Pumpkin and Zucchini bread …

 

pumpkin-sliced-2Fall 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.

Hot DAMMIT .. BAT WINGS FOR THE FUNCTION ….

black-wings

 

 

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.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 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
  • Cornstarch slurry
  • Celery salt
  • Fresh-cracked black pepper, to taste

BAT WINGS

DIRECTIONS:

  • 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.)

Call Donkey… IT’S WAFFLES ON HALLOWEEN!!!!

How awesome is this …

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 egg
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.

White Chocolate Ghost!!!!!

It’s HALLOWEEN YAAAYYY…. !!!!!

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.

Ingredients

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

Method

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.

Enjoy!!!! TRICK OR TREAT!!!!!

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.
