These tips are great to take note of a week or, a few days before Thanksgiving…

1. Check your cookware and kitchen tools.
In addition to planning your menu, it’s just as important to make sure you have all the cookware and kitchen vintage-1772596_640tools you’ll need to prepare dinner. Do you need a roasting pan, more pie dishes, or a meat thermometer? If you haven’t already, now’s the time to take inventory and figure out what you still need.

2. Get ready to start thawing your turkey.
If your turkey is frozen, it’s time to start thinking about thawing it. A completely frozen turkey needs a day to thaw for every four pounds in weight. And if you plan to brine your turkey, it needs to be defrosted one day sooner.

3. Know how to cook your turkey without a roasting pan.
A roasting pan can be an expensive piece of cookware to buy, considering it only gets used a couple times a year, at best. If you don’t have one and are still unsure about buying one, relax — there are plenty of ways to cook your bird without one.

Halloween Popcorn Pumpkins – (Fall Recipe)

posted by mrscaz

It’s always fun to make things with your children, here’s a fun recipe you can both enjoy.


  • 5 cups popped popcornpop
  • 1 cup candy corn 1 cup chopped salted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 4 drops red food coloring
  • 3 drops yellow food coloring
  • 4 sticks red or black licorice, cut into thirds


Prep - 5 m    Cook - 5 m     Ready In - 20 m

  1. Grease a muffin pan and set aside. Place popcorn, candy corn and peanuts into a large bowl and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in marshmallows, red food coloring and yellow food coloring, adjusting color if needed to get a nice shade of orange. When the marshmallows are completely melted, pour over the popcorn and stir to evenly distribute the candy, nuts and marshmallow.
  3. Use a greased spoon to fill the muffin cups. Insert a piece of licorice to act as the stem, and mold the popcorn around it. Let stand until firm, 10 to 15 minutes, and then pull the pumpkins out by their stems and admire your pumpkin patch!


Carolina Cook

“This recipe is great! It’s very fun for kids and adults. If you buy bagged popcorn do not buy really buttery popcorn. This recipe adds butter to the mixture – you don’t want to over do it. The salty and sweet mix together very well. If you don’t follow the recipe you won’t get a 5 star result. Hope this helps! Thanks for the recipe. The kids at Day Care Loved them!”

“I make these every year around the holidays – people love them. Do not store them in an airtight container though – they have a lot of moisture from the pumpkin and get moist and mushy. They stay great out on the counter for days. Delicious w/ coffee!”
