Halloween Potluck Special

decorationWith any luck, you’ve been invited to a Halloween Party this weekend. What fun! To relive a favorite childhood holiday with costumes, good food, a bit of cheer and dancing!

Chances are good that it’s a potluck, so here are a few suggestions of what to bring:

If you’re thinking appetizers … try my Chipotle Sweet Potato & White Bean Hummus or Warm Gorgonzola with Caramelized Onions & Walnuts. Or go a bit more elegant with these autumnal crostini …my Sweet Potato & Goat Cheese Crostini or Butternut Squash Crostini with Goat Cheese & Balsamic Reduction are delicious.Or bring something hearty like my Homemade Bratwurst Bites with Horseradish Mustard or Spanish Stuffed Mushrooms.

Your host will be looking for a salad or two … so consider bringing my … Crunchy Salad with Apples & Grapes, Roasted Cauliflower, Radicchio & Arugula Salad or Mixed Greens with Roasted Mushrooms.

What about the main event? A chili or something stew-y is always good for a potluck, especially on a chilly night. My Sort’a Like Jambalaya is always a hit. On the other hand, Pumpkin Chili with Turkey & Black Beans seems particularly appropriate while Pork & Black Bean Stew with Salsa Verde is one of my latest favorites.

You can go all out with my Pumpkin Cheesecake or offer everyone a delicious spoonful of Pumpkin-Ginger Mousse. if you want a dessert with no plate required, well, you can’t beat Mini Pumpkin Whoopie Pies or Pumpkin-Spice Cookies.

Have a spooktacular weekend and bon appétit!
