Featured Recipes From Last Week’s Party:…
Are you looking for a creepy dessert for Halloween or to enjoy while watching a zombie show? Zombie Dirt Cake Cups would be the perfect no bake dessert for it.
While I was shopping last week, I came across some neat Halloween edible decorations. I found little tombstones with bones, which I used to make my Graveyard Dirt Cake Cups. I also found zombie gummy lollipops by the baking and candy aisles. I thought the zombie hand lollipops would look great coming out of a dirt cake. If you haven’t heard of dirt cake, it is a pudding mixture layered with crushed cookies served in a large bowl. I usually serve it in little cups for individual servings and it also makes it easy to carry around at a party. These Zombie Dirt Cake Cups are a quick, no bake dessert that are perfect for a Halloween party or as a fun treat for kids.

Slow Cooker Kielbasa and Sauerkraut is perfect dinner for Fall. This German dish only contains five ingredients and is ready in a few hours.
Fall is my favorite season. The weather is perfect and the scenery is beautiful. I also enjoy all the autumn activities and events. One October festival I would love to visit is the Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany. It’s a world famous autumn festival that features beer-drinking and merrymaking. The festival seems like it would be fun and I would love to visit the country where my ancestors lived. My family has lived in the middle of Pennsylvania Dutch country for a few generations now. But we still honor some of the German traditions like eating pork and sauerkraut for good luck on New Years. Since Oktoberfest is happening right now, I decided to celebrate by making Slow Cooker Kielbasa and Sauerkraut….
