Simple Dinners: Chili dogs for a Crowd

We are at the end of Baseball season at our house, and we are just getting really busy with Football. So i try to incorporate simple meals that will keep my family happy, and keep me from extra work (and DISHES since my dishwasher recently decided to DIE!) So I have been very careful to choose dishes that did not require a lot of extra work. This fun recipe is delicious, simple, and is always a crowd pleaser at our house.

Thank you to Valerie’s Kitchen for a delicious and simple way to cook Chili dogs for a Crowd. You can check out the full recipe now. Be sure to check out the other awesome food ideas when you’re there.

Now I can make a simple a delicious dinner without the added dishes. Valerie even suggests lining the pan with aluminum foil for less mess. That’s a dream come true for this broken dishwasher momma.  You never realize how important those modern conveniences are until they are gone. Its been nearly two weeks waiting for the broken part. Who knew that I would need to arrange meals around not wanting to do dishes? Well thank you Valerie for saving me time, frustrations, and dried out hands!

This fun muddy buddies recipe was discovered by A Pumpkin and  a Princess. It features some incredible Halloween treats that will wow at your next spooky party, or can be handed out as treats at a party or for an after sports Halloween treat!

You do not have to be super impressive in the kitchen, or even incredibly crafty to create this sweet treat. That may be why it is one of my favorites for this time of year.

Halloween Snacks: Pizza Skulls!!

Does your little one have a Halloween party every year? Do you attend a harvest festival or Fall Festival? Or do you just like to enjoy a spooky meal on Halloween? Then these Pizza Skulls are something you want to check out!

Plain Chicken is a fun foodie blog that is stepping up our spooky game this Halloween snack season. My go-to for Halloween dinner is usually Mummies in a blanket, or Spooky Spaghetti. But after checking out this fun recipe I am ready to shake-it-up this year. One major benefit to trying this new recipe is that I can use pizza dough that is gluten free since we have discovered a gluten allergy in our household.

The fun of this recipe is that you can switch it up or add in whatever you want. Are you out of pepperoni? Try using sausage and mushrooms. Want to make it Hawaiian style? Add in Ham and Pineapple. Just like your pizza you can customize it with your favorite toppings.

The skull mold is available at Amazon now. you could even check out these alternatives if you want a different mold.
