The Real House Blog

Halloween weekend is upon us! I saw a really cute video for chocolate spider cake pops. 2 minutes into the video, I realized I was NEVER going to make them. While the end result is adorable, I don’t have that kind of time.

Here’s the link if you do want to make them:


I want to make festive themed appropriate food! I’m into Halloween! But… I’m also sort of lazy. And cheap. I don’t want to make anything that’s too ridiculous (meaning no one will eat it) and I don’t want to spend all day cooking. I just want to feed my sweatpants friends (code, best friends) cute food. Here is my menu for a non-pain in the ass Halloween party menu. Links to the recipes are in the titles.

About Tamara Hoerner (1256 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

I'd love to know what you think!
