Just when I thought I’d figured out the ‘secret’ to my blog server not taking my posts, it’s doing it again! I posted the recipes FIRST, thinking I’d by-pass the goofy errors it keeps making when it comes to recipes – guess that didn’t work! I can’t down-space the recipes to start writing above them! GO FIGURE! Oh well, since it’s getting towards Halloween and people like recipes for that time and cold weather, thought I’d post some that could be used for both. Enjoy!



ps: Our weather here in mid-Michigan is now staying in the 40’s during the day, raining and cold with blowing winds – Yuck! Nice if you like staying indoors and rooting through your closets for warmer clothes!
