  • Let’s Talk Wine…oween and the video I didn’t share

    Let’s Talk Wine…oween and the video I didn’t share

    So…way back in October, I recorded three of the five Halloween wine tasting videos I intended to share. If you go back and look, only two of my tastings were actually shared. So today, out of prosperity (and because I like to try wines I haven’t before for the Halloween season), I’m sharing my tasting […]

  • Visiting Chronic Cellars Tasting Room

    Visiting Chronic Cellars Tasting Room

    I imagine most people are home now, back from their tricks and treatings, or have doused the candles on their alters. We, as a family will be wrapping up our Halloween celebrations with a “Graveyard Gallop” to some of our loved ones’ resting places this coming weekend as a belated homage to Day of the […]

  • An Angelically Devilish Union

    An Angelically Devilish Union

    To be honest, ever since I started cosplaying, it’s always a struggle to decide what to wear for Halloween! The irony! A closet full of costumes, but nothing quite fitting for the holiday. This year was no different and proved even more of a challenge with Little Monster thrown into the mix. I was determined […]

  • Pumpkin Guts Sensory Play

    Pumpkin Guts Sensory Play

    This has been something I’ve wanted to do ALL of October. And it figures that I didn’t get to it until now. Such is the life of a mom… I was genuinely hoping to have a couple different pumpkins and other gourds for this activity, but in the end, just two different kinds of pumpkins. […]

  • Return to Dell’Osso Family Farm & Corn Maze

    Return to Dell’Osso Family Farm & Corn Maze

    I feel like I fully took advantage of my Dell’Osso season pass this season and I did promise you I would return. Since I shared my last experience at the beginning of the month, I got to visit Dell’Osso an additional two times! Our second trip, we brought Little Monster’s walking cart, which made for […]

  • 6 Music Videos Inspired by Stephen King

    6 Music Videos Inspired by Stephen King

    This was a hard playlist to compile! Well, I mean, it was a challenge because I was looking for non-screamo/metal/ heavy rock songs. If you look in those genres, your list doubles rather quickly. However, for a list of easier listening music, this was a challenge for me. I got a lot of inspiration from […]

  • The Pilgrimess Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    The Pilgrimess Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    The Pilgrimess is an interesting ghost. In life, it was never fully confirmed if she was indeed a witch, but the cocktail that was inspired by her actually honors her name, Isabella. We’ve substituted grenadine with pomegranate liqueur from the original recipe, but it still turned out delightful. The Pilgrimess [amd-yrecipe-recipe:14] What choice would you […]

  • The Angry Princess Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    The Angry Princess Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    The Angry Princess is a very depressing ghost to me. A beautiful woman who just couldn’t see the beauty in herself and brought her life to an unfortunate end. For this cocktail, I was inspired by the “Pretty Lady” recipe which came out beautiful looking then added some pomegranate liqueur for that red mistake the […]

  • The Torn Prince Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    The Torn Prince Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    Today’s cocktail is inspired by the Absolut Boston Home Run recipe with my own special twist. The Torn Prince was a baseball star who was taken too soon in a car racing incident. I’ve made his cocktail more bitter with the  juice choice as an ode to the bitter swift end of his little slugger […]

  • The Withered Lover Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    The Withered Lover Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    The Withered Lover is the ghost responsible for inspiring me to want to create the Dark Zodiac Cocktails. I knew what drink I wanted to make for this ghost quite a few months ago. Inspiration from the only kind and gentle ghost of the Dark Zodiac, the Withered Lover is the ghost of a loving […]

  • The Bound Woman Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    The Bound Woman Dark Zodiac Cocktail

    The cocktail choice for this particular ghost was a little bit of a challenge. I wanted something flirty (since that is what brought about this ghost’s demise) but not too sweet or whimpy. This ghost was very self-centered and vain  and I wanted a cocktail that also reflected this. I feel like egg white drinks […]
