Let Them Eat... María del Mar Sacasa 3 comments

Linus sits in the cold pumpkin patch, silly Sally too googly-eyed and blinded by pulsating pink and red cartoon hearts to realize there is no giant gourd coming that night. Oh Great Pumpkin, humble squash, martyr of October. Stabbed, defaced, lit on fire, hidden in metal cans. I too, am looking forward to your arrival, but in a more tangible form. More

Halloween Treats: Monster Spicy Brittle Candy Bar

Even if you won't be rapping your knuckles on stranger's doors on behalf of your calaverita, this is a festive and curious bread that's worth trying. More

As we get older, Halloween should get more fun, not less. Parties. Pumpkin beer. The realization that you can buy as much of your favorite candy as you want without any social stigma. Halloween becomes the holiday that embraces our younger selves as well as our mischievous adult natures. I'm not the biggest pumpkin fan, but on Halloween I go nuts. More
