What’s Halloween like in your neck of the woods? We here at Emmy Cooks are bracing ourselves for a sugar-fueled whirlwind of a day, complete with daytime and nighttime trick or treating (in the rain), hot apple cider, and an unreasonable number of plastic spider rings that will repeatedly turn up in the washing machine for months to come.
And oh, woah, what do you do about the candy? In past years I’ve simply spirited it away after the one night of debauchery (and by “spirited it away,” of course I mean “I ate all the good stuff”). But my big girls are older and wiser now, and it seems like the right time to teach them something meaningful about making good food choices and moderation. So, yeah, any tips you have on that front would be welcome!
Also welcome will be returning to real food after tomorrow’s sugar overload. The recipes below were some of my favorites this month.
|Italian Parsley Salsa Verde|
|Homemade Celery Salt|
|Green Spinach Soup|
|Savory Oatmeal with Curry, Greens, and Caramelized Onions|
|A Great Big Pot of Minestrone|
|And the readers’ favorite (aside from the recipes above, which were all popular this month): Shakshuka|
Thank you so much for reading and cooking along with me!
