We get excited for the spookiest day of the year around here, and this Halloween Brie Cheese recipe is so simple to make.

Brie cheese carved like a Jack O'Lantern on a wood board with crackers and honey.

Whether you’re hosting a gathering or going to a party, it’s fun to arrive with an appetizer like this brie or something from this list of Halloween snacks.

It seems so many of the Halloween recipes are for sweets, but we like to begin the evening with savory Halloween foods.

Especially if your guests are drinking, serving food is important. Did you see these caramel apple jello shots and these pumpkin pudding shots? So fun!

When your guests are ready for something sweet, serve one of these amazing Halloween desserts, like these gravestone Halloween Brownie Bites or Spider Web Cookies. It’s a long list so you’re sure to find the perfect sweet treat!

Mashed Potatoes in the Instant Pot

Making mashed potatoes can sometimes be a bit of a hassle. First peeling potatoes, then chopping, boiling, draining, mashing and seasoning.
