What’s Cookin’ Wednesday #140

You guys. How is it nearly Halloween?

We’re having a costume party this year and everyone in our entire extended family is dressing up as a Nintendo character. I’m going to be Toadette. My daughter is Dry Bones. My son is King Ba-bomb. The husband is Shy Guy.

Lucky for me, my mother-in-law is making my son’s costume and I’ve already made my daughters. I have to finish mine up and make sure everything is ready for my husband to pull his together at the last minute, because he’s a man and that’s what men do, apparently.

Anyway, yes. When my tall and skinny father dressed as Luigi is walking side by side with my shorter father-in-law dressed as Mario down the street trick-or-treating with the kids, it will indeed be the best moment of my life. Hands down.


Thinking about making these Candy Corn Jello Shots from Hoosier Homemade for our party!


This Crispy Onion Chicken from Pretty in the Peak is exactly what I want for dinner this week!


A caramel apple you can feel good about! Ha! Granola Coated Caramel Apples from Premeditated Leftovers


Oh, I’m loving these Taco Stuffed Potatoes from Sweet C Designs!


How good do these Pumpkin Nutella Cookie Bars from Only Taste Matters look?


Forget the take-out! Slow Cooker Orange Chicken Lettuce Wraps from Just Us Four


This Caramel Apple Spice Cake from Lou Lou Girls is just beautiful!
