Preparing for Halloween with some Easy and Delicious Recipes!

Thursday is Halloween!!!  My favorite holiday next to Christmas!  We have been preparing for a gathering at our home to celebrate and what fun it has been.  My handsome husband and our good friend built the most perfect fire pit and we are putting it to good use Thursday evening.

I have been scowering Pinterest, (crack for the eyes) to find an apple cider punch, pumpkin cake, and appetizer recipes.  After my eyes started to strain and felt like they were going to bug out of my head I came upon what I think are some easy, and look to be delicious recipes. I love making things look pretty and even more so tasty, but too many steps at this point in my life do not fit in like they use to.  So here are some of what I found.  Wish me luck and hope they turn out well, stay tuned.....!

1 cup orange juice
