    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

Spookilicious Dinner Menu

Hanging out at home?  Preparing your monster movie marathon lineup to celebrate?  Hugging your bag of candy while working on  your piles of homework?  Do I have the perfect Halloween addition for you!  Here is the perfect Halloween menu to top off a great holiday in!  (I will most definitely be making many of these….yum!)


Warty Quesadilla Wedges

  • Cooking Spray
  • Flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup bbq shredded pork (1 container)
  • 1/2 cup shedded cheddar cheese
  • 8 pitted green olives, cut in half

Heat oven to 375.  Spray cookie sheet and place two tortillas on it.  Spread half shredded pork on each tortilla and sprinkle with 1/4 cup cheese.  Place another tortilla on top of each and spray with cooking spray.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.  Remove from oven and top with 1 olive half (the wart!).  Cut in slices and enjoy.


Apple Cider Float

  • 2 cups apple cider
  • dash nutmeg
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream
  • whipped cream
  • 1 tbsp caramel sauce

Mix together apple cider and nutmeg in pitcher.  In cup, scoop three scoops vanilla ice cream.  Pour cider into cup and garnish with cinnamon stick, whipped cream, and drizzled caramel. MMMM!

Main Course:

Scary Pancakes

  • 1 6 oz container of orange creme yogurt
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 cups baking mix
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • chocolate chips

In bowl, mix yogurt and syrup.  Set aside.  In another bowl, mix baking mix, milk and egg.  Heat large skillet to 375 degrees (or when hit with water it sizzles).  Spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Drop 3 chocolate chips (2 for eyes and 1 for mouth) on the griddle and pour 1/4 cup of batter over the chocolate chips, then downward into a “J” to look like a ghostly shape.  When puffy and dry around edges, flip cakes over and cook another minute.  Take off griddle and top with maple syrup mixture.

Late Night Snack!

Caramel Choco Apple Fondue

  • 1/2 cup caramel topping, room temp
  • 1/4 cup chocolate syrup, room temp
  • 2 medium apples, chunked
