Halloween Dinner Ideas

Halloween Dinner IdeasHalloween Dinner Ideas

My kids would get a total kick out of these Halloween Dinner ideas!


As someone who really doesn’t like to clean the stove, I love the idea behind this slightly silly looking product called Frywall. It is a silicone splatter guard that fits inside the rim of any pot or pan, so spattering and sizzling food won’t spray out.

Lemony Linguini With Zucchini

Lemony Linguini with Zucchini

Found this mouth watering recipe for Lemony Linguini With Zucchini by Sam Linsell of Drizzle & Dip over on A Cup of Jo. This dish combines raw zucchini with cooked pasta! Yum!

Fake Cabbage

What are you good at? Making cabbage you can’t eat. What?

This Cheese Degrees Cutting Board made me laugh. My dad constantly lectured me and my sister on what angles we are allowed to cut cheese.

How To Make Summer Rolls

I will give this Summer Rolls recipe a try with my kids. Looks so good, and most of all, fun to make.

Soy Shape

These soy sauce dipping dishes by Duncan Shotton take advantage of the natural colour gradation that occurs in soy sauce at shallow depths to give the illusion of three-dimensional shapes once filled. LOVE!

Pickle Person

I am most definitely a Pickle Person.

Food Fortunes

Food Fortunes

Food Fortunes is a take on Tarot and makes divining the sacred mysteries of “what’s for dinner tonight?” a snap. Simply lay the cards out three at a time and voila—a meal appears, a vision from the spirit realm. Food Fortunes can be played alone or with hungry friends to give apathetic appetites a mystical nudge in the right direction. Made me smile.

Wooden Spoons

I approve of the design and color scheme of these simple wooden spoons. Want!

JAM – Online Courses for Kids


I am continuously impressed by what Zach and his team are coming up with. First DIY and now JAM: online courses for kids. I wish this would have been around (and the internet) when I was a kid, growing up on the Swiss country side, *so* hungry to learn and connect with other kids. Can’t wait to see what other classes will be next! (Secretly hoping for a sewing class!)

So So Tasty

In need of some cooking inspiration? The So So Tasty algorithm searches Twitter for conversations and musings about food and then ranks and displays the results, giving you insight into the way the world thinks about food at this moment in time. FUN!

Cast Iron Pan


I love to cook with cast iron pans but have never seen this type of shape. I’d give it a loving home.

Lemon Tart

I hosted a ladies dinner last night and my friend Hayley brought this homemade Lemon Tart. It completely rocked my world. I firmly believe this is the *perfect* dessert: refreshingly lemon-y with a hint of rosemary and of course, a little sweet! I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS TART!

How to Wrap Cheese

Cheese Storage Paper

While visiting my friend in Charlottesville last week I noticed her wrapping her cheese in this super design-y Cheese Storage Paper by Formaticum. The two-ply paper allows cheese to breathe while maintaining optimal humidity preventing the cheese from drying out. Love that they include a video on how to perfectly wrap your cheese on their product page:

Respect your cheese!

Easy Baked Artichoke

I am definitely going to try to replicate this baked artichoke recipe. YES!

Bacon Roses

This Bouquet of Bacon Roses would win my heart. Immediately.

Sfrido Peeler

The shape of Sfrido is quite ap-peel-ing. No?

What to do with that half onion?


Ever wonder what to do with that left-over half onion? Here’s a way to keep it fresh. Made me chuckle.

Ceramic Steamer


This beautiful Ceramic Steamer is a modern take on an age-old design. You can use it directly on the stove or in the oven while keeping the same temperature unlike more unpredictable stoneware. #wishlisted

Egg Ninjas

These Egg Ninjas made me laugh. So unnecessary but funny.

This snowflake cookie cutter seems like a very efficient way to go about cookie making…
