Six Pumpkin Spice Recipes to Try this Fall

‘Tis the season for everything “pumpkin spiced”! Even my husband jumped on the pumpkin spice bandwagon and made some pumpkin butter, which is similar to apple butter, but tastes way better, especially during the Fall.

I’m not a fan of scary movies. I barely made it through Scream, but since Halloween is on Monday, I thought it would be interesting to have some well-known “scary movie” actors and actresses over for a Saturday night Halloween dinner party. So who are my guests? First up is legendary scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween). And then there is Neve Campbell, known for her role as Sidney Prescott in Scream. Also on the invite list is Robert Englund, a.k.a. Freddy Krueger (Nightmare on Elm Street) and Matthew Goode (Stoker). To add a little humor to the night would be Simon Pegg […]
