Candy Corn Cupcakes

 How neat are these. Lisa over at Jersey Girl Cooks has the recipe for us. She even made it in a printable. So thoughtful of her. The recipe is here.

Jack-O-Lantern Sweet Potato Fries

Brooke McLay | over at Babble.com came up with these. In her own words.....

Need a break from all of those too-sweet and sugary Halloween treats? Try baking up a batch of Jack-O-Lantern shaped baked potato fries. They are so easy to make, take less than 30 minutes, and what’s more, big kids (those who are old enough to safely use a small paring knife) can help you carve their own creative faces in the fries. Serve these yummy sweet potato fries as a party snack, or dinner side dish. 
She shows you how here.
