Fall is in the air and so is the smell of baked goods, homemade soups, hearty chili’s, savory Crock-Pot dishes, casseroles and everything and anything that pumpkin can find its way into.
It’s the perfect time of year for foods that warm and comfort us. Best way to describe it : FOOD FOR THE SOUL
I’ll be sharing some of my favorite fall foods including some other awesome Autumn recipes from other bloggers who have shared their Fall favorites.
That being said I had recently been craving some Pumpkin Zucchini Bread so I decided to make a loaf. I got the Pumpkin and zucchini last weekend when I went to the Pumpkin Patch which is also a farm. They had lots of fresh goodies for a little of nothing. I love getting produce for a bargain. The remaining ingredients needed, I already had and didn’t have to purchase.

wow… i need all of these … I NEED TO RE-ENACT every kill… remember the brutal disposal of NICK .. hahaha ( aah memories ) ….. to be a kid again ….
yes… indulge yourself THIS HALLOWEEN.. ALL BLACK EVERYTHING … INCLUDING .. WINGS …. are you into.. if so… here ya go …
Hot sauce? Check. Bloody Mary mix? Check. The creepiest, most vile-looking chicken wings you’ve ever seen? You better believe it. If there’s ever a time to eat something that looks like it flew straight out of hell, it’s Halloween. Of course, this recipe from Smoky Ribs BBQ also packs enough flavor to be a part of your grill game year-round.
24 ounces Louisiana hot sauce
1 tablespoon black food dye
18-24 fresh whole chicken wings
1½ cups Bloody Mary mix
Splash hot sauce, to taste
3-4 splashes Worcestershire sauce
½ lime, juiced
Red food dye
Fresh-cracked black pepper, to taste
Combine 24 ounces of hot sauce with 1 tablespoon of black food dye, and mix well.
Place the chicken wings into a 1-gallon Ziploc bag and cover them with black hot sauce. Seal, and toss the chicken in the marinade until thoroughly covered. Place the bag in the refrigerator and flip it every 30 minutes for 3 hours.
While the chicken is marinating, pour the Bloody Mary mix into a pot. Bring it to a simmer, and then add several dashes of hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lime juice, and 1 tablespoon of red food dye. Bring the mixture to a simmer again, and add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch slurry to thicken.
Remove the wings from the Ziploc bag. Place them in a shallow dish to catch the drippings, and inject the Bloody Mary mixture into the drumettes and the flats of each wing. Once all wings are fully injected, place them on a grill or smoker over indirect heat. Season with celery salt and pepper, and cook until they reach an internal temperature of 170°F.
Remove the wings from the grill. Garnish with fresh parsley, and serve with celery sticks and the dressing of your choice. (Note: Because of the vibrancy of the Bloody Mary injection, the wings will look and appear raw even when fully cooked, which is why it’s important to check them with an internal thermometer before taking them off the grill.)

Pumpkin Pie Waffles.. have em for breakfast or a late night MUNCHIE TREAT lol.
2 Tbsp. melted butter, plus extra for griddle
1/2 Cup pumpkin puree
1/4 Cup packed brown sugar
1 Tsp. pumpkin pie spice (or combine ground cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and clove to make your own)
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup + 3 Tbsp. whole wheat flour
1/2 Tbsp. baking powder
1/4 Tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 Tsp. vanilla extract
1. Preheat waffle iron. If you want to keep your waffles warm until serving time, preheat your oven to 150 F. Melt the butter in a small sauce pan or bowl in the microwave and set aside.
2. In a bowl combine the pumpkin puree with the sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Mix well.
3. Beat in the egg. Add the milk, yogurt and vanilla and stir with a spatula to combine. It is OK if the mixture is lumpy.
4. Combine the flour with the baking powder and baking soda. I do this right in the measuring cup and give it a little stir. Then add the dry ingredients into the liquid and stir until combined. Fold in the melted butter.
5. I do recommend lightly greasing the plates of your waffle iron with some melted butter. I have never before done this with any other waffle recipe, but these ones are really sticky! Use a large spoon or ice cream scoop to spoon the batter onto your iron, and spread them with a spatula a bit to even them out. They are usually done when the iron stops steaming.
Optional Toppings: Whipped cream, toasted nuts, toasted pecans, pure maple syrup and cinnamon. Also goes lovely with a cup of Chai tea too.

