I love candy too! Found this little gem on Second Wind Leisure Perspectives!!
Halloween is right around the corner and the stores are loaded with bags of candy for trick-or-treaters.
I love my weekly photo challenges and I couldn’t believe that the planets (or pumpkins?) aligned for a photo challenge trifecta!
Nothing is more nostalgic than a bowl of candy for Halloween. I remember loving Tootsie Rolls and Tootsie Pops as a kid.
According to the Tootsie Roll Industries’ company history, Leo Hirschfeld began selling the chewy candies in his little shop in New York City in 1896.
We buy the huge bag and donate most of it to our church’s Harvest/Halloween Festival, then distribute some to the neighborhood trick-or-treaters.

Meet Skill Up Skillet!
I don’t know about you but I’ve been on a big Pokémon kick lately. Also, I’ve been beyond-inundated with work lately (as I’m sure you’ve noticed with my late posts) and needed something fun. What could be easier or more fun than making Poké Ball Candy Piñatas? This recipe (if you can even call it that) is as easy as it gets: Candy shell, decoration, filling. Best of all, no actual cooking required! If you’d like, you could even get creative and use decorating icing to create other types of Poké Balls: Great, Ultra, Master… have fun with it! These would be perfect party favors at any Pokémon-themed birthday party or event.
Just… don’t throw these at people. Or animals. Or anything living, really. Non-gaming violence is bad, mmkay?
I decided to fill my piñatas with a playful combination of Nerds candies and Everlasting Gobstoppers, with a few of my…

There is a healthier solution to every food type. Here is one I found on Canvas of Thoughts for a healthy version of raspberry jam!!
I really believe in trying to better yourself in every way possible. The food we eat has an impact on not only how we feel physically, but also it affects us mentally. When you eat the right food that brings you the vitamins and benefits for your body you are really taking care of yourself. How amazing is that?
Now eating healthy on a budget in todays pricey world is not always as easy to do. Prices have gone up and that is no shocker why we have a hard time adding more healthier options into our meals.
I found this great and very simple recipe. This recipe is probably one that has been passed down through generations, but wondered if many of you knew about it. So had to share it with you because not only is it affordable, only 3 ingredients, but also very delicious.

10 links to blogs with great treats and recipes!
Happy Monday Munchies everyone, I hope you’re having a splendid one so far!
As you read this, I’ll be trundling somewhere around the Emerald Isle in search of Jon Snow (or Kit Harington, I’m not fussy!) so naturally, I haven’t had time to bake anything exciting or describe a full-on cooking
fail fiesta with you. Therefore, I thought I’d share some links to other (much better) bakes and generally yummy things this week and spread the love of food. 🙂

Tony has hit the nail on the head with the post!!!!!!
(comments disabled, visit Tony’s page to comment)
Full disclosure: I ate Ho Ho’s and Twinkies as a kid and loved them just like the other kids. But, I was a child and didn’t know any better. I’m not a kid any more and wouldn’t think of eating them now. We didn’t know better back in the 40’s and 50’s. My mom used to give us Wonder Bread slices slathered with butter and topped with sugar as a treat. My dentist safaried in Africa on that treat years later.
Let’s look closely at a package of Ho Ho’s. There are three cupcakes inside. I was amazed to see that the serving size is all three, the whole package. Usually, they break it down to a smaller number to reduce the caloric count. One serving of the Ho Ho’s yields 370 calories, according to Calorie Count.

I try not to eat to much sweet stuff (although I absolutely love sweets!!), but this looks incredibly yummy!
Is the cake a lie or not? Today it is, but these slushies will get you one week closer to the fabled cake. (Well of course it’s going to be my birthday cake, what did you think?) Portal and Portal 2 are a couple of my favorites, just don’t ask me to play them. For some reason my brain just will not process many of the puzzles presented in the games. I don’t know why, I just can’t. It’s fun to watch others play though. But you know what I can wrap my head around? These slushies! So easy to make, and only two ingredients:
1. Liquid (if liquid = Sprite)
2. Crack (if crack = Skittles)
These slushies are bright and fruity with just a tingle of carbonation on the tongue. The best part? You only need your refrigerator. That’s right; no processing, no blending, no crushing, nothing…
