Halloween is a big deal at our house. My husband has always had a fine appreciation for all things creepy and I have to admit that I didn’t love Halloween until I married him. I’ve always loved everything about the fall season (like the menu and the wardrobe), but just not the Halloween holiday itself. But that has changed over the years and now I can honestly say that I love Halloween! Almost 5 years ago we brought our first baby boy home from the hospital on Halloween day. Since my little guy’s birthday is so close to the holiday, the last couple of years, we’ve had Halloween-themed birthday parties and I’ve made quite a collection of easy kid-friendly party food.
Now, I have a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I swear by. I love it, I think it is incredible, and I haven’t changed my mind about that.

These are divine. Truly. They taste just like your favorite breakfast treat but in fabulous cookie form.

"What are you doing?" my husband asked. He was staring at me as if I had eighteen heads, each with 20 piercings and Mike Tyson-esque tattoos. "Making Campfire Bananas," I said. In my head, his question was quite possibly the dumbest one I had ever heard him ask.
The USDA released its new food pyramid the other day (which is actually a plate now instead of a pyramid), and I am sorely disappointed to report that cinnamon rolls did not appear anywhere on that plate. I think by now most of us know what should be on our dinner plate in terms of healthy, well-rounded nutrient-laden meals, but it is my considered opinion that our breakfast plate should include cinnamon rolls now and then. And not just any cinnamon roll, mind you, but how ‘bout a homemade cinnamon roll hybrid that is a cross between a cinnamon roll and cinnamon toast, is super easy to make and gosh darn delicious.
