These Butterbeer Brown Butter Blondies with Toasted Pecans basically taste like amped up butter pecan blondies. Their flavor is spot-on and like any good blondie should be, they’re gooey-centered and completely indulgent. What could be a more perfect fall snack for watching Harry Potter?

I always wonder what gets a person excited.

And I don’t mean regular excited, I mean the kind of excitement that’s palpable. The kind of excited that makes someone’s eyes light up with passion and their voice resonate with happiness.

Butterbeer Popcorn {Inspired by Harry Potter} 

Butterbeer Popcorn

I wish all year could be autumn. I’d be bundled up in a cozy scarf drinking apple cider and eating roasted winter squash every day. And that’s not even to mention how much I love car rides in the country to take in the glorious fall foliage, and pumpkin spice lattes, which, incidentally, always seem to taste best in fall....

Healthy Candy Apple Wedges {Paleo}

DSC_3862(small)

How many of you will admit to sneaking some of your kid’s Halloween candy when no one is looking? I don’t have kids (yet!), but yeah, I’d be guilty as charged. It’s the stuff we won’t buy for ourselves, but if it’s just hanging around, it’s fair game. If you didn’t buy it for yourself, the calories don’t count, right? ;) I like to have healthier treats that will still satisfy a sweet tooth at the ready....

Superfood Spiced Autumn Truffles

Look…they look like fudge inside! If you’re trying to avoid regular (read: sugar-coma-inducing) candy, this recipe will be your saving grace on Halloween night. Halloween at my mom’s house is like a free-for-all when it comes to sugar. She always has an insanely huge amount of candy on hand for giving away to kiddos trick-or-treating. She fills a stockpot (which is about four times as big as my normal big soup pot!) to the point of overflowing, and then it’s a frenzied dash for stuffing your bag (and your face) with candy. It is so hard to avoid that evil pot of temptation....

Mashed Potatoes with Cabbage and Onion {Colcannon}

Halloween isn’t my favorite holiday. I kind-of see it as a non-holiday holiday that must be endured before the real holiday season can be ushered in (and for this I apologize to my darling Halloween-loving readers!). But…I will admit there are some fun things about it. Costumes, for example. And jack-o-lanterns. Scary movie marathons. And if you’re still young enough to do so, trick-or-treating is always a blast (who would refuse free candy, right?). These are the traditions that I grew up associating with Halloween....
