With trick-or-treat being tonight, and Halloween tomorrow, I realized I am running out of time for creepy treats! So, for snack today, I made the kids Bug-apillars. They are super easy to make, and took less than 10 minutes to put together. You could probably figure out the recipe on your own, but if not: banana, peanut butter, raisins, pretzels Slice banana and put back together with pb in between.  Add pretzels for legs, and raisins for eyes. You could also use fruit roll up or licorice for a tongue, but I didn’t have anything like that. The kids were surprised by their creepy-crawly...

So, I set out to find a comparable bread that I could make without having to contact, order and wait for a TS representative.  I wanted the airy, yet hearty texture–and the subtle sweetness that goes well with EVERYTHING! After a little research, I quickly realized the only things that come in that little packet for $5.50 is flour, baking powder, sugar and salt…. hmmm… I have that in my pantry on any given day, don’t you? 3 cups flour (sifted-this is important!) 3 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup sugar   1 (12 ounce) can beer (experiment with which beer you like best, in the bread) 1/4-1/2 cup melted butter (depending on your personal tastes)   Direction...
