Halloween's Coming... Are you ready?

I love making food for Halloween, but it's usually on the savory side.  There's so much sweet stuff out there and some really great ideas, but I'm more of a chips and dips sorta person. 

Here's a few ideas that I've made in the past.

And most of these ideas, work, they're mostly quick and easy.

First off, for those of you who like to decorate, but don't want a honking great big Jack o' Lantern on the table, cause you'd like to leave room for food. 

Get a orange pepper, carve it out a little, stick a battery operated light inside and
VOILA! Carved pepper Jack o' lantern
Here are the instructions. 

Now for the rest of the food...

How about this guy?  A Mummy Head all wrapped up in bacon.
A little gruesome looking, almost perfectly gruesome in fact, but totally delicious when cut into and eaten.  He's a Danish meatloaf called Forloren Hare.  
And you can even make the gravy a little on the red side, by adding some red current jelly to it.

I love making dips and spreads and tapenades, so here's a couple to go with the Spicy Witchy Fingers.

In fact I made this one for the first time this year, and have to say it was amazing, and I kept on eating and eating and eating it. TMI?  Let me just say it was totally delicious.

The first one I'm calling Ogre's Blood and it goes perfectly with these Witch Fingers.

Last year I made a really garlicky dip and called it Vampire's Blood.

I'm not quite done with dips or spreads.  This Green Spider Dip is also fun.

 Or if you're into Deviled Eggs, these 'Tate's Hell Snake Eyes are especially spooky as well as being delicious.

 For some added spice, how about some regular Tate's Hell Eggs?

And to totally confuse everyone, or not.   I love making this Spider Cake along with some Spider Eggs.
