Halloween Mummy Jalapeno Poppers


Cute foods are the best foods, right?! I think so, especially when it comes to appetizers. I mean if something is already supposed to be small then can’t it be cute right along with small. The holidays are the perfect time for cute appetizers, and I take full advantage of this glorious time of year. I get plenty of eye rolls from my husband. He just wants to eat, ya know. So this year I made something cute out of a food he likes – Halloween Jalapeno Poppers. I still got the eye rolls, but he ate all of them so I win.

As usual, there’s always a way to make these your own. I just can’t make a recipe that can’t be changed up to others personal preferences. I’m sure it’s because I’m could be what’s called a picky eater. I like options. With the Halloween Jalapeno Poppers it’s super easy to change up the eyes to any flavor you’d like. Siracha, ketchup, chocolate chips, candy eyes, olives, more peppers. Whatever you’d like! Whatever your guests like! Make some with each so you have options! Options are wonderful.

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal - My Cooking Spot

I don’t care what anyone says. A season of pumpkin-flavored food is fine with me. I don’t believe in going overboard, no, but a little here and there is totally fine! I say we stop hating because it’s delicious. Lattés, toffee, oatmeal…

Yes, oatmeal! Every Halloween night should begin with the perfect breakfast jumpstart. This Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal is just that. I am a recent oatmeal convert, but this is my new favorite thing to eat in the morning.

Avocado Chocolate Chip Pudding {Vegan}


Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Avocado Chocolate Chip Pudding

I am in LOVE with this pudding!

Chocolate pudding has always been one of my go-to comfort foods. It’s rich and creamy and a perfect ending to lovely dinner.

It’s also great as a mid-day snack for my little one. But these days, we are all gluten-free & cow dairy-free so pudding has been removed from our home….UNTIL NOW!

Carrot Cake Mix Cookies - My Cooking Spot-3

Hey y’all! Stephanie from Sustaining the Powers here again. I have a quick holiday treat go-to recipe to share with you today – Carrot Cake Mix Cookies. I don’t know about you, but in my family, Carrot Cake is eaten year round, not just at Easter. We especially love it around Halloween and Thanksgiving because of its mix of fall spices and its fun streaks of orange color from the carrots. Plus it’s a vegetable, so that makes these more “healthy” right? Breakfast cookies maybe?
