A Haunted Halloween

Tags: fall, halloween

I just love Halloween. Every year I go trick-or-treating with my grandboys, and they always look so cute in their costumes. I never miss it! From superheroes and Super Mario characters to pirates and tigers, I’ve seen it all, y’all. We’re just a couple of days from Halloween now, so while I’m countin’ down to the festivities with my grandchildren, I thought I’d share some old Halloween specials from Paula’s Home Cooking and Paula’s Best Dishes.

In this first special, Halloween at Home from Paula’s Home Cooking season 2, I’m makin’ some spooky dishes, like my Bewitched Cake, a Cheese Ball Goblin, a creepy Snake Bite, and a Hand Punch Ice Cube. It’s the perfect episode to watch if you’ve got a Halloween party comin’ up.


In Hallo-Deen, an episode from Paula’s Best Dishes season 7, this witchy woman is whippin’ up a Monster Mash, a sweet Corn & Butternut Squash, and some creepy crawly Crunchy Crab Cake Spiders. Then y’all know we have to finish up with something sweet, so I’m bakin’ some can’t-miss Upside-Down Pumpkin-Filled Chocolate Cupcakes.



I hope y’all enjoyed takin’ this stroll down Halloween’s past with me. Have a safe and happy Halloween, y’all!

Paula Deen - As a young girl growing up in Albany, Georgia, Paula Deen never dreamed she would become an American icon. As a young mother, Paula was living the American dream — married to her high school sweetheart and raising two adorable boys — when tragedy struck. Her parents died, her marriage failed and she began a prolonged battle with agoraphobia. With her boys in their teens and her family near homelessness, Paula took her last $200, reached deep inside her soul and started The Bag Lady, a home-based catering company that marked the start of Deen's professional cooking career. With sons Jamie and Bobby delivering lunch-and-love-in-a-bag, beginning in June 1989, Paula turned her life around by sharing what she knew best, traditional Southern cooking.
