Mom Hack: Make Frozen Cookie Dough from Your Halloween Candy!

Mom Hack: Make Frozen Cookie Dough from Your Halloween Candy!

Now that Halloween has passed, you’re probably ready to get your kids’ candy out of the house. There are lots of good places to donate, from shelters to toy stores (think The Toy Post for a $5 gift card!) to dentists’ offices to the military, but we stumbled upon this smart idea from The Baker Mama and wanted to share it. This freezable dough uses up your Halloween candy, and you’re ready for any last minute bake sale request from school – win-win!

Squash Toast – Cold Weather YUMMMMMMMINESS!

Squash Toast – Cold Weather YUMMMMMMMINESS!

As the colder weather sets in, we wanted to share this Butternut Squash Toast from local mom and nutritionist, Robin Barrie! (We know that avocado gets the most glory on a regular basis.) Toast is a blank canvas that can be topped with a variety of items.  Plus, it’s a warm alternative to a cold sandwich or salad this time of year.  Butternut squash is in season and delish right now. It is a great source of carotenoids, which benefit healthy eyes and smooth skin….yummmmm!

Pumpkin Bread Recipe!

Pumpkin Bread Recipe!

We’re calling it now—pumpkin bread is the new banana bread. And besides the fact that it is a delicious fall treat, the beta-carotene in pumpkin (converted to Vitamin A in the body) is a true powerhouse vitamin. It boosts the immune system, promotes eye health and helps prevents sun damage! We love the recipe below from The Local Moms Network contributor Maria Provenzano because it uses ingredients you probably already have and is simple, making it a great activity to do with kids.

Weeknight Mexican Tacos – YUM!

Weeknight Mexican Tacos – YUM!

We may be missing our favorite margs at our favorite Mexican spot, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate our favorite foodie holiday at home! We’ve rounded up some yummy taco, enchilada, veggie sides, guac, dessert—and yes, margarita—recipes from around the web. And most of them use ingredients that are hopefully already in your fridge and pantry. Enjoy and don’t forget to buy gift certificates to your favorite restaurants (Mexican or not!) to support your local businesses during this time!
