This Halloween we wanted to cook up some super fun and adorable treats! We asked New York based, homemade dessert extraordinaire Dear Liza’s, to share some of her favorite, easy-to-make, Halloween desserts!
I know making cupcakes from scratch can be a little time consuming so for these fun Halloween cupcakes I would suggest a box mix. My favorite is Betty Crocker “Yellow Cake Mix” (not the one using butter).
1 stick of butter (softened at room temperature)
12 oz./1.5 cups solid vegetable shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups confectioners sugar (sifted)
1-2 tablespoons milk
Pinch of salt
The perfect soup with a hearty filling taste and lots of goodness for the soul!1lb extra lean ground turkey meat 1 medium yellow onion, diced 1 cup diced celery 1 cup diced carrots 1 cup any other veggies (green beans, corn, etc) 1 bay leaf 1 tsp. basil salt pepper 2 cans, 14 oz diced tomatoes 3 cups of water Brown the turkey meat and drain. Add the chopped onion until tender (about 4-5 minutes). Add tomatoes, water, veggies and spices. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Serve with toasted french bread slices fresh from the bakery.
So we’ve been hearing about these Cronuts for a while now, but like most people we were under the impression that this was a treat only available to east coasters residing in New York City. Luckily, one of our staffers found a local donut shop called DK Donuts in Santa Monica that makes their own version of the Cronut, called O-Nuts. These delicious half melty croissant-half donuts are not to be missed!
We’re pretty obsessed with these gummy bears from our local Sprouts Farmers Market! They’re so vibrant and come in 12 colors & flavors. Delish!
