Spooky Spreads for Your Halloween Party

Kathy : October 29, 2014 09:00 : Kathy Hester

The best way to have a party and cook for your crowd this Halloween is to have plenty of finger foods, dip and spread.

Bonus is they are actually healthy, so your kids will have something in them besides a ton of candy!

This week I have 3 extremely easy dips that you make with just 1 can of white beans.

Add chips, veggies and crackers and you can make sure your party guests have plenty on their stomach!

Harry Potter Pumpkin Juice for Halloween

Kathy : October 22, 2014 09:00 : Kathy Hester

I love Harry Potter and we’re doing a themed Halloween party this year. We went to the new Diagon Alley part of Universal Studios earlier this year and we had so much fun that we’re going back in December!

In the books, and at the park, pumpkin juice is vegan. Unfortunately, Butterbeer is not vegan in the park, so I drank extra pumpkin juice while we were there.

Pumpkin juice is not just a pumpkin that went through a juicer. It has pumpkin pie spices, pumpkin puree, vanilla and is thick with an apricot puree. The very best part? There’s no refined sugar – it’s sweetened with apple juice!

Slow Cooker Autumn Harvest Veggie Soup

Kathy : October 15, 2014 09:00 : Kathy Hester

I use my slow cooker all year long. Even if you haven’t gotten on the summer crockpot train chances are that you’ve pulled yours out of its resting place.

The cooler weather and the changing leaves leads the way for soup and bread dinners at my house. It’s a signal to stock up on winter squash and pumpkin. Then Brussels sprouts start appearing at Trader Joe’s or your farmers market.

Autumn Harvest Veggie Soup from Vegan Slow Cooking for Two by Kathy Hester

Brussels sprouts fascinate me with their broomstick-sized stems. My picky eater’s favorite way to eat them is shredded and sautéed with pecans, maple syrup and a dash of liquid smoke.

She was tempted with this soup too. The winter squash stand in for the sweetness of the maple syrup and the apple cider vinegar gives this soup the depth it needs. I think you’ll enjoy this on a chilly night while you’re decorating your house for Halloween.