THESE STILL ARE AWESOME!!!!!! MAKE THEM TODAY !!!!!
Here are some wonderful Munchies for the Holidaze!!!
Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler over medium-low heat or in the microwave for about 1 minute. Just make sure to stir it often to keep the chocolate from burning. For the best results, chill ghosts until you’re ready to serve them.
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chunks, melted
3 dozen pieces dried fruit (such as banana chips, prunes, apricots or pineapple slices)
2 tablespoons dried blueberries or currants
1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
Line two large sheet trays with parchment paper. Transfer chocolate to a small, deep bowl.
Working with one piece of fruit at a time, dip one end into the chocolate, leaving only the last quarter inch or so exposed; shake off excess chocolate and transfer dipped fruit to prepared sheet tray. Drizzle a bit of extra chocolate around the bottom left and right sides to form the shape of a ghost, then use the blueberries, currants or sunflower seeds to make eyes. Repeat process with remaining fruit and chocolate then chill until completely set, about 1 hour.

REPOST FROM HALLOWEEN 2011 .. THESE WERE JUST TOO GOOD TO NOT REPOST FOR YOUR HALLOWEEN FUN …. thank us later !!!
The Corpse Reviver Shot… OOOOHHHHH !!!
How about a creepy cocktail to serve the adults at your Wicked/Haunted Halloween Party, the “Corpse Reviver Shot” kills it every time! The Corpse Reviver family of cocktails were quite popular around the turn of the century, the 20th century that is– as a “hair of the dog” reviver, to pick you up and refresh you after a heavy night out. Times have certainly changed and now Corpse Revivers are back and waking up the dead. LOL.
As part of an old family of cocktails “The Reviver” began to die out after prohibition when complex “up” drinks went out of fashion, and now the category is all but dead. I actually stumbled across three different drink recipes for the Corpse Reviver Shot 1 & 2. Pick Your Poison and ENJOY!
Corpse Reviver Shot 1
1 ounce Brandy
1 ounce Orange Liqueur
1 ounce Lemon Juice
1 dash Grenadine
Add all ingredients to a mixing glass or shaker. Shake with ice, strain, and load plastic, food-grade syringes. To serve, keep syringes on ice. Scale as needed to serve 1 or 100.
Of course if you are more afraid of syringes than Dr. Conrad Murray .. try this simple option:
Another recipe for Corpse Reviver #1 sans syringe and over ice.
Corpse Reviver (No. 1)
2 shots Cognac
1 shot apple brandy or Calvados
1 shot sweet vermouth
Stir well with ice and strain in to a cocktail glass.

This is bittersweet.. I have been waiting for this but I AM ALSO STILL HEARTBROKEN.. oh Amy, why just.(sigh) ……….. 😦
Soul bearing chanteuse , Amy Winehouse transitioned from this life in 2011; her demons finally got the best of her after a both public and private battle with life, shit, dope and more shit. We loved her for her scars as well as her gifts. Amy left us with gems beyond measure, she released an immense catalog of work in her mere 27 years. Winehouse left a legacy and made a lane of her own, she created her own IMPRINT; her work will soar with the legends after we are long gone. This Asif Kapadia directed, Cannes approved, documentary “Amy” is a compilation of over 100 interviews. The cohesive story is crafted by piles of video footage, home movie clips and anecdotes and testimonials from some of Amy’s collaborators, Yasiin Bey, Mark Ronson, Pete Doherty , friends and family members This project was initially started as a conceptual marriage between Krishwerkz Entertainment, the label (UNIVERSAL U.K.) and the Winehouse family but where Mitch (Amy’s dad) wanted to keep it cleaned up and genteel, Kaskadia and Co. wanted to add the edgier nuances. Mitch Winehouse has since announced that his family has nothing to do with the film anymore ” It is both misleading and filled with basic untruths”. Joe Cascarelli of the NY Times offers an in depth expose of the film here …
It is unclear to me if they want to present the “ugly” to put the butts in the seats or are they trying to connect the audience authentically with her actual struggle . It will be scary to meet the demon that actually WON Amy’s fight but like every horror film we just HAVE TO SEE IT.. Amy never did conquer that unholy war she was so entrenched in. The battles to be free, relationship woes, the clichéd “drug and alcohol” battle , the public scrutiny and the struggle to keep it original in an industry full of factory cut outs. The culmination resulted in , well.. THE END RESULT . Amy may be a cautionary tale of the wicked recording industry and it’s EXPECTED pits and foes but I believe or at least want to believe that it will also showcase and highlight Amy’s true production , writing and creating skills. Amy had an awesome sense of humor and a wicked modska/ rude girl/ vintage R&B/ jazz/ torch type steez. We want to see her in all her Fred Perry glory. We want to see her lamenting over Dinah Washington and Sarah Vaughn. I want to see her joking with Mos Defand Nas. I want to see what was beneath the beehive (literally and figuratively) , according to Kasadia this is the directive . He wants to break down the bullshit and the caricature and let you into the raw and actual .. Amy hits theaters nationally July 3, this Friday .
In other Amy news .. It is reported that the potential demo renderings for her much anticipated unfinished third LP were destroyed. . Intentionally .. check out that story after the beat
WE love you Debbie… you are perfection .. let’s celebrate the life of the Blondie frontman, B-girl, (YESS B-GIRL and we can debate this all day nuugga..) and all around rock goddess today … Here’s to you Ms. Harry Your awesomeness has not been wasted on us. Nobody has filled her shoes yet and please don’t come over here talmbout Gwen Stefani… Gwen is cool but this here IS DEBBIE DAMNIT. She has left her footprint firmly planted in the foundations of everything from art to music. We will not even try to break down how many trends she has mothered. Hell Deborah was A PLAYBOY BUNNY goshdarnit. I appreciate the fact too that Debbie is simiply growing older, she is not running around here with DDD titties, a snatched grill overdoing it. Note to Madonna , although you are not quite 70 yet, BISH THIS IS HOW TO DO IT. She is a powerhouse of a woman then , now and forever. She taught me to “Rip her to Shreds” and also informed me that the “Tide is High” . so covet your seat in the celestial landscape woman. We are forever inspired… HAPPY FUCKING BIRTHDAY DEBORAH HARRY sidenote: Aren’t she and Chris Stein just the ultimate in relationship GOALS OMG..
hey Darth Vader and ANOTHER FAB 5 FREDDY CAMEO ALERT: THE TIDE IS HIGH YO!!!!
I am not going to disrespect you guys and give you the history of Blondie or Deborah .. if you need enlightenment.. take that ass to Wikipedia… ( some of the basic shit is probably true, ha) Clearly if you are on Bamboobanga YOU ARE KINDA well versed in this braud already .. Let us HOPE .. (side eye ) .. alright .. SMOKE WELL.. and listen to some of our favorite Blondie chunes on the next page …. yeah yeah RAPTURE is over there… I know that’s what ya want ..

