How to Make Caramel Apple Shots
Photo: Michelle Oddis Once in a while, a party trick comes along that grabs our attention. Food blogger Michelle Oddis of That's So Michelle loves making caramel apple shots we can't imagine anyone would turn down. Using, wait for it, real fruit and time-tested formulas for tasty, jiggly shots that stay put in their edible "shotglasses," Michelle's gotten Food Republic on the gimmicky Halloween bandwagon we've been resisting so fiercely. Try out these irresistible boozy apple treats (and don't hold your breath for a candy corn cocktail on our end). Here's what you'll need:

Especially as Americans, we are often given to over-simplification. We like bumper stickers and sound bites. Problem is, sound bites get forwarded, linked, tagged, “liked,” and tweeted. And then the “aha!”
The Pastry Affair - Home - Butterbeer
This is part III in a mini-series of Harry Potter snacks from the books brought to life (part I is on Honeydukes treats, part II is all about the cauldron cakes, and part IV showcases decadent butterbeer cupcakes). Last August, my family made the two thousand mile journey to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. Orlando has always been one of my family's favorite vacation destinations. Add in my love (and obsession) with Harry Potter and we all knew that once the park officially opened I couldn't be kept away for long. On the big day, we woke up at an obscene hour to a bright dawn. While the rest of my family was dragging their feet and speaking in yawns, I was too excited to dwell on my lack of sleep and tired eyes.
Simply Vintagegirl Blog » Blog Archive » Tutorial: How to Make Lovely Fabric Flowers
29 May 2010 These elegant fabric flowers are very simple to make . . . and only take a few basic supplies. The finished product is delightfully lovely, and at times can look like a real flower! Every flower will turn out differently and that is part of the beauty!
For our Harry Potter edition of Friday Food Craft we have some super yummy Shortbread cookies made to look like the Deathly Hallows symbol (the triangle represents the cloak, the circle is the stone and the line is the wand). I chose to cut out my cookies into triangle shapes and then press in the circle and line with the back of a knife, and a bottle cap (washed, of course). You could just as easily cut out circle or squares and draw on a symbol with some frosting or chocolate.

The Pastry Affair - Home - Cauldron Cakes
This is part II of my mini-series on Harry Potter snacks from the books brought to life (part I is on Honeydukes treats, part III features every wizard's favorite drink—butterbeer!— and part IV showcases decadent butterbeer cupcakes). When I was young, I wanted to grow up to be a writer.
crème brûlée french toasts
Filed under the very large category of Things Pretty Much Every New Yorker Already Knew About But Was News To Me (don’t bother trying to hail a cab after noon on a Friday, filthy stoops are irresistible for the chill-minded set, etc.), the City Bakery on 18th Street has some astoundingly good French toast on Sunday mornings. It’s also astoundingly expensive, as things will go at a bakery with sweets like you can’t find anywhere else and an iron grip on its original recipes. Their version is a ridiculously thick wedge of battered bread with a caramelized lid that requires no syrup or other accompaniment — well, except maybe some crispy salty strips of bacon — to make it sing.
make-your-own-pizza party - hollywood housewife
When we have the whole extended family at the lake each July, we each take a night to provide dinner, because otherwise trying to coordinate dinner for 25 people every evening is too arduous. This year my sister-in-law did a make-your-own-pizza dinner and it was so genius that I blatantly stole the idea and had one of my own over the weekend. It's so easy, and great for groups. Here's how I did it:
Mexican Pulled Chicken Stuffed Peppers
I had peppers. I had chicken. I had a million errands to run and wasn’t going to be home most of the day. So I enlisted the help of my crockpot and this recipe came together almost by itself. I topped it with shredded cheese blend of Monterrey jack and cheddar but feel free to use your own blend or eliminate if dairy-free.
Recipe: Black Bean and Beef Chili
Are you sufficiently tired of turkey and Thanksgiving leftovers? I’m finishing up the sweet potato casserole for breakfast as I type this. I have a decidedly non-holiday dinner recipe for you today if you’re looking for a break from turkey pot pie, turkey tetrazzini and turkey soup. The night before Thanksgiving, as I was chopping and cooking away, it occurred to me that I needed to feed my family dinner.
This is one of the go-to dishes I make for my family of six. Rich, flavorful, and totally satisfying, we all love it, including my big, strapping cowboy of a husband. And that’s a very, very good thing.
