Happy Halloween! Merry Samhain! The day of all days is here! Today is the perfect day to let go of heaviness, the things of the past, and set good and new intentions as the season changes to winter.
I have had a SPOOKTACULAR Halloween season and year so far and wanted to reflect on and highlight some of my favorite things to celebrate HALLOWEEN.

When you think about Halloween does ice cream come to mind? Perhaps I’m the only one who has ice cream on the mind all the time! It’s the perfect treat for any time of year (for some reason I think I crave it more when it gets cold than when it is hot out!).
I was thrilled when I was asked to work with FatBoy Ice Cream to share some ways that you can spookify your ice cream treats this month!

I love making sweets! Especially Halloween inspired sweets!
Since it’s still too toasty outside to bake in the oven, I chose to get in the Halloween spirit by making a sweet treat using the stove top instead.
The grocery store aisles are becoming fully stocked with Halloween candy and baking goods and I felt inspired to create something ghoulish…so I added a bit of Halloween magic to a basic rice cereal treat recipe to create ghoulish rice cereal treats instead.
Want to make a no fuss festive snack without turning the oven on? Keep on reading!

It’s September 1st, which means it’s basically the beginning of FALL! It’s time to once again bake and make things as full of pumpkin spice as possible (except maybe SPAM which is just gross…). Let’s “toast” to the Halloween season!
I decided to welcome fall by whipping up an easy pumpkin french toast for breakfast.
Celebrate this extended holiday weekend by making some for yourself! Keep reading for the recipe.

Get ready to have your world turned UPSIDE DOWN this week as we are treated with a third season of Stranger Things!
I cannot think of a better way to celebrate 4th of Boo-ly than by joining our favorite adolescents from Hawkins Indiana solve the mysteries that abound in their small, sleepy, and positively 80’s town.
In honor of season three, I decided to create a sweet treat for the occasion and YOU can make these Stranger Things inspired cupcakes for your watch party or summer cookout (Eleven would approve).

Next week will officially mark the first day of summer – but for Halloweenheads, we celebrate “Summerween”, a season where we reflect back on and look forward to the spookiest season. Stores are already sprinkling in fall products and decor, so it truly is the perfect time to prepare for Halloween to give yourself a break from the sweltering summer heat.
Here in Oklahoma we’ve had quite an unusual summer. I would normally find myself complaining and dreading mowing the lawn in our 100 degree plus June temperatures, but this summer has been unusually cool (I’m still wearing sweaters to the office!) with highs close to 80 and cool fall-like evenings and mornings. I’ll take it! Thanks, Oklahoma!
One way to celebrate Summerween is to hone your jack-o-lantern carving skills for the fall by carving a jack-o-melon! I was inspired to turn a summer treat into a cute and spooky character thanks to the Gravity Falls “Summerween” episode.

Tis the season for sweet treats – and what’s sweeter than baking a warm, spicey ginger bread cookie with a sinister twist? Today, to celebrate Creepmas with you, I’m sharing a delicious and easy ginger-dead cookie recipe. What’s so fun about them is you can decorate as creepy as you like! My piping skills are very amateur (which you can tell by the photos), but the sloppiness gives them some character!
I also cut out different shapes to make an evil Santa Claus and spooky snowman. Keep reading for the recipe and some decorating inspiration:
