Get Your Tricks, Tips for Fun Halloween

Did you know that Halloween originated as a Celtic holiday? Or that people in Germany hide their knives on Halloween night because they believe that it’s the one night of the year when ghosts return to earth? Do you know why Halloween’s traditional colors are black (for the darkness of the night) and orange (for the bonfires that are traditionally lit throughout Europe)?

With just weeks to go, Halloween madness has struck – and not just children! Halloween has become a multi-million dollar industry and is enjoying increasing popularity among adults. Too mature for trick-or-treating, grown-ups are hosting Halloween parties that offer a new take on traditional autumn foods – and giving them a ghostly twist or two!

For some ideas on what to serve at your Halloween party, check out the new e-book from www.CookingClarified.com. “Tricks and Treats: Recipes & Tips for a Delicious Halloween” is available as a free download. Just provide an email address and get lots of ideas (and even more history about Halloween past and present).

My favorite recipe is probably the Butternut Squash and Apple Soup, although the tips on caramel sauce were a close second.
