Culinary Inspiration

This Halloween, trick-or-treat yourself to the savory flavors of spooky season! We’re going to show you how you can turn your everyday appetizers into hauntingly delicious dishes without all the double, double toil and trouble.

Butternut Squash and Walnut Soup

Butternut squash soup is a fall staple for festive gatherings; however, with only a few extra ingredients you can add a web of flavor that’ll set your soup apart from the standard. Food blogger, Pizzazzerie, adds a spooky twist to her Butternut Squash and Walnut Soup by adding a drizzle of sour cream in the shape of a spider web, complete with a walnut “spider” in the middle. Whether you serve a cauldron of this creamy goodness as an appetizer at your Halloween party or take it to your work potluck, it’s rich and velvety flavor is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser.
