Top 10 Halloween Cookbooks: Ideas to Die For!

Posted on Oct 18 2013 - 10:23pm by Susan Bewley

With Halloween right around the corner, many of us are looking forward to Halloween parties and trick or treating. Yet, sometimes making those perfect treats for Halloween parties can be a bit challenging. While there are obviously hundreds of different ideas on Pinterest, I normally don't get anywhere since I end up spending the day pinning and not actually picking out recipes (I know, terrible or what?) Even worse, I'm always crunched for time, leaving me quickly scrambling to find adorable recipes for my guests. Of course, this usually leads to mass panic. Rather than give up on making cute stuff this Halloween, I asked my friend Christina from All About the Mommies to help me come up with some ideas. I must admit, the cookbooks she found are making me want to run to the kitchen now and start baking!