It’s summertime , and clearly it’s too damn hot to be toiling over the stove or oven all day.. The perfect remedy for the girl on the go , or the homemaker who also happens to hold down a full time job.. coupled with a hungry family ; A CROCK POT.. ( hears angels sing) …. The Crock Pot has been the key for me , my mama , her mama , yo mama etc, they have all utilized this amazing piece of culinary PLUG IN wizardry for beans and greens while they sleep in. It makes Oxtails and Beef rib tips just slide off the bone. Nothing can compare to the free feeling of simply tossing some seasonings, veggies, and meat of choice .. ( or not) into that big ole pot , simmer it on low and carry on with the day ( or take your ass to sleep) . It works for Sunday dinners and those quick weekday dinners after work , when you are too tired to look at a pot and too HUNGRY to stand for 30 minutes cooking ANYTHING.. Cook while you work or twerk .. but just let it sim simmahh by itself for a few hours.. During the summer we will be hooking you guys up with all kinds of Crock Pot ideas. We cater to the comfortable stoner here . we need breaks and we also like food HA!! The wonderful people over at The CrockPot Gourmet have prepared a delicious Coconut Lime Crock Pot Chicken that is truly divine.. just pair it up with a quick salad and there you have it .. Dinner is served !!!
so.. here we have 3 fun-filled .. days of HORROR.. yes.. you will be on a SHIP traveling from Miami to the Bahamas… WITH ZOMBIES.. on the bright side .. Darryl and Beth will be there to protect you hahaahahah.. I think they should mix it with The Love Boat and have Captain Stubbing at the captains dinner zombied out .. or perhaps you might be able to get a Mojito from an Undead Isaac( anyways FOCUS..) … This Walking Dead themed cruise sets sail in January and is already filling up fast. The entire “Norwegian Pearl” will be chock full of zombies, games, functions, cosplay contests and cast members, (Sasha, Bob and Carl will also be there to name a few) . I personally am in fact a Walking Dead super fan but i don’t know if I could deal with constant zombies on a fucking OCEAN LINER.. just me, zombies , and the friggin OCEAN.. I don’t know .. The event is being called The Walker Stalker Cruise and this gig is GOIN UP .. i just think it will have to go up sans me though… Imagine leaving the boat club/bar/situation by yourself drunk as hell trying to get to the cabin, you gotta pee, you haven’t smoked any kush , and here come Davy Jones and some other gnawed up looking sumbitch .. On the other hand it’s a cruise .. so it’s probably gonna be fun.. I mean i would rather run from a half eaten ACTOR zombie than one of those blue tooth in the ear, silk royal blue twin set, Huarache sandal wearing muhfuckas on the Funk Fest Cruise or something . On some real stuff though , if you are brave and require this type of horror at sea to feel complete … check out The Walker Stalker Cruise website for questions and to purchase tickets, while they still have them…
