Marshmallow Cake-1

One of my favorite things about Halloween is being able to use this day as an excuse to eat more dessert, good ol’ Halloween sweet treats. =) Sure you’ll be passing out candy to trick-or-treaters or to your child’s friends and classmates, but is that going to stop you from sneaking in a piece or two? Of course not, it’s Halloween!

If you’re in the giving mood and want to make treats for your family, friends, coworkers, or anyone else really, you definitely have plenty of options in terms of Halloween-themed food ideas. You can obtain inspiration from my Halloween Board, bake Halloween-themed cupcakes, follow my kid-friendly pumpkin recipes, or do an endless Google search for Halloween inspired dishes.

Today, I’d like to disclose to you a simple, quick, affordable, and SHAREABLE Halloween Sweet Treat called Marshmallow Popcorn Cake. This wonderful dessert is colorful, sweet, crunchy, sticky…

Bottomless Mimosa Guide: St. Felix

LifeDelicacy:

JACKPOT Indeed!

We have been trying to track down the details on the St. Felix Bottomless Mimosa Brunch for what seems like forever. Obviously our efforts were of the laziest variety: checking their website, sending twitter messages, scanning Facebook. All futile efforts for the past couple months. And then we had the bright idea to call them… JACKPOT! And all the glorious boozy information is now in our hands:

Boozy Brunch Spot: St. Felix, Hollywood

Brunching Hours: 11am – ‘whenever’ (quoted straight from our source on the phone at St. Felix) 

Bottomless Deal: $20 Bottomless Mimosas w/ Entree Purchase + Build Your Own Bloody Mary Bar (Not bottomless, cost varies depending on the ingredients you select)

Menu Highlights: No clue. There was mention from our lovely informer of ‘specialty brunch items’, and we see similar mention on their facebook page. But nary a detail is to be found. However, that Bloody Mary…

Cumin-Spiced Chicken and Egg Salad

LifeDelicacy:

You know you want this!

Originally posted on en quête de saveur:

Just because the warm days have left us does not mean that we can’t enjoy summer staples.  This is an egg salad with a protein boost and spice kick.  I thank my mother for this recipe.  She would make this with potatoes and hard boiled eggs and put it in pita bread to make warm sandwiches for lunch.  I left out the carbs and added more protein with the chicken.  Also, this really is figure friendly because it has no mayo that normally lathers typical egg salads.  The cumin adds a comforting warmth and stuffed into a toasted pita pocket, this will be your next go to weeknight dinner this fall !

Ingredients:

1lb chicken thighs, cut into bite sized pieces

4 hard boiled eggs chopped

1 medium onion, diced

1 tbsp of whole cumin seeds

1 tbsp of olive oil

1tsp of chilli powder

salt and pepper to taste

Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes

Originally posted on Desa's Dishes:

A few weeks ago I made an offhand comment in…well, a comment about making these cupcakes as a way to spit in the eye of all my friends with dietary restrictions.  This recipe has animal products, refined sugar, alcohol, gluten…pretty much everything you need to cut people out of dessert time except for nut allergies.  The comment was born out of break-up aggravation and anger, and I figured channeling that through defiant cupcake baking was more productive than lashing out or boring my friends.  Also, it was my sister-in-law’s early birthday celebration the same weekend and she loves these, so win win!  In fact, I first made these when we went bridesmaids’ dress shopping for her wedding two years ago.  Cupcakes + prewedding diets = still totally delicious.

Irish car bombs are a pint of Guinness with a shot of Bailey’s Irish Cream dropped in them and chugged before the…
