Halloween DIY: Homemade Simmer Sack

As we’ve discussed before in previous posts, Hell isn’t exactly the most pleasant smelling place, which is why I love projects that smell amazing.  We’ve also discussed my undying love for being lazy (sloth is still one of my favorite deadly sins), and projects that are both cheap and easy to do always rank high on my list.  To that end, these simple simmer sacks are the perfect project!

Halloween DIY: Cinnamon Bat Ornaments

Because Hell tends to stink and sulfur doesn’t exactly scream “Holidays,” I like to make these simple cinnamon applesauce ornaments and hang them all around the underworld.  Not only are they ridiculously easy to make, the end results smell good enough to eat.

Halloween Recipe: Black Salted Licorice Caramel

We’ve covered a few recipes and techniques on this blog that I would easily say cross into the “controversial” category.  From truly disgustingly disturbing looking cakes to the use of real insects, we’ve pushed more than a few buttons and crossed a few culinary boundaries, but have always managed to end up with a dish that is overwhelmingly well received.  It seems, however, that I’ve finally found the one recipe that the majority of you find truly offensive.

Halloween Recipe: The Facehugger Feast Roasted Chicken

So, as some of you may know, I made an Alien’s inspired chest burster turkey last year for Thanksgiving… And while it turned out amazingly delicious, I was also told in no uncertain terms that I would not be able to make another chestburster for this year’s holiday…and because I love my family, I agreed. But nobody said ANYTHING about not making an Alien’s inspired Facehugger chicken!

By now a certain green-hued mermaid themed coffee shop has debuted their Halloween zombie themed drink…which means I’ve finally managed to get my hands on an “authentic” version of it.  While I’m overwhelmingly impressed with how close we got with our original attempt, it wasn’t exactly like the corporate sanctioned version…which is why we’re revisiting our original and making a few small changes.
