20 Spooky Halloween Recipes

Food creativity around Halloween goes way up! I’m always amazed at the things people come up with for this holiday in particular. My theory is that it’s driven by moms up late at night who forgot about their kid’s classroom party — “We only have pretzels and chocolate in the pantry?! Yup, totally looks like Frankenstein!” Either way, these ideas are enviable. But luckily, these crafty folks proudly pasted their ideas to Pinterest for the rest of us to marvel at — and of course copy. Mini Halloween Pizzas It’s genius.

Baked Crab Rangoons with spicy apricot dipping sauce

If you’ve never had a crab rangoon, or if you’ve only had them fried, prepare for your next great obsession. Rangoon’s, or crab puffs, are typically made up of crab meat, cream cheese, and onions with any number of additions such as carrots, garlic or Worcestershire sauce. They are common appetizers nowadays, appearing on most Thai and Chinese food menus in the U.S. While their history is unclear, cream cheese is essentially nonexistent throughout Southeast Asia, so they are likely neither Thai nor Chinese in origin, and yet just another delicious deep-fried, cheesy American invention. When crab rangoons are on a menu, I’m blindsided. I no longer feel the pangs of culinary adventure. I couldn’t care less about the special entrees or appetizers on the menu that evening. My focus is set on those warm, cheesy, crab bites and what surprise sauce the restaurant might be serving with them. I decided if…

National Restaurant Association Names Top Trends for 2017

Chorizo, Cholulah, Sriracha. Just a few years ago uttering these names at a restaurant would have got you blank stares in most parts of the county. Now these food items practically make up the under 40 crowd’s daily diet. Food lovers are finicky. What is flavorful and exciting one year can become tiresome and expected the next. Our taste buds have short attention spans and restauranteurs know they have to stay ahead of the game to keep us dining out. So what trends are hot for 2017? Here’s what’s on the menu according to the National Restaurant Association. 1. Poké What’s this sudden poké craze all about? Enjoyed by the Hawaiian puka-shell-wearing, surfing set since the 70s, poke fits with our current love of healthy, customizable foods. In 2016 we learned we were saying it incorrectly (pronounced poke-eh). This year, we’re learning whether we like salmon, tuna, yellowtail or albacore…
