Pulling Into The Station - Food Stop

Welcome to the first post on blogs I love. This weeks addition is all about some food blogs I love visiting.

This first one is all about cupcakes. For the last year or so I have been really crazy about cupcakes. This site features cupcakes from bakers all over the country. You can't help but smile when you see all the cupcake goodness. Please go to Cupcakes Take the Cake.

This next one is all about the mistakes and hilarity that happens when bakeries try to design cakes. Please go to Cake Wrecks.

I love this one. It's all about creative desserts, but mostly cake pops. Bakerella has been on a book signing tour, and she was even in Dallas. I just wish I could have gone. Please go to Bakerella.

That is all for now. Hope you enjoy viewing some new blogs.

Halloween Treats

Happy Halloween!

Hope you all had a fun and spooky time yesterday. I wanted to share some of the treats I made for our festivities yesterday.

First off I made some mummy dogs.

Deets~ All you do for these, is take crescent rolls and cut them into strips. Then, wrap this around your hot dogs and cook according to directions on crescent can.

Next up are bones.

Deets~ For these I took some store breadsticks rolled them out and twisted knots in the end. I then brushed some butter on them, and sprinkled parmesan cheese on them before baking. I baked them according to the directions on the breadsticks can.

Next up are my desserts.

I first made monster fingers.

Deets~ I melted candy melts and almond bark and dipped nutter butters in them. While, they were still soft I stuck candy in one end for a nail.

I then made eyeballs.

Deets~ For these, I melted almond bark and dipped vanilla wafers in it. While they were still wet, I stuck a chocolate chip in the center. I let them harden then I put some green candy melts in a ziplock bag and snipped the end off. I put the green around the chocolate chip to make it look like an eery eye. You could go one step further and paint on red streaks with food coloring to make the eyes look blood shot, but I didn't have time to do that.

I got all of these fun recipes from the Taste of Home website. There are many other great things to try on there as well.
