The Weekend Dish: Halloween Treats


What are you going to be for Halloween?

My pumpkins aren't nearly so nice

I’m still undecided costume-wise, but if we’re to heed Martha’s quiz —and what does Martha say that isn’t heeded?—I’ll be vamping it up this weekend while Lydia cackles away.

Artisanal LA served up the best of LA foodstuffs this past weekend and I sampled plenty of sweet treats.   If only the houses on my street would hand these out!

Pssst… all of these desserts—all deliverable– would make a delicious end to an otherwise homemade dinner party.

Incredibly soft and fudgy Cup-o-Java brownies from Embrace Sweets

Coconut Clouds from Bakelab

S’muffins from Gotta Have S’More

A fig tart with pomegranate glaze from Tartist LA

And an LA-centric tea towel from Miss Fruitfly

Ok, you can’t eat it.

But still.

The best treat of all might be gift membership to The Tell Tale SocietyThe Tell Tale Preserve Co., a bakery/patisserie located in San Francisco, is well on its way to beating Santa Claus at his own game.  Membership entitles you to receive a once-monthly burlap parcel stuffed with mystery treats like doughnut boules and red velvet sandwich cakes.


For a sweet and spooky trip down memory lane, remind yourself that some ghosts just want to be friends.

Happy haunting!!
