We cannot get enough of this Nero di Seppia pasta for Halloween!

The jet-black spaghetti pairs perfectly with seafood, like this succulent shrimp dish with lemon, garlic and butter. Insane!

Autumn barn party

25 Oct

Huge thanks to Brenda for responding to our Halloween query by sharing these retro pages from the 1970s:

“I found an October 1973 Seventeen Magazine issue that has a barn-themed party but nothing really ‘Halloween-y.’ The recipes for it are all country-cooking type foods but certainly some pumpkin and apple recipes are included. Would you want to post the photos and recipes for your readers?”

If you are one of those readers who has been searching for the Seventeen pumpkin bread baked in a can, wait no longer (true story: that request has been floating around forever).

Seventeen Halloween

17 Oct

For all the 1980s Seventeen Magazine recipe pages we hoard, none of them are Halloween themed.

Sure, there’s the cute cheeseburger patties from a babysitting supper, and an ice cream-filled navel orange turned jackolantern from October 1987:

 

But we don’t recall any Halloween-themed party or recipes pages, do you?

We did find this hoot owl cookie recipe:owl-cookies.jpg

Here’s a goulash soup page, undated, just for the fun of it. Kind of cold weather and very welcome in any witch’s cauldron, we’d guess.

Nostalgia: McDonald’s retro Halloween

31 Oct

Gah! Spied these darlings on Pinterest and was immediately transported to childhood. How adorable! Remember getting these McDonald’s gift certificates in my Halloween bag. Oh, for a hot caramel sundae right now! The sweet taste of Halloweens past!

The eyes have it!

27 Oct

saucy cherie

We are as obsessed with oven-baked tacos and¬†Rick Bayless’ sauce as we are with Halloween!

It was only a matter of time before our October menu merged with taco night!

We snapped up two sizes of silly candy eyes and are happy to have found a use for them.

Cheerful and cheesy Tex Mex or Mexican doesn’t typically land on our silly Halloween menu radar. But it’s hard to ignore¬†Mexican hot chocolate laden with cinnamon, vanilla and chilies, or pepita, lime and cumin pesto, or even spooky mole sauce.
