Some of my fondest childhood memories revolve around baking with my mom. Birthdays, holidays, scout bake sales, my mom always baked and I was there in my “Mom’s Little Helper” apron ready to get my hands dirty. I can’t say for sure, but I believe in the beginning I helped because that meant I got first dibs on the brownie covered beaters (I had to get there before my brothers). But I then realized there is more to helping than making a mess and eating raw batter. Some of my mom’s early lessons included “do not turn the mixer on high in a bowl of flour” or “don’t crack eggs directly into the bowl or we will be fishing out eggshell for the next 20 minutes.” At this point it wasn’t really about the baking, but about making memories (and a mess) with my mom.

It’s time again for the annual Halloween parties! We all have them – at school with the kids, theme-parties with friends, and Trick-or-Treat parties with parents waiting for the little ghosts and goblins to show up at the front door. As always, I wanted to take something that was not only delicious, but also looked great. However, busy schedules don’t always allow for long cooking and baking projects.
