We really don't do Halloween in Australia - which I haven't regretted. I DO regret not being able to share yours though.

Blessed Samhain. You are just too spookacular. Love you as a zombie, and all that fabulous food. You could do all of this for a food magazine. Glad you had a happy Halloween.

Susan Kane said...

What are a whirlwind! I could eat them all.

Valerie-Jael said...

Fabulous selection of Halloween food, Rain, you really went to town on this one. I would like to be able to eat my way through them all! And going on diet for week after wards would be worth it. Have a great Sunday, hugs, Valerie

You really do go all out for Halloween! In a normal year the kids are trick or treating but other than that, in our house it is the same as any other night. We might have done a little more when my daughter was little, but I really can't remember.

Nancy Chan said...

Wow! You are very creative in your food decoration. That must be fun to everyone in the house when it comes to enjoying all the lovely food.

Hello Rain,

I love all the Halloween photos, the first one is awesome. Your food and drinks all look yummy. I will be checking out your recipe page.
Thanks for sharing. Happy November! Take care, enjoy your day. Have a great new week!

Yvonne said...

All I can say is WOW! Love especially the Halloween pancakes and the enchiladas, but everything is so creative and fun.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

All your Halloween food is ULTRA-FABULOUS! And your jack-o-lanterns rock too.

You really go all out for Hallowe'en! All that food looks amazing. You must have a big selection of "spirits" with which to make all those drinks! Haha. See what I did there? -Jenn

gigi-hawaii said...

Wow, that is incredible, Rain. I would love to have a bite of that pancake. Lol.

jaz@octoberfarm said...

Rosalea said...

How do you find time for your art, with all the food prep??!! It all looks amazing, and bet it was delicious. I'll be checking out some of the recipes. Thanks.

Becki said...

Your creativity knows no bounds, Rain. It all looks so delicious. Pizza Skulls! What a riot.

Toirdhealbheach Beucail said...

That is all very amazing!

(Inserting typical parental warning about playing with your food...)

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Count me in for Halloween at your place, Rain. Who needs trick or treating with such treats as you showed here? I like your idea of celebrating for 5 days and that spider web cheesecake would be my choice as well! We celebrated with some homemade cauliflower-carrot soup, homemade bread and apple turnovers but only for Halloween...maybe next year we'll make it last longer!

Very clever display of yumminess! ~ Looks like you had fun ~

Martha said...

Oh my gosh, everything looks so delicious! Your Halloween sounds like a complete success. Loving the Zombie Rain!

Nancy @ Little Homestead In Boise said...

We put up all of our usual inside and outside Halloween decor. We love Halloween! We did actually have five trick or treaters which was fun. We had our grandsons over one is four and one is five with their parents for an easy dinner. It was really fun they got to play the weather was great and a good time was had by all. Great food You're So inventive! Wish I had the time to do that. I did do devil's food cupcakes for dessert and I use gel icing to create pumpkin faces pretty cute

I’m late to the party, but still I want the boos scotti and a latte right now please (I haven’t had breakfast yet). Then this evening the ghost shake and the spiderweb cheese cake. I’ll send my order for tomorrow later. But I could start wit a Bloody Mary! .... oh wow, seriously I have never seen so many amazing adult treats for Halloween and am quite sure if I were anywhere near you in reality I would love them all . What a fun post...you are a wonder!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Wow Rain, you really made Halloween week delicious fun! Everything looks so good. I am always tempted to buy that skull pan every Halloween and after seeing all your creations I am even more tempted to buy it.

Carol @Comfort Spring Station said...

Jill Harrison said...

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I can't believe I missed this post. I love, love, love your food. I'm SO hungry, now. I like that you are eating vegetarian, too. I really want a mummified camembert innards with raspberry jam. And those Boo-ritos are making me hungry, too.

I don't want to miss any more of your posts. I have your TAD on my right sidebar, but I would LOVE to add your blog to my left sidebar. I will only do that with your permission, though.
