Happy Halloween! If you have time before you suit up for trick-or-treating, here are a few recommended reads.

Over at At Home with Kim Vallée, it’s been Halloween all week – check out Kim’s Halloween Inspiration Centre for all kinds of ideas to get you in a ghoulish mood before the moon rises tonight.

This Week on At Home with Kim Vallée:

Other must-reads:

Weekend Make | I am behind on my pumpkin carving. So I’m opting for this easy no-carve option (above) from papernstitch.

Weekend Eat | And since, at some point, I’ll either need to carve those pumpkins or toss ‘em, I’m opting for the former (and getting a week’s worth of lunches with this recipe.

Weekend Wear | With snow in the forecast, the days of ballet flats are numbered. I’m wearing these purple Kenneth Cole cuties while I can.

Weekend Watch | Eeps! Zombies are the most terrifying of all Halloween creatures. Still, I’m hunkering down (blankets up to my eyesballs) for the debut of AMC’s Walking Dead tonight.

Husband and I are warming up with a bowl of Baked Beans (recipe to come on Friday!) before heading to our neighbourhood’s bone-chilling Charity Haunt – the Power House of Terror – in support of the Sick Kids Foundation.

Lots of fun things to share this week… if I survive!

I haven’t been cooking much these past few weeks. Instead of Foodie Fridays, it’s been more like takeout Thursdays and scavenged Saturdays and miscellaneous reheated leftover Mondays. Which isn’t very inspiring to write about, or to read about.

The past few weeks have also been full of those sun on your face, wind on your cheeks perfect fall days, which lead to the kind of evenings that make me crave a slow-cooked meal and quiet time in the kitchen with the only the whirl of a spoon, the ca-chunk of knife and a bubbling symphony of smells to keep me company.

Here are a few things on my must-make list – some new, some favourites – which I hope to share on upcoming Foodie Fridays:

Also, I’m NYC-bound in less than two weeks (half business trip/half vacation). It’s not hard to find somewhere to eat in the city that never sleeps, but my stomach would love your suggestions!

1. Because what is scarier than a gaggle of fashionistas? (DIY fashionista pumpkins via Sweet Paul)
2. Because my dentist’s bill will be scary on account of all of the caramels I’ve eaten this Halloween today.
3. Because it’s scary how cute classic Halloween characters can be (Printable Halloween tags and labels, FREE!, Heart Heather for At Home with Kim Vallée).
