorable things for Halloween! Looks so yummy :-) We still have very warm temperatures here in the south so it doesn't really feel like fall yet. I'm not sure what kind of caterpillar that was in my last post, but I've heard some of them are poisonous so we observe but don't touch lol. :-) Thank you also for the kind words and support in regards to my mom. It has been very hard and I need all the prayers I can get. Have a great weekend!


  19. Great Halloween food ideas. I love Halloween as well and can't wait to make our spooky dinner. We don't get much trick or treaters due to our off the beaten path dark col de sac but some of my young friends will take pity on me and bring their kids by haha.
    Have a great weekend Billie Jo

  20. These could totally be displayed on Pinterest, girl! It looks so festive and yummy!

  21. I'm hungry, now. ;) I love the idea of candy bar brownies. Mmmmm...


Thanks so much for saying hello!
