While I was rearranging my living room to make space for my enormous Halloween recipe collection, I realized that I have over
60 75 Halloween recipe magazines. I admit it—I’m addicted. When I’m at the grocery store, I always look for the latest recipe collection. I can’t pass it up either. I buy them when I see them. Sometimes I buy one that I already have because I have more than I can manage.
I took this photo to show you just how many recipe books I’ve collected over the past few years. Since the taking of this photo two weeks ago, I picked up at least six more magazines. I’m too embarrassed to tell you how many of these recipe collections I have on my Kindle Fire (okay, a hint—at least 12). Check out the Betty Crocker Halloween Cookbook now on amazon.com!
I so love looking through these collections. Every year I pick out about 20 recipes that I plan on making—some just for my grandkids and some for my Halloween party—yet, I make none of them. What a waste.
I decided this year that I would put my large Halloween recipe collection to work. I’m going to make one recipe a day for 31 days. It’s sort of like the 31 days of Halloween on Syfy or one of the other cable channels. Instead of one horror movie a day, I’ll make one Halloween recipe a day. Most of the dishes I plan to make will come from my vast Halloween recipe collection, but some of them are Halloween recipes that we’ve made for years like Flesh and Bones (look for the recipe), a main stay for meat eaters.
