Spider muffins

For years by sister and I has hosted Halloween parties for a group of friends. I love to cook for people so I tend to bake party snacks. Among those are these scary spider muffins.

I also love making it over a campfire.

Quick tomato bruschetta

Bruschetta is Italian toasted bread with a topping. In this case spiced tomatoes. You can finish it up with a bit of grilled cheese if you really want to but I like it without.

This is one of my favourite summer snacks Keep Reading
